Vileda Easy Wring and Clean Spin Mop: Road Test

Not being the strongest person, I can never seem to wring out a mop quite well enough, so I was intrigued to find out about the Vileda Easy Wring and Clean Spin Mop.

It can sometimes take up to an hour for mopped floors to dry, no matter how many times I squeeze the mop, particularly on tiles in the middle of winter! Anything that will make the process of mopping easier and means we can walk on our floors sooner sounds like a bonus to me.

The Vileda Easy Wring and Clean Spin Mop has a very handy self-wringing mechanism that spins the mop head around in a cage as you gently press on the foot pedal. Press the pedal once, twice or three times for various levels of moisture wringing. What a nifty idea!

Better yet, there is no splash back when the mop is spun around and the handle grip remains stable in your hand as the pole rotates. So no, the pole doesn’t spin around 1,000 times in your hand and give you blisters. It is actually quite a fun process!

Check out the video here for more on how it works:

The machine washable mop head itself is microfibre, so it picks up all the usual dirt and grime as I have come to expect from quality Vileda mops. It also has a clever triangular shaped head so it cleans better in corners.

The added benefit that I didn’t expect is that the mop stays cleaner as the dirty water that normally dries on the mop is much easier to spin away and dispose of along with the water from the bucket.

This was definitely a mop I enjoyed using and my floors dried so quickly, even on a cold day! I really liked having control over the moisture in the mop head, sometimes I preferred it a bit wetter when tackling the grimier spots, but would then rinse and spin a few times before going over that spot to dry it a little.

The Vileda Easy Wring and Clean Spin Mop is currently available as a mop and bucket set exclusively at the Vileda Australia eBay store here. Definitely give it a go if you are tired of floors that take forever to dry!

We’ve had this Vileda mop and bucket system for about 16 months and it worked well and satisfactorily. Until this week when the spin mechanism has seized. We tried adding oil to the moving metal parts but it has not really helped. It is a daunting task to get to the inside of this mechanism without destroying it. Is the device intended to work only for one and a half year? If so, it is exorbitantly expensive. Any ideas?

Have bought and used Easy Wring and Clean Mop. It says the mophead can be machinewashed. However there is a heavy plastic collar holding mop together. How would this fare on the spin cycle?

Hi Kerrie

Thanks for your question. This product has been tested for that purpose. We recommend you only wash together with other cleaning cloths and not with your good clothes. Machine wash in a normal 60 degrees centigrade cycle.

Kind regards, the team at HelpMeClean

Is it okay to clean the grimy bucket in the dishwasher?

Hi Sash – the bucket has not been tested for use in dishwashers and the metal handle might discolour, so we would not recommend it.

I purchased a Vileda Easy Wring and Clean mop and found it easy to operate. My problem is that there is no way that I can remove the mop head. I rang the customer service line and the lovely lady said that if you put the mop on the floor and put your feet on the mop, one on each side of the head, and then pull up, it should work. I tried this, but no way would it move. If I have to replace the mop head, it will mean I will have to destroy the current one to get it off. Are there any other ideas? Why aren’t there instructions in the box?

Our tile floor is like a dirt magnet. We have tried the floor mate, all kinds of cleaners and mops and the floor still always looked dirty. I ended up scrubbing part of the floor with Comet and a sponge and that’s just way to hard to do regularly, so I bought the roller mop since I’ve had really good luck with the magic eraser sponges and I quickly found that the even with just plain water, our floor was FINALLY clean. I haven’t had any problems with the mop falling apart, though I do wish the mop head lasted longer (using it with Comet really chewed it up).

My experience mcmiis the previous poster whose mop head constantly fell out. I just purchased the mop and have tried to use it twice. I had to reinsert the mop head over 10 times this last attempt and I have a very small floor surface. This mop is not worth your frustration or money. Stay away but please let me know if you find a good mop. This is the second mop I have purchased this week that is worthless.

Can someone tell me where I can find an elerictc mop ?We have ceramic tile in our family room, dining area, hallways, and in the kitchen. It’s a beautiful home. All of the bedrooms are carpeted though. It is HARD AND DIFFICULT to clean. It is a 3000+ sq house and it’s such a task .because I have 2 young kids and one is a toddler. No matter how hard I try, there’s always caked on bananas, tomatoes, etc. on the floor. My swiffer doesn’t get it off. Plain old mops doesn’t to the job either. Getting on my hands and knees and scraping and mopping the floor is tiring, especially as a mother, I have SO many other things to do. Is there ANYTHING that has brushes on it that I can push along the floor, while they circulate while spraying solution on the floor? I need an elerictc mop! Help! I am obsessive about the floor being clean. Is there such a thing as an elerictc mop that actually does a good job. I’ve searched a few and they all had bad reviews. Help!
