Life Lesson Learned While Cleaning My Floors

Now I was going through a list of prompts I have and I came across one that said, “Share a life lesson learned while doing something seemingly mundane, such as cleaning your closet.” The funny thing is that I had posted something similar back on May 18, 2021, which was called “House Cleaning”, but I realized that the post was solely dedicated to the bathroom. I am not sure why I wrote that piece back then, I think I was trying to do like a tutorial of some sort. Mine happens to be about, cleaning a bathroom.

I was thinking about this prompt again and thought, why not talk about what I do or the lesson I have learned throughout the years when I clean my floors. I happen to have a small marble entrance, wood floors throughout the house, and tile in the bathrooms.

The lesson learned for me was the products that I used for each type of floor. It sometimes consisted of many different brands and products, and most of the time I was not really happy with the results. So, after trying many products throughout the years, I finally found one that had everything I wanted and made all my floors look nice.

I like to use Bona products, only because I have seriously tried a lot of other products for my floors and they always leave a streak, smudges, or really don’t clean all that well. Bona, in my case just happens to always work, so far, the results have been great each time I clean the floors, and I have to say that we do clean our floors with the products once a week, but we do dust every day.

To clean my marble floor and tile bathrooms I start with Bona Hard Surface Floor Cleaner, which is a gentle formula that is perfect for cleaning sealed natural stone floors, tile, laminate, and luxury vinyl. I then follow up with Bona Stone, Tile, and Laminate Floor Polish which simply adds more protection and of course gives the floor a nice shine.

For my wood floors, I like to start with Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner, which is a little pricey, but I promise it will be well worth it. You know your floors are an investment and they need to be kept up, in my opinion. I follow up with Bona Hardwood Floor Polish, now this product is for all unwaxed, unoiled, polyurethane-finished wood floors. They do have a product for oiled and waxed floors. It comes in two formats, High Gloss and Low Gloss. I like my floors to shine, so I go with the Bona Hardwood Floor Polish High Gloss.

Of course, before I start, I like to remove all the objects I can, like chairs, mats, etc., from the floor. I then do a thorough cleaning or dusting of all the floors. Now, I do happen to use Bona dusting products as well, like their microfiber pads and their Hardwood Floor Premium Mop. Trust me, having only to remember one name brand makes cleaning a lot easier. Also, when you have your kids help out, they don’t need to keep asking you which product to use, because all the products clearly indicate what they are for.

Note: I have about 2000 square feet of wood floors and that spray bottle lasts me a solid two months cleaning once a week.

So my lesson learned is the use of Bona over the years for all my home floors. I did link the items below. Now I am not trying to sell things, but if you happen to like one of the products or would like to try them, why not help out a fellow blogger, just saying – no pressure.

With that, I thank you for stopping by and I will try to leave you with a thought that is related to cleaning, “Cleaning is never fun, but it doesn’t have to be hard. Test new products, find a brand that has it all – maybe Bona. Turn on some music and rock that floor – happy cleaning.

Here are the items I use to clean my floor

Strange but true, I was born in San Salvador, as an abroad US citizen. It sounds strange, but you see, my mother was 5 months pregnant and happen to be visiting San Salvador. She slipped and fell in a pool and well, I was born. I am a twin, but unfortunately, he did not make and I did. My mother’s side of the family happens to be well of, and I had the opportunity to live a nice life early in my childhood. You know, private school, servant, nice home, and vacations. Things change when my mother decided to follow my father to the United States and well, that is where my story begins. I started a blog a while back, but life sort of hit and I left it behind, but now as I am a bit older, I decided I needed an avenue to share my experiences with others, while at the same time allowing me to open up and talk like I am on someone’s couch, I guess you could say. This blog will be more like an open book, created by experiences that I have had throughout my life. Experiences that many could relate to and what I did or how I handled it, you know after the fact. You never know there just might be a piece of information, idea, an option that someone could use and it would help them through the experience. Just remember these are my experiences, things I have been through, work through, and lived through – it does not mean I am right, but it does not mean I am wrong – it is simply an experience.
