In our household, the holiday rush begins the day after Thanksgiving. I start putting up Christmas decorations — beginning with 30 wreaths, and I host a small dinner party in my dining room (shown above). Then it’s pretty much non-stop until New Year’s Day.
This time of year, I’m always running short on time when it comes to cleaning up around the house. And the joy of having teenage boys! They come in from outside and leave behind a trail of dirt. Needless to say, it can be quite a challenge keeping the floors clean.
So, imagine my excitement when iRobot offered to send me a Braava Floor Mopping Robot to try out! Have you heard of it? It’s like something right out of The Jetsons.
When my Braava came, I couldn’t open the box fast enough. I immediately loved it’s sleek design, and it was super easy to set up. I was also thrilled to discover it cleans as a dry and wet mop. I quickly put it work and I’ve already saved a bunch of time!
While I decorated the dining room for my dinner party, my new little friend was busy keeping the floors clean — and it didn’t complain once. Try getting your kids to do that! In fact, the Braava is so quiet, I almost forgot it was on. It even stayed on the job while I took a walk around the neighborhood to gather pinecones and branches to use in my decor:
Thanks to the Braava, I got my dining room ready for guests in record time! Now I can move on to other tasks without worrying about the floors.
In my next post, I’ll show you some of the easy and inexpensive things I did to create my ‘natural and green’ holiday decor. In the meantime, if you want to know more about how the Braava works, you gotta check out the iRobot website!
This robot cleans extremely well and it’s very easy to use. I’ve got a new bestie!
