I am a self proclaimed germaphobic neat freak. My house is far from perfect 100% of the time, but I try to stay on top of things. Floors are something I'm a stickler about. I LOVE clean floors! If your floors are clean, your whole house just looks and feels better. A few years ago we tore up all of our remaining carpet and put down Pergo (laminate) flooring. I LOVE this because of my mud lovin' dogs. It is so much easier to wipe up my floors vs. scrubbing carpets.
we first had the flooring installed I bought a Swiffer Wet Jet.
Needless to say, I was dumb. Dumb! It was AWFUL! I had streaks and a
film on my floors. After using it for a week I was just about nauseous
because my floors looked so horrible. It took me several "washes" with
vinegar water to even start getting that nasty film off. After I did, I
vowed to never use that horrid device again. Those cleaners are
expensive, wasteful, and not environmentally friendly.
Then I found a microfiber mop very similar to THIS one
and really liked it. I would just fill a bucket with warm vinegar
water, put the pad in, ring it out very well, and mop. No streaks, no
film, cheap. Have I mentioned that my husband HATES the smell of
vinegar when I'm cleaning. He knows it will disappear, but he still
hates it. I used this method and this mop for the last few years. My
mop still works, but I wanted something different.
Once I discovered Shaklee my floors sang a song of praise! They have a two cleaning products I'm absolutely in LOVE with....Basic H2
and Basic G (germicide). The Basic H2 is seriously the best cleaner
I've ever used. It is so versatile, eco-friendly, cheap, and NON
TOXIC! I bought my 16 oz bottle of Basic H2 a year ago (before we
joined Shaklee) and I still have 1/4 of it left. Don't think it is
because I don't use it. I do! Several times a week. Two DROPS of it
in 16 oz of water makes your streak free window cleaner! So I use it
for my all purpose cleaner, floor cleaner, and window cleaner. It can
also mixed up as a de-greaser, but I don't really have a use for it.
Talk about saving money!
I decided to upgrade my microfiber mop to a Rubbermaid Reveal mop
and I love it! It is so much sturdier than a Swiffer wet jet, requires
no batteries, and I'm able to make my own inexpensive and eco-friendly
Basic H2 on my floors twice a week and Basic G on them once a week. They look wonderful and I am confident the products are safe for my family and pets.
