Works for me Wednesday


It's time for Works for me Wednesday again. Several months ago I read this tip in the newspaper, but never tried it. This weekend I decided to test it and it really worked. This idea is for cleaning your floors. This works for vinyl or tile, but is not suggested for wood floors. Take boiling water, and pour just a small amount (1/4 cup or so) on area of floor to be cleaned. Let it set for about 30 seconds and wipe with a rag. I had a 2 cup measuring cup filled with the boiling water and just poured out a little at a time. I tried this on my bathroom floor, which tends to get a sticky residue from hairspray. It worked amazingly well, and doesn't take long even though you are cleaning a small section at a time because all you have to do is wipe it up. It also worked well on the baseboards where dust settles. This is cheap, non toxic and easy. It works for me! If you want to check out more tips, visit Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer.

That's a good idea- I'll have to try it on my kitchen and bathroom floors. I'll just have to be careful not to pour it on my feet in the process!
