Happy Sunday! Today I am sharing a mother and son edition of a Power Hour Cleaning spree. If you have never heard of the Power Hour method of cleaning before, you are totally missing out! A power hour is simply setting aside one hour during the day to get as much cleaning done as possible. The best way to do this of course is to turn off all distractions, make a list of the tasks that you would like to get completed and simply just get started. I first discovered this new way of cleaning on You Tube and I instantly knew that I had to try it and who better than to do it with than my teenage son Manny.
You know what can make your power hour even better? Amazing cleaning products! This is where Libman Products come to the rescue! I have been using Libman cleaning products for as long as I can remember which is why I was super excited to try their Spin Mop, Microfiber duster, No Knees Floor Scrubber and their designer bowl brush and caddy. The right cleaning products make all the difference in the world. As exhausting as cleaning can be, in the end it is worth it to have a nice and clean home. Make sure to keep reading as I have an awesome surprise for you courtesy of Libman.
Fun Fact: The Libman Company was started in 1896! For over 120 years, the Libman family has been creating quality products that once started with wire-wound corn brooms and now include mops, brushes and many more awesome cleaning tools! Their mission: Bringing the world a better way to clean through innovation, design and quality.
No matter what type of cleaning I am doing whether it’s laundry, cleaning the bathroom or doing the dishes, I need to have music playing. If I am home alone, I will blast the music on my mini speaker that I carry around with me from room to room. If my son is home, I will wear my wireless headphones however either way, I need to have music on as it helps me get moving and let me just tell you that I get everything done so much faster.
My son is the exact same way. When I announced that we were going to be doing a Power Hour cleaning together, of course he made a face (typical teenager) but then I told him that he could wear his headphones to listen to music. I made a quick list of things to do, split it half and we each went our own way. As long as we got everything done in an hour, that’s all that mattered so we could go on with our day.
The list that I created consisted of dusting, sweeping and mopping so between the two of us, we cleaned the living room, bathroom, hallway and of course he did his own room. He was the first one to use the Microfiber duster to clean his entertainment center, nightstand and dresser. My son has mild asthma and allergies therefore it is important that his room is dusted room thoroughly and regularly. The microfiber duster was awesome at picking up the dust immediately and the ergonomic handle makes it comfortable to hold when dusting for an extended period of time.
The Spin Mop was super easy to use. After you assemble the mop, place the head of it into the stainless steel wringer. The mop handle can be adjusted to your preferred length by releasing the locking lever. All you have to do is push the handle down one time if you want the mop to be damp and a couple of more times if you prefer it to be a bit drier. Both the mop head and the microfiber duster cleaning pad are machine washable.
In an effort to use more natural cleaning methods, I used these three ingredients to mop my floors:
1/2 Cup White Vinegar
1/2 Tablespoon liquid dish detergent
1/2 Cup Baking Soda
1 Gallon of Warm Tap Water
Let’s face it, cleaning the toilet is not on anyone’s list of favorite cleaning tasks. The one thing that we can admit to is that once it’s all said and done, it is refreshing to know that your toilet bowl is sparkling clean and disinfected. When you have the right cleaning tools to help, it makes the chore so much easier which is why the designer bowl brush and caddy is a must have. It doesn’t look like your typical toilet brush because not only will it look great in your bathroom, it’s special design will prevent it from tipping over and the toilet brush will dry so much quicker.
My absolute favorite Libman Product is the No Knees Floor Scrub! The amazing floor scrubber did an amazing job cleaning my kitchen and bathroom tile floors without having to get on my hands and knees hence the name No Knees! But….guess what else I used it for? The floor to ceiling tiled wall of my bathtub. I’m going to be 100% honest when I say that I despise cleaning my bathroom because I have yet to find the best and easiest way to clean this tiled wall. This No Knees Floor Scrub has a pointed head which helps get into all of the corners and crevices of the wall. It also pivots 180 degrees which makes it even easier to get all of the tough spots, even the high ones that short people like myself can’t get to.
At the end of our power hour, the house was cleaned and we were ready to start the rest of our day. If you’ve never tried using any of the Libman products that I have mentioned and/or the many others that they have available, you definitely need to check them out.
