How to keep floors cleaner longer

The floors are the basis of making our homes look tidy.  By regularly cleaning your floors your house will feel clean and fresh.  How often you clean your floors will vary between each household.  If you have a crawling baby, you will need to clean regularly to pick up all dirt, grime and germs before their little hands do.  Kids running from inside and outside will also bring in a lot of dirt therefore regular cleaning is necessary.  However, if you live alone and work all day once a week clean is sufficient.

I used to have one of those mops but found that it was far surpassed by Norwex. I can’t even give my old one away now, I’ve been trying for nearly 3 years! Find a local consultant, they will come by to show you the mop and you can decide if it’s right for you.

Where do you buy a norwex mop from?

What about slate? We got rid of all our carpet and have 1/2 slate and 1/2 floating timber floorboards. Have a roomba type thingmy which is awesome on the floorboards, but it doesn’t like the slate. Too expensive to rip up, but it kills all the mops etc (currently have Enjo) and it is difficult to keep clean?

U have just bought a ergorapido cordless vacuum with a handheld DustBuster attached. My boys and I love vacuuming now, they even know to put it back on charge when it runs out of battery.
Before or after their bath each night they take turns doing the main room and they do their own bedrooms ( they are 4 and 2.5). My floors are always dirt free. We also got the Rubbermaid mop. So my 4 year old has taken to doing that now also, but as sometimes he sprays too much or it doesn’t need doing I just remove the bottle so he can’t spray.

I cheat a little. I have specific days where I clean the floors of different areas of the house (so it’s not a big job all at once). I vacuum all carpeted areas on Tuesday, vacuum and mop bathrooms, toilets and laundry on Thursday, and the rest of the house on Saturdays. Then on Wednesday (more often if I know we will be having visitors) I let my robotic vacuum cleaner loose. I know it won’t get everything so I don’t rely on it. I sweep the kitchen, dining and entryway daily after I’ve done the dishes. It works for us 🙂

I like your designated floor cleaning days, Tracy!

Hi all, I am a Norwex consultant if anyone is interested in the mop. We now have a double sided mop system which is awesome!
