My New Whizzy Gadget

 Hello my lovelies. 

I’m super excited to release this post on my blog today!

Firstly, let me tell you that I’m busy right now, so posts have been a bit sparse if late. 

A big part of my busyness is revamping the kitchen and utility room (more on that soon!)

But then along comes a gadget in your life that momentarily takes your focus away from your revamp .  A gadget that is so simple yet makes such a big difference that you think, duhh, why on earth didn’t I search out one of these whizzy gadgets before.  But it seems I’m not alone in this as I’ve already got friends and family rushing to buy this godsend of a gadget.  And they’re loving it too. 

This life changing gadget is this … tadahh!

It’s a mop. 

But not just any old mop!

Here’s why. 

1.  This one has an integrated refillable bottle that dispenses a mix of water and cleaning solution via a mophead.. 

(I’ve been clearing out my utility room and have found various bottles of floor cleaner (some unused) so there is a beauteous synergy in finding the mop at the exact same time I found my cleaning fluid bounty!)

2. It’s compact, light and easy to use and has an articulated mop head which allows you to get into the nooks and crannies of any room. 

3. The kit comes with three velcro’ed pads which are dead easy to place on the gadget. and they are so easy to throw into the washing machine to keep clean.  

So no costly and environmentally-unfriendly disposable mop pads.  

4. And this is the biggie - it is manual (not electric).  No faff with trailing cables and being restricted by socket positions. 

Which means that you can whisk this baby out at the drop of a hat, swish it around any floor anywhere, then pop it back in its cupboard in the blink of an eye. 

Keeping the kitchen floor clean and sparkly is now the work of moments!

Yes that last point is re the biggie for me.  At the end of a cooking day it’s weirdly FUN to clean the kitchen floor.   And using a good cleaning product that nourishes the floor at the same time is a double whammy.  My wooden kitchen floor actually looks cared for now, as well as looking super clean.  

You’ll be pleased to hear that I eventually calmed down from the excitement of this mop sent from heaven, and am getting back on track with my revamp project.  

How about watching my short and very amateur video for a demo? 

So on to cleaning products to add to the fluids bottle. I’m using this cleaning product (below) from my recently found stash.  It was unopened 😞.  Oops.

This product leaves my wooden floor looking nourished, and I give the impression that I’m a domestic goddess who spends hours on her knees nurturing her floorboards.  
Which I definitely DON’T! 
It’s not expensive.  I use this on all floor surfaces, wood, laminate and tiles, and it gives a great finish on all.  

Bit embarrassing really that I haven’t used this cleaning product before but there was always that faff, the dilemma of mop bucket and sloshy water versus long cabled electric steamer   So often I chose just doing nothing 😱!

But let’s get quickly back to this godsend of a mop. 

Here’s the link

The price varies and is around the £20 mark - one friend bagged hers for £17 (about $22)

Finding my whizzy mop has revolutionized my cleaning routine.  Now I just whip the filled spray mop off its hinge and clean the kitchen floor in just one minute. Just one minute.  I can’t stress that enough!

And I find myself keen to mop my floor.  Excited even!

So my floor is looking clean and nourished and as good as the day it was born (laid).

So please dear reader, I suggest you be kind to yourself - make your cleaning easier and quicker by treating yourself to one of these spray mops today.  

Literally EVERY family member and friend I’ve  introduced this to has bought one and is so very satisfied by (and excited with!) this product!

And as you are aware, my blog is not one that encourages wanton buying, but this little gadget is such a game changer that I thought I should share it’s magic with you. 

You’re welcome!

A la perchoine,

  1. it's great you have found a gadget to make cleaning easier! I know it made such a difference when we got our Dyson stick vacuum - I was able to do all the cleaning of the floors multiple times a day without fussing with a dustpan and broom, haha!

    Hope that you are having a good weekend :)

    Away From The Blue

    1. Yes a really good gadget can be a godsend eh Mica.
      Wishing you a great week!
      Hugs Mary xxx.

  2. I gave up on steam mops - they always broke in the end and after having gone through 3 I reverted back to the standard string mop. I like the sound and look of this one and may just splash out! Thank you...

    1. Oh such a shame you’ve had issues with your mops. This one feels sturdy. Go on Vronni, treat yourself!
