When we first moved to uruguay I had to have a “regular” mop.  It didn’t take long for me to realize the Uruguayan way of mopping was more efficient.  I didn’t even think to buy a “regular” mop when we moved in this house.  I just wish we could buy the same floor clothes here. 

If you have back, neck, or Chiari issues mopping, vacuuming, and sweeping will likely bring on more pain.  Thankfully, I have a sweet son who wanted to help today.  I can definitely say that running a dust mop most of the time and then the rag & squegee method is much less strenuos for me.  Especially when the one running them is not me. 🙂

  1. Debbie – I’m really enjoying reading your blog! Wish we could visit in person.

    As for mops and floor cloths, you might try Don Aslett’s site They have microfiber cloths that might work really well for what you want. We have one of the microfiber mops and all you do is squirt the floor with a spray bottle mixture of water and their floor solution, then run the microfiber mop over it. If you let it sit a minute, it never requires scrubbing very hard. Might be a good, low impact option for you.
