A special thank you goes out to Brillo for sending my family the Brillo Sweep & Mop along with refills for my family to test out and review. They are also sponsoring this giveaway, and opinions expressed in this post are that of my own.
So I have a confession to make, my floors get dirty. Between 5 people and the foot traffic that comes with the group, the dust created from skin cells, and the hair that falls off of those human bodies, well it is a constant battle.
Thankfully there are tools out there created to help aid in this war against dirt, and one of those innovations is the Brillo Sweep & Mop.
I am already a fan of Brillo’s Sponges for dish cleanup, so I was excited to see another product created with convenience in mind. The Brillo Sweep & Mop is made to handle 2 jobs and is ready to be put to work with disposable wet and dry pads.
Assembly was easy by simply placing the handle into the top. To get started, I laid the rough surface bottom of the Brillo Sweep & Mop on top of a pad and it attached to it.
If you are using a Dry Pad with the Brillo Sweep & Mop, just glide it across the surface in back and forth motion to pick up dirt, small crumbs, and hair. It really is easy to navigate and gets up close to walls and door ways and under tables and chairs with the 360 rotation.
When using it as a mop I suggest first Sweeping with a dry pad, and then grabbing either a package of Wet Pads or Deep Clean Refills made with Estracell.
For smaller areas or quick clean up, I suggest using the Lemon Scented Wet Pads. First remove the plastic cover and film, then open the package up and lay the Brillo Sweep & Mop on top of the Sponge Pad (Then replace the plastic cover to keep them moist for future use).
You can start moping immediately and one pad will cover a decent size room. Definitely take your time moving the mop over a rougher surface.
For a tougher job and larger surface, Brillo suggests using the Deep Clean Sponge. First fill a bucket with warm water, add cleanser and use that to wet the mop.
I recommend watching this video for the most effective way to use this product.
To fit it into the bucket, push the blue handle down. To ring out the sponge, place the Brillo Sweep & Mop over the bucket and push the blue handle down again.
You would then repeat this process to wet it again. As you can see, these sponges do a great job of picking up all the dirt and hair I was complaining about.
Plus based on my experience the Brillo Sweep & Mop Wet Pads and Deep Clean Sponges are gentle on multiple surfaces such as laminate, sealed wood, tile, and even slate.
It did an excellent job in removing sticky spots off of my kitchen floor from drinks that had been spilled while making their way to the sink.
Any tips or hacks for making floor cleaning easier around your home?
