Handle is a pain
on January 20, 2018
I like the mop head size--not too small, not too large. I like the fact it's metal (durable). And it has "nubs" that grip the cloth.
However, I don't like the handle. One, it screws in and thus, it is prone to coming undone which is annoying. Really? All handles for mops of this type should be clip on because you must twist the handle to mop correctly. Two, it isn't continuously adjustable--there's an extension you add on. Without the extension, the handle is a bit too short and I find myself bending over (I'm 5'9"); with it, it's way too long--maybe adequate for someone 7' or so. Or maybe if you wanted to dust the outside walls of your house. To be honest, I did use it when I polyurethaned a floor--dusting in between coats--I didn't have to move as much and made the job quicker. But the handle was so long that as I walked from room to room, it would hit the walls. And it hit the ceiling when I replaced the pads (I put the mop head on the counter). If only the extension were about half as long. I'm going to attempt to cut it down.
Lastly, for those people who complain about the head flipping: you're probably not using it correctly. These aren't used like the old fashioned mops that you push back and forth. (I found a nice video on the internet about how to use).
