I have a confession to make. The Hubsand bought a Swiffer Mop thing a couple of years ago, and I flat out refused to use it. For years! My excuse was that I did not want to have to buy "maxi pads" for my mop. So I would haul out the icky looking sponge mop, or just a regular sponge, and fill a bucket or the kitchen sink with sudsy water and spend 45 minutes or so cleaning the floor. Then The Hubsand bought a case of (get this!) pre-moistened Swiffer mop pads. Eeegad! The waste, the expense! And then I spent approximately three minutes mopping the kitchen floor. Phooey. It is too dang easy.
Can I possibly justify the natural resource consumption of a disposable mop pad with the savings in treated water usage?
