I think it is no secret to anyone here that I like to clean.
In fact, it would be a form of stress relief for me.
And that would be a big old nope.
Older children are messier than little children and this is why: older children don’t take four hour naps.
This summer also brought us the arrival of our loyal friend, Buddy.
And he does a mean Gladys Kravitz imitation.
Probably more than I have my children, sadly.
Because they are not the bane of my existence….when they are….
No, it is my floors.
Five blog posts in fact are centered around my floors.My floors are constantly dirty and I am not a dirty person.
I don’t honestly know, on most days, how to keep up with them.
So I just shrug my shoulders and say, “oh well, my kids won’t care what the floors looked like when they grow up” and head back to 90210.
Damn you, Dylan and Brenda.
I had all but given up cleaning my floors when I got an email from the people over at O Cedar.
*”Do you want a mop that is life changing?”
“Can it clean the floor while I watch Kelly screw her best friend over?”
“Umm no. And who is Kelly?”
“Okay, send it over any way. Gotta run. Cindy is making a french casserole!”
* or it was a conversation in my head
But the fine people working for O Cedar, after me telling them how I do product review posts (unprofessional and with 90210 quotes thrown in), STILL wanted to send me a mop.
Ohhhkay but I warned you.
It was three days after we adopted our puppy, that the mop was on our doorstep.
At first, I thought it looked way too confusing for me to figure out.
Especially with two children making messes, a new puppy and 90210 on the DVR just taunting me.
Then I looked down at my filthy floors and thought, it has to be better than the time when Brenda had to work for the lady who was stealing her commission.
We got it, Brenda.
Yes that is a watermelon on my table.
I don’t have professional picture stagers.
It took me literally two minutes to put the mop together.
So that means more time to mop…..yay?
I mean YAY!
Fill the water and your cleaning solution of choice into the bucket using the fill line guide.
Easy enough for Brenda to do when the maid has strep.
Working on teaching him how to mop in addition to sitting and staying.
So the reason this mop is “easy wring” is because there is a pedal on the bucket that wrings out your mop as you pedal!
Yes, Jim and Cindy!
Think of it as the world’s grossest salad spinner.
You would not believe how much water you aren’t getting out of your usual mop when you do it the old fashioned way.
Buddy is totally fascinated with the salad mop spinner.
And when I throw out my water, it is dirty.
I mean DIRTY.
Which means it is really picking up all the crap on my floors.
That or it’s been a hella long time since I did the floors.
Now is the part of the show when I tell you that O Cedar is pulling an Andrea Zuckerman and giving you a mop of your own!!
Congratulations to the winner, Teri Biebel!!
I know you want to mop, Brenda.
Give it a try.
Such a whiner.
Thank you to O Cedar for sending me a mop to try out and pimp on my blog.
Thank you also to the cast of Beverly Hills 90210 for being there for me when I am slacking on my household duties.
