About the O’Cedar ProMist Microfiber Spray Mop
“The newest thing in next-level clean is here! With Microfiber Scrub Zones to help get the tough spots and one-touch bottle release for easy fluid replacement, a clean floor never looked so good.”
With most of the upstairs living area in our home being wood floors and two busy kids occupying it, you can safely say that I spend a lot of time trying to keep them clean. I purchased a floor steamer a few months ago, which required replacing the pads after every use. Once I used up the entire box of disposable floor pads and went to the store to purchase more, I could not bring myself to spend that much on more. I regretted not doing more research prior to purchasing this floor steamer because the cost of the disposable floor pads and the amount of cleaning I was doing was becoming quite costly. Unable to find anything that was reasonably priced at my local stores, I was left mopping floors the old way. I was delighted when I discovered that O’Cedar has recently come out with an amazing microfiber spray mop!
What I love most about this mop is the eco-friendly microfiber pad that is machine washable up to 100x washes.I just love how easy it is to move the mop across the floor, unlike the disposable ones it will not get bunched up after cleaning a few rooms. It is so easy to clean up my cat’s hair next to her cat tree that looks like a real tree. I was so surprised by how much dirt it picked up, it really did exceed my expectations. I was not expecting it to clean up half of what it did, such as the snacks and drinks the kids spilled on the dining room floors. I hardly had to apply any pressure, which was even more surprising for me! I had been using a steam mop for so long, I just assumed that the only way to get up those pesty stains on the floor is if they were steamed out. I am so incredibly impressed with what little effort and elbow work that went into making my floors shiny again, and this is coming from a very pregnant nine month lady!
As if this mop could not be any more amazing, it also includes a refillable bottle which allows you to use your own cleaning product. The directions strongly suggest that you never use more than 2tsp of your favorite cleaning product… that is just unbelievable! The amount of money I am saving by using this mop is simply incredible, not to mention how great my floors look. I also prefer this one much more than the steam mop because of the fact that I don’t have to wait until the kids are asleep or occupied when I mop… the steam mop made me so nervous when the kids were around!
This image below is what the pad looked like after cleaning my entire upstairs, which really needed a good cleaning! That includes my kitchen, dining room, eat in kitchen (which has been turned into the kid’s craft area), two walk ways AND two bathrooms! Can you believe that I was able to do all of that cleaning in that many areas only using half of the water in the dispenser and not having to replace the pad? Using the steam mop would have required that I used about three or four of the disposable mop pads.
I used the kid’s craft area as my before and after, as this was an area covered in paint from the easel and it really needed to be cleaned. I was not expecting the mop to clean up any of the paint and was quite shocked to see it all come up when only applying a small amount of pressure to the problem areas! Plus it left the floors looking extra shiny and clean. Overall I am very satisfied with this mop for tile floors and highly recommend it if you are looking to save money on keeping your floors clean. After using this mop I could never again go back to anything else, the pros, benefits and money saved are simply amazing!
