Remember the days long ago, when the only thing you needed to do was clean the flloor?

Yeah, me neither. I pride myself in my ability to be able to find the quickest way to do mundane tasks. Like it is one of the first things listed on my resume. Cleaning, laundry, cooking, the list could really go on and on but you get the point. So leading up to the New Year I have been working a ton on streamlining my processes. Yes when I say it like that it makes me feel way more important while scrubbing those toilets. Clearly my degree is in business and I try to use it as much as possible.
Overwhelmed is going to be my word of the year for 2018. I never could catch up. Not liking that feeling it is only natural that I figure out a way to change it. One of my goals for 2019 is doing a little bit of housework everyday to help this. With a dog, two young kids and a husband the chances of living in a house that is clean all at the same time is not even on my radar. But instead of letting it pile up and then using a full day to tackle it, I’m creating a schedule that will let me do a little bit everyday (and nothing productive on the weekends). I will of course be sharing with you all once perfected. But before that happens, I want to share a sneak peak of how to clean your floors in 15 minutes each week.
Now prior to switching to Bona PowerPlus Hardwood Floor Deep Cleaner system I used a mop and bucket. My floors stayed murky, it took forever to dry, used a ton of water, and took too long to get completed. With it being the holidays, house guest visits increase, holiday get togethers and parties are of abundance, as well as just being a lot more busy the last thing we all need is more work. After trying out the Bona PowerPlus Hardwood Floor Deep Cleaner system I knew I could officially toss that old mop to the curb and finally have shiny, clean floors.
How to Clean your Floors in 15 Minutes each Week
1.) Sit down meeting with the family to let them know if they spill something and the dog won’t eat it, they are responsible for immediate cleanup of said mess. It is easier to get the sticky messes up when they are fresh.
2.) Every other day I do a quick sweep to get up dust bunnies. Literally while walking around picking up stuff I grab the using head to the Bona and off we go.
3.) No shoes inside. I have little bins for them to throw their shoes in as they come in from the garage. I do not ask guests to take their shoes off. We don’t have little ones crawling around on the floor so I prefer to not ask that of people. Personal preference of course.
4.) Rugs at the doors to be able to wipe dogs feet as she comes in especially during these old, wet months.
5.) Pick a day of the week to clean floors. Thursdays are my days. I drop the kids off at school then come home and quickly dust the floors before turning on my favorite podcasts. I like Thursdays because those are the days I am home all day working. I can easily take a work break to clean the floors for 15 minutes. Its a great mental break too.
Keep in mind this is dependent on a lot of things such as your kids age, how many meals they eat at home, how many pets etc. My kids are old enough now we don’t have daily spills. My dog is relatively clean and hates being outside so you might have to adjust.
6.) Invite your friends over to see those shiny new hardwood floors.
After one use of the Bona PowerPlus Hardwood Floor Cleaner I knew this was a game changer. I wasn’t sweating and out of breath like most floor cleaners from having to scrub so hard. The Bona PowerPlus Microfiber Pad was like magic just erasing the ground in dirt from the week. The best part, it dried so quickly and cleanup is a breeze and I am back to work before I know it and I can check that off for the week and get ready for my girls night happening tonight at my house.
