We put a lot of attention on our feet and footwear when we try to avoid foot odor. Clean socks, fresh shoes, and dry, well-cared-for feet are all on the to-do list, but guess what? Our floors have a pretty big say in the health of our feet too. Learn about the ways we can care for our feet by caring for our floors.
If you are the average person, mopping and sweeping are things you put off. Vacuuming is probably not on your to-do list every day either. Let this article be a reminder that getting serious about scrubbing the floor until you could eat off of it is just as important as scrubbing your feet each day. It should be a household cleaning ritual. While it’s okay to skip once in a while, regular cleaning will eliminate the build of bacteria, dirt, and grime that can catch on our feet and create problems. Here’s a breakdown of floor cleaning advice to get you started.
Finally, remember to choose cleaners that are safe for pets and green, meaning they are natural and won’t be harmful to you and your family if inhaled, walked or crawled on. You can always keep a stash of the harsh cleaners nearby for the really dirty jobs and hard-to-clean stains. But if you are regularly cleaning those floors, the green cleaners will be the most useful for you.
Last tip: everyone has that one weird friend who loves to clean and organize. Seek them out. Offer them a six-pack or pizza and some quality time. Call on them to help you if the job is big and you hate cleaning. Work like this is always better with a friend, a great playlist, and a few laughs.
