I always argue with my hubby over mops, that might sound daft but the truth is I can’t stand the smell of wet mops or buckets. It doesn’t matter if you clean them well they always have a certain smell to them. I’ve even tried soaking them in sweet smelling liquid, but still they smell like mops, dirty and damp and I hate them. Also, lugging a bucket around with you will mopping is a definite no no for me.
My hubby hates my steam mop, he thinks it’s too much effort to set up, he doesn’t like being restricted by the cord and he can’t get into the corners properly with it.I have to agree with him, but, when it’s dirty I can rip off the pad and throw it in the washing machine…no smell!
I was asked if I’d like to try a Spray Mop. I’ve used micro fibre mops before and although you can take the pad off and throw it in the washing machine, I’ve found that they don’t last very long, or clean the floor properly.
I liked the idea that the spray mop cleaned windows too. My steam mop cleans windows but I really do find it a pain to get it set up and the cord is really restrictive when it comes to windows.

So, what did I think of this 2-in-1 Spray Mop?

What’s in the Box?
You get the mop and it’s handle. A water bottle which is already attached to the mop, two micro fibre mop heads and a window cleaning attachment.
Testing it Out
I put the mop together quite easily, although hubby had to help me get it to click into place as I don’t have much strength. The I filled the mop, which again was easy once I’d actually worked it out. The only instructions were on the box and they said to remove cap and fill. I couldn’t find the cap, I guess I was thinking it was more like my steam mop where you fill it without removing the container, but it wasn’t. You had to remove the container from the mop to find the red cap…mine was black. It was pretty simple to take off, fill and return to the mop.
I started mopping my kitchen. The micro fibre head took a little while to work, you have to get it wet first but once it did, well, wow, I was truly impressed.
The micro fibre head is quite big and cleans big places quickly. My kitchen floor is quite big, over 7 metres long and it was really clean in just minutes. I sprayed from the handle and swept the mop over the floor. No buckets, no wringing out, it was quick and easy. BUT, most impressive was how the mop got right into the corners and edges of my kitchen. It reached parts that my steam mop doesn’t and I was impressed. It even goes under your appliances to give the floor a clean under there. I can’t reach under there with my steam mop or a regular mop. The floor was not soaking wet when finished. I’d only used half the bottle of water. A wet slippy floor is something I don’t want with my poor balance and three little ones running around.
As I still had half a bottle I also cleaned my hallway, also 7 metres long but not as wide. Then I cleaned my downstairs bathroom and here I was really impressed on how the mop cleaned the hardest to reach places. It’s quite a wide mop but it rotates really easily and using it sideways you can get into small places like behind the toilet.
I was really, really happy with the cleaning ability.
Care of Mop.
Once finished you have to make sure that the water bottle is empty and remove the microfiber cloth head if it is dirty. The cloth comes off easily, but it’s also quite secure when mopping. I’ve had some micro fibre mops which were velcro set and once wet they start moving around and loose their stick. This mop sticks to a plastic spike setting and it is really secure until you rip it off.
The micro fibre pad was not that dirty so I didn’t throw it in the washing machine just yet, I rinsed it out in the bathroom sink and it came up clean. I left it to dry naturally for the next use. It looks like it will last a long time, it’s much thicker than any micro fibre mop cloth I’ve used before.
It was really easy to attach the window cleaner to the mop. I sprayed the window and rubbed it clean with the micro fibre cloth head. Then I turned it around to make sure it was dry and smear free with the rubber squeegee which works really well. It made cleaning my patio doors really easy and that’s generally a job I hate.
Pros and Cons
The mop is lightweight and easy to use.
You can use your own cleaner, you don’t have to buy anything special. I bought a litre of Cif for just £1 and it worked great and I only had to use a little.
The bottle of cleaner lasts for ages so you don’t need to keep refilling it, with one bottle I cleaned my kitchen, my hallway and two bathrooms. I changed to window cleaner to clean my patio doors and I remembered to only half fill the bottle.
The micro fibre cloths clean really well and are easy to clean in the washing machine when dirty.
The mop gets into hard to reach places with ease because of it’s shape and manoeuvrability, but it ‘s still big enough to clean large spaces quickly.
It cleans all sorts of floors, from wood to lino.
The squeegee on the window cleaner works better than any I’ve used before.
The instructions are not exceptionally clear. It took me a while to work out how to remove and fill the water bottle.
It’s a bit stiff clicking the mop together in the first place, but it’s not something you have to do again once it’s done.
I would definitely recommend this mop to my family and friends, it’s a big thumbs up from me. At time of publishing this post the mop can be purchased for £18.95 which is a little more than I’d pay for a regular mop but less than half the price of my steam mop…which may be going into retirement.
