If you have ever used a mop in your life, you probably already know how cumbersome it can be. Its hard to get water out of traditional mops, let alone clean their heads. Most of them retain water and stink. Worst of all, they don’t even get the job done, leaving dirt trails and spots.
This is why microfiber mops are probably the best thing to have been invented since slice bread when it comes to cleaning. Microfiber is a wonderful, highly advanced fiber that is made up of microscopic threads. These threads are usually several times thinner than a human hair, lending the fiber tremendous capacity to absorb liquids. Moreover, dirt and dust tends to get trapped inside the criss-cross pattern made by the threads, making them wonderful tools for cleaning the house.
Unlike traditional mops that require a bucket full of water (which can get terribly dirty within minutes), a microfiber mop can clean your whole house with just one wash. All you need is to get it wet once, and then let the mop do the hard work. You don’t need to stop periodically and squeeze the dirty water out of the mop either – its capacity to absorb is so tremendous that can clean your whole house without you having to squeeze it even once.
Best of all, microfiber is extremely easy to use. You don’t eve need detergent or soap to clean it – just rinse it with clean water and your mop will be as good as new. This way, you can not only save a lot of time, but also cut down on your yearly expenditure on cleaning supplies.
Most manufacturers sell a variety of shapes designed for different purposes. Rectangular shapes are great if you want to clean the dirt from corners, while rounded shapes are better for cleaning underneath sofas, beds, etc. A few manufacturers also sell microfiber mops with advanced swivel mechanisms that cut down on the effort further by removing the need to bend or kneel while mopping the floor.
