Cleaning the floors - ugh
When you have carpet throughout most of the house, it's easy to vacuum and clean it up. But with wood and tiled floors, it's more of a challenge to clean. I've found that cleaning the floors on my hands and knees is most effective. The other day, I was spot cleaning some crayon off the floor with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. And it clicked, why don't I use that to clean the floors? I did cleaned the floors yesterday and went through 2 Magic Erasers. I think the floors were extra dirty, even though I vacuum and sweep and mop every day (or every other day for mopping). Dirty just surfaces. It worked great. I love using the Magic Eraser on toys and other tough spots, but I never thought to use it on the floor. I would suggest (as it does on the package) to test a spot before cleaning any surface with it. I've never had a surface it couldn't clean, but you never know.
