Prepping for the Holidays with Little Hands

As the oldest daughter and the only daughter in law, I have taken it upon myself to host holidays. I actually love throwing parties--preparing my house is one of the biggest steps in the party process. I'm here to share you how my little man and I prep for the holidays.

My floors receive a lot of traffic--from dirty shoes to sticky crawling fingers these floors see it all. Because of this they often need a good clean wipe daily, but when company comes I have to break out the big guns and power clean them. I was lucky to find Bona PowerPlus, and I'm loving the way it's making my wood floors look. 

The Bona PowerPlus has an oxygenated formula that removes heavy build up and deep cleans without all the extra scrubbing. I love that the solution comes in a simple spray bottle that you spray directly onto the floors, and then use the Microfiber Deep Clean Pad to wipe it all up.

My little man loves getting involved in household chores and who am I to stop him?! It's great to start them at a young age so when they are older they know what is expected and can hopefully conquer those tasks on their own.

Bona's PowerPlus simple spray bottle allows Bennett to work with me, while I am scrubbing he can spray. It's a simple task but he loves it and almost thinks of it as a game. Below are other tasks that I have him work on while I am working on cleaning stuff that he isn't able to do just yet. 
  • Make beds 
  • Put dirty clothes in hamper
  • Put clothes away
  • Pick up toys and books
  • Unload Dishwasher

You might say your little one doesn't like cleaning, give it time they will love it. Make it a game-- set a timer and see how fast they can pick up their stuffed animals. You can also have them find all the spots on the floor and spray them. My little loves to unload the dishwasher, because when he finishes he gets to wash the dishes (which essentially is play in the sink). 

This year get your little involved in cleaning, and use Bona PowerPlus to make scrubbing your floors a breeze.
