  • I use a mop in the kitchen, but about every 4th time I scrub on hand and knees. Bathroom is always hands and knees. I never wear gloves for any cleaning.

  • I wipe up with a mop but every week or so scrub on my hands and knees. I wear gloves becaue my hands are so chapped as it is from being in water too much as it is with potty training and cloth diapers and just all around cleaning up the babies and kitchen.

  • No. My poor knees and back cannot handle that anymore. I use a mop.

  • I was thinking about asking this same question earlier when I was doing my floors! I have all tile floors in my house, with a 4 year old and two big dogs, I sweep like 3 times a day and mop every day. I use a mop, I would go insane if I had to wash them on my hands and knees every day. I do go around on my hands and knees once and week and wash the baseboards all around the house though, and no I don't wear gloves.
