If you love it so much why don't you marry it?

Remember that taunt from grade school?

Well, I'm gonna marry my Swiffer Wet Jet. I am seriously in love with this thing! I had one a while ago and brought it with me when we moved, but alas... it was broken. So I have been using the old fashioned mop and bucket method.

And it was fine, for what it was. But it really didn't seem to get the floors very clean, no matter how often I changed out the water. I even tried hands-and-knees cleaning once (we have NO carpets - ONCE was enough!!) and that didn't seem to work very well either.

But ah, the Wet Jet. I wish I'd bought you sooner. It's so much faster, much less work without having to fill and empty a bucket over and over. Also, I know that my floors were filthy because I used 2 pads per room, and used the entire (small sized!) bottle of cleaner that came with it. I will have to buy more - 2 more because I will probably be obsessed for a while(!) and my beautiful floors will be spotless! Oh and it smells so good. Nothing better than a clean smelling house.

Now I am just waiting for my beige slipcover to come out of the dryer (who's idea was THAT color anyway??) and then I should be done for the day. It's amazing how much eaiser it was without the mop.

Oh, how I love my Wet Jet!

See, I have one, but mine seems to shoot way too far out and gets the cabinets wet and everything. I used to use it at my old house with big wooden and tile floors, but here I just wipe the obvious dirt and call my floor "dark beige" instead.

LOL… now there’s an idea!! I think I might steal that thought if it weren’t for how many wood floors we have. Like, the whole house. I really need to think about some area rugs. Oh, but then I’d have to buy a new vacuum.
