a clean sweep,
This review is from: Leifheit Picobello Micro Fibre Mop (Misc.)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is handy, lightweight mop (1lb 10oz) that's easy to store and easy to use. The squeeze mechanism is straightforward; push firmly down on the green handle that surrounds the pole and the mop-head folds tightly in half to press out excess water, however, that's also part of the downside; as the mop surface is folded against itself, whilst the excess water is press out, the dirt particles (not thoughtful enough to have arranged themselves around the edge of the head) get. . . pressed even more firmly into place!
This in itself is not too much of a biggie as the mop-head, which is held in place by a foam and felt backing, is itself held in place by Velcro strips attached to the plastic part of the head, therefore, it's securely kept in place when in use but it's also relatively easy enough to peel off and wash under a running tap. Then, when its dry, simply reattach.
I have mainly wooden flooring in my home and, as the product description states, it's best not to use lots of water when washing wood floors so I tend only to use this at a wetness level of slightly more than damp and so far the results have been very satisfactory.
Oh, and as for the mini-'brush' on the reverse side, it's a bit of a waste of time really, at least that's what I found, if I do happen to find any stubborn marks it's much easier just to use one the of the gentler styled foam-backed scouring pads to lightly remove the mark. Other than that, it gets a thumbs' up.
