When I first moved to our apartment I was super happy with almost everything! We were finally faaarrrr away from everything and everyone! Haha! We were in our zone! Being a westerner I was a little put off by the size of the apartment especially for the price but I have learnt to appreciate it. And as my husband said “ less space equals less junk!”
The broker had soo many papers for my husband to sign it’s almost as if he was taking out a mortgage!
Unfortunately after about one week with lots of moving around and all the wooden floor was no longer shiny as when we just arrived!
I had no idea what to put on it to restore it. Ididn’t know where to go to get anything so Ijust did the best I could; sweep, and wipe- until a few weeks ago I went into our local sundrug and saw some bottles with pictures of wooden floor with those sparkly graphics used to show shine. I figured it had to be a floor polish ( could not decipher a single one of the Japanese words- too many odd kanji’s in between katakana). I wasn’t too keen on the liquid for fear of making a mess. That was when I discovered these beauties! They work like a charm. It’s a 10 sheet packet for less than ¥400 . All I had to do was pop one sheet out, place it on the broom and rub over the floor. Boom! Floor shiny and new again!
I just wish that in the future when companies are letting properties they’d give a sample of the cleaning products they use to maintain the places- unless they want it to be in a state of ruin so they can justify their reason for subtracting money from the deposit that is to be returned at the end of a contract.
Hi! I’m an educator/stay-at-home mom with an educator husband, a teenage daughter and six months old son. I loooove to cook, gets excited about curries and have a serious weakness for pastry especially cakes! Enjoy being outdoors, reading and sewing.
Ah, that would be genius if the companies would let us know the best products for cleaning certain things - we had floors like that when we lived in Tokyo too and they were hard to keep looking glossy like that! Wish I'd known about that product when I had those floors!!
