Libman Freedom Spray Mop



I have fallen in love... with a mop.

I received a Libman Freedom Spray Mop recently and have been using it almost every single day. This mop is amazing. With 6 young children who are running through the house all day long, my floors need frequent TLC. And I can't sleep when my house is a mess. It's a bad combination.

Up until now, I've always used a traditional mop and bucket to clean my floors. I don't like to use harsh chemical cleaners and I don't like the idea of using disposable products in my home. A reusable mop and bucket of water and vinegar (or a "green" cleaner) has always worked for me, although it is a bit more work than some other types of mops. Because of the time it takes to fill the bucket and the little curious hands that often find their way into my bucket, I've been guilty of not mopping as often as I should and instead settling for running the vacuum and wiping spots with a rag by hand. Yes, I am that crazy.

Now that I have started using the Libman Freedom Spray Mop, I'm mopping more often and spending far less time doing it. I am not ashamed to admit that I have fallen in love with this mop. Let me tell you why...

The Libman Freedom Spray Mop is unique because it lets you use whatever type of cleaning solution you want to use and it sprays it right where it needs to be-on your floor. You love good old-fashioned water & vinegar on your floors? No problem. You want to use a certain type of cleaner? No problem. You just want to use plain water? No problem. You want to use more than one type of cleaner for different types of floors in your home? That's ok, too. The Freedom Spray Mop has a refillable bottle that allows you to add your own cleaning solution. You can even get a second refillable bottle and a handy stand to hold a different cleaning solution so that you can easily switch back and forth as needed. It's incredibly convenient.




The Freedom Spray Mop is the perfect green cleaning mop. The cleaning pads are reusable and washable so there is no extra waste. These pads are tough, too. They are made of microfiber and have little layers of scrubby strips that help get up tough, messy spots on the floor. I have been amazed that my mop has cleaned up a sticky glob of peanut butter, smooshed raisins, and even a big splat of spinach and fruit smoothie, without any effort on my part. I just squirt, mop, and I'm done.

One of my favorites things about the Libman Freedom Spray Mop is that it is so convenient. The mop has a little hook that allows it to easily hang for storage. There are no batteries needed to make it spray. The mop head swivels for easy cleaning in hard-to-reach spots. The refillable bottle keeps cleaning solution ready to go so there is no bucket to fill and no measuring needed. I literally just grab the mop and start cleaning. My floors have never been so happy.

The Libman Freedom Spray Mop has a fitting name. This mop gives you the freedom to choose your own cleaning solution, freedom from batteries, freedom from having to buy any kind of refills, and freedom from the old mopping bucket. I have never been so excited about a mop.

Besides all of the benefits of being green, the Freedom Spray Mop also saves money. There are no expense cleaning solutions or costly refills. There are no disposable cleaning pads. And you can even get a rebate coupon to buy the mop. I am still amazed because it's actually cheaper than my regular, old mop and bucket! Visit the Libman website for coupons.

  22. Make a clean-up basket or bucket, something just big enough to hold some rags (old t-shirts make great rags) and your usual cleaners and gloves. If you make it quick to grab what you need it will be easier to clean it right when little accidents happen! Clean as you go and you won't get overwhelmed!

  33. Microwave Cleaning:
    I use a cup of water with a squirt of lemon juice to clean my microwave. Place the cup in the microwave, put the power on max for about 5 minutes. The steam from the water moistens and loosens the cooked, dry food particles. The lemon gives a fresh aroma. Wipe the inside of microwave with clean cloth. The food particles come off easy.

  84. I do a quick wipe down of my bathrooms every day, and having clean bathrooms make my house feel cleaner! Also I don't let people wear shoes in my house, I have dark hardwood floors that show everything, and I have to keep them clean! So this helps me so I don't have to clean as often. No shoes= less mess on the floors.

  132. I don't really have any cleaning tips that I haven't already seen mentioned. I don't like to clean; however, because I can't stand for my floor to be dirty, I mop it with very HOT water. If I win this fabulous prize, I will let my kids mop for me. Thanks for the giveaway.

  140. I think it’s super-helpful to do a little cleaning on an almost-daily basis so it never gets crazy. For instance, I wipe down my microwave a couple times per week, so I never have a grimy mess. If food is never able to build up, it’s never hard to clean.

  150. I keep a box of good rags under the sink- we use them rather than rolls and rolls of paper towels! It's the green way to go! Dilute your favorite cleaner in a spray bottle for the chores you might otherwise choose to use the "wipes". Saves money.

  155. One of my favorite cleaning tips is using aluminum foil as a scrubber. I use this method to get baked-on food off a glass pan or an oven rack by using some dishwashing liquid and a ball of foil in place of a steel-wool soap pad. Works great!

  177. My favorite tip is for cleaning my bathtub's surface. It it tip #50:

    "To clean your shower surrounds without getting your hands wet, dip a Libman mop into a solution of 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1 cup of clear ammonia, and 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1 gallon of warm water. After cleaning, rinse with warm water."

    I like that these are natural products and it is effective.
