I am always looking for items that I can use to help me save money. Especially when it comes to household cleaning items that I can use around the house. Do you know how much mess one family of six can make? Let me tell you now that it is a lot. I am cleaning my house on a daily basis, and with two very little boys who think that their food taste better when it’s eaten off of the floor versus on the table, I am consistently mopping my floor to make sure it’s clean enough.

My old mop of preference was the Swiffer Wet Jet. It allowed me the convenience of not having to use an old fashioned mop and a mop bucket. Because let’s face it, the thought of putting my hands in that nasty mop bucket water gives me the skeevies. The Swiffer was positive in that aspect, but in retrospect it wasn’t frugal or environmentally safe because:

  • The mop pads were throwaways. Meaning I was creating excess waste and spending money on refill pads.
  • The cleaning solution came in plastic containers. This could have been good except for the fact that the plastic containers weren’t refillable, or even reusable for that matter.
  • It ran on batteries. This aspect could have been good if I owned rechargeable batteries, but I don’t.

I was given the opportunity to review the Libman Freedom Spray Mop vial Mom Bloggers Club. At first I was thinking “oh great, a mop.” I have a tendency to be skeptical and a little sarcastic when it comes to trying out new items. When I find a good product I’m loyal to a fault and unwilling to switch brands or products. I just new I was going to use this mop ruthlessly to see if it held up to my standards.

I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled this mop out and used it.

I am just going to go through one-by-one and highlight all of the positive aspects of the Libman Freedom Spray Mop.

  • I have the freedom to use any cleaning solution. Yes, that’s right. The Libman Freedom Spray Mop comes with a refillable bottle that allows me to use my own cleaning solution over-and-over again without purchasing pre-packaged cleaning solution.
  • I am no longer obligated to use the costly, disposable pads. The Libman Freedom Spray Mop is unique in that it uses a reusable microfiber pad that can be machine washed up to 50 times. So that means once I am done mopping my floors, all I have to do is throw the pad in the washer and reuse it.
  • I don’t have to worry about batteries anymore because it has a trigger sprayer that allows me to control how much liquid is coming out. I no longer have to run around the house looking for batteries with enough power in them to mop my floors. This handy little trigger sprayer makes everything automatic.

Take a look at how thick the reusable microfiber pad is:

I have to say that I am converted. My poor Swiffer is now sitting in my closet. Waiting for new batteries. And some new pads. And some cleaning fluid. Poor thing will be waiting there for awhile because the Libman Freedom Spray Mop did a really good job on my floors.

  1. Oh I need this!!! I am using a Swiffer and I don’t really like it but I don’t like the mop and bucket either. The previous owners left a Swiffer Wet Jet but I never used it. This seems like it would work well for me. Most of our floors are the kind you use a mop for so I need something that can get the job done well with little effort.

    My best tip….I will buy the big jugs of cleaners and just refill the spray bottles, it is less expensive than buying the spray bottles over and over….that way I also don’t throw away a spray bottle every time I finish it off.

  2. This looks like a great product. I like being able to use my own solutions and not having to buy refills that are expensive.

  3. I follow you on Twitter @nizzle73099

  4. I involve my kids in the cleaning duties by handing out chores each week. They do various jobs like, sweeping the kitchen floor, wiping down windows or mirrors, vacuuming the floor, cleaning the sinks, toilets, etc. Sometimes they enjoy helping out but most of the time, they are trying to get out of it! lol

  5. I would love one of these because I used the old fashioned type of wring mop with gloves of course.
    To save money on cleaning items I buy all that stuff at Dollar General and use coupons it is usually the cheapest place around.

  6. My best money saving cleaning tip is to use microfiber cloths. They are inexpensive, last forever, and a wet microfiber cloth will clean almost anything.


  7. I save money on cleaning supplies around the house by using natural, inexpensive products like baking soda and vinegar. Vinegar does a great job on glass and baking soda and vinegar together does the best job cleaning out a garbage disposal.


  8. My best money saving tip: Disinfecting sponges. Wet sponge and microwave for 30 seconds. I despise sponges. Buy them constantly because they develop an odor. I used to spray with bleach after each use but it makes the sponge deteriorate. Found out about microwaving and amazingly it works and removes the odor. It saves me money from constantly buying sponges and saves the environment because I don’t know how long it takes for the sponges to decompose. Simple but effective!

  9. I am still using the old mop. This would be a nice upgrade. Of course, I use coupons to cut cost on my cleaning items. I look at the sales paper and match my coupons up so I can save more.

  10. I keep my house clean by doing a chore a day so when the weekend comes I don’t have so many chores to do.

  11. Throughout the day, I keep the house clean by doing a few small things at a time. I usually put a load of laundry in every morning and then move on to the kitchen as there is always work to do in there!
    I try to do some stuff everyday so that I can relax on the weekend when there is no school or work.

  12. I save money on cleaning supplies by watching the local ads and using coupons when I find them. If you catch a week where the coupon works with a weekly ad, you can save a lot of money! I sometimes get my hands on another coupon and buy more than one of the product so that I have more than one. If I find a great deal, why not get as many as possible at that price.

  13. Money saving tip, is Lemon’s natural inexpensive products you can use it to clean up your microwave, to clean the garbage disposal.

  14. My money saving cleaning tip is using baking soda and vinegar to clean with 🙂

  15. The way I save money on cleaning supplies around the house is strictly purchasing through BOGO deals combined with a coupon. If it is not under a dollar (name brand only) then this momma ain’t buyin’ it!

  16. I already follow you on Twitter as @momfiles

  17. The way I keep the house clean throughout the day is to keep my toddler baby-gated in the family room and wait until the evening to do the full cleaning. I also limit the amount of toys he can have at any given time. I also keep washing dishes and loads of laundry to avoid a pile-up.

  18. My daughters are teens so they have a set list of chores they are expected to do on certain days. We are all in this together! 🙂
