i have wasted HOURS trying to find the right thing!
i love my microfiber mop but wringing it has caused my hands to feel like a 90-year-old woman that spent every HOUR of her 90 years trying to get the lid off a tricky jar of pickles. every HOUR of her 90 years... and she NEVER got a pickle!! 90 years!!! that is 768,960 hours. i'm just thinking... those hands would HURT!
anyhoo, i was looking for a shop wringer.... those are PRICEY!! THE cheapest one was $60 and i had to order it. that means it's hard to return and the wait TO be disappointed would only compound my disappointment. see my dilemma?
i have purchsed and returned 2 wringer buckets. side press and roller- wringer.
ultimately, i found that laying a towel on the counter... laying the mop pad on that and running over it with my rolling pin worked VERY nicely! i thought my search was over.... until i saw this... http://www.ocedar.com/ultramax.asp
at the store. WOW. it was only $16 for the whole system. the mop-bucket has a wringer that works with this microfiber mop. the head collapses and you tuck it in... squish it... and it's dry enough to do pergo.
the only downside...?
i mopped about 36 hours ago. the floors still look GREAT... and the hubby would get nervous if i broke it out right now and did it all over again! :)
i mopped every hard surface in my house (i think that's about 2000 sf) in NO TIME. the floors were dry in no time! dare i say it? $16 worth of mop-love!!! i bought it at walmart... and still can't believe it.
