5. Hard floor brush
I searched for a good mop for a long time. I tried a steam mop, but after a while a plastic part broke off, which was irreplaceable of course, and therefore the steam mop was no longer usable. Then I tried a spinner mop. It cleaned well, but it was also made of plastic and died after after a short period.
I had enough of all the plastic options and was determined that my next mop was going to be one made of stainless steel or wood. Then a scrub brush passed by. Just a hard brush that you can attach a handle to.
The hard brush is definitely an item you want to add to your most basic, natural cleaning supplies. It’s great for scrubbing tiles first and then mopping them. For floors that cannot be scrubbed I use the scrubber and fold a mop cloth over it. I rinse the mop the cloth regularly. It’s fast, easy and… simple!
What’s great about a separate scrubber and mop cloth, is that you can put a lot of pressure on the scrubber and mop (great for tough stains). Also, because the mop cloth is just a cloth it dries quickly and it’s easy to rinse.
