Here is an easy floor-cleaning tip that you won’t believe!
I’m in the process of having a huge renovation project completed at my home.
One word: Bathrooms.
Another word: Chaos!
(Did you miss my post about how to clean the easy way? Here it is!)
I clean every day, so not being able to have a clean home is driving me crazy!
So far, my guest bathroom is 95% complete, and I’m thrilled with the results.
My master bath has been demolished, but is just today being rebuilt.
All of this work has resulted in a huge amount of drywall dust everywhere.
It’s far easier to get it off of the furniture than it is the floor.
A few years ago, I had hardwood installed in most of my home, with tile in the kitchen area and bathrooms.
At that time, the installer told me to use a Bona mop solution on the hardwood, and a wet Swiffer pad on the tile.
Sounded reasonable to me.

I’m using a different work crew this time, and one of the installers told me how to clean the dust quickly and inexpensively.
Easy Floor-Cleaning Tip:
Yeah, I know.
I was shocked, too.
The key is to use enough water to saturate an old washcloth. Ring it out so there are no drips. Use the washcloth as a wet Swiffer pad, stopping often to rinse it out and mop in a different spot.
Using an assembly line makes the process go faster, too. Alison, the installer, said to have my daughter in the kitchen, getting the washcloths wet and ringing them out when I brought her dirty ones.
We tried it, and it works.
Keep in mind that, with major messes, it may take multiple cleanings.
For daily or weekly cleaning, this process still works well and saves you a ton of money.
Bonus: This easy floor-cleaning tip also works well with tile!
Whenever I can clean without chemicals, using resources I already have, I’m thrilled!
