Floors you can really eat off

Wednesday, July 2, 2008

Those who know me, know I think cleaning is a great way to relieve stress. Having recently moved, being 3 months pregnant, and raising a 1-year-old you could say stress is a factor in my life. So today I set out looking for something that needed a good cleaning. Anyone who has ever been a parent to a small child knows that if there is something on the floor it will eventually end up in their mouth. Van is no exception. So the floors are something that continually need cleaning. When we moved we were required to leave most of our cleaners behind, including any kind of floor cleaner. It was just the motivation I needed to try one of those "homemade" cleaners. My little experiment turned out better than I had planned. The floor is spotless with no leftover reside, there are no harsh fumes that I need to worry about, and (surprisingly) it doesn't smell like vinegar. Now Van can eat off the floor, heck he can lick the floor, and I wont have to worry about a thing.
