The Cleaning Tip Cinderella Didn’t Even Know: Floors

May 17, 2016

Let’s face it – we all hate cleaning the floors. But what if we were to tell you that the days of despising floor cleaning are over? You’re laughing. We get it. You’re picturing buckets, and wringing out mops and, well….Cinderella.

Before you go throwing that glass slipper at us, we’re about to blow your mind: e-cloth cleans floors quickly and easily using just water! e-cloth’s Deep Clean Mop has a wide base on a 360 degrees swivel and a telescoping handle. The longer fibers on the Deep Clean Mop Head are designed to get into corners and into grooves on the floor and pick up all dirt, grease, grime and over 99% of bacteria using just water.

We’ll let Romina at Just Another Hat tell you more!

Chemical-free e-cloth Deep Clean Mop

A while back, my steam mop broke. I headed straight to Google to find reviews for other steam mops and eco-friendly floor cleaners. I came upon e-cloth and was intrigued. According to the website, all I needed to clean my floor was the mop and water. It can’t get any more eco-friendly than that.

I received the e-cloth Deep Clean Mop to try and it has made mopping so quick and effortless. The Deep Clean Mop is as easy to use as it is to put together. Simply attach the handle to the mop head and wait for them to click together. The handle telescopes out with a simple twist.

The reusable microfiber cloth attaches to the mop head with very strong velcro. The cloth has never separated from the mop head during use, even with strongly applied pressure. Prior to my green lifestyle, I’ve used quick mop systems very similar to the Deep Clean Mop. I attach the cleanser soaked sheet to the mop head and dispose once used. In retrospect, I can’t imagine how many of those sheets I threw away, not to mention just what kind of chemicals were used.

The picture below is a before and after picture. The top picture is of the clean microfiber cloth, never before used. The middle picture is what it looked like after I used it on my kitchen floor. You can see just how dirty my floor was. The bottom picture is what the cloth looked like after I hand washed it in water. The dirt came out easily. Today, my cloth isn’t as clean as it was when it was brand new, even after being washed in the washing machine. It definitely looks like it’s been used.

There are many features about this mop that I have to highlight. The mop head is so thin that it can glide underneath the washer and dryer. It’s also narrow enough to reach spaces that other sponge mops and steam mops I’ve owned can’t get to and clean. My floor dries after using this mop; I don’t even have to wait five minutes to walk on a recently cleaned surface. I love that it cleans with just water.

Does it really work? Yes, the Deep Clean Mop really works. As you can see, the Deep Clean Mop handles surface messes and soils very well. My grout was still left grungy, but I wasn’t expecting a miracle. For quick perfunctory jobs, the e-cloth Deep Clean Mop is my go-to mop. Hubby surprised me with a new steam mop and I actually haven’t used it since I got this.

There are a few things I would like to note. In my experience, the microfiber cloth does not release food stuck to the floor. For those cases, I’ve just used my fingernails to unstick small pieces of sticky stuff from the floor and then continued to mop. Since the mop is so lightweight, I feel like I have to apply pressure to get some soils out. After a few passes, the marks are gone. I usually do two rounds of cleaning per section; I clean, rinse the microfiber cloth, and clean again. The floor looks clean after one round, but it is even cleaner after the second. Even with two rounds, the whole process takes less than 10 minutes.

The e-cloth Deep Clean Mop is something that I truly would recommend to those who hate to mop. It’s not my favorite chore, but it has to get done. This mop is so easy to use, it makes mopping more tolerable. If you do decide to buy it, I suggest getting a second microfiber cloth. The cloth is very durable and I can see it lasting a long time. However, just imagine this scenario: you just finished mopping and tossed the cloth in the laundry. You then hear someone call your name because there was a spill in the kitchen. Yeah, the second cloth will come in handy.
