With the new floors in my place came a "shoes off" policy. Still, that doesn't mean Baxter won't drool on them and schmutz won't get on them.
That's Baxter's drool. The treat jar is just to the right of this photo.
EcoTimer, the company that made my flooring, recommended using cleaning products by Bona on the floors. I had never heard of them, but their website listed Lowes and Bed, Bath, and Beyond as vendors. So, during my bi-weekly Lowes trip to pick up birdseed and whatever else jumps off the shelves into my arms, I looked for the Bona.
I passed up a big bottle of cleaner because I hate the idea of sloshing too much liquid on my floors. That's when I saw something that looked like a Swiffer WetJet that had the Bona name on it. I figured I'd give it a shot. I have a WetJet that I used on my laminate floors, but didn't like that I was constantly recharging the batteries and I couldn't get the spray to arch and cover a large area.
I am so happy I picked this thing up. It doesn't have batteries. When you spray, it's as if you have a traditional bottle of cleaner with a really long neck. Lowering the handle lets you arc the spray so it covers a large area with a thin coat of cleaner. I tried to get an action shot, but it wasn't completely successful:
Cleaning up the floors took just a few minutes and there was no smell at all from the cleaner. I honestly had my doubts, but I'm really happy. The company isn't new, but I had never heard of them. Has anyone else even heard of Bona before?
Once again, I didn't get any perk for writing about this thing.
