As much as I wish it wasn't the truth, it seems that the best way to clean a floor is on one's hands and knees, with a bucket and a rag. I did this today in both our kitchen and our bathroom. The kitchen was particularly in need of attention, since we have a white tile floor and a black, busily shedding dog. We also upgraded our kitchen and bathroom trash cans to stainless steel jobbies.
Excitement abounds around these parts!
