I just moved places, and they tried that with me. I laughed, and pulled out my own. I am quickly becoming the alpha in the herd.

Like this: AmazonBasics Side Press Wringer Combo Commercial Mop Bucket on Wheels, 35 Quart, Yellow

u/ClearAsNight · 6 pointsr/KitchenConfidential

A red bucket goes underneath the wringer. Like in this picture

u/RedAquaticRockEater · 5 pointsr/LifeProTips

Or use something like this. Much more convenient.

What is the United Solutions 12-Quart Plastic Utility Pail with Spout, the only bucket he did not already own.

u/ErisC · 4 pointsr/KitchenConfidential

I haaaated it when someone would misplace that damn thing. I could still open a bucket pretty easy due to sheer willpower but jeez that tool made it so much easier.

Jeez look at this noob not using a bucket

If you want a real BIFL mop system, go commercial. This mop is awesome and metal. You can really bear down on it to scrub with no worries of breaking plastic pieces. I use it on hardwood and slate floors. The pads velcro on and off easily. I use the dust mop every couple days and then go for the wet pads when the floors look dirty. I have 2 wet pads that I switch between when I go from room to room. They are machine washable, but I don't wash them between every mop, maybe every 4. Get a bucket and some Murphy's oil soap and you'll be set.

You're thinking of a lid wrench, which looks similar, but this is a ring pull can opener for people with arthritis or limited hand mobility/strength.

u/Shubniggurat · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Mop heads are inherently disposable. If you have a floor with a rough surface (like certain slip-resistant tiles), they'll chew up mops like, well, I don't know, because I'm bad with metaphors.

That said, you'll get the best overall lifespan and performance out of a professional-type string mop and mop bucket with wringer. The mop head you select is going to largely depend on your application and personal preferences. Most, if not all, can be washed, and replacement heads can be found at any big box hardware store.

u/Theupixf · 3 pointsr/BroMoHousekeeping

I just use a regular broom and this mop

The spray part went out on me (I think it's clogged but I can't figure out where), so I just use a spray bottle with it. Vinegar water mixture and a little baking soda if needed help get my tile floor clean. If you really need to clean the grout, I suggest scrubbing it with a cleaning brush or an old toothbrush. I've been told that denture paste is great for grout.

u/cxbu · 2 pointsr/Wishlist

this will make spring cleaning a little easier

u/mcloovvin · 2 pointsr/jimmyjohns
u/squired · 2 pointsr/homeowners

Don't buy a Swiffer, they're shit. Get this instead, and use it to mop with this no-rinse solution.

You'll just have to trust me, I've tried everything because we have crawling babies, and the above combo is by far the best. Also, don't use Bona products unless you're going to buff it every couple of days. If you don't, you'll just end up with a pasty, cloudy mess, especially on dark floors. Then you'll have to strip it down; no bueno.

If you can afford it, a robotic vacuum also helps a great deal. I prefer the Neato over the Roomba, because it's an actual vacuum. As such, it is significantly louder, but does a much better job, particularly with pet hair.

For spot cleaning before a friend pops in, you can't beat a cordless vac. They're actually a blast to use and you can sprint around the house with them when needed. If guests are dropping in last minute, my wife will run with that cordless and I'll chase her with the mop. Pristine house in under 5 minutes! Lol

u/MichelangeloGrows · 2 pointsr/microgrowery

Omg so originally I started collecting cat buckets! Lol and then I did an eBay search for black cat buckets because of the algae issue with buckets that allow light to shine through, and sure enough they had them.

I tried to find the seller again, but it seems to be discontinued. Here is a seller on Amazon:

5.3 Gallon Black Rectangular Bucket/Pail with Hinged Snap Lid, 2 Pack

u/skitzo2000 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

ahh ok, Thats helps a little. consider one of these. It will make getting bucket lids open significantly easier. I have a lot of trouble opening buckets once I cold crash so I feel your pain there.

You might consider a different fermentor type. The Fermonster lid has a big bung hole(hahahaha) in the middle where most people would put a #10 stopper with an airlock attached. you could easily modify the lid so that your thermowell and blow off tube go through the screw on lid. Then the original bung hole you could use for samples and adding things in.

u/aerynjbson · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I apologize for the formatting, I'm on mobile.

Mop handle: fiberglass, tough as shit.

Rubbermaid mop heads: again, wash ( regular or gentle, not heavy) and hang dry.

Wring bucket: sturdy, can take alot of use and you can replace the wringer and bucket separately, altho it's going to be at couple years before the wringer needs replaced.

It seems expensive but it's one of those buy for life things.

Dust mop handle: snaps on to the wire frame. You can even replace the pole for like a 8$

Dust mop frame : easy to maneuver, low profile, basically lasts forever even if you run over it with a floor scrubber or gator.:

Dust mops ; you have two options, cloth and microfiber. Both have their strengths and weakness. Both can be washed and hung. Cloth ones last longer and are better for larger spaces and pick up bigger bits of things better.

