Wonderful, easy tool
PostedMay 26, 2010
I've used this mop in my motorhome for a year and think it is a great invention. It is efficient, spraying out just enough cleanser to clean without making the floor too wet; its cloths are textured well enough to rub off even sticky, muddy, or dried on gunk; and the whole thing folds out of the way into a small, upright space. Great example of European engineering!

Excellent, healthy product
PostedMay 23, 2010
I've used Citra-Solv in my camper for over a year and love its quick clean-away of dirt, goop, and crud. I've expanded from using it on the floor with Gaiam's spray mop to cleaning and sanitizing countertops, ridding the toilet of hard water rings and stains (and smells!), removing greasy hand prints on doors and appliances, and taking care of dog poo/vomit on tile and carpet. I like it so much, I've brought it into my new house as my main cleanser!

Could you give details as to how the microfiber cloths are fastened to the spray mop?

I just press the edges into the grippy corners with my finger. Each corner has an oval depression covered with foam or rubber flanges and they hold the cloth securely. You can press in as much or as little of the cloth as you want.

Are the microfiber clothes re-usable? If so, how many times can they be washed?

I've washed mine 5x in the past year and they're still going strong.

Is there any way to purchase another bottle to hold different cleaner?

I go back and forth from hardwood floors and tile. I use a different cleaner for each and would like two bottles rather than having to empty/rinse/refill/repeat.

It only has one reservoir. Maybe get a second mop?

Our hardwood floors are sealed with a soy-based sealer (not polyeurethane). Is this safe to use? Thanks! Peace...

Yes! The cloths are textured to clean any kind of dried-on or sticky dirt, but not rough enough to scratch.

Can the mop move around corners and edges easily?

I am a college student living in an apartment with a few linoleum floors. I do not have a mop and I do not like the string or sponge mops because they do not last very long before you have to replace them and I find dealing with buckets where I'm at to be a hassle. I like how the Swiffer WetJet can easily pivot around corners and edges, but I do not like how they make you pay for refills and I think this would be a cheaper solution in the long run.

This mop is excellent at pivoting around corners and into tight spots. I use it in my motorhome under built-in furniture and in niches between the walls and the slideouts, and it performs very well. I scrub at dirty spots by applying downward pressure on the handle and the textured cloths clean any gunk at any angle. No replacing refills or using buckets! I drop my cloths into the washer to clean, and one cloth lasts me at least 7-10 uses before I wash it.

How do I detach the container from the wand?

Also, the pad detached from the pole and I can't figure out how to reconnect.

I fill the reservoir with water by holding the mop directly under my kitchen faucet, and with cleaning solution by pouring it directly in while the mop is upright.

The pad is very flexible, moving almost 360 deg, so I haven't had trouble with it coming off.

If the pad broke off, perhaps it would be best to contact Gaiam and get their input. Maybe they'll send you a replacement unit.
