Here at Washing Check, we all know the importance of convenience and we love to give you the easiest ways to get those clean results to maintain a beautiful looking home.

So, we were more than happy to review some of the most practical and user-friendly pieces of kit that every household should have – the spray mop. In fact, we have whittled down the selection to just 6 of the best spray mops in the UK today.

You’ve already done the most expensive task and purchased the flooring – whether that be laminate, hard wood, tiled floors, vinyl and so on. Now it’s time to look after it. And it doesn’t have to cost the earth or be some magic formula to get your floors sparkling.

Just the opposite in fact. Using a spray mop is probably one of the simplest, yet most effective ways to keep your floors looking brand new.

If you’re like me and have a busy household, then it can feel like you are endlessly cleaning the floor – muddy paw prints, children coming home after school and dumping their belongings and shoes, messy work boots, the list goes on!

Nobody wants to do the back breaking tasks of cleaning any floor on their hands and knees. As much as I love cleaning, I can think of nothing more tedious! That’s why the spray mop will become your new best friend – any spills or dirt can be quickly and easily cleaned away without you needing to mix up a solution, dig out the floor wipes or wait for the bucket to fill up.

Using a spray mop is simple, quick, and easy. Most mops have convenience in mind and do the same kind of job. But let’s take a more in depth look at 6 of what we consider to be the best spray mops on available in the UK right now.

Flash Power Mop

Specs:

Brand: Flash

Contents: Spray mop, 10 pads, cleaning solution refill

Colour: Purple

Let’s start our list off with a well-known brand – Flash – who have been designing cleaning products since 1964 and have a huge fan base with households all over the world.

From cleaning cloths, to disinfectants and more recently the spray mop which is precisely what we’re looking at today. In fact, Flash have called it a powermop, so let’s see if it lives up to its name.

This isn’t just a mop though, this is a whole starter kit with an impressive price. You get the dual spray mop, absorbing pads, cleaning solution, and assembly instructions. It takes batteries and you also get these included, which is handy as nobody likes hunting for batteries, especially when keen to try out a new gadget!

You can assemble the mop with minimal effort. The length of the mop comes folded and simply clicks into place, this is then attached to the spray compartment and bottom of the mop.

The cleaning solution slots into place easily and when you have attached one of the pads to the bottom of the mop, and you’ve remembered to insert the batteries, it’s ready to use. If you do get stuck, you can always refer to the manual.

You will find a button at the top of the handle – this, when pressed will release the cleaning solution. You don’t need to soak your floor with the spray. Flash’s technology means it is tough enough to clean your floors, although if you have a particularly stubborn stain, you may want to give it an extra spray to make sure you remove all the dirt.

After spraying, glide the mop over the solution to give the gleaming results you’ve been hoping for. You will be surprised just how quickly you can get your floors clean using the Powermop and thanks to its long length you will not need to bend or stoop down – making it ideal for those that may have back problems or just find the task of the household chores a bit too much.

When you have finished with the pads, you can simply replace with a new one, and this goes for the cleaning solution too. When you notice you’re running low you can buy refills.

We love the simplicity, yet effectiveness of the Flash Powermop and we’re sure you will be just as impressed as we were.

Top tip for using the Flash Powermop – If you find assembly a bit tricky, the user manual or guidance on the side of the box will help.

Best Overall Pick

If you are new to spray mops and don’t know where to start, opting for the Flash Powermop Starter Kit is going to be your best bet.

Vileda 1-2 Spray Mop

Specs:

Brand: Vileda

Contents: Microfibre flat floor mop, extra mop head, 1 refill

Colour: Red

Another trusted brand now, this time from Vileda. They give us the 1-2 spray mop and another one that we do really like.

The mop itself simply clicks together to give you the sturdy frame. At the top is the handle which also has the trigger to allow you to spray your water or detergent onto your floor.

Just below the handle is where the water goes – open the cap and pour in your preferred solution. You can buy Vileda’s cleaning solution, but we found water mixed with a little of our favourite detergent was sufficient enough.

Now your water is filled you are ready to go. We would recommend pressing the button a couple of times at first use, just to get the liquid flowing through properly.

The nozzle is located at the bottom of the handle, just above the mop head, meaning you get good coverage right where you need it. The solution comes out as a fine mist every time you press the button, therefore being able to control just how wet you need the floor. This is great if you have different types of flooring and need to be careful of the amount of liquid or solution being applied to it.

The mop will glide effortlessly, with the microfibre pad picking up any dirt or grime along the way. We love the fact that the pads are machine washable too – maintaining your cleaning tools as well as your flooring is just as important to ensure that they produce the best results possible.

You do also have the option to buy replacement pads when you think it’s time.

