4. Cleanmaxx Mop and Bucket Set with Wringer

Buy the Cleanmaxx Mop and Bucket Set – £45

  • Suitable For – Laminated and parquet floor surfaces and most hard floors.

With the Cleanmaxx Mop and Bucket Set with Wringer, the long handle makes mopping less hard on your back as you don’t have to bend down as much. The mop head stores upright in its own slot in the bucket which allows it to efficiently dry as well as airing out that smelly mop smell.

Dipping the mop into the clean water, you’ll be squeezing this in the wringer which has been designed so the water drips down into the dirty water compartment. You’ll no longer be cleaning your floors with dirty water because of the separate compartments in the bucket.


Leifheit Clean Twist Disc Mop Set

3. Leifheit Clean Twist Disc Mop Set

Buy the Leifheit Clean Twist Disc - £45.00

  • Suitable For – All floor surfaces
  • Mop Size and Design

  • Replacement Heads Availability – Removable mop head that can be machine washed and extra heads are easily available.

Featuring a unique spin system, the Leifheit Clean Twist Disc Mop Set greatly reduces the effort and time required for floor mopping. Water is squeezed out of the mop by pumping the handle (release the lever first!) to make the mop spin in its wringer basket which also gets rid of a lot of dirt and germs hanging on inside the mop.

The mop handle has a flexible wiping joint allowing it to lay flat, great for getting under furniture and easy to swipe across the floor. A 20L bucket full of water is difficult to carry but with the wheels, you can push the bucket along instead.

Choosing the Best Mop and Bucket Set – 6 Top Tips

  • Choose according to your floor surfaces – not every floor surface is the same so choosing the best type of mop for your floor is important to prevent damaging your floor. Too much water on laminate and some hardwood floors can cause distortions and bubbling so an absorbent mop head or a bucket with a tough wringer is ideal. For tiled floors, you might want a mop with some scrubbing action to get into the grout.
  • Choose the ideal type of mop head – there are a variety of mop heads available from the old school rope mops to the modern flat microfibre cloth mop heads. Each mop head has a different absorbency power which is important for the above tip. The shape and size of the mop should be considered too because the bigger the mop, the more floor surface you will cover.
  • Consider a flexible mop handle – to reduce the amount of bending down you do when mopping, a mop handle with flexible joints will allow you to bend and twist the mop however you need it. This is ideal if you have back problems or just want to make floor mopping as easy and efficient as possible.
  • Choose the right bucket size – only get the capacity size you need otherwise you might end up trying to find somewhere to store a large bucket that you didn’t need. Think about how heavy it will be when it’s filled with water too so consider if you’ll be able to carry that.
  • Choose the ideal bucket type – Some buckets are designed with dual compartments to allow for dirty and clean water on each side which means you won’t have to refill for another mopping round with clean water. If you’re after a big bucket, then it may be wise to look for one with wheels for ease of portability.
  • Test the durability of the wringer – Give the wringer a good push with your hand to test its strength; if it bends easily, then it probably won’t last long.

Want to remove some of the manual work out of mopping? Then you should consider using a steam mop instead, which is faster and more efficient at cleaning.
