My "Thieveffer" Mop

Every night after dinner the 2 oldest children clean the floors in the Kitchen and the Breakfast Nook where we eat. For years now that has consisted of Swiffer wet pads being used every night, at least 3 but sometimes more. When I started on my Young Living Journey one of my first Essential Reward purchases was the Thieves Household Cleaner. I used it for general cleaning around the house and when we traveled, I can mop my whole house with one capful. One night it finally dawned on me how much money we were wasting on Swiffer's when one capful of Thieves cleaned the whole house.

But I was not ready for my kids to be getting out the big mop and bucket every night to clean just 2 rooms just yet. I saved a container that the Swiffer wet refills come in and I added 1/2 a capful of Thieves Household Cleaner to half of the container filled with water. After mixing it around I grabbed all the rags around the house that were 10x10 or bigger and added them to the container.

After a month of the switch I can honestly say I'm glad I made the switch. The floor gets just as clean as it did with the 3 Swiffer wet sheets we use to use every night, thieves smells like gingerbread so my house smells yummy and we are not throwing money in the trash can every night. I would purchase the Swiffer pads at our Wholesale store at a cost of $15.47 for 60, so .26 cents for each sheet. My kids used 3 sheets every night for the 2 rooms, so one night was costing us .78 cents and when  we were done those went in the trashcan to go clog up our landfill. Thieves Household Cleaner cost me $22.00 Wholesale, so approx .64 cents a capful, its concentrated so a little goes along way. I only use 1/2 a capful so lets say .32 cents for one of my swiffer containers filled halfway with water, I usually add 12 rags to the container, sometimes more. So 12 rags of my cleaner ( 3 rags used each night for 4 nights )  cost me .32 cents, the floors get cleaned and nothing gets thrown in the trash ( I put them in our normal wash ) compared to $3.12 for the 4 nights of Swiffer wet pads that get thrown in the trash when we are done.

Think about it this way, old way cost us $23.40 a month and the new way cost us $2.40 a month. I think I'll stick with the Thieves Household Cleaner.
