30-Day House Cleaning Challenge: Floors!

house cleaning

I must have ESP or something, because I did 1/4 of today’s 30-Day House Cleaning Challenge assignment yesterday!

Today we had to clean all the floors in our house. Since I worked on cleaning the bedrooms yesterday, I only had to vacuum the main levels and the basement, and mop the kitchen/living room.

We were expecting company this evening, so I thought I would wait until after dinner to do my cleaning. I’m so glad I did…while I was making dinner, I accidentally knocked over a container of cinnamon sugar and it spilled all over the stove and floor 🙁


I love my steam mop for cleaning the floors…it does a great job and uses nothing but water!


It feels good to have a spotless floor! (Although with two kids, a dog, and a cat, it won’t stay that way for long ;))

  1. Erin, that was good thinking to wait until after dinner to clean. It never fails at my house that the spill will happen after I clean. Your floor looks very nice. I love my steam cleaner too.

    1. Thank you Shelly! I was mad that I wasted all that cinnamon sugar by knocking it over, but I would have been even more angry if I had spilled it all over a freshly-mopped floor! 🙂

    1. Hi Sarah…thanks for stopping by! We have laminate floors on our main level. For some reason, it seems like they get dirtier faster than linoleum floors (or maybe it’s just that I can see the dirt more easily?). I used to buy a special laminate floor cleaner, which was pretty expensive, but now I just use plain water and the steam mop and the floors turn out great.
