I was really pleased when I was asked if I would review some cleaning products for Oxo, indeed I was like kid in a sweet shop trying to decide what I’d like to review! In the end I plumped for the Roller Mop because although I do like my current one it’s heads seem to wear out really quickly as the sponge is so open and porous. Then, as I have lots of hard to reach places that I end up having to use the vacuum cleaner on, I chose the Microfibre Extendable Duster. So then I had to find a way of conveying the usage of these items as snap shots were not really going to cut the mustard with a cleaning review, so I decided to make a video – yep sacrificing my dignity for the enhancement of your knowledge, I hope you appreciate my selflessness here as I do hate the sound of my own voice contrary to my family’s belief!
The Roller Mop features non-slip handles for easy wringing and can absorb 450 mls of water. There are scrubbing stips on the mop head which look really robust and there is also a bulit in antibacterial treatment to stop bacterial growth and odours. Durable rollers squeeze the water out of the mop and to change the head you just push the wringing handle forward. The mop retails at £25. I found the mop much lighter than my current mop even though it is bigger, due to the aluminium pole. The mop head is also bigger and therefore the time spent cleaning the floor is reduced. My only niggle was that the floor didn’t seem as dry after washing with my old mop but I probably didn’t plunge the wringing handle enough to fully dry the mop head (I was making a video after all!) I do think that the mop head looks like it will last much longer than my old mop head and the scrubbing strips were really good on stubborn stains on the floor. The Microfibre Extendable Duster has an aluminium light weight body and a 270° lockable angled head so that you can dust on one side and when dirty flip over so that you can use the other side. You can lock the duster in the vertical position to clean ceiling vents or at a right angle to clean on top of book shelves etc. The microfiber duster is detachable and washable in a washing machine but I think a good shaking outside will suffice for a long time! I loved using this duster to getting in between the struts on my staircase and is excellent for skirting and all the hard to reach places that otherwise only a vacuum can reach. Having put my back out once using my mother’s vacuum cleaner to vacuum her cornices, I think this telescopic duster with its reach of 137 cm/54″ is a god send. It’s like a feather duster only it absorbs the dust rather than spreading it everywhere! The duster is priced at £15.
