Despite their simple use, not all mops are created equal. The New York Times takes 15 mops to task and reviews and rates them based on tests on three surfaces — sealed hardwood, ceramic tile and linoleum — using a bucket of warm, soapy water or the cleaning solution that came with the mop. They assessed how well each one cleaned, how much liquid it absorbed and how easy it was to maneuver.
With all the mops, however, sweeping or vacuuming the floor first made for a better experience. After all, you don’t ask your broom to mop up — neither should you ask your mop to sweep.
