all hail

how do you have a clean floor when you feed zoo animals, three times a day, in a confined space?  it’s called genius.

seriously.  this little number is a microfiber cloth spray mop by leifheit.  it squirts a solution of two ounces don aslett’s “clean and brite” mixed with one court of water.  my guess is that i could get 8 uses out of one tank.  that’s like cheaper than the dirt i’m mopping up.  it’s ever ready, grab and go.  light, beautiful, no batteries, the solution is ph neutral with optical brighteners and no residue – which makes my floors looks fab.  i am so happy.  after all these years.

the trick, of course, is to mop every night.  otherwise it’s out-manned.  but if you keep on top of it you have a perpetually clean kitchen floor.  which is all i ask.  and it seriously takes less than two minutes.  some people don’t have to worry about it so much if they have very forgiving linoleum.  but mine doesn’t.  forgive.  ever.

    Would it work with hardwoood and murphy’s oil or does it have to be Aslett’s stuff?

    they don’t really recommend murphy’s because of the build-up on the floor. and it might clog the nozzle too. the aslett stuff works on hardwood though. fortunately my wood floors don’t show very much and i only have to do them once a week.

    do you have to order online or can you buy at a super store?

    you can get them online several places. and usually for the same price you would put out for the american version (the rubbermaid reveal). which you can get at target and home depot. i am very impressed with the styling on mine though. i would have to feel up the rubbermaid one first to see how it compares.
