All about mops

All about mops

Postby YJL » Mon Dec 12, 2011 9:43 pm

Have been using the traditional mop with bucket of water to mop floor. Sourcing around for alternatives to replace it for time-saving and effective cleaning. I'm thinking of getting Spin & Mop, however those steam mop, spray and mop looks good too. Please share What do you use to mop your floor daily? How often do you mop your floor? What floor detergent do you use. Thanks for sharing :smile:

We ever used the Roman mop. Quite hard to reach corner. Now we spin type. Quite good floor dries quickly. But expensive when I bought it from DIY shop. Anyone Knows where to get cheaper ones let me know.

I personally like Magic Clean wet mop, but it is rather expensive.
But considering it is disposable and don't need to wash, it saves time and water, so it may be about the same.

Have been maidless for the past 1 week as maid went on home leave,
and I have been using the Magic Clean dry and wet mop and it is really clean and saves time and energy.

My maid does not like the magic clean mop, so i bot her the 3M mop which she does not like either. As 50% of my flooring is parquet, i don't use the traditional mop, so my maid rather hand mop.
