One of my least favorite household chores is mopping. I know many of my family and friends also dread mopping their floors. That’s why I’m thankful for brands like today’s sponsor, O-Cedar, for making the lives of busy moms like me, easier and giving me cleaner floors with great ease.
My downstairs entry from our garage gets a lot of foot traffic. A LOT. It’s a walk-out basement where our 800 sq. ft. family room is, so that’s a lot of square footage to sweep and mop. Because it does see a lot of foot traffic, I need to mop it more often than I would like.
When we remodeled our downstairs we put laminate flooring down and marble tile in the two entries and exits to the room. I wanted something durable, long-lasting, and beautiful, and marble fit all three.
At the time we laid the marble I was 8 months pregnant, now 14 years later, the marble looks just as good today as it did 14 years ago. As I mentioned earlier, I do have to sweep and mop it often, though, because you either come from our garage onto it, or from our backyard/patio onto it. A lot of dirty shoes, feet, and paws, walk on it to be sure.
While I was in the cleaning supplies ailse at Walmart I picked up the O-Cedar ProMist mop and made my way home so I could try it out.
I’m in love with the O-Cedar ProMist Microfiber Spray mop. It is so light and easy to use. It requires no batteries, the refillable bottle could not be easier to remove (with it’s one-touch release), fill with whatever cleaning solution you choose, and snap it back on. It’s a
life back saver!
I sometimes use floor cleaners for marble, but I discovered a few years back that a quick and easy DIY marble cleaner was more economical and more efficient at cleaning it. And it’s only 2 ingredients + water…
DIY Marble Floor Cleaner
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda (if you have the O-Cedar EasyWring Spin mop use 2 Tbs)
- 1 teaspoon of your favorite Liquid Dishwashing Detergent (a generous squeeze for the EasyWring Spin mop)
- Water to fill line of the ProMist cannister (1-2 gallons of water for the EasyWring Spin mop)
Tip: Before you mop, be sure to sweep the area you plan on mopping for any dirt or debris.
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…
- Remove the refillable bottle from the mop and add your floor cleaner or DIY cleaner and water and snap it back onto the mop.
- Press the lever on the handle to release the cleaning solution and start mopping away.
- Remove microfiber pad and toss it in the wash.
You can use the washable microfiber pad or disposable cleaning pads. I don’t mind washing the pad, just make sure you air dry it and never use dryer sheets on them. I think I’ll pick up some disposable pads, though, especially since school is starting back here Friday, just for the time-saving aspect.
It has a double-sided mop head, which means you can clean longer without stopping or flip between wet/dry sides.
I also love how it swivels a complete 360, making it easy to clean around and under things. My husband doesn’t even mind mopping now. Talk about a win-win for me!
I have cleaner floors with far more ease and the mop costs less than $25 (incl. tax)!
Now I’m off to use my O-Cedar ProMist with a laminate floor cleaner on my laminate floors.
Be sure to stop by your local Walmart and make you life easier with the O-Cedar ProMist Microfiber Spray mop because I really cannot recommend this mop more!
