How to cut your cleaning time in half

This post is sponsored by Bona but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Let’s be honest …

As mothers we take on the majority, if not all of the housework. So, why not cut our cleaning time in half by investing in something that will really shorten that time? To be honest the floors in my home often get neglected. When it comes to cleaning, floors are never the priority, and they often go without cleaning for weeks. On top of the piling dishes, the loads of laundry, or the endless diaper changes and meals we prepare, it just doesn’t often make the list of chores.

It’s time to make our floors a priority again, and cut our cleaning time in half, so we can get back to doing, well, everything else. Including playing with our children and having more fun!

That’s why I’ve chosen to partner with Bona, and test their quick clean system. After trying it in my home for a few weeks, I can say it really does just that. With the help of a couple of different products they have available on their website.

Bona’s Quick Clean System

First of all, the Bona Mop is very durable and comes with an extra large mop head to cover more floor space in one sweep. The mop head is 16.5 inches in length, and can be changed from dry dusting, to wet mopping in seconds. It has rubber corners that prevent you from damaging your furniture, and is very flexible to where it will still pick up dirt and grime in small hard to reach corners. I also love that there are certain pads that you can throw in your washer and re-use, making it eco-friendly and cost efficient as well.

The Bona Quick Clean System comes with the premium re-usable microfiber dusting pad and the re-usable microfiber cleaning pad. You also have the option of disposable wet cleaning pads, and disposable dry dusting pads.

The Re-usable Cleaning Pads

I love having re-usable cleaning pads that I can use over and over again, and still get the same results from. The plus side to using these pads is they are eco-friendly and can be washed up to 300 times. You can put as much or as little product as you’d like when cleaning your floors. For example, while using the re-usable cleaning pad, you can spray more cleaning solution depending on the size of your floor. This makes it to where, you never have to change the pad while covering a larger surface area. I find these work great for my living room or large entryway.

The Cleaning Solution

The Cleaning solution is fantastic, I love how it is streak-free and residue free. It really helps cut my floor cleaning time in half, since I don’t have to go over the same area multiple times in a row. This solution works great on tile, laminate, luxury laminate and stone. No matter what your floor needs may be, they have the cleaning solution that best fits your floors.

The Disposable Cleaning Pads

The Disposable pads are also a game changer. I find the wet cleaning pads to be amazing for smaller floors like my kitchen or bathroom area. The wet pads are multilayered, with locking strips to keep the pad secure and in place. The pads are also safe for your family, pets and our planet, backed by Greenguard Gold, as a product certified for low chemical emissions. These are great for a quick and easy clean.

The disposable dry dusting pads pick up just the same amount of dust as the re-usable one. I feel they are pretty equal in cleaning power, and are great if you don’t have time to wash the pad in between cleaning sessions from room to room. The dusting pad also features locking strips and 3D fibers to lock away dust, dirt, and even pet hair.

The Bona Floor Mop is for everyone!

So wether, a pressed for time college student in a one bedroom, a bachelorette in a studio, or a busy mom like me who lives in a 4 bedroom home, Bona has just the solution for you. It’s time to cut our cleaning time in half, and make more play time.
