Safe floor cleaning!

Ireland licks the floor. 


Don't act like your perfect kid has never done it!

...and she crawls over every square inch of this place. 

Safe (clean!) floors is a must!

I hated cleaning my floors with a totally grossed me out. Not to mention my 5' stature struggled with the height of the pole. 

So then I transitioned to the Swifter. I always ran out of cleaning pads and when I saw there was a crap load of ingredients I couldn't pronounce, I said buh-bye. 

Low and behold I found a new method that I'm pretty smitten with!

All you need is: 

hardworking feet
good music
vinegar (so cheap at Costco!)
essential oil (I use orange)
hot water
 large bowl  
old towel

Start music. Mix equal parts hot water and vinegar. Add 10-15 drops of essential oils. Soak towel in mixture. Lay towel flat on floor. Stand on towel with both feet. Skate around your house until every inch has been touched and cleaned! Let dry. 


Warning: you will burn some calories! 

Happy natural cleaning. Let the licking continue...


  1. I love this! I think my toddler would really enjoy helping mama do this! :P

  2. That’s a very safe and fun cleaning idea! Now, you can clean your floors without any hassle. It can also serve as a form exercise if you add entertaining music with it. Your kids can even join the fun, since the materials are all safe. It's like hitting two birds with one stone, right? Hahaha! Anyway, thank you for sharing such a clever idea, Katie! More power to you! :)
