Best type of floor cleaners/mops etc?

I have a cleaner (so grateful for her), who uses a mop, the old fashioned type. I really dont like it, as I think they just spread filth, but she insists on it. I would personally clean the floor with a cloth on my hands and knees, but of course, I am lazy clearly, hence my need for a cleaner.

Anyway, was thinking of possibly buying another type of mop or device for her to clean the floor (laminate) with, one that is easy for her to use and easy to clean and pack away. I really dont like the mop we have, as it is always wet and dirty looking.

What can you advise?

Thanks in advance. xxx

Anyone got any ideas? (I asked Aggie a similar question on the webchat but she didn't answer!) - I use a Vileda, same thing but j-cloth strips instead of string but I know what you mena, it just feels like you're spreading the dirt around!

OOOh, I am loving the Lakeland cleaners. Thank you.

I did buy her some floor cleaning wipes, as when I did clean the floor myself, I would just get on my hands and knees and give it a once over, at least I got into all the corners etc. But alas, I cant expect her to do that. Every week she leaves the dirty mop out to dry out and it just hangs around taking up space ( I know there are worse things in the world).
