Did you know that our spin mops aren’t just for floors? You can use them for:
Tiled bathroom walls
Blinds (dry for simple dusting)
High cabinet doors
Tops of appliances like refrigerators
Here are some other tips & tricks for René Mopping:
Our spin mops usually have a locking mechanism on the handle. It should be UNLOCKED for spinning/rinsing and LOCKED while mopping the floor.
For a quicker, more thorough mopping, remove all rugs, trash cans, chairs, and other small furniture out of the room to clear your work space.
Angle the mop at about 45 degrees for general mopping.
When spinning or rinsing in the bucket (and when changing mop heads sometimes), you have to keep the mop straight up and down at a 90 degree angle to the floor. If yours isn’t spinning correctly, make sure: 1. that the handle is UNLOCKED and2. that you have it standing straight up and not at an angle.
ALWAYS sweep or vacuum before you mop. If you have a lot of dust/hair that the broom or vacuum misses, use your microfiber mop heads DRY as a dust mop to pick all that loose debris up before you wet mop. Just rinse it out before mopping.
Wood floors, unless completely sealed, do not like water. Spin the heck out of that mop before cleaning hardwood floors.
For spin mops with round heads, work in a figure 8 pattern to make the most of the scrubbing power by using all the surfaces of the mop head.
Start mopping in the far corner of your room and mop toward the door.
If you have trouble lifting a full bucket, or you have a sink that’s too shallow for filling the bucket, try this hack. Use a pool noodle as a makeshift hose. Put one end on your faucet and the other in your bucket. You may have to hold it in place while filling, but this will keep you from having to lift a full bucket twice.
If you don’t want to change the water between rooms, mop the kitchen first, then other hard floor areas, and the bathroom last. This will keep bathroom germs contained to the bathroom only.
Rinse the mop head frequently during mopping, and change the rinse water as soon as it looks murky or brown. This will prevent redistributing dirt on your clean floors.
