I have linoleum in my kitchen. It has tiny divots in it which catch dirt. That bugs me. A lot. I try to mop every week, but lets be honest, I have a three year old. I have written about another way I have tried to keep my floor clean. Pine sol in a spray bottle. That worked for a while. Those divots still catch the dirt. Lets face it the only way to get that out is to scrub it by hand. I’m tired, I don’t want to spend and entire day cleaning the floors. (that is how long it took me the last time I got down on my knees with a brush.) I found a green alternative that is cheap!
Cleaning the floors with Hydrogen Peroxide.
Cleaning with Hydrogen Peroxide is great because it acts like bleach, but does not hurt the environment. Basically I put it in a spray bottle and doused the floor with it. I noticed that the longer it sat on the floor the less scrubbing I had to do. (ten minutes or longer) While I was waiting I went to my closet and got my brush and mop from my handy closet organizer! (full review in the next paragraph) I still had to take a brush to the floor to remove the dirt from the divots, but I only scrubbed for about an hour. That cut my scrubbing time down 6 hours! WOW!
I received the Greenco Mop and Broom Organizer for free in order to write this review. I sweep my kitchen daily with a broom. I usually end up mopping and scrubbing every other month because of those nasty divots that catch dirt I was talking about earlier. This organizer helps me to have a place for my broom, dust pan and mop. I’m not always searching for an out of the way place to store them (but still handy since I sweep daily). The organizer attached easily to my pantry wall and with in minutes I had a way to store my mop and broom!
