Looking to add more eco-friendly products and systems to your household cleaning routine?

Switching from disposable mop pads to reusable mop refills is a great and easy place to start. Our washable, reusable, and durable mop refills are better for the environment, your wallet, and dealing with heavy-duty household messes.

Making the swap for reusable mop refills is an earth-friendly change you can feel good about!

Ditch the Disposables

Ditch the Disposables

Disposable, single-use plastic mop pads are the norm for use with the average leading spray mop. One use, and into the garbage they go, further increasing our carbon footprint and adding to waste in landfills.

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. Together, this amounts to 7 lbs of single-use plastic waste created per household per year – resulting in over 8 MILLION lbs of waste every year in the US.

Our ProMist® MAX Microfiber Spray Mop and Washable Refill are a more sustainable solution to disposable spray mops. The microfiber refill can be tossed in the wash and used again for the next mess. The ProMist MAX also features a refillable bottle that can be filled with any solution you like. Or use with just water, as our microfiber mop heads remove 99% of bacteria with water alone.* It also has a battery-free trigger (other spray mops use up to 5 batteries per year).

Taken together, you can save up to 9x times annually on cleaning supplies by choosing ProMist MAX over a disposable spray mop. Saving the planet AND your wallet? Now that’s a good feeling!

Mop Smarter with EasyWring RinseClean and PACS Hard Floor Cleaner

The ProMist MAX Microfiber Spray Mop is not the only mop that comes with a washable, reusable mop head. In fact, ALL of our microfiber mops come with mop refills, saving you money and helping you be kinder to Mother Earth.

When you’re finished cleaning, tosh your refill in the washing machine (skip the bleach), lay flat to dry, and reuse! We suggest stocking up and having a different mop head on hand for every room in your home, to avoid spreading dirt from one room to another.

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.

Want to tackle tough messes while still being gentle on your hard floors? Pair our EasyWring RinseClean Spin Mop with O-Cedar PACS Hard Floor Cleaner.

PACS are made from 97% naturally derived ingredients with no harsh chemicals – no parabens, no bleach, no ammonia. Instead, these perfectly portioned PACS use the cleaning power of enzymes to dissolve dirt and grime.

No more plastic bottles full of harmful chemicals 
just drop a PAC in your bucket and get cleaning.

Reusable Mop Refills Are Better for Big Messes

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. In fact, single-use disposable mop pads are expensive and made to clean just one room before absorbing their maximum mess.

If you want to tackle and effectively clean your big messes, reusable microfiber mop heads 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, wring, and move on to the next mess.
