Have you ever had a time when your child eats ice-cream on a cone..and you’ll see the ice-cream melt faster than him eating it? It goes drip drip drip on your floor and your heart goes bip-bop just a little faster. And then, the kids step all over it..making the floor, just one big sticky mess? Ever? Well… I’ve had plenty of those moments, and I tell you it drives me up the wall. One of the factors being that we don’t wear shoes in the house, so we really get to feel the stickyness of the ice-cream…or what’s left of it.
Thankfully, when the people at Rubbermaid sent me their latest product the Reveal Spray Mop, I’ve had many excellent opportunities to test it out..and I’ve had less drama in my life, since then!
About Rubbermaid “Reveal” Spray Mop :
Save more and waste less with the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop. The microfiber pad is reusable so you no longer have to buy disposable pads. Plus Reveal picks up 50% more dirt and dust per swipe than traditional mops. The Refillable Spray bottle allows you to stop buying expensive solutions and create your own using your favorite household cleaner or use plain hot water.
Buy It! : ..and here’s the big WHY you should get one. It seriously saves water! Normally, I’d use half a bucket of water to mop my entire house. With the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop, I only used 1 cup. Yup…just 200ml of plain water. Half a bucket = 5 litres. And, it was so easy to use, especially when kids mess up the floor… I just took out the Reveal Spray Mop, sprayed on the offending mess, and wiped it away. Good as new. I didn’t have the extra work of filling up the bucket and dunking it twice, squeeze excess water off, mopping it, dunking it again to rinse it off, squeeze excess water off, mopping again, and dunking it to clean it off, squeeze excess water, drain the water from the bucket….phew! even typing all that was tiring!
Even washing the microfibre pad was a breeeeeze! All I had to do was remove the visible dust balls, and let the washing machine do the rest. Honestly, it was really so much less work! Works well on most floors – wood/timber and tiles. It is non-battery operated, as you trigger the spray at the handle (pretty similar to a spray bottle). And the mop swivels just about any nook and cranny. I was really impressed at how it just swivelled whereever I wanted it to.
It was sooo easy, that even my 8 year old could clean up his (and his brothers’) mess!!!!!! Now…less work + increased effectiveness + less time = a very happy you. If this doesn’t do it for you, I’m not sure what will.
You can get it at selected Bunnings stores, and it is retailing for AUD39.90, and the microfibre pad is available separately at AUD9.99 (but it will last for 100 washes, so I think it’s pretty long-lasting).
