I am not a fan of cleaning. Organization is not my strong point. I have spent the better part of the last decade Googling ‘How can I make my cleaning products eco-friendly?’ and the struggle has been ongoing. Our house is always in transition from old to new, and when I heard about Bona’s eco-friendly everyday cleaning essentials, I was ready to dive in. The bundle that best fit our family’s need was Multi-Surface Floor Care Kit, PowerPlus® Hardwood Floor Cleaner, Microfiber Pad Pack and it contained everything I needed to get started. I was thrilled to see the Greenguard stamp on the packaging certifying that the products are at the gold standard for chemical emissions. We have been done with chemicals in this household for a while. Lawsuits are being won across the nation every day in favor of consumers who have been harmed by companies who do not consider Greenguard certification. Bona offers solutions that are environmentally friendly, safe, and, formulated for hardwood, stone, tile, and laminate.

This summer has been one for the books for rain, mud, and slop. This year is the wettest summer we have had in years, and we are so thankful that our natural waterways have replenished, full, and even overflowing during a Texas summer! The foot traffic can really take a toll on the farmhouse floors. We have been hosting more get-togethers out here this summer, which has drastically increased foot traffic. Since Anni has started to crawl, floor cleanliness has been at the top of my priority list daily. I love how easy my Bona microfiber mop is to pull out and use quickly when we are preparing for company or sanitizing for floor playtime. The Bona bundle, with its earth-friendly solutions, perfectly fits our family’s minimal and sustainable lifestyle. The washable microfiber cleaning pads attach to the mop head with one-touch which makes getting the system ready to use quickly. The only other step is grabbing the spray bottle of ready to use Bona floor solution (provided in the customized kit), and let the cleaning commence!

I don’t have to be concerned about my children or guests being exposed to any chemical solutions or residues and that helps me to sleep better at night, if that’s even possible! Cleaning has always been a mundane chore but with my Multi-Surface Floor Care Kit, PowerPlus® Hardwood Floor Cleaner, Microfiber Pad Pack it makes cleaning a fun activity.
