The Libman Freedom Mop rocks!

I hate cleaning. Even more than that, I hate mopping.

So several years ago, I decided a Swiffer mop would make my life easier, with the pre-mixed chemicals and the pads that I could just throw out when finished because I was totally grossed out by my traditional mop sponge with all that filth staring back at me.

I was OK with the Swiffer, but to be honest, I didn’t really feel like it did a terrific of  job of cleaning my floors. And it left a sticky residue behind that just seemed to collect more grunge. Besides, I got kinda tired of paying for the solution AND the pads, and I started to realize neither was really good for the environment. And then we got a puppy, who licks everything and I really didn’t want him licking up the toxic solution.

Then I saw a commercial for the Libman Freedom Mop. I had just mopped with my old brand, when I decided to go out and purchase the Libman. I came home and tried it and the cleaning pad was filled with dirt when I was done! So much for the Swiffer actually cleaning…

Here are three other things I like about this mop:

  • It has a container and you make your own “solution” or use a store-bought one. I like vinegar and water. It’s cheap, non-toxic and cleans really well.
  • The pads are machine-washable. So all you do is rip it off, throw it in the wash and use it again. No more wasting money or adding to the landfills!
  • The Libman doesn’t require batteries. Just another little cost savings.

I even found a $5 rebate coupon on their website, so I only paid like $15 for the thing! And it’s a much “greener” option than the other brand.

At the end of the day, the Libman mop makes cleaning just a little bit easer. I never thought I’d say that I actually love a mop…

Poetry winner from Memoir (and)

I discovered this wonderful poem in a pub called Memoir (and). The poem is “Flannel,” it’s written by Charles Rutter and it made me cry on the first reading of it. Lovely.

7 post challenge

Earlier in the month, Problogger, layed out a challenge to other bloggers, to create links to posts in their own blog, from 7 different categories. So here goes!

  1. My first post: I’ve mentioned before that this is most definitely not the best post on earth, and I wonder why I started my blog with this one. But I guess I had to start somewhere!
  2. A post I enjoyed writing the most: My most recent flash fiction, actually, is one that just flowed off my pen. It was easy to write, and I think it was pretty good.
  3. A post that had a great discussion: I don’t know if it was discussion, as much as condolences, when our beloved, Lewis, died.
  4. A post on someone else’s blog that I wish I’d written: When I read this post, I exclaimed, “It’s so good, I could swear!” I wish I could write poetry this beautiful.
  5. My most helpful post: I think the one on visiting Milwaukee must have been helpful, because it’s gotten a lot of hits and searches.
  6. A post with title that I’m proud of: I am pretty sure this one got alot of traffic because of the word “massage” in the title. Go figure, if you put something sexy in your title, you’re gonna get hits. Maybe some creepy ones, but hits nonetheless.
  7. A post that I wish more people had read: Most of my faithful readers will have read this one, but I did wish more had read it. I feel selfish saying that, but I liked it and wished more had seen it.

If you do this take up this challenge, link to your post in the comments below. Have fun!
