  • I use the traditional mop and bucket. I actually HATE using a mop, and would rather do it on my hands and knees, but my back has been so bad, and being preggo, it isn't happening right now!

  • Vinegar and water with a traditional mop and bucket. I have all white tile floors so I've tried everything from swiffer wet jets to Hoover hard floor cleaners to that Shark Steam thing and I always go back to a regular old mop and bucket.

  • Hands and knees is best as far as getting the floor clean. I usually use a swiffer.

  • I use the sink and a mop. I have a couple mop buckets, but I can't use them. I always, and I mean always, every single time, tip them over, step in them, spill them all over. :-( Even if I set it on the counter so I don't trip on it, I'll turn and my elbow will knock the bucket of dirty water everywhere. So, I plug the sink and fill it with hot water and some cleaner and do that.
    Then, bleach it out when I'm done!
    I love my mop. My husband brought it to me from work. They were changing the company they were getting their cleaning stuff from and gave the remaining stuff to the employees. :-) Now, I got a good mop!!

  • I do not use a mop, I use a wooden pole with a stick across in the bottom and then drape a piece of cloth, kind of like a towel, and rinse it in a bucket to wet and to dry. This contraption I use is used by Cubans, it works much better than a mop. It has a name but the translation of it is hard!

  • I sit on my butt and use a sponge with a bucket of vinegar and water...too cheap to buy anything fancy! lol

  • I prefer to just scrub the darn thing, I spray my cleaner and dance around on a towel for quick jobs. Good work out too. LOL
