Do you mop or hand scrub your kitchen and bathroom floors?

I always scrub my floors by hand with a scrub brush, I just don't think a mop gets it very clean. But when I tell people that they look at me like I'm crazy. I know I'm not the only one who does this, am I?

  • No, you are not the only one. I hand scrub my bathrooms, and in the kitchen I use a mop, but once a week I scrub it by hand

  • im with you on the idea that the mop doesn't do the same but I am older now and I just can't take the hands and knees anymore

  • I would love to hand scrub but preggo and can barely put on my pants lol. I think you are doing good job. definately scrubbing is better if you have the time to do it

  • I'm with mamachamp. I think my mom does an excellent job, but I will do hard spots. I'd look at you with the crazy eye....LOL.

  • i do both. about 2 times a week I mop and once a week I scrub on hands and knees. I agree that mops don't get everything up, which is why once a week I do it the old fashion way, lol.

  • I have always hand scrubbed my floors. I just do not feel that the mop cleans them well enough.
