Resorting to the instructions
I hadn' t been happy with this super squeeze mop since we purchased it over 3 years ago but struggled on, having to accept the sponge would come off all the time and wouldnt squeeze properly and who reads instructions anyway. Finally yesterday, the mophead appeared to break in half so that the two plastic plates on one side came apart yet there was no sign of a fracture. Today it literally clicked how the two plates can attach by stetching them so one slips and slots into the other and voila. This lightbulb moment coincided with me checking this website and to my shame I see I have also been using it handle up. Am over the moon and have washed the floors properly for the first time in years.
Purchased in October 2018 at Woolworths.
This mop works when you read the instructions!!
Not sure how or why most reviewers hate this mop as the the Super Squeeze isn’t just a normal mop but a squeegee and is actually very easy to use and is the most effective and efficient mop when used correctly.
The mop head is like a super absorbent squeegee or chamois and like any chamois they need to be fully squeezed to remove most water to work. (You don’t clean your car with a dripping wet chamois)
Instructions did say to use the mop with the handle facing down (a little different to the sponge type mops) but it works and works well.
...Unlike sponge mops it doesnt leave streaks or water behind and cleans all hard flooor surfaces, tile, timber etc and for floating timber floors this is the only mop you could or should use! (Too much water from sponge style mops will damage your floor). This keeps my timber floors clean and streak free - a must for anyone who loves a shiny timber floor. Oh and by the way the super squeeze is safe to use on any floor as it doesn’t leave any water residue behind so you don’t get slip hazards.
Hooray for this page. Turned this mop from a flop to being useable!
I like most reviewers found this mop to be terrible but reading 5nrough the reviews I found one that said the mop is designed to be used with the squeeze handle facing the floor (kind of illogically I must say). I tired this and instantly all my problems were fixed. No longer did the dead fly off, no longer did the ratchet thing behave strangely and I now have a useable mop. Maybe if I had read the instructions I could have avoided weeks of frustration!
At first, I had problems using the mop. Like most of the people here, I got frustrated using this thing because the sponge kept falling out. So, after going through the instructions again and reading the other reviews , I was able to mount the sponge properly and lock it in place. It's not the most efficient mop out there, but it definitely gets the job done.

Modified by a "THINKING TRADIE" and now the best mop I ever had
Bought this good looking mop but at first use I battled to keep the sponge on. Total exasperation,, and I was going to put it in the bin. Then my Husband walked in hearing my fury. If all you folk take the time (tho the manufacturers should have done better in the first place) and buy PERMA mounting Tape Super Stick Exterior. This is a double sided tape holds 22 kg and suitable outdoors it says (from Bunnings). Cut 2 lugs off either side of the sponge backing, and use the remaining to locate in the correct place with tape. Now it is lovely to...use and we just glide it on floors with ease but do not dig in to the floor. Why don't the manufacturers think of remedying problems they have . The next time we have to put a new pad on it is not going to be funny... we will have to cut off the tape and re- do. In the meantime its the best mop I had in use.
This is a good mop if you have a lot of tiles (not sure how it would go on wood or laminate) When I first got it I thought it was leaving marks on the floor, but it had some kind of chemical in it and once that washed out of the mop it was fine.
Easy to use, works well on tiles. Gets harder to scrub spots off easily.
Doesn't actually pick up dirt and hair like the description says, it just pushes it around. The handle broke after about a year where it comes apart to adjust the length.
Questions & Answers
I have this mop for a very long time,and I would like to get a new one,just the same,or even to get few sponges.
,for my old one.
Are you supposed to put a cloth or something over the mop because it leaves ripple marks on the tiles I find it difficult to use?
