You may remember that a couple of weeks back I shared this picture of our kitchen floor with you.

Kitchen FloorYep, it’s a lovely white tile and it’s pretty dirty in this picture. With a 5- and 6-year-old it’s tough to keep this floor clean. Not only that, the kitchen is in a high traffic area because we always enter through our back door. Having no mud room means I’m constantly cleaning my kitchen floor.

The white tile wasn’t our choice. It was here when we moved in and for nearly 10 years we’ve said we were one day going to put in a new floor. We haven’t done it yet and until we do, I’ll be cleaning it a couple of times a week.

In that previous post, I mentioned that I was using regular store bought floor cleaners to keep the floor as clean as I could. Having to use these floor cleaners a couple of times a week always weighed on me. It wasn’t something I was completely comfortable with for the kids and that’s why I’m excited to work with BlogFrog and Arm & Hammer on this sponsored post and to share my honest opinions about the Arm & Hammer Switch and Save Challenge.

For the last couple of weeks, I’ve switched out my typical floor cleaners for Arm & Hammer Baking Soda.

Baking SodaI’ve been using this tip from the Arm & Hammer Pure Baking Soda Over 100 Helpful Hints Book:

  • Clean tile floors with 1/2 cup baking soda in a bucket of warm water. Mop and rinse clean.

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda BookI have to say I’ve been very pleased with the results.

Baking Soda Kitchen FloorMy floors are just as clean, if not even more so, since switching to the baking soda solution. I like that it is a more natural product, works well, and it’s much cheaper then the floor cleaners I was buying.

I recommend giving the Arm & Hammer Baking Soda solution a try on your floors and hopefully you’ll have similar results. I know I’ll be using it from now on and I can’t wait to start trying some of the other tips in the book as well!
