    The Best | Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop

    We have bought our share of mops: string mops, sponge mops, odd puffy mops, cloth mops, hands-free mops, mops with special wringer buckets, mops with twisty special wringer accessories. All have been pretty much dismal. None have lasted more than a few months, if that. Many have been so convoluted to use that we just gave up and tossed them.

    Ah, but the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop! What a joy! You fill the plastic bottle with a mere two teaspoons of cleaner (yes, two teaspoons, not tablespoons), fill the rest of the bottle with water, insert it into the mop, and then go, go, go. The mop sprays the mixed cleaning solution across the floor, and you — well, mop. No splashing, no puddling, no rinsing, no wringing.

    The microfiber pad goes right into the washing machine and lasts and lasts. After a year, the pad’s still like new. We bought an extra pad ($5.99), so, when one is in the laundry, we have the other. For about $10, you can also buy a two-pack of dry-dusting pads at Amazon.com so you can use your Reveal Mop to replace your Swiffer, too.

    So what is the price on the best mop my husband and I have ever used? The mop goes for $24.99 at Target. Considering that a soon-to-be-stinky string mop costs $10 or more, it’s a bargain at the price.
