Busy Mum's Guide to Mopping: Rubbermaid Reveal Review and Giveaway

I'm not a big fan of mopping.

Especially with a toddler in the house.

Sophie, on the other hand, loves it. What's not to love? She gets to follow Mum around, pops her hands in the bucket of soapy water, and slip-slides around behind me as I go.

Very cute, I'll admit. But it makes a relatively quick and easy chore a lot more complicated and time consuming than it should be.

So I was VERY pleased to receive this mop - the Rubbermaid Reveal Mop - a couple of weeks ago.

This mop has a removable spray bottle attached - I can fill it with any cleaning solution I have in the cupboard, and then I just spray and go.

No bucket of water. I literally just pull the trigger at the top of the mop, it sprays the cleaner on the floor, and I mop right over it. Done.

Oh man I love this mop.

I think you'll love it too. It's RRP is $39.95 and is available at selected Bunnings stores around Australia. You can also go here for more info. There other benefits you'll like (e.g you can wash the mop head, so you don't have to spend more $$ to replace it).

My only problem now is I don't really have an excuse to not clean the floor anymore.. hope the Husband isn't reading this post ;)

$39.95 is a good price for the satisfaction you get from using it. But I also have 1 to giveaway if you're interested :)

  1. That would make moping so much easier for me then having to get my husband to do since I find it hard to lift a bucket.

    You can contact me on twitter sweetie

    (((( Hugs )))) XXXX Kisses XXXX

  2. Mopping is such a drag - but it has to be done. I love these mops and would love to win oone for my mum as I think it would really help her not having to bend so much. Thanks :O)

  3. Wow, Marissa these look awesome. Win one or not, I think I will be buying one on the weekend. Darren is usually our floor mopper-er (don't think that's a word but anyhoo!!!!), and I hate having to go downstairs get the bucket, fill it up, come back upstairs, battle with the kids,keep them out of the way. To have it all in there would be wonderful. What a great product

  4. Oh wow!!!! I have so much floor to clean, and I have to be so careful not to use too much water on it as it is laminate...This would be so much easier, and I might actually mop my floors once a week instead of once every 2 months LOL...I hate the mop and bucket and would LOVE one of these!!!


  5. I'm not much of a mopper but I really should be. We have floorboards but they should be called ignoreboards. This mop looks fab.

  6. I actually already love mopping, but am not as motivated in this heat to lug a heavy bucket of water around, so the spray action making it lighter would make me more inclined to do it more often and more quickly.

  7. I love this!!!!!
    We have white tiles right throughout the house and i hate lugging a mop and bucket around....not to mention what it does to my back!!!
    This would make life sooooo much easier!!!!

  8. Oh my! I so want one of these mops!!
    I mop daily 3 year old loves spilling things..and to use this without having to fill a bucket for a small mess would be great!

    You can find me at

  9. I NEED one of these mops!! With three boys it is a necessity, my poor Vileda cant keep up with them :S

  10. That mop looks awesome! I don't mop as often as I should. Partly because I'm too lazy to fill the bucket and lug it around, but mostly because I'm the biggest klutz it the world and am prone to kicking the bucket over (been there, done that!). This would make the job SO much easier!

    You can get me on Facebook or Twitter.

  11. I have my grandkids visit regularly, so let's just say there are lots of times a spray mop would come in handy for spot cleaning!

    I have emailed you my contact details

  12. Ooh this looks great! I hate mopping but have just moved into a house with wooden floorboards, so this prize will give me a good incentive to get cleaning!

  13. This mop would definately make me more inclined to mop my floors especially as my Miss 5 is such a messy little person and my whole house is timber floors!

  14. And the winner is...

    #3 Lisa Robertson!!

    Congratulations Lisa, I'll send you an email to organise delivery of your mop :)
