Aside from one small section of flooring upstairs, my house is all hardwood floors and linoleum. This means that I use a mop constantly – I’ve become somewhat of a “Mop connoisseur” over the years through trial and error. Since I use my mop with so much frequency, I have gone through quite a few over the years. I’m always looking for new and better cleaning solutions, so when I was at BlogHer last summer, the Bona product booth caught my eye.
After I got home, I chatted further with Bona and received a package containing some of their products. Funny story: Right after the package arrived, there was a minor kitchen disaster where one of Jai’s drinks got spilled all over the kitchen floor. He joked, “I guess this would be a good time to try out that new mop!” I insisted on taking a photo of the box before he pulled the mop out, so you can see the first mess that was cleaned using our new Bona Hardwood Floor Mop Motion. 😉
This mop has been put to constant use since it arrived, and I love it. The cloth cleaning pad is reusable – it attaches with Velcro, and once I’ve gone through the house and cleaned all the floors, I just take it off, throw it into the washing machine, and it’s ready to use again! This is by far my favorite feature of the mop, as this cuts down on the waste and expense of buying disposable cleaning pad refills. The cleaning solution affixes to the mop via a bottle, which screws in. The bottle is also designed to be refillable, so once again, you cut down on costs.
The Bona Hardwood Floor Mop is lightweight, with a small battery compartment in the mop head. The mop head is fitted with a button which you press with your foot, which turns its optional vibration on and off for those times you want a little extra scrubbing action – but it’s not an extreme vibration, so it’s not going to scour your floor for you.
I’ve been using this mop constantly since I received it, and it’s been great. It covers a wide area with the size of the mop head and pad, and the fact that I can easily reuse and refill it makes it perfect for my all-hardwood-floors house, since I have to mop so often.
And that’s not the only way Bona has given me a hand around the house! I also received a bottle of their Cabinet Cleaner, and it’s been handy for wiping down my living room furniture – since Jai likes to build beautiful, custom wood furniture, having this cleaner is great for keeping it shiny!
