Even though I’ve been in spring cleaning tips mode, I’ve been worried about taking care of our beloved living room laminate that Superman so meticulously installed right by himself.  Then there’s the luxury vinyl in the kitchen has been looking old and dull for a while now.

No more, my friend!

My kitchen floors look so shiny and the newer living room laminate is beautiful because…..  my premium spray mop & cleaner is specially designed to remove dust, dirt, and grime – but without residue or slickness. It also carries the  GREENGUARD GOLD certification so I can feel safe using it around the family and pets.  I’ve been dying to tell you all about it because  I’m definitely in love!  WooHoo!

Here are my favorite attributes of my new b.f.f. mop.  Is it strange that I’m thinking of giving him a name?!

• A quick solution with no residue (this is my FAVORITE benefit!)

• It’s so easy to assemble & store (no brainer for me!)

• There is no mixing (it’s ready to go!)

• Designed specifically to be safe for use on hard surfaces (my peace of mind!)

• Effectively cleans dirt buildup on floors (mine needed this!)

• Safe for my loved ones in the house (GREENGUARD GOLD certification)

• 100 years of professional heritage (peace of mind!)

• I’m not wasting money because I reuse the cleaning pad

I know I could stand to give my hard surface floors more love on a weekly basis and now I don’t mind at all.  I’m just glad that I finally know how to do that quickly and easily, and caring for our floors with Bona shows how much we love them!


Naturally many people have questions when it comes to cleaning their laminate floors or other hard surfaces. These are the most frequent questions and my opinion in answer form:

  • What is the best way to clean laminate flooring?

We all know that an excess of water and liquids are not good for laminate or any other wood flooring. Making sure that laminate floors are cleaned with the right amount of water is crucial. Again, Bona to the rescue. The mop sprays out the smallest amount at a time to leave a streak-free clean floor without damage.

  • How do you clean laminate floors without damaging them?

As mentioned in the last answer, the worst thing you can do to clean a laminate floor is to use a wet mop or hot steam mop. Carefully using the bona mop will help you gage the liquid added to the floor and quickly remove it so that no damage occurs.

    This is great advice . We have carpet in our house that needs to be changed out badly. We are considering laminate floors as an alternative so this will be very helpful once we make the change!

    • Shan

      That’s exciting, Sandy! Congrats on the new floors soon. We have three rooms to do the same and I can’t wait!

    Seems like a great solution for my floors. I use a similar mop from Target but the squirter is always sticking. Might be time for an upgrade!

    This looks like a great product especially for wood floors. I’ll have to try it.

      Yay, Jalisa! After having company for dinner tonight, I wanted to clean our living room floors. It’s a big room but instead of taking me at least 20 minutes like normal, it took 5. #inlove

    I’ll be looking into this! I had a steam mop (which I loved), but it went kaput. I’m in the market for another tool!

    • Shan
      April 13, 2018 / 11:04 pm

      I used mine again after having company over. It took only 5 minutes and there’s no rinsing or residue, and it dries quicker than you can count to 10. 🙂

      If my lighting were a little better (it’s 11 pm), I’d take a picture of my beautiful laminate floors that I just cleaned with my Bona mop. I am WAY too excited about this thing! My floors are gorgeous!
