Mop Head Cleaning Instruction
Have you ever wondered if the mop you were using to clean your floors was spreading germs around instead? This might be true if you are not cleaning your mop properly after each use. You will need white vinegar, hot water, lemon juice, the sun, or non-toxic green laundry detergent, white vinegar, a washing machine.
After you are finished cleaning your floors, rinse your mop thoroughly in hot water and a cup of white vinegar. Repeat until water is completely clean. You can also rinse in plain warm water, then soak the mop head or microfiber pad in full-strength lemon juice. Don’t rinse, hang outside for the sunshine until it dries for maximum disinfecting power.
But the most effective way to clean a mop head is by tossing it in the laundry. After cleaning your floors, rinse surface dirt off with hot water, then remove the head and toss in the wash using a non-toxic green laundry detergent with a cup of white vinegar. Wash mop heads and microfiber pads separately from your usual laundry on the hottest setting.
