M is for Mop: Blogging from A to Z Challenge


I know it is a trivial thing but when you have hardwood floors there is nothing better than a good mop. A couple years ago, we had the old linoleum in our kitchen removed and replaced with nice tile. We also had the hardwood floors in our home sanded and stained, restoring them to their original, yet slightly scarred beauty.

For the past two years we’ve relied on the Swiffer for the kitchen and have treated the hardwood gingerly with some fancy dust mop the floor guy gave me. Well, that hasn’t really cut it.

The other day I was in my local Price Rite and picked up this little beauty, an O-Cedar EasyWring spin mop, for the low price of $19.99. I know, it’s a mop. Big deal. But it has a cool little spinny thing that extracts the water, making it a true damp mop. And it works great, combating the dust much better than any dry mop could. I have never been so excited to mop my floors.



Now if only I could get my kids as excited about mopping as I am!
