Spontex Microfibre Quick Spray Flat Mop 

What it says it does…

The Spontex is a micro fibre flat mop with easy spray system that claims to be a speedy, easy and efficient way to clean almost any sort of flooring – laminate, wood, vinyl, stone or tiles.


What our tester thought…

'Although I am normally wary of gadgets (even the simplest ones manage to defeat me), I followed the Spontex instructions successfully first time. Having filled the bottle with a mixture of water and a squirt of detergent and fitted it back on to the handle as shown on the packaging, I used the lever on the handle to spray the tiles on my kitchen floor as I mopped. The wide mop swivelled around to go under furniture and right up close to the skirting board. The long handle saved having to bend over at an uncomfortable angle – so no aching back! Job done, I detached the micro fibre pad (again a very simple process), rinsed it under the tap and hung it out to dry. My only criticism is that the mop is a bit too long to stow away easily in my broom cupboard. I would certainly recommend it to anyone with any of the floorings specified by the manufacturer, including wood. Normally I would not use water on my parquet floors but the spray on this mop is so fine that it would not be a problem.'
