SAUGATUCK, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Hurricane 360 Spin Mop is a mopping system; it comes with a micro fiber mop and a bucket with a special staining basket that you spin with a foot pedal to get rid of excess water.
Liz Wilson, a homeowner who claims to have the dirtiest floor in West Michigan, agreed to test it out. She has three messy dogs and often tracks in dirt while getting wood for the fireplace. She mops every day with an old fashion mop and janitor-style bucket that squeezes the mop.
First thing Liz did not like about the Spin Mop is that the bucket seemed to be too light and it moved around every time you pushed the foot pedal. More water might help make the bucket heavier.
She didn't think the mop head itself picked up dirt very well, and it stayed on the mop when you gave it a spin.
You also have to spin it several times using the foot pedal, because we found our mop was often still wet. We had to spin it over and over to get it to wring out.
The other thing we noticed, the commercial makes it look like the mop head itself spins, almost like it's battery powered. But it only spun around when you mopped against a wall, but it barely spun. We thought it would spin more vigorously and help scrub the floors better.
It's not that the Hurricane Spin Mop was bad, it just wasn't as good as what Liz uses. Other people might think it's great, but there were a few things that disappointed us.
We bought our Spin Mop at Bed Bath and Beyond for $39.99.
