When you work nightshift, you find that there are not a lot of household chores that you can do quietly while the rest of the house sleeps on your nights off. And just because you can’t do them, doesn’t mean they just go away - there still there to do when you’re awake in daylight hours. A simple thing like mopping over the floors would involve filling up a bucket to drag around the house and a mop that wherever you leant it up, it would be sure to slide down the wall and clang on the floor - right. Well, not anymore!
I was lucky enough to test out the “Reveal Mop” by Rubbermaid. A very cool all-in-one system that eliminates the need for that bucket to be dragged around the house. Instead of the bucket, the “Reveal Mop” has a refillable bottle attached to it that you can add your favourite floor cleaner to. The spray trigger is conveniently placed on the handle so you can spray as much as you need.
With both tiles and floorboards in our home, I love that “Reveal Mop” is suitable for both - it’s also suitable for vinyl and laminate. Having five boys, a hubby and tiles in the bathroom (you know where I’m going with this), I can tell you that the “Reveal Mop” got a pretty good work out here. It was easy to manoeuvre around the toilet and got right up to the skirting boards thanks to the swivel head! And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, it does!
The “Reveal Mop” uses a washable microfiber pad so there’s no extra dollars wasted on buying replacement pads that you throw out after every time you mop. And it’s not a skimpy little pad either - it’s a nice wide one. Microfiber is fantastic as it can pick up “50% more dirt per swipe than traditional sponge mops”. If you want to see the mop in action, check out Rubbermaid’s video below.
The “Reveal Mop” is available at selected Bunnings stores and has a R.R.P. of $39.95
Now for the best bit. The lovely people at Rubbermaid would like one of my readers to have a mop of their own! To enter this giveaway, leave me a comment below telling me what favourite floor cleaning solution would you use in the “Reveal Mop’s” refillable bottle.
