Rubbermaid Reveal Mops - Swiffer Type Mop with Your Own Cleaning Solution

Hey all! You know what a pesky job it is to tackle any floor cleaning...for us happy slobs it's definitely not on our happiest to do lists. But, of course it's one of those tasks that just need to get done. So, here's an idea from another Happy Slob to all the rest of us... Donna C. wrote: "Have you seen the Rubbermaid Reveal mops? I read some bad customer reviews on amazon, but I am hoping that it was the customer's fault that they did not work. I bought one a couple of weeks ago at Target. The bottle can be removed and filled with your own cleaning solution and the mopping pads are microfiber and can be washed about 100 times. I am going to use up the rest of my Swiffer products and use the Reveal mop. (I bought it while it was on sale at Target.) I also found that Windex made some microfiber cloths that I believe can be used with my Swiffer sweeper instead of the more expensive dry floor "cloths" that Swiffer makes. Just wanted to pass this along in case you hadn't seen the Reveal mop." Thanks for the email, Donna! I hope other readers who have in fact tried the Reveal mop (I haven't) will give us their opinions too. E-mail me at christina@happyslob.com if you have an opinion on this product to share! I love the idea that you can easily refill with your own homemade cleaning solutions - cheaper, easier for your health and the planet's. Guess what I'd recommend to fill the cleaning chamber with? Vinegar water of course! Add a squirt of natural dishwashing liquid if you like.

Oh right...and here's a link to the Reveal mop to check it out for yourself:

I own this and it is great!!! It's actually fun to clean the floors which I do now almost daily! Water and vinegar make a perfect and cheap cleaner!

Can I buy one of these from the outlet here in Australia?I always feel frustrated to use my current mop that hard to clean.

Rubbermaid makes great products, but is this one really better then what is already out there?

These mops are pretty cool that have the fluid dispenser built right in. Very convenient to use - we have one we use for the bathroom floor.

Just make sure whatever chemicals you use in the cleaning solution won't damage your floor.

I love the idea of using a real mop and not a stick with a throw-away item to purchase and then discard. When my mop gives out . . I will certainly consider this product. I am always looking for ways to save money and the environment.

I have one of these and I actually modified the old swiffer ones so I could still use my own cleaning solution. I do not like to waste that much. I do have a swiffer duster thing but only use it the odd time. Whenever I buy I like to use coupons (like I said, I don't like to waste :P) So far the best site I have found is this one, they have like 6 swiffer coupons for December

I crochet mop covers for mine. They work great and can be washed.
