Here at MopReviews.com we recommend microfibers mops for a variety of reasons. Not only are they the most absorbent of all available mop pad types, they also offer excellent cleaning ability on a variety of surfaces.
Microfiber mop heads can absorb up to eight times their own weight in water, and the fibers, which are thinner than a human hair, have the ability to grab hold of tiny particles of dirt and grime and hold onto them until a mop pad is cleaned. So microfiber mops are the most versatile mop head, the best for spills and greasy stains, and generally manufactured to be highly durable, able to be machine washed and re-used hundreds of times before they wear out.
