The StarMop Pro is a great option for the environmentally conscious. The detachable microfiber pads are reusable, cutting down on the waste involved with other options like the Swiffer WetJet. Simply rinse out the pad after use and toss it in the washing machine every now and then. The makers of this mop claim that it cleans just as well using only water, and reviewers back up that claim, adding that some white vinegar diluted in the water cleans their floors as well as the harsher chemical floor solutions.
Although the StarMop Pro is certainly greener than the next generation mops, it's obviously not quite as convenient. Washing the pads takes more time than simply throwing them away, and the fact that it can only be bought online (or from TV infomercials) may be a turn-off for some people. The pluses for many reviewers, however, seem to outweigh the negatives.
This mop can pull double duty as a duster, and the grooves in the fiber make it ideal for scrubbing. It requires no wringing out like some other mops do, and the swivel head makes it easy to clean hard to reach areas, like behind the toilet.
The StarMop Pro comes with one pad. Replacement pads can be bought online at $24.95 for a box of four.
