The 7 Best Spin Mops Of 2024, Tested And Reviewed

Spin mops are unique because they are fast-absorbing and usually come with a centrifuge to wring out excess water, so you can focus on cleaning the mess at hand rather than your mop head. “One may want to purchase a spin mop since they are user-friendly and require less physical effort to wring out the water,” says Marla Mock, president of Molly Maid, a Neighborly company. “Additionally, they are convenient as many are equipped with easy-to-replace mop heads which save users time and effort.”

We tested 16 spin mops in our Lab and evaluated each on its setup, adjustability, maneuverability, absorbency, effectiveness, portability, and ease of cleaning. We found that the best spin mops clean messes quickly and can be washed without too much damage or fraying to the mop heads. In addition to Mock, we also received expert tips from cleaning experts Toby Schulz, CEO and co-founder of Maid2Match, and Delah Gomasi, CEO of MaidForYou.

O-Cedar RinseClean Spin Mop & Bucket System

The EasyWring RinseClean Spin Mop System comes with two separate tanks: one for dirty water and one for clean, ensuring you’re never spreading around soiled water. And, compared to the electric mops we tested, it cleaned just as well, if not better. It was able to absorb the entire 1/4 cup of water quickly we spilled onto the hardwood floor without needing to be wrung out. It was also able to clean stains on hardwood floors in less than 12 passes each (just two for the apple juice, canola oil, and marinara sauce). And despite not having a swivel head, the mop was easy to navigate around furniture legs thanks to its triangular mop head. On top of all this, it comes with a foot-activated pedal to wring out the mop head, so there’s no bending over.

Set up only took 45 seconds, which is the fastest out of all the spin mops we tested. And when it was time for cleanup, the microfiber mop head came out of the wash with minimal staining and fraying. Although we like the two-tank system, hands-free wringing, and maneuverability of this mop, we do wish the bucket had wheels for even more portability (although it does come with a handle for carrying).

Head Material: Microfiber | Handle Length: Up to 51 inches | Weight: 6.7 pounds | Machine-Washable Head: Yes | Includes: RinseClean bucket, adjustable telescopic Handle, microfiber mop head

O-Cedar Microfiber Spin Mop

O-Cedar’s more affordable model makes a great value pick. Like the RinseClean, it comes with a machine-washable microfiber mop head that can be wrung out using the foot-activated pedal. During testing, this mop pleasantly surprised us in the maneuverability department. Since this spin mop is lightweight and equipped with a triangular head, we were able to move it and get into those tighter areas with ease.

As for its absorption, this mop was able to absorb 1/4 cup of water from the hardwood floor in just three swipes. When it came to removing the liquid stains from the hardwood floor and the grouted tile, we were able to remove them in a couple of passes without any cleaning solution.

The mop’s sturdy Handle made it easy to carry from room to room. After machine washing the mop head, roughly 90 percent of the stains washed out with minimal fraying and loose strings. Just note that, unlike the RinseClean, this one does not have separate dirty and clean water tanks.

Bissell SpinWave Cordless Spin Mop

This electric spin mop is designed to eliminate pet messes, but we found it effective at eliminating all kinds of lots. It removed most stains from hardwood floors with just a few passes. And since this is an electric mop, it allows you to dispense cleaning solution or water with the touch of a button, as opposed to having to dunk the mop into a bucket of water like manual mops typically require.

Despite the fact that this spin mop does not have an adjustable handle, we did not run into any problems when using it and found it to be very comfortable (for a 5-foot-9-inch tester). Thanks to its swivel steering, the mop head was able to squeeze into those tight corners and reach further without us having to bend over or expend too much energy.

Although this mop impressed us with its ease of use, it is important to note that due to the mop pads spinning at a flat plane, this mop is unable to get into the cracks of both the tile and wood. When it comes time for cleanup, the places are easy to remove and can be tossed in the washing machine (although there was some staining from the marinara sauce even after washing). And since there’s no bucket, it’s nice and compact for storage.

Head Material: Microfiber | Handle Length: 45 inches | Weight: 11 pounds | Machine-Washable Head: Yes | Includes: 1 mop, two soft-touch pads, two scrubby pads, two trial-size PET multi-surface formulas, one storage tray, one charging adapter plug

Hapinnex Spin Mop & Bucket

We were extremely impressed with this spin mop’s ability to clean hardwood flooring. The first thing we noticed was that the spin mop took longer to set up than some of the other spin mops we tested (two minutes and 55 seconds), as it had three rods that needed to be attached. But we like how the Handle can adjust to accommodate people of varying heights.

We were immediately impressed by this mop’s absorbency because it only took us four quick swipes across the floor to dry the 1/4 cup of water we intentionally spilled onto the hardwood floor. We were also pleasantly surprised by how well this mop cleaned the stains off the hardwood floor–it only took one pass for the apple juice and two for the canola oil and butter. Although the mop did work to remove the stains on the grout tile, it was not as effective as it was on the hardwood, as some of the colors, such as the marinara sauce, didn’t come off the grout lines without a great deal of effort.

While it wasn’t an overly difficult task to remove the mop head, we had some difficulties at first and wished the directions were clearer. However, once we figured it out, the mop head rinsed well and didn’t leave too much of a stain behind. Despite the troublesome time we had with removing the mop head, we were able to overlook this aspect due to how easily maneuverable and lightweight this mop is. We also didn’t experience any residual odors coming from the mop head after it was machine-washed, which was a plus.
