I’t probably not every day you hear someone say they are thankful for dirt, but today I’m saying it outloud and encouraging you to do the same. This post is sponsored by Bona and we are both really excited to hear all your dirt. So often when you hear the dirt on someone it’s in a negative light or gossip, but today let’s chat about the dirt we are thankful for! You might just look at cleaning in a whole new way. PLUS – there is a chance for you to win a COOL prize, so read ’till the end!
Sometimes I think a new frame of mind is all we need when tackling a task we don’t exactly love. I came across this thought years ago when I heard some wise women talk about how they handle laundry in their home. They pray for each person as they fluff and fold and I’ve never looked at laundry the same again. This mind shift took a mundane task and upped it to a sweet opportunity to serve and love on my favorite people.
Well, I took this idea and applied it to mopping because if there’s one household chore I don’t love, it’s mopping. I can’t exactly say why, it’s always been a chore I dreaded. But two things changed that. The first is my Bona mop. I told you guys about it a while back when I got it (and shared a cute storage idea). I made a super easy place to store it, where it was handy at all times for quick clean ups. To say I enjoy mopping now seems like an exaggeration and gives a lot of credit to a mop, but it is 100% the truth. My Bona mop is soooo easy to use and leaves the floors squeaky clean. The specially formulated Tile & Laminate cleaner is water based, safe to use, dries fast and doesn’t leave a residue or film on my tile. I feel super accomplished in a matter of minutes. 🙌🙌🙌
Here is a quick pic of the correct way to use your Bona mop. Make sure the easy to attach squirt bottle of goodness is pointing forward and spraying the way for the large mop head to do the dirty work!
The second thing that changed was my attitude. Seeing muddy paw prints at my back door and walking through crunchy, sticky kitchen floors used to irk me. Then I decided to be thankful for the dirt. I ‘m so grateful for the three children that mess up our home daily. 👱♀️👱👦 The days are quickly dwindling until the house falls silent of teenage angst and Cinnamon Toast Crunch crumbs. What will I do when there is no mess to clean? Recognizing the alternative makes me happy to clean spilled chocolate milk and smeared grape jelly off the floors. The dirt is easily fixed and the cause of it has my heart.
Even the furry little whirlwinds that seem to go in and out our back door two million times a day make me happy. Without them I wouldn’t have a warm snuggle buddy when I’m sad and want to be alone.🐕 I wouldn’t have a furry work friend to lounge out on my desk and make me laugh at his laziness. 😻 Who else would entertain us with his constant jumping and fetching if there were not dusty paw tracks meandering through the house? 🐶
