I bought this mop over a month ago, and I had such high hopes for it. I thought I was using it wrong, so I had my son who was visiting, give it a try. He immediately said, "what kind of mop is this"? The mop is pretty--and that is it. The design is poor, the wringing action is horrible, because it does not wring the mop out. I ended up wringing it with my hands, anyway, and it was still dripping water. And, it has an extra added bonus of blue water with lint in it. I have never, ever, had a problem with a Rubbermaid product in my life, so this is very disappointing. Due to this I don't mop as often, because it makes my hands and arms very sore, so I am now in the market for a new mop.
