Holiday Floor Cleaning Singing

I’m happy to have partnered with O-Cedar for today’s post brought to you by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser however all opinions are entirely my own. #CleanForTheHolidays #CollectiveBias

With Thanksgiving in a mere 11 days, it’s time to start thinking about Holiday preparations and all the cooking and cleaning that come along with it.  And while you’re whipping your home into sparkling clean shape,  I’m also here to help with a little holiday floor cleaning singing. Because you know what might make the cleaning part of your holiday prep a little less miserable? Singing.

You ready?

Here we go.

Dashing through the house, not as quiet as a mouse.

I need my floors to shine, so the mother in law will not whine.

O-Cedar help me out, please do not make me pout.

My Holiday will glisten, if you would just please listen!

OH!

Clean my floors! Clean my floors! Clean my floors to-day!

Oh what fun is to mop, with O-Cedar leading the way.

HEY!

Clean my floors! Clean my floors! Clean my floors to-day!

Now that you have my jingle permanently embedded into your brain, let’s chat about the O-Cedar Microfiber Spray Mop. I know what you’re thinking. Why, Aimee? Why are you boring us with a post about a mop?

And that’s because this would be my THIRD mop to try out since moving into our new house.

THREE types of cleaning mops, people.

I am slightly OCD when it comes to my hardwood floor cleaning tendencies and it doesn’t help that I have dogs who shed.

And track in dirt.

Who us??

I’m not a dog shedding type of person. I love them dearly but I don’t do clumps of dog hair in the corners and if we’re being honest here, I wouldn’t jump for joy to eat at someone’s house with 3 dogs unless I knew they were on top of their cleaning game.

My current routine is to run the iRobot/Roomba on alternating days. On the days that the Roomba doesn’t run, I swifter with a disposable cloth to get up the dirt and hair, then use the Bona wet mop to make them shine. So basically I sweep/mop/deal with my floors EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. And on the days that I swiffer plus wet mop, I do it twice. With two devices.

That was, until, I discovered the O-Cedar Pro Mist.

It affords me the ability to run the washable microfiber pad over the floors first-using the zone scrubbers to break up any dirt and grime and scooping all the hair that those faces you saw all comfy cozy on the arm chair leave behind. Those scrubby things are where it’s at.

In the spirit of transparency and so that no one thinks my house just magically cleans itself, I’m going to share something with you that I will probably regret later on.

(This is what happens when I go out of town for a conference and return to floors that have missed me. YIKES.)

After I clean up all that dirt pile, I simply detach the microfiber pad, rinse it off (I pull off the dog hair & put it in the trash rather than risking clogging my laundry room sink), wring it out and let it dry, add in my favorite cleaning solution (I use Bona cleaner for hardwood) and reattach a disposable pad for the spray mop. The liquid holder on this mop was developed to use any cleaner you prefer. So if you don’t have wood floors to be concerned with, you can just put in something recommended for your floor type.

So now, while I’m still going over my floors twice, I’m at least doing it with one device which means I’ve made more room in my broom closet!

And if there’s anything just as important as having clean floors for your holiday company,  it’s having things organized. You never know if someone will accidentally open the broom closet thinking its the pantry and you don’t want to be horrified when 5 mops topple onto their heads.

You can find the O-Cedar Pro Mist Mop at any of your neighborhood WalMart stores. Just look for the red branding, and the one with the big loop for the handle.

Can we still be friends now that you know how dirty Stella, Milo & Murph make my floors?
