With prepping for the garage sale and move over the last month housekeeping has not been a top priority. I’ve tried to keep things picked up as well as possible by vacuuming, sweeping and running the Swiffer mop across the floors.
Well, I thought I was doing better than I was! Darn it! After the rooster rug was rolled up from the dining room floor and there was a definite color difference in the tiles. It’s easy to believe that if the tiles had been sealed before moving in, this might not be quit the job today. (It’s a rent house.)
This morning I have tried about six or seven different methods of cleaning the floor. I want the quickest and the best job. By golly! I think I’ve found it. Thank goodness the weather is nice enough to open the doors for ventilation. After filling an old spray bottle with *ammonia, undiluted, I spray the floor liberally then use my trusty new blue scrub mop. (It’s been around for a while but it wasn’t labeled as a scrubber.) To give myself even more work, I use a rag and clean hot water to wipe clean.
*I had rather use vinegar but I don’t have enough for the floors and other cleaning.
