Mop with Microfiber

Go Ergo

Not convinced by last page's sponge argument? If you insist on standing as you clean your floors, there's no need to be uncomfortable doing it. There are plenty of ergonomic mops that will reduce the strain on your back, arms and wrists.

Microfiber mops are the newest "it" tool in the deeply exciting world of floor-scrubbing. But all joking aside, these things are lifesavers. They'll clean (and do a great job) on just about any surface and with any kind of cleaning solution. And when you're done with the floor, you can skip the dreaded mop-rinsing step -- just throw the mop head into the washer, and that's it!
