Sally Mop Review
Advantages of Sally Mop
Versatile MopSally Mop is versatile and can be used anywhere where you need to clean wet floors. The oval shaped container makes it easy to store the mop almost anywhere with even little amount of space. Got a big house? you can buy a couple of these Sally Mops and store one each in your bathroom, entry-ways, kitchen, garage, work-areas, stairs etc. The Sally Mop can be used on hardwood and tile surfaces. The Sally Mop soaks up the water pretty quickly and not just move it around.
Works Fairly WellReviewers mention that the Sally Mop scrubs well and is good at drying the floors. Works very well for wooden floor.
Unique DesignThe unique collapsible design of the handle and the attractive container adds style to your house. The telescopic handle is a great alternative to the traditional bulky mops.
Absorbent Mop headSally Mop is a very thirsty mop. The Micro-fibres of the Sally Mop are more absorbent than the traditional cotton string mops which just move the dirt around. The micro-fibres absorb and lock dirt and moisture in the micro fibres. The micro-fibres are made of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide. The micro-fibres also cover a larger area compared to the traditional mops. The Sally Mop cleans well without leaving a trail of water. According to the study published by American Journal of Infection Control, micro-fiber mops remove far more germs compared to the cotton-string mop. Micro-fibre mops like the Sally Mop are known to hold water volume that is six times the weight of the micro-fiber. The Sally Mop is easy to wring too.
Disadvantages of Sally Mop
Expensive MopCompared to the other micro-fibre mops, the Sally Mop is quite expensive. Other similar micro-fibre mops cost around $13 to $17 whereas the Sally Mop costs $23.48 [if you go for the Buy 1 Get 1 Offer].
Short in LengthThe other downside of the Sally Mop is its length. User reviews mention that the length of the Sally Mop telescopic handle is shorter than the standard mop handle length. This makes it inconvenient to use for longer duration as you tend to bend when using the Sally Mop.
Ok for Light MoppingUsers complain that other mops which come with a “scratchy” attachment for removing stubborn dried food, Sally Mop lacks this feature and hence cannot be used to remove such muck. This makes the mop only okay for light mopping and drying the floor. The micro-fibers too are not very thick. Also there are a few complaints that say the mop becomes too stiff when wet. The Sally Mop [or any other micro-fiber mop] sticks to the floor and is difficult to move around, compared to cotton mop-head. the mop is hard to squeeze, some reviewers say.
A Lot of Washing RestrictionsThe microfibre fabric of the Sally Mop may get damaged if you don’t follow proper washing instructions. The Sally Mop cannot be laundered with other fabric. The microfibre head of the Sally Mop cannot be washed in hot water.
No Option to Buy Additional Mop-HeadsYou cannot buy additional mop-heads for your Sally Mops. Sally Mop is good mop but like all other mop-heads, the micro-fiber cleaning head deteriorates over time [which is like over a year] and then you cannot buy and extra mop-head. You have to buy a new mop.
Streaks the SurfaceThere are a few complaints of Sally Mop streaking the floors. Our product experts say that the streaking problem could not be because of the mop itself. Floors can leave streak marks if there is any loose dirt or dust on the floor. Suited for cleaning water spills only.
Telescopic Mop HandleThe telescopic handle of the Sally Mop is great feature as it helps you to store the mop conveniently, but the telescopic handle also has issues as it is not sturdy enough. One user review mentions that he is no longer able to extend the handle as it has got stuck. There are a few reviews that even mention about the handle coming apart! The telescopic mechanism of the mop handle reduces the life of the mop.
Lacks the “Electrostatic” FeatureMany similar mops out there in the market have dual features of cleaning liquid spills as well as dust absorption electrostatic feature. Since it lacks the electrostatic feature, the Sally Mop cannot be used to clean dirt, dust or pet hair.
