Make cleaning more fun with the Vileda Easy Wring and Clean Turbo Microfibre Mop and Bucket Set. A simple way to get your floors sparkling.
Don’t you always feel that the New Year bring time for a new start? It is a time to start listing resolutions and goals for the year ahead. I always feel that the New Year should start with a clean and sparkling home. One of my mum’s sayings was “If it is like that on New Year’s Day, it will be like that all year”. This always prompts me to give the house a good clean on New Year’s Eve. I always hope that by doing this then the piles of ironing will stay done all year, the floors will stay clean and the house stay sparkling. It never works but it is worth a try.
One of my pet hates, apart from ironing, is mopping floors. I have a terrible habit of destroying mops. My kitchen cupboard contains about four mops, all sadly lacking a head. I have been unable to replace the heads as they are no longer available. I have been cleaning the floor on my hands and knees using a cloth. My floors tend to get quite dirty as the dog tends to leave fur everywhere. Cleaning them regularly like this is not much fun. Fortunately Vileda came to my rescue recently by offering to send me one of their Vileda Easy Wring and Clean Turbo Microfibre Mop and Bucket Set. I was hoping this would make the task of cleaning the floors much simpler.
So what’s in the box? My dog, Eddie, was very interested in the contents. Inside you will find a mop head, bucket and attachment for holding the head to the mop. The mop head clips easily onto the mop and replacement heads can be bought easily. The handle looks small, but it is actually telescopic. When you are cleaning it extends to make it longer. When you want to put the mop away just slide the handle down. This is a great feature making the mop so much easier to store.
Having put the mop together I put it to work on my kitchen floor which is lino and my bathroom floor which has tiles. The bucket is a nice size, it is slightly elongated in shape making it easy to put the mop in one side. The bucket is easy to carry from room to room which makes things easier. I need to take the mop upstairs to clean the bathroom floor. With this bucket I don’t need to worry about spills.There is a maximum fill marker inside the bucket so you don’t add excess water.
The one feature of the bucket that really makes mopping the floor more fun is the foot pedal operated wringer. Fill the bucket with water and cleaning fluid then pop the mop in to get it wet. Lift the mop into the wringer and pump the foot pedal up and down a few times. The wringer goes round removing the excess water from the mop by centrifugal force. The floor can then be mopped without an excess of water trailing behind. The foot pedal makes it really easy as well, you don’t need to bend down to wring out the mop.
The mop is really easy to use. The triangular head makes it easy to get into corners and will easily slip under furniture if that is required. My floors were soon sparkling and clean. The mop even got rid of the excess dog hair that can cling to the edges of the floor. After use the bucket is easy to empty out and the dirty mop head can just be washing in a washing machine to get it clean. This ensures you are cleaning your floors with a clean mop the next time you use it.
I found the Vileda Easy Wring and Clean Turbo Microfibre Mop and Bucket Set very easy to use. The microfibre mop does a good job of cleaning the floor and the bucket makes it really easy, and fun to wring the water out. The whole system was easy to transport around the house and it did a good job on both my lino and tiled floors leaving them sparkling. I would definitely recommend this mop if you need a replacement.
