How To Refresh Your Mop After Cleaning


Cleaning at home can sometimes be enjoyable when you have a few hacks up your sleeve. Why not take advantage of this easy mop cleaning hack so that the next time you have a spill of pet accident you do not have to be worried so much about how to get your mop back into a nice refreshing state.


Pro Tip: Do not ever use your hand to squeeze out a mop. Even if you are wearing a glove, the small particles that the mop pick up while wiping may be sharp enough to cut through the gloves and then cut your hand. If you get cut while squeezing a mop, you are exposing your bloodstream to some of the most dangerous bacteria and micro-organisms. Remember that the floor has dirt from all the mess you step in outside of the house. Some of the things a mop pick up can be either deadly or highly infectious. So never, ever use hands to squeeze out a mop.


Instead, you can get a mop bucket like the one below, or one that has a squeezer at the top. Always think safety first.


So if you just used your mop to clean up some of the worst spills, dirt or grease. Here is how to get back to clean and fresh.


What to use:

1 Gallon Hot water


5 Cups White Vinegar


4 Tablespoons Dish Soap


1 Cup Baking Soda


1 Cup Hydrogen Peroxide


Wet the mop first with some cold water in the mop bucket.


Sprinkle a little of the dish soap, hydrogen peroxide, and baking soda and toss the mop around in the bucket to get the mixture to distribute. While the mixture is combining, it will soften and lift most of the tough stains and grease from the fabric.


Pour off that portion of soapy liquid and rinse the mop with some cold water. Using the squeeze section at the top of the mop bucket, remove excess water and empty the mop bucket.


Put the mop back in the bucket and pour on the hot water, vinegar, and the remaining baking soda and dish soap.


Toss the mop around in the hat mixture for two minutes.


Pour off and give it a rinse with cold water adding the remaining hydrogen peroxide to the final rinse.


Remove excess water and place the mop in a hanging position to dry.


There you have it, clean and refreshed mop!
