Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop - Review and Giveaway

~This Giveaway Is Now Closed~



Rubbermaid invited me to try out their new Reveal Spray Mop. The Reveal Mop kit includes the lower and upper mop assembly, 3 microfiber pads, and 2 refillable bottles.



The Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop helps the average user save up to $50 per year vs. the leading spray mop. Here's how the mop works and cleans while saving you money:

Save more and waste less
- Wash and reuse the durable microfiber cleaning pad up to 100 times
- With no need for batteries or refills, you'll save money and time with fewer errands

Choose your own solution - it's your floor, clean it your way
- Just mix two TBSP of your favorite cleaning solution with water in the refillable bottle, close the cap, and click it into the mop
- Control the amount of solution you dispense by putting a little or a lot of pressure on the trigger. Spray a little for a small spill and a lot for tougher messes.

Brilliantly clean - microfiber makes the difference
- Microfibers are ultra-thin fibers that grab onto dirt and grime and hold on tight, leaving you an amazingly clean floor
- The wide, thick microfiber pad reaches deep into cracks and crevices to pick up 50% more dirt than traditional sponge mops
- The microfiber pad doesn't just get floors cleaner, it even helps them dry faster so you can get on with your day

My Review
I have to admit that cleaning floors is one of those chores that I really dread. We have hardwood floors and also ceramic tile, so I was anxious to try out this mop on both types of surfaces. I placed two TBSP of my favorite eco-friendly general cleaning cream and hot water in the refillable bottle. I then used the Reveal Spray Mop to clean the hardwood floors in my entry foyer and the ceramic tile in my master bathroom. Honestly, I was very impressed with the job this mop did on both areas.
Here's what I loved:
 - mop was easy to assemble and operate
 - refillable bottles allow me to use cleaning solution of my choice
 - with two bottles, I can have two different cleaning solutions on hand based on what type floor I'm cleaning
 - my floors were clean and streak-free
 - there was no sticky residue left on my floors
 - microfiber pads are a good size, allowing larger area to be mopped w/each swipe
 - my kids thought the mop was "cool" and actually wanted to use it
 - best of all, my floors dried very quickly!
 Cons:
 - There weren't really any cons to this product. The only thing I will mention is you need to use a little caution with the spray trigger. My first couple of sprays were a little too vigorous and I ended up spraying a little bit of the cleaning solution on my wall. This was totally user-error on my part; a lighter finger on the trigger eliminated that problem.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the performance of the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop. It will definitely become a regular tool in my cleaning routine.

The Rubbermaid Reveal Spray mop is currently available for purchase online for $29.99 plus shipping & handling, or, you can find it at The Home Depot. It will also be available at WalMart and Target in August.

Good review Kari. I could use that mop in my bathroom. It would come in handy.

Maria said...

Hi! Oh it would be great to have a "fresh" spray mop!
I used to have "the other brand" and I didn't like the smell of the cleaning liquid.
I LOVE Rubbermaid products... I just bought their carafe and love it!
I didn't know they made a mop like this!
My kitchen where my old dog stays could really use a quick mopping OFTEN! I love to bake and that adds to the necessity of a quick cleanup!
Bathroom cleaning would go much faster with this mop ~
I found your blog via the Rubbermaid blog. Thank you so much for offering to host the giveaway!

I liked your review- I could definitely see myself using one of these. : )
I'd put my wood floor cleaner (almond oil with EOs) in one bottle and my standard vinegar EO mix in the other bottle. I have hard wood floors and kids with severe allergies, so it's hard to find a decent product to use.

I follow...and this is needed in the kitchen! ...and the living room...and the bedroom...we have wood floors!
