While every change of season brings with it the urge to clean, purge, organize and start fresh, Spring is certainly the season where the cleaning bug hits us the hardest. Perhaps it’s because those April showers bring in so much mud, dirt, and grime into the house!
This Spring, I’ve been testing out the Vileda EasyWring Spin Mop and Bucket System in my household and I discovered that I, too, can have new beginnings – I’ve discovered that I actually like mopping and this cleaning system when I really didn’t think I would!
I used a mop as the primary way to clean my floors many years ago and then was swayed by, of course, marketing and the promise of “less mess” with dry-cloth cleaning. While a dry cloth works wonders for dog hair and dust bunnies, cleaning a floor with a spray mop – a squirt here and there – would sometimes feel more like spot cleaning than a thorough mop-worthy clean.
Adding the traffic of a husband, three kids and a dog to my floors through the years called for more cleaning products and more squirts with the spray mop and duster cloths. Yes, the cloths are all disposable and while that didn’t bother me much, I wondered if the price vs usefulness was the best value for our budget.
The Vileda EasyWring Spin Mop and Bucket System has shown me that not only does a wet-mop not mean mess, it’s actually quite innovative, efficient, budget and environment friendly AND it gets my floors much cleaner than they’ve been in awhile. This is a win, people, and here’s why…
First, mops themselves have changed. The Vileda EasyWring System has a 100% microfibre head which works hard to remove dirt and grime, and then – get this – pops off easily and can go right into the washing machine! The microfibre head itself is good for up to 10 machine washes, but you don’t have to wash it every time it’s used, of course (I don’t).
The exclusive bucket design with built-in wringer allows for hands-free wringing so obviously no manicure needs to be harmed in this process. On that note, the high-quality foot pedal is designed to activate spin wringing, allowing the level of moisture to be controlled. Got an area covered with muddy dog prints? More water!
A nice wash across the living room floor to make it shine? Less water! You and your pedicured toes are in charge.
Unlike a rectangular shaped mop, the microfiber head of the Vileda EasyWring Spin Mop and Bucket System fits into tight spots, which is especially important in kitchens and bathrooms. I even discovered that you can clean the sides of the toilet base with the mop, which you can’t do with a rectangular, stiff, head on other mops.
Because you’re using the Vileda EasyWring Mop and Bucket system, what you clean with is entirely up to you which is especially important in households with children and pets. You can opt to use your favorite brand’s floor cleaner, an organic company’s eco-friendly alternative, essential oils or just water.
The Vileda EasyWring Mop and Bucket System has made me a believer after seeing our floors shine. The ‘ol mop and bucket system has come a long way since your mom’s days, and it’s time you take a look! Look for Vileda products at Walmart ($39.97), Staples ($45.99) and Amazon ($39.97).
