Spray Mop DIY Refill Cleaning Solution

Quite a few years ago I started using less cleaning products full of chemicals and started using more natural products. Not only did I find they cleaned just as good but they were also very easy and very inexpensive to make. This Spray Mop DIY Refill Cleaning Solution is only 3 ingredients and cleans like a champ. Thank you O-Cedar for sponsoring this post and making it possible for me to share your awesome ProMist Spray Mop and my DIY Refill Cleaning Solution.

A few months ago I asked my facebook friends what steam mop I should buy. They all told me not to waste my money and to find something with a microfiber pad. The only thing I hated about those regular microfiber cloth mops was having to touch the cloth so many times to re-wet it and rinse it out. It was a little yucky! So, I was really excited to try the O-Cedar ProMist Microfiber Spray Mop and I was even more excited to find that it was exactly what I was hunting for.

We’re renting our house and rentals can have a poor reputation about their cleanliness. I hate thinking about all the renters who have been in this house before me, so I make sure to clean all the surfaces thoroughly. I’ve had some personal experiences with unclean rentals. Anyway, my cleaning solution is very simple and it’s things you already have in your kitchen. This cleaning solution is best for glazed tile floors.

Spray Mop DIY Refill Cleaning Solution 

2-3 tablespoons white vinegar
2 drops dish soap
warm water

It really couldn’t be simpler. Add the vinegar and dish soap to the refillable bottle then fill it the rest of the way up with warm water. The refillable bottle is simple to take off using the 1-touch release button and it easily clicks back into place. My favorite thing about the ProMist Spray Mop is that you can use your favorite cleaning solution and don’t have to commit to one cleaner.

Here’s a closer look at the microfiber pad. The red area is the scrub zone to remove even more dirt and grime.

As I was checking out the O-Cedar ProMist at WalMart there were 2 other women in the aisle trying to decide which mop to get. I was reading about the ProMist and shared some of the information I read about it. Guess what they walked away with? I hope they like it as much as I do.

I’ve been getting my boys to help out more around the house so they have those skills as men. They’ve been taking turns doing the dishes and sweeping the floor, but they haven’t been mopping. Mainly because I hadn’t taught them how to do it yet. The mist sprayer is what sold them on trying it out. After showing them how to position and release the spray they took over the mopping.

Ammon’s favorite part was the spray, of course. He probably over did it a little but he got the job done.

Zach likes that the head swivels 360 degrees so you can basically reach anywhere. It makes it so much easier to get close to baseboards, cabinets and the sliding glass door.

I love the handle. It’s so much more comfortable than a straight pole and it’s easy to squeeze the trigger to release the cleaning solution.

After mopping, clean up is super easy. Just empty the bottle, rinse it out, and let it dry before storing. As for the microfiber pad, just toss it in the washing machine and reuse next time. I air dry mine.

Since it’s quick and easy to use I think I can add mopping to their list of chores now. That’s another win for me and they just learned a new skill. #OCedarClean

    Let’s hear it for the boys! Great job, mama teaching them not only how to do the mopping, but that it needs doing.

    I love this mop! It is so quick and easy to use. Of course, my favorite thing is that you can use your own cleaning solution. I’m like you, I prefer to make my own. I can’t wait to try your recipe – thanks for sharing it!

    I really like this mop! I need a lightweight mop for my bathroom floors plus, I like how you can wash the microfiber pad.

    Very interesting. I may have to try this out. I like your “recipe” for floor cleaner. I’ve been trying out some homemade cleaning recipes, too and they really work!

    I also like the OCedar mops and use them with this homemade solution. I have had one for several years that has a microfiber pad that slips over the mop end and both sides of it can be used. When one side is dirty just flip it over and use the other side. I put the solution in a spray bottle and spray by hand as I clean. I have several replacement pads that I change out when one is dirty and I just wash them all together.
