The granddaddy of all spray mops, the Swiffer WetJet (Est. $25), has managed to retain its popularity over the years. Reviewers say it’s extremely easy to use: When empty, the solution dispenser pops out with the push of a button, and the disposable pads have Velcro-type attachments so you don’t have to bend to attach them. Just make sure the Velcro side is face up, place the mop head on the pad and push down lightly.
In addition to the adjustable grippers, there is a hook that can be used to hang a slotted handle tool or brush. By using this rack to hang mops and wet brooms you can help ensure that these tools will dry out properly to prevent bacteria from growing.
Like most microfiber mop pads, these O-Cedar pads are machine-washable, and the manufacturer says they should withstand about 100 trips through the washer before being replaced with an O-Cedar Microfiber Flip Mop Refill (Est. $9).

Some also say the mop head comes loose from the handle too easily.
