Just because you have a toddler doesn’t mean your house has to be destroyed. Use these hardwood floor cleaning tips to keep things clean even amidst toddler life.
If you’ve read any post on my blog or follow me on Instagram, you know by now that I have a toddler. A just turned 3-year-old boy who is active, silly, and messy. Whether it’s tossing cereal in the air trying to catch them in his mouth or putting crackers into every nook and cranny he can find, there is constantly food all over the house. And remnants of that food and the most recent juice box, the one he accidentally squeezed even though I said not to, on our hardwood floors.
Let’s just say our floors are pretty much a mess.
Over the past three years my biggest secret to keeping a clean floor with a toddler was to not clean them at all. I like to keep things real over here and over the past three years, I’ve had a local woman and clean my floors for me. I work hard and would rather spend my time doing things other than cleaning.
Unfortunately with all of the travel we’ve been doing, my cleaning lady hasn’t been able to come because I’m not home regularly enough to get her in my schedule. It took just about a week of gross floors before I realized I couldn’t just wait until she came back to clean again. Walking on sticky juice and play-doh pieces was ruining my day.
I needed a new secret.
When I visited my mom for The Craft Escape back in March, I noticed that her hardwood floors were sparkling. Like see yourself in the floor kind of sparkling. Their house is on the market right now so the floors need to look gorgeous constantly. I wanted her floors.
My mom uses The Bona PowerPlus cleaning system (by recommendation from her realtor) and like everything else in life, I took my mom’s advice and tried it on my own floors.
Absolute game changer. Check out the before and after.
No more scrubbing the floor on my hands and knees. The Bona PowerPlus Deep Clean Floor Cleaning System is Bona’s most powerful cleaning system yet. It includes the Bona PowerPlus Deep Cleaning Solution, which loosens tough, heavy build-up with its oxygenated formula, and the Bona PowerPlus Deep Cleaning Pad, a microfiber pad that gently breaks apart and loosens tough dirt via the twisted nylon scrubbers while the dual zone pad absorbs and traps dirt. The combination of the solution and pad together provides three times the cleaning action and not only cleans floors, it brings beauty back to them. Totally the reason my mom’s floors look so amazing all the time.
My hardwood floors still aren’t as pretty as my mom’s, but they do sparkle and shine thanks to Bona. It’s my new secret to surviving a toddler lifestyle without anyone having to know!
