This is what we call "sock moppin'". We put on socks (well, the girls do) and throw some water on the floor and away we go!
I subscribe to a website called "Flylady.com" and this "sockmoppin'" is an idea that came from a "flybaby" (although I came up with the name). If you have trouble keeping your house tidy, I wholeheartedly suggest a visit to the sight. You'll think "how can it be so simple" and "why didn't I think of that" when you read her strategy. But it works - so if you're in need of help...it's free!
