mop love



I've been holding back about this long enough. It's time to come clean, so to speak. I have formed a serious attachment to my mop.

I've been on the lookout for this mop for about a year. My old mop was one of those squeezy-sponge-bacteria-loves-me types. Every time I mopped I was pretty much spreading dirty water all over my floor to dry. No more, my friends.

While in Massachusetts I went to a normal Target. (You can tell a normal Target from a ghetto Target by the stocked shelves, the friendly employees and being able to find and buy the things you came for. I think I have also formed a serious attachment to normal Targets.) Anyway, a quick trip and my quest was over. They not only had my mop, but several refill mop heads. I know, right? Be still my heart.

What's the big deal, you ask? Well, for starters (and finshers, really. I mean this feature pretty much sold me right away) the mop has a machine washable, removable mop head. I bought 2 additional mop heads and use a new and clean mop head for each room I mop.

After using my new mop I learned two things. My floors were so dirty. And now they are so clean. And that's the kind of thing that can really brighten this girl's day (and, um, floors).

OK. Enough of that. Now, who wants some cake?

What's the mop, yo?

You really like that mop, huh? I'd been hoping to find one that didn't require hauling buckets of water around with me but no luck. I used to have this one so maybe I should just go get a new one like that.

Danielle, Libman! I put a link in there. If you click on the word 'mop' in the first paragraph you can actually see it!

Susan! You got rid of it?!?! Why?!?!

Well, at the time we were moving from one galley kitchen to another and I just thought it would be just as easy to take a rag and wipe off the floor myself--and it was.

Also, now that I think about it, the mop head was not removable. That would give this one a serious edge. I have also moved to the "land of the well-stocked Targets" so I'll look into it next time I'm out. Just as an aside, Robyn, do you know how long it takes me to drive to Target, park, buy two items, get two coffees at the Starbucks, and get back home? Twenty-five minutes. You would love it here.

Robyn said...

Susan!! Are you bragging?!?

You are right. I would love it. I think I would even get a kick out of the winters. Serious hot chocolate consumption.

I don't think anyone with kids gets a kick out of the winters here. Sometimes school is canceled because it's too dangerous to go outside.

I think I live in the ghetto, behind a gigantic normal Target. That's the kind of combo you get in the OC. Out my window is Target's behind.

I had to come over after reading Melissa's blog and see about this mop. My husband has floor cleaning duty so I'll have to show him. He got sucked into buying the H20 steam floor cleaner and I have to admit, it was worth it. That thing is great.

Mop?? what about that cake!! Yum! Yum!

Firefly said...

Yeah, the cake looks pretty good. Is that coconut on the frosting? Loooove coconut.
