Anyone use mop sheets like swiffer or clorox

always1stepbehind

We have two small tile areas here at work, bathroom and small lobby area. I was thinking maybe those disposable mop sheets would work instead of a regular mop. I started cleaning our office for extra money years ago when our maintence guy moved away. We have a kitchen area in our office and we've or I've always used that sink to dump the mop water, rinse and wring mop...but recently thought if this was my home, would I be dumping my mop water in my kitchen sink?? Especially after mopping the bathroom...UMMM NO!! The bathroom sink is a standard stink so it's too small to use for mop rinsing etc. Even though I clean the out little kithcen area last, that is kinda gross.


So any thoughts or reviews on the disposable mop sheets??

You can empty a mop bucket into a toilet, just don't pour too fast.

Sorry for this comment, but this is the place that hasn't given you a raise in years and years and so you double as the janitorial crew to supplement your income? What a complicated situation.

The swifter wet sheets that I use are fine for a quick touch up cleaning. They really don’t take the place of a thorough mopping.

I used to use the swifter wet sheets years ago, but noticed that they left a film on my vinyl tile in the bathroom. I have thought about giving the new Wet Jet another go, but not sure if I want to spend the money on something I'll not use after awhile.

I agree with Elmer about using the toilet as that is what I do then give the toilet a good clean. I tried the sheets several years ago and perhaps they have improved but I used too many. I do have a spray mop that uses washable pads that I like better but you do need to have several pads. I use the first for a quick dampening and wash. Depending on how dirty the floor is will depend if I use more. You do have to rinse between wipes if you are doing a larger area.

Could you get the management to invest in a steam mop?

I use the swifter wet jet. I have 3 bathrooms. 2 with tile and one with vinyl floors(I think) I use them and like them. I also use it on my kitchen and the small areas of tile in front of my doors. I just don't think a regular mop gets a floor clean. You're just dunking the mop in dirty water and spreading it around. My master bath floor is mostly white and it works great. Not to mention is it faster and less hassle than a regular mop.

I do think the wet jet is better than the swifter wet mop, but I can't explain why. They are probably comparable as far as performance.

When I did mop with a regular mop, I would dump the water outside. Same with the tank on my rug doctor.

I recently bought this one by Rubbermaid. It has washable microfiber pads. You can use your own cleaner in the bottle. I use water and cleaning strength vinegar in it. I got extremely lucky. I got it at Lowes, they had them on clearance. I paid under $3 for it! I ordered more pads from Amazon. I have been happy with it. It is for use in the bathroom on the tile floor. I like to use it daily in the bathrooms. My cleaning ladies come every other week. They have their own tools but they really liked it.

I have some bar mops and various rags that I wet, sometimes spritz with 409 or the like, and put that on the Swiffer instead of their cloths. They do a great job, and since I have a bunch of them I put them all in a hamper and wash them in hot with oxy when I run out. No slime left behind (also my complaint with the Swiffer cloths)

I agree, just dump the water down the toilet. If you pour it quickly, the water will all flush out. Not a big deal, just flush and the water will fill back up.

I also have a mop with washable microfiber pads that stick with Velcro. I did buy a Swiffer because it was lighter and easier to use, but I ended up not using it much because the microfiber does a better job.
