A while back, I read on a friend’s blog that her house suffers from chaos. C.h.a.o.s. in her definition was “Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome.” Ever since then, whenever I look around my house and see destruction, that’s what I think of.
I’m not a fan of cleaning… more than once on my blogs I’ve explained that it’s Stay-At-Home-Mom, not Stay-At-Home-Maid. Yes, I clean but it just isn’t on the top of my list of things I feel like spending time doing.
When we moved back to Iowa two years ago, we started celebrating holidays with my family. Typically, that means going to my parents’ house. Well, my dad had knee surgery a few weeks ago, so I offered to host it at my house. You know what that meant? Cleaning.
Just so happened that I was sent a Libman Wonder Mop to review. Perfect timing, I tell you. I’ll also tell you that it worked really well…
When I do mop, it’s using the type of mop on the left in the picture. You dip it, use the handle to pull back and wring it out, mop then repeat. When you are done, you try to rinse it off or ditch it and put in a replacement. With the WonderMop, you dip it, then push the handle down and twist. The water comes out of the holes really well. When you are done, you remove the mop head and throw it in the washer. What a novel idea.
While I had difficulty with scrubbing really hard stains, everything else about the Wonder Mop was great. It got into the nooks and crevices around and under appliances. With the other mop, I couldn’t even get under the kick area of the cabinets, let along close under the front of the fridge. When using the Wonder Mop, I was also able to do double-duty and get the baseboards at the same time. That’s especially good since it meant that I could fly through the baseboards and get the gunk and dust and not have to go back and do them by hand… or worse yet, skip them like normal. Finally, I didn’t have to worry about any hard or metal pieces scratching the cabinets or base boards which was always a fear with the other ones I’ve used.. This is a great product and I’m glad I got a chance to test it out!
