The other day we had an icky mishap, Hubby-jr (4) accidentally knocked over a potty! Ack! And the little pee that was still in it spilled onto the floor! Ick! Thankfully though our floor’s not carpetted but tiled. Phew!
Still, there was this small puddle of… eww pee staring at me. How was I going to clean it up without having contact with it too much?? (Ugh, just the thought even now grosses me out! Yes it’s been awhile since such a “mayhem” has happened.) I know, I know I’ve been a stay at home mommy for over four years now but hey, cleaning pee and poo never gets any less icky with experience… ever!
Anyway after a minute of bewilderment I saw a piece of diaper lying nearby. The disposable kind (earth, please forgive me). In a flash I grabbed it, opened it face down and wiped the pee mess with it. The diaper absorbed the “puddle” quickly and entirely AND most importantly without my hands having to touch any of “it”. Phee eew! Yeah after that I wiped the floor again with a mop and that was it. Job done. I felt so relieved and pleased with myself!
That’s my tip for this week. Cleaning pee mess on the floor with a disposable diaper. Yes this tip is not for the environmentalist. I know it was kind of a waste of a good diaper too. But it worked for me.
Go over to Rocks In My Dryer to see what else worked for other moms.
