Day 9: Make my own floor cleaner
This is another one of those things that I keep saying I’ll get around to, and then just end up buying Swiffer refills over and over. I adore my new darker flooring, but good grief, does it ever show the dirt. We have to sweep multiple times a day to keep it looking decent. (Thankfully I have plenty of child labor available.)
Since I only own a Swiffer mop I still ended up using one of the wet wipes, but I was able to do my entire house without changing it out. I was pretty impressed with the results of this formula, although the kids ran through while the floor was wet so I have a ton of footprints showing up. Such is life with kids, though.
DIY Floor Cleaner
(modified from this recipe)
1 Gallon of hot water
1/4 cup washing powder
1 TBSP dish soap
1/3 cup white vinegar
Once everything has dissolved, go for it. It left my house smelling really nice, too.
