Spin & Go Mop Review & Giveaway

{This giveaway has ended. Congrats to Harriett $183} Trust me when I tell you, I mop a lot of floors! I vacuum over 5000 square feet on a daily basis and a lot of that floor also needs to be mopped. While I don't mop daily, it's something I do at least weekly.

And it's a job that I dislike. When I clean, I want to do a really good job with as few chemicals as possible. For years, I mopped on my hands and knees until I discovered a large microfiber mop that changed my mopping world forever.

Never one to pass up an opportunity to improve the way I clean, I jumped at the chance to review the Spin & Go mop. It just so happened to arrive at my doorstep just as I was finishing up our construction project and was about to clean the new floors.

So I filled the bucket with water and set out to mop our rubber exercise room floor, the bathroom tile, and the kitchen tile. My kids ran to help with the "spinning".
Here are my thoughts:
The mop is super soft and the bucket is the perfect size for holding rinse water. The mop did a great job cleaning the dusty surfaces. It was fun to use the spinner and it really did ring out the mop (think salad spinner, but requiring less work.) It was super convenient to have the bucket/ringer right with me while I was mopping, and I loved not having to touch the mop head in any way.

I'm glad I used it on our tile and rubber floors and not on the wood flooring. I think the mop does a good job, but the mop ends can sometimes fold under, exposing the hard green plastic top and scraping the floor. I wouldn't want to risk scratching my hardwood floors. Tile can take it, so I'm happy to use this on my new tile floors. Also, I would prefer a bigger mop head. I realize that a bigger mop head would require a bigger spinner and bucket, but to mop as much surface area as I do, I really need something that gets the job done quicker.

Want to give this mop a try for yourself? You're in luck, one Suburban Jungle reader will receive a Spin & Go Touchless Cleaning system!

I don't have a time saving tip, as I wash the floors on my hands and knees with a sponge, as I can't find a good mop!

My best time saving tip is to mop when the kids are in bed. It's the only time I can get it done without anyone walking over it before it's dry.

I use an electron broom that has an attchment to get all the corners so when I mop it's extra clean and you don't have extra guck attached to your mop.

My time saving mopping tip is to have people take off their shoes before walking on the floors if they are muddy.

Again, my best tip is to clean up spills right away. I don't like cleaning something that is already starting to dry.

I make sure that I do not put too much soap and too much water on it.

Someone else has said this, but I also like to vacuum the floor before mopping. I also like to use the vacuum hose to get into corners and under my stove. vidomich(at)yahoo(dot)com

I always keep the mops clean. After using I wash it out. garettsambo@aol.com

My best tip...Have someone else do it!

This may seem weird but it works. If someone spills something sticky, we put socks on, spray the floor then scoot around the floor. Then the socks go in the washer!

I’ve been using that on my rubber carpets for months and it’s highly recommendable! By using this, unwanted mess and dirty water spills are now “never-my-problem”. I’ve
Been even joking to my husband now that my new favorite job is carpet cleaning!

mothers like us are busy types, so lesser time with cleaning means more time with the family. Thanks to the free tips of Long Island cleaning services crew members across our house, they’ve been so helpful!
