Let me reveal a better way to clean!
I present the Reveal Spray Mop from Rubbermaid!
Rubbermaid. My mum got lots of their storage solutions when I was young and they are still being used decades after. So the brand definitely speaks quality and durability.
But to be frank, I never had the chance to try out their household cleaning products. Thanks to Porter Novelli and Aussie Mummy Bloggers, I received a complimentary set to try out.
Since we got puppy Dali, I constantly find myself bent over the floor, with a spray bottle and paper towels on hands. Apologies for the image but How do you tell a cavoodle not to step on its wee and run off? Yes, Dali pees on the pad (hurray!) but he drops trickles and makes paw prints on the floor after he's done with his business. I just had to clean it up right away. Then wash his paws too.
Unfortunately, this motion has taken its toll on my back again which has been predisposed to hurt when I stupidly burdened myself early last year to mop the floorboards DAILY. The therapist said the pulling and pushing action is the culprit and so I had to tolerate deep tissue massage for weeks to relieve the pain. So I was open to a less stressful alternative.
The REVEAL MOP system proved handy and convenient and less taxing on my back. It was designed to SAVE MONEY and WASTE LESS. Can you imagine how much money is spent on disposable pads? It made me realized how I wasn't being frugal for years. Yikes!
Anyway, the box came with a mop, a microfiber cloth (was already attached to the mop) and a bottle for you to put YOUR OWN SOLUTION (whether its ammonia, baking soda, vinegar etc.). I simply poured in my current cleaning product, pop the bottle in the mop and spray once in a while during the mopping process. TOO EASY!
The handle is amazingly STURDY & LIGHT, unlike other mops which have either too heavy or flimsy handles that make mopping more hard work than it should be. Filling up the bottle would of course give extra weight.
The mop head was just the right size. Not too wide or narrow. And is really EASY TO MANEUVER between chair legs, under the table and crevices. The MICROFIBER picks up dirt well too, 50% more dirt per swipe it says on the packaging. Way better than traditional sponge mops.
But what I appreciate most is the WASHABLE microfiber cloth. I am simply averse to using a dirtied up mop. I am sure I can grab some extra at Bunnings to use when the other is in the laundry. Why not be green this year too, yeah?
And most importantly my other hand is free of the spray bottle!
