How to Improvise a Spray Mop
In my opinion, the spray mop is one of the best cleaning inventions ever. This simple-to-operate tool eliminates the need to haul a bucket of water around, wringing out a mop as you go. Depending on what you're looking for, spray mops can get pricy, but I've discovered that you can improvise one for less than five bucks.
What You'll Need:
Cut two lengths of velcro from the roll to apply to the bottom of the flat mop head. This velcro was peel and stick, but to ensure it stays put, apply strong glue such as E6000 to the back of each strip and let it dry thoroughly.
Attach Cleaning Pad
After the glue has had time to dry, you can attach the microfiber mop pad and you're ready to clean.
Spray and Mop
Fill a small plastic spray bottle with your favourite floor cleaner (I favour vinegar and water) and spray a small section of the floor at a time. I like the microfiber cleaning pads because they're washable and can be reused many times before you have to buy a new one.
I found that my improvised spray mop was very effective at cleaning the floor and I already had what I needed on hand!
