CLOSED ~ Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop Review and Giveaway!


I have to say that there are very few companies that I really love. Rubbermaid is one of these companies. I love their products. I have never been disappointed with any Rubbermaid product I have bought or used. They just make quality products.

So when I was asked to review and giveaway one of their new Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mops, I jumped at the chance because it was Rubbermaid. I recently reviewed another mop and I liked it but I knew I had to try the Rubbermaid as well.

I have a few different types of these mops in my house now but I am always on the search for the perfect mop. Until I get a cleaning lady or my cats grow thumbs and actually do something, I am destined to clean the floors.
The hardwood floors are the bane of my existence. I hate cleaning them because they never get totally clean. I currently use a top brand mop but the problem is that while it is good, it is not great. It also costs money because you have to buy special disposable pads and cleaning liquid. The other mop I reviewed was good but not great either.

The Rubbermaid mop was not assembled but it was easy to put together. I did it and never had to ask hubby to help. It came with 3 Microfiber cleaning pad and 2 refillable bottles as well.

The first thing I noticed about the Rubbermaid, in comparison to the other mop I reviewed, was the mop head was studier and larger. The pad fit perfectly and it held tight. I liked that because with the disposable type mop I have, I find the pads slip. When that happens, then I have to change out the pad.

The Rubbermaid Reveal has a trigger and it is at the perfect height to squeeze when you need more liquid. The whole mop felt sturdy, was of good quality and cleaned well.

You can use the mop wet or dry. I used one pad to sort of dry mop the floors to pick up the cat hair, my hair and the dust bunnies that collect on the hardwood floors. Then I switched out the pads and started wet mopping. It was easy, it was quick and I had no issues with the mop. The mop head swivels so you can reach everywhere. It cleaned well and my floors looked nice afterwards.

Because you can use your own cleaning solution, you decide what is safe and proper for the floors you are cleaning. We have a mix of tile and hardwood. I usually use the same solution on both but the Rubbermaid site had some suggestions for cleaning solutions. It was great because I was able to use one just for hardwood floors and one for the tile. And the best part of using your own solution, is the money you will save. I spend quite a bit of money on the solution I use with my current mop so it's nice to know that I won't have that expense.

I also won't have the expense of buying disposable pads. The Rubbermaid Reveal pads are washable so you can use them over and over. The site says up to 100 times and that is pretty darn good. The refillable bottles are dishwasher safe as well.

The Reveal is safe on all hard floors including vinyl, hardwood, laminate and tile. There are no batteries which also saves you money. It is light and easy to use. I would totally recommend this product. If you hate cleaning like I do and are trying to find easier ways to do it, then this will help. It is also better than other similar mops because it will save you money and cut down on unnecessary waste. I always try to be "green" and this is a good way to start.

And for only $29.99, it is a great deal. You can purchase your own today online or find the Rubbermaid Reveal at Target, Wal Mart and Home Depot. Or, you can enter my giveaway and try your luck. Yes, my dears, I have one of these babies up for grabs just for you!! YAY!! You know the drill. Read the rules and enter. This is one giveaway you want to win!! Good Luck!

  46. I must say that my favorite item would be this mop! Probably mostly because I am wanting it so bad! I am over eight months pregnant and the only way I have of mopping the floors right now is to get down on my hands and knees with a old rag. So yeah would love to win this mop! :-)

  58. I love the "green"ness of this mop! Not only do you not have to throw the pads in the trash after every use... but it actually RECOMMENDS chemical-free cleaning! ;-) I also like the tube brush... looks perfect for cleaning the ever-increasing supply of 'perma' straws and drink spouts...
