A WONDERful mop, even for my bad back!

Many of my longtime readers, as well as my friends and family now that I have been having issues with my back for over 2 years now. Most recently, my specialist realized that in addition to the joint and disc problems I have, that I also suffer from Fibromyalgia. While this definitely has an impact on the things that I am able to do, some things still have to be done regardless of how bad I feel. One of these things is mopping.

With three kids in the house, and one I must take extra precautions to keep healthy, it is of critical importance that things stay clean. Mopping is very hard on your back, the motion itself is something my doctor wants me to avoid, but the floors still have to be cleaned. So, I have been on a mission to find a mop that doesn't kill me each time I use it. The mops that are rope like are too much strain to use, and the mops with the sponge like heads work, but often require "elbow grease" to get up tough spots. Like when someone drops jelly on the floor and doesn't clean it up right away, and mom doesn't see it until she goes to mop.

A few weeks ago I was in Target and they had the Libman Wonder Mop on sale. I liked that the mop head is made of micro-fiber and is machine washable! It is comforting to know that I can mop with a CLEAN mop head each and every time without purchasing a replacement mop head to do so. So, I bought one. I came home and tried it out. I was amazed. I was WONDERful (pun intended, haha) I can't believe how much better the microfiber cloth cleaned my tile floors! There were several stains the kids had gotten on the floors and they came right up without any extra effort.

So I am sold. Of course replacement mop heads are also available, you can't expect them to last FOREVER, LOL:) I included amazon links to both the mop and the replacement head, and as you can see they are very reasonably priced. This is NOT a sponsored post, although I did contact Libman to get permission to post about their product before I wrote the review.
