Does anyone out there in the world still mop floors on their hands and knees???
I will when I can't get under tight areas with a mop.
I used to mop on my hands and knees on vinyl floors. I'd have to stop every couple of minutes due to my knees hurting on the hard floor.
I soon realized, either I stop mopping on my hands and knees and accept some dirty areas on the floor or I needed to find a way to do it in comfort.
Now that I have a harder tile floor, I needed a healthier way to mop on hands and knees.
Wa-la! I went out and bought a pair of Volleyball knee pads.
I slide these on and I'll tell you. Talk about comfort while kneeling on the hard floors! It's like I'm wearing a soft bed mattress on each knee. :)
No more discomfort. When I clean the tight areas, I've noticed that using a 3M non-scratch plastic pad works great. (I use the green ones. But the blue ones would work also.) I've saved all my old non-scratch pads (you know the holey ones), placed them together and fold them in half. Works great compared to bulky floor brushes that are too big and too tall.
I have used a old tooth brush also for really close-up cleaning by wood cabinet crevices.
I hope this can give you some ideas.
Nothing wrong with being comfortable and healthy while cleaning. ;)
