DIY Bank Holiday? Cleaning up with Oxo Good Grips
Are you planning any DIY this Bank Holiday weekend? We’ve been living in a building site for three months and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cleaned up after the builder, the plasterer, the electrician and the joiner. It’s not quite over yet, but the dirtier work has now finished and it gvve me the opportunity to try out the OXO Good Grips Double Sided Flip Mop
Whether you need to dust hardwood, scrub a sticky stain on tile, or
anything in between, the OXO Good Grips Double Sided Flip Mop is all
you’ll need to make your floor shine. The Mop features two surfaces:
soft, absorbent microfibre on one side and foamed scrubbing surface on
the other. The Microfibre side is perfect for dry dusting or quick
mopping on many different surfaces, and the scrubbing side is great for
tough stains or sticky messes. The large, flat sponge head covers a
large surface with every swipe and it’s easy to alternate sides with a
flip of the lightweight, aluminium Mop handle. With a push of the
comfortable handle, the rollers squeeze out the entire sponge, and when
in the closed position, create a stand to keep the Mop upright with the
sponge off the floor. Sponge heads are securely attached with Velcro and
are interchangeable and replaceable.
The Double Sided Flip Mop works really well with the OXO Good Grips Angled Measuring Bucket You can fill, measure and pour with ease with the OXO Good Grips Angled
Measuring Bucket. The patented top-view angled surface measures gallons
and quarts, eliminating guesswork when filling. Built-in measurements on
the bottom of the bucket provide added convenience when measuring
smaller amounts of detergent. The large opening accommodates all
household mops and the wide spouts allow for controlled pouring. The
soft, non-slip handle absorbs pressure from your hand, making it easier
to carry and pour when the Bucket is full. The Mop Holder on the bucket
handle securely holds your mop upright in storage or when moving from
room to room while mopping.
I found the Double-sided Flip Mop easy to use and easy to flip between the soft microfibre side and the gentle scrubbing side when coming upon a stubborn stain.
Squeezing out the mop was also straight-forward, I found it best to move the rollers over the sponges slowly to remove as much water as possible, particularly for a wooden floor where you don’t want a lot of water left on the surface. All in all it was a very successful mop which worked well on the wooden floor and also on the vinyl in the bathroom. I really liked the way the heads are fitted with velcro which means you can easily remove them to clean them properly and replace them if they wear out.
As with all OXO Good Grips products the quality of both the mop and the bucket is very high. They are well finished and feel substantial and comfortable to use. So if you are planning any DIY or Spring Cleaning, then I can highly recommend this mop and bucket. I also love my OXO Good Grips Extending Duster which you can read about in this blog post: Can I do you now, Sir?
