I have owned this mop about 2 years ago and I totally prefer it over my steam mop, one because it's easy to wring (not much when it's new because it's fluffy) and it's washable and I don't use it as a broom because it's a MOP [...] .it is moderate absorbent but when I use it i turn on the ceiling fan to help it dry; I hated the classic mop that you have to wring it with your hands because it grossed me out so this is the best althought the refills are pricey.
READ the directions! The first time I used it I wasn't impressed. Soak it in warm water before using! Then it works great. I use it on the hardwood floors at home and at my restaurant. Just sweep up the big stuff. It works 10 times better than a sponge mop or any other mop I've used.
I like this mop. It works just fine on my tile floors and has little scrubber pads that help remove stuck-on stains. It's easy to clean and doesn't hold onto yucky odors and stains. It's not the easiest to wring out, when compared to a sponge, but I have no problems. You just twist it all the way one way and, if necessary, twist it the opposite way. I've never had an issue with it being difficult to drain/dry. I always wash and drain it before storage and it's just fine.As far as pushing crumbs...well, that's not the purpose of a mop. You are supposed to sweep before mopping. It's pretty gross not to because any mop will simply spread crumbs around. Nothing but a vacuum or a dust pan is intended to do anything to remove crumbs and dirt, as opposed to push them around.
This mop is awesome! The microfiber pads trap dirt! The best part about this is that you can take the pad off and wash it. I have kids in and out of the house and this mop can tackle their messes! The pads last a long time...haven't had to replace mine yet. Although I do recommend getting a second pad so you can keep on cleaning when the first one gets dirty.
The microfiber material isn't meant to be slid across the floor.
I tried to wipe down my kitchen floor, but the mop head kept folding back.
Perhaps it's meant for dusting the floor WITHOUT water...
but why would I want to dust the floor when I can wipe it clean?
Don't bother with this product. It was a waste of [$].
I love this mop. We've had it for about a year now. I use it daily and have never had an issue with it. And I can easily mop my floor with plain vinegar and water, instead of using chemical cleaners.
I have used this for 8 months now, and after some vinegar leaked from the pump mechanism, the steel bar inside the pole rusted and jammed up the pump. To fix, I took this apart, coated the bar with WD40 and Vaseline, flipped the bar upside down so the non-rusted end was close to the pump, cleaned the pump, and it was as good as new. If the bar were made of aluminum or plastic this problem could be avoided all together.
This is the first sponge mop I have had that gets the job I want done. I find that any sponge mop needs frequent rinsing when used on dirty floors, so that does not put me off. It makes quick work of removing that icky gunk from your kitchen floors, and the foam pad held up well for me. I use it more as an extension arm magic eraser so I don't have to crawl around on the floor. It really saves my back. I love it!
I used roller mops for years.
This is the worst mop I've ever had.
Like Kenley mentioned,
it retains too much moisture after wringing.
And what's more, the quality of the sponge is EXTREMELY LOW.
I unpacked the mop, used it for 5 min and the sponge started to tear apart.
It's tile floor, for crying out loud!
Definitely will return it!
I love the Magic Eraser. It's, well, magic. The mop? Not magic at all. In fact, a major disappointment. Excited to use my new mop I set to work on my tile floor. The first few strokes were certainly clean but after that the mop simply smeared murky water around my floor. I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed the mop head to no avail. I had to get on my hands and knees and re-clean the floor by hand. The handle is comfortable but a handle alone doesn't clean. [...].
