The trick to cleaning the mop for washing floors and making it look like new again

By liliaturcin5

What would happen to our floor if we didn’t always have a mop at hand? This very useful tool, however, has a disadvantage: it is almost impossible to keep it clean .

Over time, the mop takes on a grayish color and an unpleasant odor, caused by the dirt and bacteria that accumulate on it during each use.

Dirt settles on the mop , and the humidity to which it is constantly exposed favors the proliferation of bacteria which become impossible to eliminate even with chemical substances.

The most effective method to keep your mop clean is to wash and dry it, preferably under the sun’s rays, to reduce the build-up of bacteria. Below we explain how to do it.

You need a bucket, water, floor soap, white vinegar and the juice of one lemon.

Pour the water, vinegar and lemon juice into the bucket. Wash the mop well with water and floor soap, scrubbing until a lot of foam forms. Dip the mop in the bucket and let it sit for three hours.

Rinse the mop and let it dry in the sun. Once dry it will be very clean, will have regained its original color and ready to be used.