Top tip for using the Vileda 1-2 Spray Mop – When you have finished using the mop, take off the microfibre cloth and hang it out to dry thoroughly (unless it needs washing, then just throw it in the machine).

Top Flat Mop Head Choice

If you want a mop head that is flat but can clean your floors efficiently, Vileda have got just the one for you.

An effortless glide feature and spray that gives a good coverage – this mop is a great contender.

Addis 2-in-1 Spray Mop

full length mop

Specs:

Brand: Addis

Contents: Spray mop, 1 microfibre cloth

Colour: Grey

Established in 1780, Addis have become a household name for their homeware and a brand that people can rely on to help maintain their home’s clean condition.

This is not as colourful as the previous two, but with its sleek frame and modern colour scheme, it will easily fit into any home while in use and will store away nicely. So that’s the aesthetics of the product, but how does it function?

In a word – brilliantly! You can use the mop to both dry and wet clean. When using it to dry sweep, the microfibre pad is soft enough that it won’t scratch your floor, but strong enough to pick up any dust or stray dog hairs – I have a dog who loves to shake so this is perfect for catching them quickly by simply grabbing the mop to do the job.

But that’s enough about that – onto the really important part – the spray feature. Let’s start with the tank that holds the solution. And this is a pretty big tank which is ideal when you have a large area of hard floor that needs cleaning. It is also clear so you can see exactly how much solution is left.

It means you don’t need to worry about the time you’ll spend topping up the tank, but rather admiring how clean your floors are!

Simply fill the tank with water or cleaning solution of your choice (just make sure to always check the product is suitable for your floor type), and using the trigger on the handle, squeeze to release the desired amount. Using the typical forwards and back motion, the microfibre pad will work with the cleaning agent to wipe away any dirt, spills, or stains.

As well as the standard motion, the Addis 2 in 1 mop also boasts a 360-degree swivel head – perfect for those hard-to-reach places and the long handle makes it a much better option than a traditional mop and bucket. No more bending down and having to wring out a wet mop. As we mentioned earlier, we like the convenience and effortless cleaning that the spray mop gives us.

The two parts of the handle click together, and the tank also clicks in – all with minimal effort. The microfibre cloth is, like most on this list, reusable, and machine washable. Simply remove it using the velcro tabs. All in all, this is a great mop at a very reasonable price.

Top tip for using the Addis 2 in 1 spray mop – Take advantage of the swivel head which helps you to completely clean your floors, even in the hardest to reach places.

Perfect For Minimal Effort

If you are not the biggest fan of cleaning, the Addis 2 in 1 mop will do the hard work for you.

A swivel head, washable pads and a large tank are some of the features that make this a wonderful addition to your cleaning regime.

MEXERRIS Microfibre Spray Mop

Specs:

Brand: MEXERRIS

Contents: Spray mop, 3 reusable pads, 2 refillable bottles, 1 scrubber tool

Colour: Purple or blue

On to a lesser well-known brand now – Mexerris. This spray mop comes with a lot of extra features and for the affordable price this is brilliant.

Let’s look at the water bottles first – you get two. This means you can fill your spare one up so as soon as your first one is empty, just click the other one into place and away you go again. An useful option if you are cleaning a big area and don’t want to stop. I’m sure we all know from experience that if you have to stop for any reason during the household chores, it can be difficult to start up again!

The bottles can be filled with just water, your favourite cleaning solution, or a homemade remedy – just remember to check the suitability of cleaning products for your type of flooring. The bottles are transparent so you can see how much water or solution you are using – this is a great way to avoid waste because you will get used to how much you need for each room for a successful clean.

The mop is sturdy and assembly is straightforward, with an easy to grip handle and the trigger situated underneath. Squeezing the trigger will activate the spray and this is released from a fan shaped nozzle just above the mop head. This gives an adequate amount of coverage per spray, again this helps with saving your solution by not over spraying, letting you have complete control.

With the mop head being very slim you can get under your furniture to reach those places that are easily missed. This is another reason we love this mop – and with it being lightweight and with a 360-degree rotating head, cleaning with this spray mop is effortless and simple.

You get a handy scrubber tool to keep your mop head clean. Use the smoother edge to remove any excess liquid from the microfibre pad and the toothed edge will clean off any dirt, dust, or hair.

Top tip for using the Mexerris Spray Mop – When cleaning larger areas, fill both bottles up to save time.

Ideal For larger Floors

With features such as a cleaning tool, 2 bottles, a 360 degree head – this is a bargain.

Even with the cheaper price tag, the quality is still brilliant and worth considering.

Aiglam Spray Mop

Specs:

Brand: Aiglam

Contents: Microfibre mop, 3 reusable pads, refillable bottle, scraper tool

Colour: Green or red

Coming in at the halfway price tag, Aiglam give us this delightful offering. The pole is stainless steel and when assembled gives you a good length – just click them together along with the water bottle and mop head.

