Just for the heck of it I started this thread because my wife and I argue about Mops when its time to clean. I like the old cotton string mops but she WILL NOT let me use it and so I use her sponge mop. Which one do ya'll prefer?

Cotton mops are only good if you have a bucket and squeege to go with it. Without that, sponge mops are superior.

My God this is an awesome thread.

my wife uses swiffers to sweep and mop. i do such a lousy job she woul never ask me to do it;) on the other hand she usually sets trash on the front porch as a hint for me to haul it out:D

I clean the floors with an orbital sander with a scotch brite stuck to it. Makes the grout sparkly!!

Indoors I take a sponge over a cotton mop, but the Swifter is KING inside!!
In the garage I like a cotton mop, seems to take abues better and will clean up oil a lot better.

Not that I knw anything about these things:/:

I use the swiffer. We get a TON of dust here because we live right next to a busy street. I can swiffer, then swiffer again 4 hours later and it'll be dirty!

I saw this on the prime time news one evening. If you have pets, dont use the stuff.

Every other week a woman comes and cleans our house and mops our floor for $55. I am not certain we own a mop. I used to be a janitor a long time ago and for large floors you can't beat the old fashioned rag mops. Like Butch says, without a bucket and a ringer, they are a pain.

The last time I mopped a floor I was 20 years old and doing court ordered community service at the Alano club. 34 years ago.
