Sponge Replacements Rubbish
After trying to fit the Sabco sponge refills (unsuccessfully) I've decided NEVER to buy anything made by Sabco. So far wasted more than $40. I now find it cheaper to hire a Cleaner.
Sabco Lightning Mop.. Poor quality rusty Prouct
Sabco Lightning Mop had a big brand name but has no value for money at all. Do not waste your money.
The design is faulty and your money will be heading to the drain in less than 6 months.
I bought mine in 2017
The long handle is made of poor pained metallic that will be rusted in less than 6 months, it will be broken from its base. You cannot fix it or repair it at all. It is USELESS.
Simply the long handle react with the water very badly and the poor quality metallic handle will be rusty and broken and fall off its hard plastic base. End of the story and your money.
Sabco Lightning Mop has a very Poor Product quality
How Sabco should fix it. Change the metallic handle to a wooden handle and design a longer nick to the base that does not hold the water
I agree completely with the reviews on here about the mop refill. I have used sabco mops for over 30 yrs and I used to get a year or more out of the sponge. But now it looks like these sponges have become disposable after 1 or 2 weeks . They should have a use by date on them of 2 weeks after first using them. They are expensive to be buying them every 2 weeks or so. My sponge on the mop will disentegrate after 2 or 3 uses leaving yellow bits of sponge all over the floor. Its disgusting. Back in the day if you bought a faulty product complained to the manufacturer they would send you out a new one plus extras. It looks like sabco owes a lot of people new and better replacements if this was still the case. Making things cheaper and nastier sabco ,will end up with you loosing sales bigtime in this case.
The sponges fall apart after around only 6 uses
I have used Sabco sponge mops for decades. In the last 3 years or so, the sponges are of very poor quality. They degrade after a few uses and seem to "rot" and fall apart, leaving bits all over the floor and then no "mopping" ability ie won't hold water. I always rinse them out thoroughly after use and air dry them. I use small amount of standard detergent in the water. Basically used them exactly the same way I have for decades. Sponges used to last over a year, now lucky to last a couple of months. I will throw out my 3 Sabco mop handles and try some other method. The sponges used to be very good but are now simply expensive for very poor quality ($13 for 2).
The sponge is expensive, short lasting rubbish.
The mop principle function is fine but the sponges are shoddy, short lived and ridiculously expensive. Maybe someone out there can fill the breach?
