    Did With

    "He swept, mopped, and scrubbed the kitchen floor, like he did with the bedroom floor."

    Is the last part correct English? Or should it be:

    "He swept, mopped, and scrubbed the kitchen floor, like he did the bedroom floor."

    "Like he did with" doesn't work well for me. However, I prefer "as he did the bathroom floor".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
