We did not test two other finalists: the Twist & Shout Mop and the Rubbermaid Self-Wringing Ratchet Twist Mop. Though both have top-notch user ratings, we had concerns. At the time we were ordering test models, the Twist & Shout was out of stock at Amazon and the other top retailers, leading us to worry about availability. As it follows the basic spin-mop style (in function and size, of both mop and bucket) we suspect we would have rejected it anyway. But it will be included in our next test if the supply problem has been solved. The Rubbermaid is physically similar to the Joy Mangano, so we expect it would suffer some of the same shortcomings. It is also a blended-fiber mop—not fully microfiber—meaning it is likely designed to both mop up messes and spread floor coatings; for this guide, we focused on mops designed exclusively for mopping up messes, at which pure microfiber is tops for home use.
Consider hanging hooks or clips onto the wall that are useful for keeping certain cleaning tools, like a broom, mop, dust pan or bucket up off the floor of a utility closet. This frees up floor space for larger items, like a vacuum cleaner or step stool.

Men’s shoes typically take up more space than women’s, making it important to utilize the allotted space more carefully. Take advantage of all unused space, like the section under this window seat, to create more storage space. The open cabinetry makes the shoes easily visible and within reach, and the rich, dark cabinetry gives the closet a masculine look. Design by Clos-ette

I’m grading on a curve, since in the larger scheme of things, this is probably a 2-3 star kind of thing- and not a particularly quality nor heavy-duty cabinet. 4 stars, since it meets expectations and I pretty much knew what I was buying.
Before you can wet mop, start with a dry cleaning to remove bigger debris. That means either sweeping with a broom, dusting with a dust mop, or using a good vacuum cleaner designed for hard floors. We cover vacuums in separate reports on upright vacuums, canister vacuums, stick vacuums and robotic vacuums. Also, if you really need a deep cleaning, we recommend some steam mops for that task as well.
The O-Cedar’s wringer is a marvelous piece of engineering. Containing no moving parts, it’s instead a flexible one-piece plastic basket, pierced and folded like origami. When you press the mop into it, the bottom flexes downward and the sides move inward, squeezing out the water. It performs beautifully, and compared with the spin-wringers in our test, it’s far simpler and inherently more durable—no unlocking and relocking and no multiple moving parts like pedals, axles, and bearings. This is also more stable—it stays still when wringing; others wanted to skid across the floor.

When looking at mops, it’s important to consider the job it’ll be doing — and the wringer with which it will be used — for the best results. Additionally, both looped and cut-end mops are sized and measured in ounces (oz.). On this scale, the higher the ounce rating a mop has, the larger its head will be.
I spent nearly an hour on the phone with Ron Wright, who has spent the past 25 years as CEO of WrightCo Environmental Services, a consulting and custodial-training firm that exclusively serves the child-care industry. An expert on sanitation and sterilization best practices, he offered deep insight on mop styles, proper mopping techniques, and methods of minimizing cross-contamination when cleaning kitchens and bathrooms. I found Ron through my own reporting, but was gratified when I later reached out to ACE New York, a highly regarded nonprofit that trains formerly homeless people for custodial jobs: They suggested I contact one of their best training partners—Ron Wright.
