Rather than use the one-and-done wet mop cloths that are pre-moistened and you throw away after one use, I was looking for a re-usable mop for hard surfaces that I could put my own cleaning solution in. I ended up purchasing the O’Cedar ProMist Spray Mop which works well (even after over a year of the kids “helping” with it!). This mop allows me to use my own floor cleaning solution (you can use a store-bought solution too) which saves me a lot of money. Here is the recipe:
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 2 tbsp Dawn dishwashing liquid (the brand is important as that is the best to cut grease & grime)
- 2 tsp alcohol (this will help the floors dry quickly without streaks)
- fill bottle to full line with water after you put in the other ingredients
This solution works great on linoleum, hardwood, or tile floors. Check with your floor’s manufacturer before using any cleaning product.
