    I know I know I should not brag. There are probably oddles of women coveting one of these. LOL I have a nice mop to go with it also. You know, a regular mop with a removable type mop head.

    I am a big girl at nearly 50 and decided that my days of training mops with the strings sewn together were over. And Those lightweight foam strips never more to be seen. Foam blocks with brillo strips, are you kidding me?

    I have a house with no carpeting, hardwoods upstairs, and tile in basement. And now the floors are CLEAN. The time I save using a real mop is great and I can see the difference. The walk in shower stall in the basement bath is now a mop basin. :D I can fill and empty in their with little mess then rinse the bucket and stall with the shower head/hose.

    Actually I was doing a lot of my mopping work with a small towel and a bucket. It was getting old. Now I just to the corners and baseboards that way.

    I have a mint hardwood floor cleaner that cleans my hardwood floors for me. I love it!

    Update: trouble in mop paradise.

    We had a metal building put up and I moved the mowers and tiller and tools over there and now we can get cars in the garage. Well, DH the OCD meister, immediately had to mop his garage. He used my brand new mop head. I had to make a trip to sam's to by more mop heads. I hung his on a shelf and instructed him on how to replace then as needed. I worked way to hard to get the messy gluey and caulky, and oily, and chalky residues and bumps and other things off that large tile floor that was not properly cleaned and sealed when they installed it. I refuse to take a change of mopping with a mop head that has mopped where the cars park.

    There is a French door at the end of the basement and in the afternoon and evenings the sun shines such that even a cat hair casts a shadow a couple feet long.

    I know I'm awful for it but I couldn't help but giggle at this tale. The exact same thing has happened to me and I was livid. In retrospect though, it was hilarious!

    Actually what happened is that I moved the large mower over then he moved everything else. It was all piled on the cement slab in front of the new building when I came home that day. I looked like someone had been kicked out and all the stuff was in the lawn. lol

    I am glad I don't have many neighbors
