The Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop is the little domestic miracle that got my kids fighting over who gets to mop the floor. I am not kidding. They fetch the mop from the closet, then take turns mopping the floors in the kitchen and bathrooms. I insist on doing the hardwood floors myself because I just love looking at the happy gleam of the just-cleaned wood. Oh the joy of little things!
But let's step away from my domestic poetry for a minute so I can tell you just what makes the Reveal mop so wonderful. First, it comes with a bottle that you can fill with any solution you like - even plain water. I got the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop Kit that includes 2 bottles, so I have the tile solution in one and the hardwood solution in the other. I marked a W on it (as in wood, you know), and when done with one type of flooring, I replace the bottle and the pad and just keep on mopping. The kit comes with three pads - when one gets dirty, I just get another it and keep cleaning like a pro. Speaking of the pad - it's a washable, reusable microfiber cleaning pad that works perfectly on any type of moppable (yes, now it's a word) surface in my house. It's thick, it's red, and attaches securely to the head of the mop. The pads are sturdy and durable, and can take up to 100 washes. No need for batteries or electricity - it's all very green in a stylish red.
I can control the amount of cleaning solution sprayed on the floor thanks to a comfy trigger that dispenses the liquid from the bottle. I must say that a little solution goes a long way, and this is one of the reasons I keep the two bottles with floor-specific cleaners always ready to go. Speaking of cleaning solutions, all you need is 2 tablespoons of your preferred cleaner per bottle, the rest is plain ol' water.
The head of the mop is wide and low - covers a lot of surface and can even mop under my doors. No more maneuvering in the tight confines of my powder room to make sure every little corner has been mopped. Now I just slide the mop under the open door to get to the area behind it. A neat little trick in my book.
Rubbermaid has thought of every little detail when they designed the Reveal Spray Mop. The bottles can stand upright and close with no dripping. The handle has a spongy thing where your hand will be gripping it - the hand that is not pulling the spray trigger, that is. The quality of the mop and its accessories is excellent. It's perfect, right down to the colors - gray and red - and I would not change a single thing. I love it, my floors love it, and the kids take on mopping willingly! Feel free to insert wicked mommy laugh here. Yes, we all do chores around the house. Vive la mop!
One very lucky reader will win the same amazing Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop kit that I received! It includes a mop, two bottles, three pads, and a map to happy mopping (just kidding about the map, you don't need one once you have the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop). All that has a retail value of $45.
