I do not know about you but I am finding that housekeeping is harder as I get older. In my young days I could clean my house in one day, top to bottom.( Of course my houses were not as big as the one we have now.) In fact my dear husband called my housekeeping, Cleaning Aerobics, as I flew around the house!! Now I clean certain rooms on certain days...and I will admit to resting between chores. The housekeeping chore that really gives me a challenge is mopping. With hardwood floors and ceramic tiles in most of the rooms, I have to mop. Swiffering only keeps the mopping at bay! And with hardwood floors, I try to mop, then use a microfiber mop head to get up all the water so it does not damage the floors. It is quite a task.
So when I saw this advertised on tv, I was intrigued.
And the results? I was very pleased with how it worked and I think it will help me to mop more often instead of putting it off with a Swiffer wet pad. And I dare to dream it will replace those swiffers all together. There are some things you need to be aware of in using this product....
1. Do not fill the bucket above the water level marked on the inside.
2. Practice with the foot pump to determine how wet or dry you want your mop head to be.
3. It takes a moment to get the mop head in "mopping position" after you remove it from the wringer. I am learning that it is best to just shake the mop a bit before putting it on the floor to mop.
I just hope that the wringing mechanism holds up because that is the genius part of this mopping system. Over all I am pleased with my purchase and it does make mopping much easier.
