Thank you for your suggestions and experiences mommies. I found some interesting things regarding how to mop the floor. Check it out here


Is Floor cleaner good for you and for baby?

Floor cleaner does kill bacteria from the floor. But it also has chemical ingredients that are not safe for your baby's skin.

Most of the disinfectant cleaners to certain extent gives discomfort to the baby's skin(harshness, rashes, allegery, skin irritation) and even adults too feel it because of its artifical ingredients in the liquid.

Usually many of us do clean the floor with water and few drops of some disinfectant liquids and wipe the floor with that bucket water. To some percent it destroys the bacteria.

Anything that lathers is bad?

Yes. Any liquid, detergent, soap, lotion that lathers has a chemical called SLS(Try googling sodium lauryl sulphate) which is harmful.

What can we do?

1. Clean your floor with few drops of disinfectant and again wipe it with plain water.

2. Go for SLS free cleaners as an alternative.

3. Clean your floor using plain water with some natural ingredients like (Rock Salt, Neem, lime with some food grade ingredients like vinegar and baking soda)

4. Mopping with salt water gives positive energy

5. Opt for natural disinfectant cleaners

Neem as a Disinfectant

Put some neem leaves into warm water and allow it to boil. Let the essence of neem leaves set in the water. Then mix this with a bucket of water. And clean your floorings.

Mop life?

It is essential to change the mop atleast once in 3 months. After using, we need to clean the mop well with plain/hot water(hot water is most preferable) . Completely sun drain it before using it next time.
