I have a tiled area that I sometimes mop with a basic long handled mop (the type with a bundle of thick loose cords/strings and nothing else, but similar problems exist with the sponge head mops that you can squeeze out with a mechanism on the mop head). The mop basically doesn’t clean! I always end up getting down on hands and knees with a cloth and rubbing off stains. The basic mop doesn’t allow the ‘pressure’ or elbow grease that stains need and the sponge mop is slightly better makes me work even harder (applying force at the end of the stick) rather than scrubbing closer to the spot. Does anyone else find mopping floors actually works? If so what is the secret?!
