Small Challenges

Traveling does not come without challenges and sacrifices.  Some of them weight heavily during our entire journey, while others -small ones- are just the result of leaving the comfort of home.  Today I want to talk about those small challenges (SM), those that make traveling a creative exercise, and add color to our experience.  For example, having your clothes scrambled in a suitcase instead of neatly organized in your closet is what I consider a small challenge.
This week I faced one of them.  See, José Luis and I were lucky to find a fantastic apartment that was within our budget.  It has tile instead of carpet, one of the many features we loved about it.  However, all this walking on the streets of Buenos Aires, our getting in and out of the apartment made the floors pretty duty.  I was determined to solve this problem.  The thing is…. I have no cleaning tools!  So… I came up with the awesome solution posted below.  J

What solutions have you found to ease your traveling days?  Please share!

Ta da!!!

I have the same issue with my kitchen tiles! After I clean it I always walk around on towels!

@Rease
I may just start cleaning floors like this from now on. It is also a good workout!

I love it. You should have made a video of you cleaning the floors :-)

Hey, you are very innovative! I got a Buenos Aires temporary rent last year when I first arrived in Argentina and I wanted to clean it even though the previous tenant had done it. I would have made a lot of use of your idea!
