Which one shall I buy ? I need a new one and want one that works well and leaves floors relatively dry . I can’t see past the marketing rubbish so a recommendation would be great .

I've just bought a Vileda Turbo Mop and am very happy with it.

I have the vileda turbo spin mop too, it’s really good. More expensive than most but you can spin/wring the mop so it uses less water and dries faster.

I really like flat mops, you can clean a floor in no time without the need for a bucket of water, especially if you're cleaning pretty often and the floor isnt filthy. I have this one from Amazon - I just soak the microfibre pad in hot water and wring it with my hands, drop it on the floor and attach the mop to it and swish around the floor in no time (I mainly use it for the kitchen, you might need to use another clean one for each room). If the floor is wet I use another dry one to dry the floor but honestly it dries in no time as it doesnt hold a lot of water like a tradtitonal mop. Then I throw the pads in the washing machine, dry on the radiator over night and use again the next day. Five minute job maximum.
Mine is a spray mop but I dont bother with the spray most of the time.

Agree flat one with cloth head that you can soak and wring in the sink. Also they are neat to store in cupboard. Mine was £9.95 with removable microfibre thing from Amazon. Previous one lasted 15 years.
Difficult to get excited about a mop but I am quite pleased.

I broke my spinning mop, I'd only used it 3 times. I have an ordinary vileda mop, think it's called supermocio. I also have the vileda spray mop for giving the place a quick one over.

I seriously recommend this flat mop. It's got a clever bucket that makes it easy to control how wet your mop (and therefore your floor) is.

I couldn't make up my mind so I have a old fashioned mop and bucket from Asda, one that you can take the shaggy head off and chuck in the wash and also a spray mop for quick clean ups.

I use the spray mop daily and is great but feel the old-fashioned mop gets the floor cleaner.

Another 👍 for Vileda Turbo mop, the spin function leaves floors quite dry, and the mop head can go in machine

Flat head mop, heads can be washed in washing machine and tumble dried and I have even made my own extra mop heads.

No bucket storage required, just spray floor and mop. I did try a spray mop but I didn't like that you couldn't really control where it sprayed including my skirting boards and sometimes a bit up the wall.

Vileda turbo mop. You can keep pressing the foot pedal if you want an almost dry floor.

I think it was on offer this week in wilko for £17.50 (I paid £30 for mine)

Old fashioned mop and galvanised steel bucket. The bucket will outlive me, mop head substantial and washable, I replace every few years. I use washing soda and whichever aromatherapy oil takes my fancy. The floor probably gets wetter than modern systems but I shuffle around with an old tea towel on my feet to dry it off. I'm on a cleaning rota at our scout hut and I find the plasticy things there really flimsy.

Whatever work horse mop you get, I also recommend Swiffer (or similar) for quick cleaning between full mopping

Aha, I knew MN would be the place to come for recommendations. What did you go for in the end @CuntingSeal?
