About a month ago I purchased a Rubbermaid grout scrubber. It’s called “Rubber maid Reveal Power Scrubber” and I’ve become a bit obsessed.
Here is a video of me opening the box and trying it out for the first time.
I use this for everything. Cleaning my shower grout was just the beginning. My husband laughs at me and calls it my toothbrush.
I even have been using it to clean my floor. Yes, you read that right. My FLOOR! I have officially crossed the line into cleaning obsession. But let me explain why…
My dear sweet husband used to clean the floors when he worked from home. He found a product that makes your floor shiny, kind of like OrangeGlo. But it isn’t OrangeGlo. He can’t remember the name. Anyways… this STUFF was nice at first, but dear hubby didn’t thoroughly clean the floors before applying it. We had a dog and two cats at the time. I now have trapped pet hair in the corners of my floors and along the baseboard. It drives me crazy!!!!!!!! I’ve done a ton of research trying to figure out how to remove it, and since I don’t know what the product IS, I can’t look up how to remove it. So…. I found several posts about removing OrangeGlo and finally settled on using ammonia and water.
I combine about 1/2 to 2/3 ammonia with water in a spray bottle and spray the floor. I started on our ceramic tile, and it took me about 5 minutes per 12×12 tile. Then I tested a small part of our hardwood floors and they seemed to fare ok. I don’t recommend using this on your hardwoods because I think I’ve been lucky. You may not be so lucky and I don’t want to be the one who suggested that you do it too. Back to the floor scrubbing… I spray the ammonia solution on the floor in a small area, wait a minute or two, then start scrubbing away with my “toothbrush” aka Rubbermaid grout scrubber. You’d be amazed at the gunk that comes up. It takes a few applications and scrubbing rounds. Anywhere from 3 to 6+ depending on how much traffic goes on the floor. The highly trafficked areas come up much easier. Probably because the finish has been worn thinner.
So yes, I use it to clean my floors. I am a bit obsessed. But I will finally be rid of the disgusting pet hairs and be able to feel like my floors are actually clean. It’s been a several week process because I only get maybe 15 minutes to do it at a time, but I am seeing progress. I’ll have to post a picture of the process soon.
