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.

Vileda Easy Wring & Clean Spin MopThe 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 here. Definitely give it a go if you are tired of floors that take forever to dry!
