Vileda 1-2 Spray And Clean Mop Review
This is going to sound a little strange, but hear me out: I love the new Vileda 1-2 Spray & Clean mop. Now, I know what you’re thinking. A mop is a mop, is a mop, what’s there to love? Well. Plenty.
We moved house recently, and before the van arrived at the house, I did, with new mop, cleaning liquid and toddler in tow. I took my new and as yet unused mop, clicked all the bits in place, and set about the business of cleaning before my furniture arrived.
The mop doesn’t require water, and it doesn’t require a bucket filled with water and sloshing bits around as you try to move it around the room. I know, a winner already, right?
The Vileda mop comes with a small supply of Vileda cleaner, which you can pour into the handle of the mop, and then you pull a trigger, sort of like a bicycle brake, which sprays the cleaning fluid onto the floor where you’re about to mop.
The mop bit is made of cotton, and is easily run over the floor – it is a flat mop with a swivel connection so you can clean under tables, sofas and raised kitchen counters (mine are about 10 inches off the floor for some bizarre reason) without having to get down on your hands and knees to clean.
And then, once you’ve finished, you pop it off, and into the washing machine ready to face all those toddler spills again tomorrow.
I never thought I’d be the kind of person to get excited about anything domestic, but I must say, this little bit of genius thrills me. Especially since you don’t have to use any particular brand of cleaning fluid, so if you wanted to go for a more eco-friendly alternative, or use a home-made solution, you’d be able to do so.
I managed to clean all our hardwood surfaces in less than ten minutes, with a child on my hip. Using this Vileda 1-2 Spray & Clean mop is so easy, even my daughter – in the picture – can do it.
Vileda 1-2 Spray & Clean mop is available from Sainsbury's, although they don't seem to have it online yet and you can also find a list of suppliers on the Vileda website.
