Blue Magic 360 Spin Mop

If you are still using an old mop, you need to try out the Blue Magic 360 spin mop. It is newly designed for 2014, spins 360 degrees for you to get your floor really clean, and wrings out that icky water so you don't have to get your hands dirty.

The mop is a microfiber cloth that can be thrown in the washer to wash in the gentle cycle. Save the environment by not using the disposable cloths. You can use it wet or dry to sweep and mop up your dirty floors quickly and easily. The unique micro-fibers used in the mop head resist wear, fight bacteria and clean without scratching floors or delicate surfaces. The package includes two mop heads.

The heavy duty bucket helps hold your water, and dries out your mop without getting your hands dirty. The spinner part is made of stainless steel to be really sturdy. You can either handle press or pedal to spin the water out of your mop.

The bucket and the handle come in either pink or blue, so you can enjoy looking at your mop while you are cleaning.


Dual Action Microfiber Flip Mop

If you want to save money, then this dual action microfiber flip mop is for you. It is dual purpose, since you can use both sides. One side is microfiber, and the other side is chenille. It is easy to flop it over from one side to another. The mop is also washable for up to 100 times. The refills are sold separately so you do not need to buy a whole new mop.

You can use it dry to attract dust, dirt, and hair. It is great for hardwood floors. You can rotate it 360 degrees to get under furniture and tight spaces. You can also use it on damp floors. The directions say you only need water, but you can use vinegar and water for a thorough clean. You can mop it on one side, then flip it over and dry the floor with the other side.

The dual action microfiber flip mop flips over so you can switch from the chenille to microfiber part and back.

Thanks for your endorsement Rochelle and your additional recommendation! Next time I need a vac, I'll look into the Lynx.

I do like the spin mop and bucket, it works surprisingly well. I have a big kitchen floor. I also have a cordless lightweight upright vac with a rechargeable battery. (Hoover Lynx) It's great on a hard floor or carpet, especially for pet hair and crumbs.

Thank you for your visit ecogranny. The worst part of mopping for me is wringing out the mop. This squeezing mechanism makes it so much easier!

Even though I have a mopping robot, every now and then I need a mop and bucket, and that spinning mop with its squeezing mechanism looks like a good deal. Thanks for all the tips here.

I'm sorry you can't find that mop in Malaysia. It is available on Amazon here, and I have found it at certain stores at well. Hopefully you can find a reasonable substitute.

Thanks grand old lady. There are plenty of ways to clean a floor. It is important to keep your floors clean to avoid slipping on anything, or stepping on something and hurting your foot if you are walking barefoot. Also it keeps children and pets from eating things they shouldn't.

The floor cleaning robot sounds good, but the Dyson Vac may sound better. This is a good collection of cleaning options.

Anything that makes housework easier has to be good! I like the look of the Dual Action Microfiber Flip Mop as I often want to clean a tiled floor and mop it afterwards. I've tried the Robovac, which would be good for pet hair but unfortunately didn't have strong enough suction for my (messy) needs. Voted useful!

These all sound like great products. Thanks for sharing the information, especially about the Dual Action Flip Mop. I sweep my hardwood floors with a dust mop and then use a regular mop to wash them. I'll have to try to find the Flip Mop and give it a try.
