Every once in a while, when the floor gets extra dirty, I let the boys give it their special treatment. I fill a bucket with soapy water, give them some rags, and let them go at it. The floor ends up completely soaked, but at least it gets clean(er).
They always end up taking off their clothes as soon as they get wet (so, basically as soon as they get started). This last time, I was in the laundry room when I heard the gleeful sounds of brothers going nuts. I thought I'd find my living room had turned into a lake. What I didn't expect was to find it had been turned into an ice skating rink, with the boys sliding around it on their bare bottoms. I guess you could say they were buffing it in the buff. Works for me!
So if my floor seems to have a certain unusual shine to it, now you know why.
