Growing up, I struggled with asthma and allergies. Coughing made sports difficult, and the asthma and allergy combo made any common cold a nightmare. My mom would have a tray of medicine and written schedule of what to take at what time in an effort to avoid having to use another round of steroids.
Flash forward 20 years, and I find myself following my mom's steps to help my son with his Asthma, only I’m not half as organized. Every week, my mom would do "dust mites" as she called it. A mega cleaning of my room, washing all my bedding, and freezing my stuffed animals for 24 hours to kill the dust mites and keep my coughing at bay. It was no easy task.
Now with three, soon to be four kids, I find myself struggling to keep up with the dishes and laundry let alone minimizing the dust mites and allergens in our house. When I heard about Bona Floor Cleaner through MomsMeet and how it was recommended by the asthma and allergy association I was so excited to check it out. This mama will take any help I can get!
I was super impressed with the price point. For $19.99 you receive a mop, two reusable cloths and sample disposable cloths. My mop has a velcro attachment which means the cloths actually stay on without moving or falling off. The Bona mop is also SO much bigger than my old swifter so my floors are cleaner faster! I also love that it comes with reusable cloths! That cuts back on spending and waste which is a win/win!
I shared the Bona Floor Cleaner with my MomsMeet friends and they loved it too! It's maneuverable, reasonably priced, and it's sturdy. To demonstrate the cleaning power, I let the kids walk in crunched up chalk outside and make footprints in my kitchen. Then, they got to mop up and watch their chalk paths disappear. Fun!
Finally, I brought the mop over to my mom’s house to help her clean and do “dust mites.” After years of helping me manage my asthma, my mom is managing her own- so I was so excited to help reduce the dust and allergens in her home with Bona. Now, her floors are over 200 years old. General Rochambeau and his army walked right by their front door during the Revolution, so I was extra cautious with their antique wood floors. But, the Bona floor cleaner got rid of grim that had been building up in the corners and by the thresholds of the floor for years!
Swiffer got swifted and I'm a Bona believer!
Have you tried Bona? How do you keep your floors clean with lots of little feet constantly on the move?
