I have always used Swiffer products for my floors. I used to just put on a Swiffer wet pad and scrub all of my floors. When I first moved into my house it had hardwood floors. I had no idea that you should actually be using a separate cleaner for wood. So I went out and bought the recommended wood cleaner Bona for hard wood floors. While still using Swiffer for my tile floors.
I really liked the fact that my kit came with reusable pads. I felt like I was saving a ton by not needing to buy boxes of wet or dry pads. I have been also looking for ways to reduce waste in general and use more reusable products vs disposable. So this was a win win for me. I eventually switched from using the disposable wet pads for my tile also and discovered that Bona products work great for tile too. Best of all it is Safe for Pets!
I am not only reducing waste and saving some money on buying products I will throw away after one use. I am also saving storage space.
Seriously look at the difference!
Before I would buy the pads in bulk because this helped save a little money. Now I only have a few pads that can be washed and the two different sprays. One for hardwood and one for tile. At first I tried the disposable wood floor wet pads also. So I had two sets of wet pad boxes. As I ran out I decided not to replace it. I actually feel like the washable floor pads worked better any way.
So now I have a couple different pads that I can just switch out. I have 2 normal cleaning pad, 1 extra scrub pad, this one has harder green bristles going down the sides of the center, that works best in my kitchen. Then I have a fuzzy duster pad for quick and easy pick up, works great with cat fur! I just throw them in the wash with a load of rags or towels and then they are ready to use the next time!
If you still like the idea of the disposable pads Bona does offer this option as well.
I personally have the plain Bona kit. And use the spray bottles I need and spray directly onto the floor. However, there is an option to get a Bona kit that has the sprayer attached to it, if you would prefer that.
It’s really helped simplify my cleaning and storage! Plus it works great and its pet safe!
