What Mop Covers Work with the Sh-Mop?

by Barbara 22. June 2008 06:49

Question about the product Product Code: SH-MOP Original Floor Mop w/4 Cotton Covers

Q: "What other mop heads do you have for the mop?" -Emily

Answer: This Sh-Mop kit includes one platform base (15 x 8 inches), one extending mop pole and 4 cotton covers that are elasticized to fit tightly on the base.

We offer 5 different covers for the Sh-Mop. These covers also fit the larger Bona Mop, the similar O'Cedar mops, etc. In other words, they fit any platform based mop with a 15 inch by 8 inch base.

  1. Sh-Micro Dusting Head for 15x8 Mops, Yellow. This is a 100% microfiber cover. Use wet or dry for hardwood floor, tile or laminate floor cleaning. This thinner flat woven micro fiber mop cover glides easily whether wet or dry. Elasticized.
  2. SH-Duster (Natural Cotton Loop) Cover . This is a 100% natural cotton loop dust cover for the Sh-Mop and all 15 x 8 inch based platform mops. Use wet to clean satillo and other irregular tile or dry for dusting. This cover is not elasticized but slips over both ends of the mop.
  3. Sh-Duster Synthetic Looped Dust Mop Cover This is a yellow acrylic looped dust cover. This is not elasticized but slips over both ends of the mop head.
  4. Sh-Wooly Plush Duster Cover This cover is a synthetic lambs wool duster. Use the Sh-wooly wet to wash cars, RV's, trailers, boats, etc. Highly absorbent, retains water.
  5. Sh-Wipes, the original cotton mop covers.

Thank you for your question. Remember we also offer packages of these covers in 3's, 12', 36's and 100's.

Sincerely, Barbara

Can I Use Bona Kemi Wood Floor Cleaner?

by Barbara 25. January 2008 10:57

Question about the 4 Oz. Bottle Bona Kemi Professional Hardwood Floor Cleaner Concentrate.

Q: "Hello is this recommended for a Mullican engineered wood flooring? thanks -dwright."

Answer: Yes, Bona Kemi hardwood floor cleaner is approved for use on Mullican engineered wood flooring.

Before cleaning your floors, please vacuum, sweep or use ar Sh-Duster to get sand and grit off before mopping. Wipe up spills with a microfiber cloth dampened in water or diluted Bona floor cleaner. Never use oil soaps or wax on your polyurethane finished floors.

At least once a month, clean your floors preferably with a Sh-Mop with soft cotton terry covers or microfiber covers. Spray on a small amount of floor cleaner. Never use a soaking wet mop on your flooring.

The advantages of Shmops is that the covers machine wash and dry. This means you never risk scratching floors with dirt or grit embedded in fibers. And you save money over disposable covers.

Thanks for your question. Enjoy your new floors.

Sincerely,
Barbara

Which Dust Mop Covers are Best for My Needs?

by Barbara 28. October 2001 12:49
Q: "I wish to purchase a Sh-Mop and several accessories from your company. I would like more information about the Sh-Duster dusting covers and the microfiber mop covers. I have read and understand that one is a yarn-duster and the other is similar to a Swiffer, but what is the functional difference between the two? What aspect of these two items would make one a better choice than the other for a consumer? Thank you for your assistance with this. I look forward to a speedy reply because my dust bunnies are about to revolt. Thanks. Karen"

Answer: The yellow duster cover is long strands of acrylic yarn that can get into corners. The Sh-Micro is more like a Swiffer as is the Bona full sized microfiber cover as they have a static charge as long as you don't use fabric softener. The cotton Sh-Duster won't attract as much of the finer grit but will wash cleaner as cotton lets go of dust and particles more easily than the acrylic.

The cotton Sh-Duster works well wet if you have grooves in tile. You can use the Bona microfiber covers or the Sh-Micro cover wet or dry. Both are woven so they will move well across flooring if it is wet or dry.

Comment from Customer: "Thanks for such a prompt reply! I think I will order the yarn mop for everyday collection of the dust-bunnies (actually, they are dust-beagles, and quite large) and get the micro-fiber cloth cover for thorough dust removal before damp mopping. Does this sound reasonable based on your experience? I have hardwood floors all over my house. I noticed the dustmop comes in both cotton and synthetic fibers. Is there a reason to select one over the other? Thanks again,Karen. P.S. I checked many sites and yours had the best prices by far. It was also one of the more professional-looking sites."

Answer: As I mentioned before, I think the acrylic is better at grabbing the bunnies but the cotton will wash "out" better. For hardwood, I'd probably go with the acrylic.Thanks for the compliments. We try to have it be a practical user-friendly site. Barbara
