Your Recommendation for Hard Floor Cleaner Method

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I used to love Libman's ragmop that is detachable, washable, and refillable.

I love love love that you detach the mop head and toss it in the washer. I am frugal, I do not believe in buying disposable pads and special cleaners, when old fashioned mop bucket, hot water, a drop of dish deterg, and elbow grease will do the job just fine.

The Libman mop works like old-fashioned mopping in a bucket. The stick part has a plastic piece you slide down to & over the mop head that is supposed to squeeze out the excess mop water.

I still use it now, but just bought a new refill because the rag mop head part of it, seemed so little. When squeezing there is not enough bulk there, so no matter how hard you squeeze you can't get enough water out, so it's drippier than I want to work with.

I thought it had thinned out and reduced in size over time, from use and from washing, so I thought I just needed to replace it. But quickly found out, no, there is still not enough bulk there, even with a brand new one. I don't think I have changed. ? So I think they must have reduced the amount of cleaning cloth/fibers in the mop head. Either that or I'm going crazy (JUST NOW suddenly started caring about it being too drippy?? I don't think so.) In any case, I'm looking for a new mop system, reusable, non-disposable, no special solution needed because I'm definitely NOT buying their solution, for hard wood, tile, and linoleum floors.

I prefer manual, non-electronic.

I found this article about the O'Cedar Pro Mist Spray Mop,

with a recipe for homemade cleaner included. Has anyone used this O'Cedar? What do you recommend?

    No I use the one that you can throw in the washer and then put it back on the mop handle. It is made of cotton string and I have a bucket that like the ones that the janitors used in school until they went to that one like you have but is usable and you just put the cloth in the washer and use again.

    I have not used these. I use an old fashioned mop I have had for years.
