Recently, my heavy duty mop finally fell apart. Now this mop was great.
Once my bathroom floor flooded completely and I was able to mop up about an
inch of water.
Well, now I've gone to replace it, and I couldn't find an old fashioned
heavy duty mop. I'm not sure what to call it. I call it "the poop deck
mop" hehe. I'm sure you know what I mean.
Anyway, this new mop had the strings about the pole. I can't figure how to
use the thing. Everytime I go to wring the water out, the top end comes
lose, and its a no-win situation. I've had to resort to paper towels to
So, my question is: I'd like to replace my old fashtioned heavy-duty mop.
But, most stores these days seem to stock mostly this new "advanced" version
with the strings wrapped around a pole that supposed to wring out by
twisting it (yeah right) or the sponge mop version.
Does a sponge mop do a good job, or would I be better off looking for the
old fashioned mop I'm talking about. Where can you find them now? Do
hardware stores stock them? The only ones I've found so far, the cotton end
is separate from the pole end. Well, my mop is already broken, and I'm
already disillusioned with this screw on variety. Basically, I find that my
old mop held a lot of water and was easier to wring out manually, than this
new fangled version that's supposed to wring water out.
Anyway, thanks for any advice on where to find a good old fashioned mop.
