Libman sent me one of their Freedom mops to try out, and the entire family loves it! You can see Nate using it in our living room. What you couldn't know unless I told you, is that he picked it up and started using it with absolutely no prompting! He saw the mop, grabbed it and tried it out. When I asked him what he thought, he said it worked pretty good.
What I like about the Libman Freedom Mop is that the microfiber cloths that attach to the bottom can be washed in the washing machine, which means I'm not creating more garbage. I also received an extra pad, so when one is in the wash, the mop can still be used. The other thing I liked is that the spray bottle can be filled with whatever cleaning solution I choose -- vinegar, water & a bit of essential oil gets the job done!
But, the real question is: How does it work? I'm happy to report that it does a great job on both our tile and our laminate floors. The spray nozzle spreads the cleaning solution in front of the mop and the microfiber pads do a great job of scrubbing the floor. I'm also happy using it without the spray in areas like the living room and hallway just to get the dust off the floor.
It's also easy for kids to use! It's lightweight and both boys have no problem using it when their chores include cleaning floors.
These mops are made in the USA by a 4th generation, family-owned company. As well as trying to be green whenever possible, we also try to buy USA-made whenever possible!
I have to mention again how it is eco-friendly since you don't have to purchase brand-specific items as refills, and the pads are fully washable (company information says at least 50 times). I can see the Libman Freedom Mop lasting a long time!
