​Things that Spin mop innovated the regular mop

1. You can actually keep your hands clean when using a Spin mop

The number one reason why everyone hates cleaning is due to the fact that more often than not you need to get your hands literally dirty to get everything else clean. This is also the same reason why it is next to impossible to have your children help you mop the floor. It is because they know that after they break a sweat, they’d have to touch and squeeze the dirtiest part of the mop with their bare hands.


Luckily spin mops like the MopRite Spin Mop have a built in drying drum that rotates the mop head thousands of times a minute to completely dry your mop without you having to touch it.
