While the lazy days of summer are certainly a time to relax more and turn up the fun, unfortunately many household tasks don’t end. In fact, with three kids and a dog home with me all day the messes seem to accumulate more than they do during the school year. Grass, dirt (my 6-year-old has decided to collect rocks and whatever she trails in with them), wet feet debris, sunscreen prints (how? It’s on their arms and legs, not feet?!), and more all seem to accumulate on my floors.
New to Canada, Libman mops, buckets, brooms, sweepers and accessories are available at Canadian Tire and Home Depot stores nationwide. Look for these products on shelves now:
I was able to check out a couple new products and added them to my summer cleaning “attack”!
The Libman Precision Angle Broom With Dustpan ($13.99 at Canadian Tire) is perfect for taking care of all the grass (SO. MUCH. GRASS.) that trails into my house on the feet of my children and their friends. It easily cleans up that, along with food (all those cookie and cracker crumbs!) and anything else the kids carelessly toss onto the floor without a second thought. The dustpan snaps into place ensuring you always have it within reach for quick clean-ups. It also does a great job sweeping off the deck since it’s made for both indoor and outdoor use.
For all those sticky, dried up and “what IS this?” messes, the Libman Nitty Gritty Roller Mop ($22.99 at Canadian Tire) is awesome. I love the built-in scrub brush for those times when you need a little extra elbow-grease (funny story: the first time I heard that term at one of my high-school part time jobs, I had no idea what it meant and asked where I would find this ‘elbow grease’ cleaner…yup.)
