I have a steam mop and I love it, but sometimes I just want a quick and easy mop to clean up a small spill or area without having to retrieve my steam mop from the basement, fill it, and plug it in. That’s when the new and improved Rubbermaid Reveal™ Spray Mop comes in handy.
What I like about it is that I can fill it with my choice of floor cleaner and have it ready and waiting for any emergency because it’s small enough to fit between the wall and the refrigerator. Plus unlike many other mops of its kind, it doesn’t add to the landfill with disposable pads or used batteries. That’s because it uses a microfiber pad that can be washed up to 100 times and a spray trigger you control and operate.
Choosing my own cleaner and the reusable pad make this my go-to kitchen mop. I choose to use organic or natural cleaning products so I can mix two teaspoons of my favorite cleaner with a full bottle of water in this one. The spray trigger delivers a dose of the cleaning mix to the floor and my elbow grease and the scrubbing pad take care of tough spots.
While it’s safe to use on all floor types including vinyl, tile, laminate, and hardwood, I do feel it leaves my floor a little too wet so I dry it afterwards (as I do with my steam mop). We have a laminate floor and moisture in the joints causes them to swell. I’m avoiding the possibility by drying it (I use two hand towels and surf the floor – besides being fun, it’s a tiny bit of exercise too).
My only complaint about this sturdy little kitchen helper is that the spray nozzle is very high up so the stream goes about 8-10” from the mop head and hits walls and furniture. Remembering to spray further back helps as does pointing the head down towards the floor before spraying.
