Ok, it's no secret at all, infact, I broadcast my disability hoping for an increase in awareness. I have been looking for ways to manage household chores, and one of the biggest obstacles is mopping the floor.

A bit ago, I opened the fridge and a can of pop fell out on me and exploded all over the floor. It was diet-- and my first in WEEKS {I'm so proud of myself}, so I knew it wouldn't be sticky but it had to be mopped.

So I had an idea. I took the liner thing out of the kitchen sink and filled it with water and some Clorox Natural Floor Solution. I used the sink as a mop bucket and it didn't involve half the agony it usually does.

When I was done, I put bleach in the sink and it's still soaking.

Is this idea totally gross, or does it seem like a viable option to help me deal with the things I can't do??

I do it. I don't have a mop bucket so I use the sink when I mop. I don't see why it'd be gross

M'eh I've done worse haha. I've used the dish cloth to spot clean a splash of whatever on the floor.. haha. Ew I know.

If your bleaching it after wards I don't see why that would be a big deal.

Not at all, Michelle. Do what works best for you, I don't think its gross at all. Maybe just make up a spray bottle with diluted bleach to spray the sink when you're done?

I think that is a great idea! That is usually how my mom mops.. Either fills the kitchen sink or bathroom sink with water and cleaner! I use a swiffer wetjet and it just sprays the cleaner and I love it!!!

We mop using the sink too, and DH is VERY big on germs and disinfecting, etc. He just cleans the sink with bleach afterwards.

I think it's brilliant! My floor is quite disgusting because I don't mop--actually I don't even own a mop...

the swifer would be good, except high traffic area's, it doesnt get into the nity grity like I wanted it to, I still found better results washing by hand with a sponge and paper towels! And yes, I use the sink as a mop bucket too!

Not gross at all, especially since you soaked the sink in bleach afterwards. Far more gross things end up in my sink on a regular basis, lol.
