Top 3 Sponge Mops


Sponge mops are very popular because they are so easy to use.  Sponge mops generally come with a self wrining mechanism and replaceable mop heads.  Sponge mops can be great for mopping edges and corners.  These are three of our favorite sponge mops.

The Oxo Good Grips Roller mop has a very long handle, meaning even tall moppers, will not have to stoop while mopping.  The roller bar lever is located in the middle of the mop handle, which is convenient when it's time to rinse and squeeze out the mop.  The power strips and sponge do a great jobe on all floor including hardwood and tile.  This is a very sturdy, well-made mop.  Be sure that you install the sponge mop head correctly or the mop head will slide off during use.

Libman's Nitty Gritty Roller Mop is a great tool, especially for really dirty floors.  With it's added scrub brush, no mess stands a chance against it.  The roller mechanism is controlled by a lever on the handle, and allows you to squeeze as little or as much water out of your spong mop.  The mechanism on the handle also provides an easy method to switch out your mop head without getting messy.

Although this mop doesn't have a built-in scrubber, it does a great job at actually picking up dirt from the floor.  The mop is easy to use and has a very sturdy construction.  This mop holds a lot of water, so be careful on hardwood floors. Refills may be a little more difficult to find, but the mop heads are nicely made, and last a long time.
