cleaning your hardwood floors quickly & easily


Ben playing in kitchenIt’s no secret I don’t love cleaning (except when I’m mad!) but I still love it when our home is picked up and smells clean! My first few days home after quitting my job were SUPER productive. One day I did 10 loads of laundry. Yep, I was that far behind. And well, I promised myself I’d stay caught up on everything, the house would be picked up every night, and I’d be cooking more dinners at home. Well, none of those things has happened for me. Well, not yet, any way. Maybe some day, right? 

There are SO many different cleaning schedules and I’ve been trying, but none seem to work for me yet. Maybe I am just so far behind that I still have lots of catching up to do? Well, I may not have my entire house spotless, but my wood floors look better than ever! 

With a toddler and a baby who is just starting solids, our kitchen floors don’t exactly have it easy. I have tried lots of different sprays, mops with pads, traditional mops and nothing has ever made them look clean. They end up filmy, streaky, or sticky AND they take forever to dry. Which isn’t a good thing when you have a crazy toddler running around. 

This Bona PowerPlus Hardwood Floor Deep Cleaner is AMAZING. You just use the dusting attachment on your Microfiber Floor Mop to collect the dust and dirt from the floor. The handle on the mop is adjustable, perfect for kiddos who want to help around the house! Then swap out the microfiber attachment for the Microfiber Deep Clean Pad, spray the cleaner on your floor, and wipe it up! It’s as easy as that. For tough spots, you may have to go over the spot a few times with your mop, but it will come right up!

The Surfactant loosens tough, heavy build-up, the oxygenated formula penetrates for a deep clean, and finally the bubbling action enhances and lifts away debris. Woo hoo for cleaner floors than ever before! …and, just in time for the holidays. Seriously, your floors have never been cleaner or shinier, and you won’t believe how quickly your floors dry.  It’s amazing! 

So, if you haven’t tried it yet, the holidays are the perfect time to give them a try. You’ll love them!

Do you love cleaning your floors or hate it? If you’ve always hated it like me, maybe this will make you love it!

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
