Microfiber Mops

If you have hard flooring - microfiber mops can be a real time-saver. Most of the houses I have lived in have had wall to wall carpeting - but the last two had hardwood and laminate flooring. Although I love the clean uncluttered look of hard flooring, it's a bit more of a challenge to keep looking nice - especially laminate.

The Norwex mops are ergonomically designed to reduce back strain, and have two changeable pads - one for dry dusting and one for damp mopping. I love the mop handle, and the damp mop pad. It handles hardwood, laminate, tile and sheet flooring with just a little warm water. I find I have much less streaking on the laminate flooring too - I used to hate that! The secret to success seems to be that

a. microfiber mops use very little water, and
b. they don't leave any chemical residue behind

It did take a little practice to get the hang of the mop handle 'figure eight motion', but once you do - it is a lot easier on the back and shoulders than either a rag mop or a sponge mop. The dry dusting mop works OK, but I have a dog who REALLY sheds - and I find I have to use the vacuum cleaner to keep on top of it. I can see that I would get more us out of my dry mop if we had less pet hair. It's not that the dry mop doesn't pick up the pet hair - it does, but there is so much of it that I have to stop and clean it out more often than I would like to.

(When I mean the dog really sheds - I mean she needs to be brushed daily, and I am still chasing hair balls across the floors every couple of days - and yes - we have been to see our vet!)
