We’ve been longtime fans of Bona Floor Cleaner over here. With near-black wood floors, toddlers and lots of foot traffic, we can’t imagine life without it. Especially in the winter! They sent me an email last week about their new PowerPlus deep clean microfiber mat and cleaner, so I picked some up on the way home on Friday.
Sundays are our cleaning days around here, during nap time. But I had a special guest this time around (nap strike!), so he got to join in on the Bona floor cleanin’ fun. Both boys are really into “cleaning” at the moment, mimicking everything I do. They love to help me mop, sweep, dust and use the dust buster. We’ve got to work on the cleaning windows though—they take the term “spit shine” a little too literally. 🙂
I try to thoroughly clean the floors once a week, but I’ve been known to do a mid-week session if things have gotten particularly out-of-hand. Spaghetti nights usually get us there real quick :). These dark floors show everything and while weekly sounds like no big deal, it’s tough to find time to get it done. That’s why we’ve stuck to the Bona all these years—it’s incredibly quick and easy to use. (We’re also really big fans of their Free & Simple product, especially when the kids were crawling and putting lots of floor finds in their mouth.)
So here’s the deal with this new PowerPlus line—it’s all about a deeper, more powerful clean. An improved microfiber deep clean pad and a new hardwood floor deep cleaner make up the line, and everything fits in the existing mop (which I was worried about—my actual Bona mop is a few years old). I was particularly excited about the microfiber pad, as it’s machine washable and promises to perform 70% better than other cleaners. It also has a slightly rougher texture, which was excellent when I needed a bit more scrubbing power. So far, so good.
Nixon got a kick out of this whole thing, by the way. Not only did he get to use the super-fun mop, but mom was taking pictures and this boy was loving the attention. He ran over to see the preview screen every time he heard the shutter go off—so, so cute.
Now, here comes the good stuff. I’ve got a $3.00 off coupon to share–to be used on any type of Bona floor cleaner you’d like. You have to sign up to their Bona Fanatics mailing list, but as a subscriber myself, I can attest to the availability of coupons, tips and tricks.
Do you have super-dark floors? What’s your trick for keeping your floors clean and shiny? I’d love to hear your floor secrets!
Happy Monday everyone!
