What kind of mop do you use?

I use 3 the swifter, rag mop, sponge mop for quicky spills. I think I am going down to two-swifter and rag.


I can't seem to keep the rag mop smelling good, I am always buying a new one.

What the heck am I doing wrong??

  • do you wash them after using? i use vinegar in my washing machine to wash my cloth mopheads, everytime i use them. hot water and vinegar. they always smell fresh-i bought both at the same time, one for hardwood floors(deeper pile), the other for other hard surfaces, about 2 1/2mos ago. i'll probably replace them at the 6mos-mark.

  • The only thing I use is a rag and a bucket to clean my floors. The good ole hands and knees technique. If something gets spilled then I either throw a towel over it or wipe it up with a paper towel.

  • I use the swiffer...I am not fond of it, I dont think it cleans that well, but we live in a tiny apt and have very small areas to clean so for now it is fine.

  • i think the steam mops are much better than the swiffers. they cost more, but there are no chemicals, and no waste!

  • I use the swifter then I use the steam mop afterwards you would not believe how much more stuff you get up after you use the swifter to the steam mop. I couldn't believe it.
