what cleaner do you use for the kitchen floor?

I used to use the swiffer spray mop but I heard they were bad (chemicals) so I switched to a homemade vinegar cleaner and cloth mop. To be honest I miss the swiffer lol

  • I heard bad things about the chemicals but honestly, I still use swiffer. It's so much easier. I was thinking about emptying the bottles and using a less harsh chemicals and I would still be able to use my swiffer just not the same chemicals. I may write to them and suggest they make an organic or close-to organic cleaner to use with the swiffer. That would be pretty neat.

  • emmiesmom I'm suprised they havent done that already or that there isnt a safer alternative off-brand on the market! if you ever make your own and use the swiffer, please let me know if it works just as good!

  • we use vinegar! i just put a cup full or so with some water and a cloth mop! i miss my swiffer too it seems to work a lot better but with a baby crawling around would rather not use it! it would be cool putting vinegar in the swiffer bottle thing and giving it a try! hmm i might have to do that!

  • I usually use my steam mop - but once a month I mop with water and MelaMagic - really cleans the floors nicely and is toxic free :)
