It’s so hard to believe that our summer break is almost over. Soon, we’re going to be back to the busy days of crazy schedules, after school activities, homework, and quick meals. Every other year I’d also list a messy house, but not this year. We’re going to work smarter together with The Libman Company cleaning products.
With 4 kids, I’m always looking for better cleaning supplies. We’re a little rough around here and The Libman Company knows their way around cleaning products. For 120 years, the Libman Company family-owned business has made quality their priority, offering the finest USA-made brooms, brushes, mops, and cleaning tools. On one of our latest trips to Walmart, I grabbed the Libman Wonder Mop.
The Libman Wonder Mop has microfiber GRIPSTRIPS™ that lift up to 20% more dirt for cleaner floors.
There’s also a power wringer, so you can remove more water from the microfiber mop head allowing your floors to dry faster. Because if your house is like mine, life isn’t going to stop just because you mopped. And then you’ll have to mop again. It’s kind of an endless cycle.
And, for those of us with multiple floor surfaces, the Wonder Mop works great on all surfaces. The best plus, though, the mop head can be machine washed up to 50 times.
Because the Libman Wonder Mop is so easy to use, it’s a great mop for kids to use as they help around the house, too. We make a few messes around here. Whether it’s from tracking in dirt from outside or our many kids craft projects. Those messes need to be cleaned up, though. It’s not all fun and games. Though chores don’t have to be a, well, chore. Here are a few tips to make chores easier.
Kids Can Clean: 5 Tips to Make Chores Easier
Ask What’s Age Appropriate – Now, I don’t expect my just turned 1 year old to scrub the toilet. But soon, he’ll be able to pick up his toys. Then, we’ll go from there. My older kids are perfectly capable of doing the dishes and vacuuming. My oldest mows the yard and walks the dog. Starting around 5, we had them wiping windows and dusting.
Get Fun Cleaning Supplies – Chores are always better when you have fun supplies to clean with. The Libman Wonder Mop not only makes mopping our floors easier, but it’s kind of neat to watch the Gripstrips in action. Also, for multiple kids, get each their own cleaning bucket filled with their own special supplies.
Make Cleaning a Game – Everything goes faster when you’re having fun instead of dreading every second. Play music, set a timer, start a scavenger hunt of who can find lost items. Whatever you have to do to make it fun. And set a reward when chores are done so there’s something to look forward to.
Work Together – When a group works together toward a goal, it’s amazing what they can accomplish. Work as a team.
Do a Little Every Day – If you’re not a fan of chores, the only thing is when you haven’t done any chores in a couple of days. Everything piles up and it’s overwhelming. It won’t seem so bad if everyone does their 15 minutes of cleaning every day.
