Mop & Glo...No no no!
My floors always look dull to me (they are linoleum and oh so plain and boring!). So I decided, to heck with it. I am going to wax them. The only floor wax I found on the shelf at my Wal-Mart was Mop & Glo. I grabbed it and went on my merry way.
I washed my floors as soon as I got home, scrubbed them really good (on my hands and knees y'all-it took forever!) to make sure they were clean. And I did it. I poured the wax on the floors and again on my hands and knees and spread it evenly section by section (again y'all on my hands and knees, it took a while!). I did all the uncarpeted floors in my home. This means 3 bathrooms, my fair sized kitchen and eating area. My front entry and laundry room.
And oh it looked so nice! I actually liked the look of my floors, so shiny, so pretty!
Fast forward 2 weeks and after a few times of washing my nice shiny floors with a mop and my regular cleaner I am noticing it feels sticky even though I know they are totally clean. And the shine is gone, which I expected that it would fade of course! I wash them with a few different cleaners and they are still sticky. And they are getting dirtier quicker, the dirt is getting caught in the sticky residue. It's a nightmare. Really, it's awful. I just finished googling how to get this residue off my floor and guess what? I find pages of reviews and warnings about Mop & Glo and this exact issue!
Tonight, I am heading back to Wal-Mart to get litres of Windex as I have read mixed with water it will finally be the product to take this disgusting Mop & Glo residue off my floors.
And again it's the same old story...I should have listened to my Mom!
Stay away from Mop & Glo...google it...listen to me...listen to my Mom...it's not worth the trouble!
Have you used Mop & Glo and had the same experience? Have you used it and had a good experience? Any tips on another way to get my lino floors looking better without Mop & Glo or replacing them?
