Reusable Mop Refills are Sustainable

Using eco-friendly products, minimizing waste, recycling, and reusing when possible are a few critical steps you can take to live more sustainably. Replacing your disposable mop pads with reusable ones is a simple swap that makes a big impact. 

Disposable, single-use plastic mop pads are the norm for use with the average leading spray mop. One use, and into the landfill they go: In fact, each household that uses them will go through many single-use plastic pad refills per year.

Plus, the chemical solutions used with the leading spray mop come in non-refillable plastic bottles that are thrown out when empty. We’ve found that households will go through up to 18 of those bottles each year.

Our ProMist® MAX Microfiber Spray Mop Washable Refill and EasyWring™ RinseClean™ Spin Mop Refill are reusable and machine washable sustainable alternatives to single-use disposable pads. You can wash (just skip the bleach!), lay them out to dry, reuse them again and again, and only need to replace them every three months! 

Both the EasyWring™ RinseClean™ Spin Mop System and ProMist® MAX Microfiber Spray Mop remove 99% of bacteria with just water* so you can say “See ya!” to wasteful and toxic chemical bottles.

Reusable Mop Refills are Budget-Friendly

Not only are reusable mop refills more sustainable and better for the environment, they’re more friendly to your wallet. Single-use disposable mop pads are expensive and made to clean just one room before absorbing their maximum mess. 

If you mop just two rooms once a week, that amounts to more than 100 disposable pads every year! Imagine how many pads you would need for a house with mostly tile or hardwood floors.

Disposable pads can become a very costly cleaning option, with households that use the leading spray mop spending $187 each year on cleaning according to our research. 

Opting for reusable mop refills helps you save money in the long run. Because you can wash and reuse our ProMist® MAX Microfiber Spray Mop Washable Refill and EasyWring™ RinseClean™ Spin Mop Refill, you save yourself trips to the store and money. In fact, our research shows that ProMist® MAX Microfiber Spray Mop users spend just $50 on cleaning each year when using just water.

Reusable Mop Refills Are Better for Big Messes

Daily spills happen, and with kids or pets in the mix, those spills can turn into frequent big messes! Disposable mop heads don’t clean as well as reusable mop refills and don’t cover as much floor. If you want to tackle and effectively clean your big messes, reusable microfiber mop pads are the better and more durable option.

Our reusable mop refills are great for effectively cleaning large areas, and the ProMist® MAX Microfiber Spray Mop Washable Refill is dual-sided. When one side has been used, you can quickly turn it over without needing a new mop pad. 

We designed the  EasyWring™ RinseClean™ Spin Mop Refill for use with the EasyWring™ RinseClean™ Spin Mop System, so you can quickly rinse, ring, and move on to the next mess.

Cleaning Tip: To minimize spreading contaminating bacteria in your home, throw a used reusable mop refill in the washing machine and switch to another before you move to the next room.
