My really well rung out sponge mop still left little pools. I mopped with the grain. [[shrug]] Not a big deal to me to just do smaller sections & towel it off after, but I'm weird. My mom offered to buy me some Swiffer pads (we have the mop part) to make it easier on move-out day so I might just do that. I AM going to mop the kitchen floor with vinegar though. I want to make sure I cut any grease with the vinegar & that it doesn't get sticky from cleaning spray.
I'm avoiding pinterest because some of the things I read, like using veggie oil to improve shine, can be really damaging for your floors. Veggie oil will go rancid and screw things up! The floors really need a new coat of poly, so there isn't much "shine" for me to observe and I can't see that they are any cleaner. They look fine swept, I just want to be a good tenant and clean up after myself .
The shower liners were something like $2.39 at Target . I probably won't bother with a decorative curtain.
