What’s the best mop?

This is a really tough question as it really depends on what you want to clean. Lets just concentrate on mops that will clean floors, in particular residential floors such as wood, laminate, vinyl and ceramic. Whether you look in hardware stores, department stores or on-line you’ll find a variety of mops. The mops themselves are made of:
• Cotton blend
• Rayon blend
• Microfiber
• Sponge
There are also different types:
• Cotton blend strings
• Other blend strings
• String/small strips mix
• Small fiber strips
• Wide throw away fiber cloths
• Washable microfiber pads
• Various sponge shapes
to list just a few.
Most of the mops and handles are made of plastic with a few made of metal such as steel or aluminum.

The ones that I’ve learned are not worth the money are the cheap plastic mops. I’ve broken several handles over the years and if they have a metal connection between the handle and the mop head, it just rusts and falls off after a while. My favourite is the aluminum/plastic combination with only a bit of plastic where the manufacturer had no choice when using the plastic and it’s well made. This type of mop is light weight, won’t rust, won’t break when I use it for tough jobs and is durable.

I’ve used string mops, but I’m not pleased with the final look it gives to a floor. It leaves it streaky. The mop head also gets stinky if left wet for a while or if you use it to clean something really dirty like urine or stagnant water. I’ve used the strip mops for cleaning urine etc. and after a while when it gets really disgusting I throw it out but that’s not good for the environment. I’ve also used the wide throw away cloths that you dust and throw out. They work ok but again, I was just throwing cloths into the garbage which is bad for the environment. I’ve used the sponge mops (yes, I’ve used a lot of different mops over the years) and the better-quality ones have nice solid metal handles but for some reason the sponge doesn’t give a smug free surface. It also doesn’t absorb spills easily or wash especially dirty floors well.

Of all the mops I’ve tried, my favourite is the Silver Mop Pro from the creators of the Flexi-Felt. It has a lightweight mop handle and mop plate made of aluminum and just a bit of plastic. The pads are a washable microfiber pad that I just throw in with my regular laundry and wash. If I clean something really stinky, I soak the mop pad in a bucket with bleach or some other product. It comes out fine and I just keep reusing it. I can dust floors, walls, ceilings and any other flat surfaces I can think of. It can also wash all those surfaces including the outside of the house, deck, pool, RV….

Valentine’s Day – What to get your sweetie?

You thinking about getting her flowers? A great idea but they only last a few days and then go in the garbage. Chocolate? Most women LOVE chocolate but NOT what it does to their hips and waistlines. Diamonds? Few women would say no to that but who can afford that these days? Perfume? No – too many kinds to choose from. What to give her that shows your sense of humor and that you’re thinking and really care about her? How about the Silver Mop Pro Deluxe Kit? No…. I am not nuts. No women wants a toaster, let alone a mop kit. The unique thing about the Silver Mop Deluxe kit is that it looks like flowers (Long Stem Rose in a Pot, Gladiolus, Giant Hibiscus….) but everything in the kit is usable. OK, that shows your humorous side (a mop kit that looks like a flower). The “thinking and caring” (or the L word) part is that you include an IOU “once per month of cleaning floors for 2015”. Even if you only do it once or twice it will show that you cared enough to think about it (and hey, with the Silver Mop Pro combo kit you will find that it takes very little time and effort to do that for her). Sweetie ALWAYS appreciates help around the house. Why not give her that this Valentine’s day? You can bet she will brag to all of her friends about the unique and special gift you gave her.

Easier Floor Cleaning

As you know I was telling you how easy it is to clean your floors with the Silver Mop Pro. Well now they combined it with the Clear Clean Pro. You just spray a six foot by six foot section, mop it in one direction and move on to the next section. How quick and easy is that. After the party, when all of the guests are gone, and more will be coming the next day, what is more easy then a quick spray and mop to clean and refresh your floors. Your next guests will never know you had company the day before. No harsh fumes, no products in the garbage and the mop pads get washed the next time a load of laundry is done. Quick, inexpensive and good for the environment. By the way, it’s a really good idea to get extra pads so you don’t run short.
