6 Things That’ll Make Cleaning Your Floors a Million Times Easier
The last thing anyone wants to do after a long day is clean their kitchen floors. (We’re totally with you on that one.) Unfortunately, it really is the last thing you should do in there. That’s why we’re here with six Amazon finds that can make the job a little — no, a lot — easier. The best part? They’ll still take two days to arrive, so use that time as a free pass to neglect those floors tonight and tomorrow night. (Oh, hello, Big Little Lies!)
For some reason, most of us think of Swiffers as the best mop situation, but so many people we’ve talked to say this O-Cedar kit is way better. For starters, the heavy-duty microfiber pad is reusable, which is better for the environment and for your wallet. It’s incredibly easy to maneuver around, and it uses a refillable bottle that can be nearly all (free-ish) water if you use a concentrate cleaner.

Save that elbow grease for other tough jobs! Just bust out your power drill and pair it one of these scrubbing brushes. Pull the trigger and the bristles will give your floors that deep clean that you so badly want but can’t bring yourself to work for.
Don’t feel like dragging out your upright vacuum? It’s nice to have a little cordless guy that you can pull out each night to pick up any crumbs or debris that may have gathered. It’s hard to beat the Dyson name and this model, while still not cheap, is $120 cheaper than next step up.
A broom is a broom is a broom, right? Nope! O-Cedar comes in again for the win here with a broom that’s angled to make the process more comfortable for you. It’s also got “double bristle technology” with soft bristles to collect fine dust and hair, plus firm bristles to collect larger dirt particles. And the dust pan has a rubber lip to guide dirt into the pan, not under.
5. Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner, $11 for 32-ounces

6. Washable Mop Slippers, $12
