Using Laundry Detergent to Mop

Last year, my OCD Best Friend, discovered Go Clean Co on Instagram. I have never seen her so excited!

I have to admit it has been entertaining to watch others clean. With her raving about her floors and baseboards being so clean, I decided it was time to try some of their methods in my own house, specifically on my floors & baseboards.

It involved a new mop and powdered laundry detergent, I used BIZ because that is the only powder detergent I have.

Let’s back up a bit in case some of you haven’t heard yet of Go Clean Co. They are a Canadian cleaning company from Alberta, Canada that went viral during the pandemic. Seriously they blew up in popularity. Partly because people were bored and looking to clean their homes and partly because Go Clean Co uses methods that many of us haven’t heard of before. Well at least my OCD Best Friend and I hadn’t. Since my floors were due for a clean, I decided to do an experiment, and try it. It was just the motivation I needed to get one of my least favorite jobs done.

Go Clean Co recommends using the O-Cedar Spin Mop for floor cleaning. I purchased mine on Amazon and had it shipped to the house.

You fill up the bucket with hot hot tap water to the max line and then add 1 teaspoon of powdered laundry detergent. Yep laundry detergent.

They use this to clean everything! Let me tell you the floors and baseboards have NEVER felt and looked so clean! And you didn’t even have to put a lot of muscle into it… literally just wipe it down. My LIFE IS CHANGED!

Have you all tried the Go Clean Co method of cleaning at your house? What did you think?