Microfiber is good if you don't accumulate alot of dirt and dust, works well with pet hair.

Synthetic cloth:

Microfiber dust mops need a different frame and handle. They are lighter and thinner but feel light compared to the synthetic cloth and wire frames. The frame relies on a type of velcro grip. Eventually that wears out and you have to replace the heads and handles/frames more often.

Microfiber frame/handle:

For home use, 18/24 inch width should be sufficient.

I swear I'm not a shill. I've just had alot of exp with commercial cleaning products and equipment.

If you ever want some cleaning chemical recommendations hit me up.

u/unicorndanceparty · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This would be absolutely amazing for my house. This is my first time living in a house with mostly hardwood floor, and I'm realizing how much of a pain it is to clean them! Not only do vacuums not work very well (although mine just died on me) on hardwood floors, but I also feel like the mop that I have doesn't clean them very well. I know that the roommates living in this house before me did not clean at all (you don't want to know some of the things my roommate and I have found while cleaning it.) I would be much more at ease if I could really give the floors a good mopping! It would make my OCD clean self very happy <3

Thank you for hosting :) conviviality

u/annerevenant · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

My dog had to be inside all day a couple of weeks ago because of the heat so he peed in the kitchen. I was squatting to clean it when my husband walked in and freaked out because I was sitting there trying to balance myself and breathing heavy, he thought I had fallen or was having some sort of episode. What used to take me 30 seconds to clean now take me 5 minutes, he got on to me and told me to wait until he got home but I don't want to just leave dog pee in the floor!

At church yesterday I realized I could no longer kneel when praying, I have to rest my butt on the seat because my belly is in the way. Unfortunately I'm really good at hiding my bump so I'm sure the older couple behind me thought I was just lazy.

I have something like this I bought a few months ago to help clean the tub/shower, maybe you could invest in one to help clean the tub. I've found I actually really like it so I'll probably keep using it even after I have the baby since bending over a tub is uncomfortable even on a good day.

u/akamerer · 2 pointsr/Frugal

There are several models of string- and sponge- mops with removable, washable heads. Here's a popular one on Amazon for $15.

Zipcase Laundry Hook: Let the Air Circulate to Dry the Washer Keep the Washer Fresh No More Bad Smell

u/AcuteAnimosity · 1 pointr/randomactsofamazon

I used the random list generator and got cxbu's list. An item I liked and thought was cool was this boom holder that can hold 5 brooms!. I think a person must be very clean if they need a device to hold 5 brooms/ other cleaning things like mops maybe? Or maybe they just have that many brooms in order to imply the illusion of cleanliness?

u/ArabTRWrist · 1 pointr/PrintedMinis

I'm gonna drop my resin links here and some short descriptions

First off, get some various sizes buckets or containers for cleaning. I find that these sanitation pails are great. You can also just get cheap Tupperware. I use these for cleaning vats, tools, and I always set the bottle in them when refilling.

You should also get a good respirator. Any hardware store should have one.

For curing I made an acrylic box and put this lamp on it.
You could use cheaper LED strips etc.

Box. I use something similar with a mirror on the bottom. You could add foil or mirror film for the same effect.

Funnels, any hardware store has them. I bought a large oil funnel that I put the paint filter in and the tray also fits in. And just hang it above the bottle.

A ton of IPA! Hardware stores have this in 1 gallon tins.

Pro-tip this thing... But it's completely not necessary.

u/purrImacatpurpur · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Yay Doctor Who refrence!!! OK... I need a bucket yes, indeed... or two, even... because I need a bucket to wash floors/my car with but I also need a bucket to soak my wigs in... so two buckets but one it fine haha

I took a sip of something poison, but I'll hold on tight

that's kind of sad and depressing...

u/olssoneerz · 1 pointr/battlestations

Its called a lot of different things! I call it a cable tube. Here's an amazon link - Its cut in the middle so you can slip cords in and out easy. Its also easy to cut so you can tailor it to your needs!

u/RazorUK84 · 1 pointr/GermanShepherd

Gorgeous foreground... the background makes me sad :-\ you could definitely do with a cable-tidy.

e.g. Extension tidy and cable sleeve

u/raxave · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife
u/caraeeezy · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I kind of really need this Swiffer because my white fuzzy cat has hair all over the place and sweeping it just is not cutting it.

Thanks for the contest! :3

u/pandas_mom · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This is the BEST THING EVER for cleaning a bathroom super quick. Works with THESE REFILLS

You should totally get them to stock my house or yours!

u/yepyepyepyep · 1 pointr/gadgets

Smart mop isn't a gadget, it's a poorly made knock off of the Libman Wonder Mop, (which i fucking love, btwz).