The bottle can be refilled when needed and you can add water with some drops of your favourite detergent, or you can buy a convenient bottle of cleaning solution if you prefer. Similar to the Mexerris mop, the spray is pumped out as a fine mist from a fan shaped nozzle, using a trigger located on the handle.

You get three microfibre pads which are machine washable, meaning they should last a pretty long time before you need to buy new ones – depending on how much flooring you have to clean and how dirty it gets! The pad easily fits over the mop head so you can get on with cleaning the floors without the worry that you’ll have to keep reapplying it.

Again, like the Mexerris, you get the added tool that will help maintain your microfibre pads. As soon as you’ve finished cleaning you can squeeze out any excess moisture and scrape off any hair or debris that the mop has picked up. Hang it on the line or pop it on your clothes horse to dry off and it’s good to go for next time.

With its rotating head you will find that you can get into every corner and under every piece of furniture, leaving your floors sparkling and another chore completed with ease.

Top tip for using the Aiglam Spray Mop – To maintain the longevity of your microfibre pad, use the scraper tool to keep it clean after each use.

Great For Convenience

If you want a simple and easy to use mop – Aiglam is one for your shortlist.

With reusable pads and refillable bottle you will be saving money in the long run too.

Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop

Specs:

Brand: Rubbermaid

Contents: Spray mop, 3 pads, 2 refillable bottles

Colour: Red and grey

The last spray mop on our list is from a company called Rubbermaid – and this one is our most expensive. So, does it live up to its price tag?

We’ll start off with the mop as a whole – the pole’s sturdy frame is thanks to the aluminium it is made from, while the handle, mop head and bottle holder are plastic.

The trigger is located on the handle, and you also get a little hook that will allow you to hang it up when not in use – we love little features like this.

On to the spray bottle now – you get two of them. This is handy when you have larger areas to clean, you can quickly replace it with the bottle you prefilled before you started cleaning. We have stated throughout this article that we wanted to give you convenience and make the cleaning less of a mundane chore – the extra bottle will definitely give you a helping hand. It may not make you like the housework more, but it will make it quicker at least!

Similarly, if you have different types of flooring that require the use of different products, then it would be a good idea to make up the bottles with two different solutions so you can change them quickly and glide through the house with ease. It would be all too easy to do the whole house with one cleaning agent, but do you really want to run the risk of ruining your expensive floor?

Like most on this list, you simply fill up the bottle with your desired cleaning solution and you’re ready to go. A couple of sprays is normally all you need, you don’t want to soak your floor, but just have enough solution on there to free your space from any stains, dirt, or loose hairs.

The microfibre pads are machine washable, although we’d recommend hand washing them as they are a little on the thin side. Saying that, they do their job well and we think this one is definitely worth the money if you don’t mind parting with a bit more cash.

The mop head pivots which means you can get all those hard-to-reach places without having to get on your hands and knees or move furniture about.

Top tip for using the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop – If you are short on space, hang up your mop using the little hook on the handle.

Good Choice For Multiple Floor Types

If your home has different types of flooring and you don’t want to be emptying and refilling the bottles, then Rubbermaid have you covered with supplying 2 bottles for your convenience.0ld

FAQs

Why should I choose a spray mop?

If you want convenient, no fuss, minimal effort cleaning then a spray mop is perfect for you. They are more practical than a mop and bucket, take up little room when stored away, and give you a fresh and clean floor in as little as 10 minutes.

Their handles are easy to grip and the pads help the mop to glide smoothly across your floor. They are really user friendly, even for the people who really hate household chores!

Are spray mops heavy?

No, they are lightweight and slimline, meaning they are practical for all households. Smaller floor space will get cleaned quickly thanks to their functionality and some can even be hung up if they have a hook feature thanks to them not being too heavy.

Can I use my own cleaning solution?

Yes, although make sure you read the guidance before doing this. Some floors may not be able to cope with certain chemicals in solutions. If you are not completely confident you can always pick up floor products from your local supermarket.

If your floor doesn’t need much cleaning, you can use water and add a couple of drops of your favourite detergent – this will not only clean sufficiently but will leave you with a pleasant-smelling room too.

Conclusion

So that is pretty much it – everything is simple, effortless, convenient. All the things we love in a cleaning gadget.

We are big fans of spray mops. They are easily assembled, you can choose your cleaning product and control how much spray to use on certain floors. They can be used as part of a weekly household routine, a quick clean up if you have guests coming over, or when something gets spilt.

We have given you 6 of the best spray mops on the market today and we are sure that you will be able to find one within your budget. They all have the same purpose in mind – to give you an efficient clean that will give great results with minimal effort.
