Floor cleaning toos - I like my mop!
by: Jaydee

Finding a kitchen with no carpet was important to me as I find it hard to cook without splashing everywhere. I do have a good vacuum around before I slosh my old fashioned mop over my tiles. I love the feeling of satisfaction I get when they are gleaming and clean.

Steam-It's all You Need
by: Mara

I use my steam mop for every floor I have except for my carpeting. I love it. It cleans and I can use it daily without worrying about leaving residue for my kids to get into. My husband bought it for my birthday and it has saved me a lot of hard work.

Dyson
by: Mike

My wife has been bugging for a Dyson vacuum too and I say it's just too expensive. We are having a heck of a time keeping our tiles clean. I was told to never use bleach on them, it ruins them (color and grout). We were told to just use warm water and vinegar?

I wouldn't use bleach
by: OneTwin

Some good tips here but I wouldn't use bleach on my floor. Apart from fading the colour of the tiles, it smells awful and is just too toxic a substance to put on the floor where little ones may crawl.

Simple Mop
by: Momof12

One of the simplest mops is to use an old t-shirt, cut a small hole in the center and slide it over your broom. It takes a little bit to get the hang of it, but it works great. The nice thing about it is that you can wash the t-shirt and keep it clean, too. Thanks for the advice about floor cleaning tools.

Keeping it simple
by: RuthAnn

I have to agree that the first line of defense is the good old fashioned broom and dustpan. My tile floors are so small I just do them by hand with vinegar and water.

soap and water is always best
by: Maureen

I always run my Dyson over my vinyl floor first then to use my mop with its disposable head. You can buy all sorts of floor cleaning tools and cleaners nowadays to use with a mop but you can't beat old fashioned soap and water!

Dying to get a steamer
by: Misty

I have a floor steamer on my Christmas list this year and I really hope I get it. I am so sick of mopping! Those steamers look awesome because they dry at the same time so there's no waiting to walk on the floor. And it looks a lot easier than ringing out a mop and dealing with dirty water.
