The Benefits Of Tossing A Few Cinnamon Sticks Into Your Mop Water
Mopping floors with cinnamon water will make your home smell great without staining the floors or making them sticky. Plus, its smell will help deter ants from the areas you mop.
To make cinnamon water, add a few cinnamon sticks to a gallon of water in a pot and bring it to a boil. Then, pour the water into your mop bucket, and mop the floors as usual.
For a boost in ant-repelling power, add a good amount of cinnamon essential oil or cinnamon powder to the water. Note, however, that cinnamon essential oil may be harmful to pets.
