    It's easy to take this mop for a 'spin'!

    I've seen TV ads for spin mops, but never saw one in person. So at the Housewares Preview I made sure to stop by to see the Black + Decker Spin Mop. After speaking with Michael at the booth, I learned spin mop technology is available from many companies who put their own 'spin' on it. On TV, I've seen many versions, including ones with a pedal that you pump to spin the mop dry. This Black + Decker model was easy-to-use because by just moving the handle up and down, it spins the mop. In the video of this week's show you'll see Michael pour some cranberry juice on the wood floor. (It was real cranberry juice he borrowed from another booth.) He was able to clean it up quickly with the microfiber mop. Microfiber holds far more water than a regular mop and it also has the ability to spin itself dry very quickly. Plus it's more stain resistant. I have no experience with any other spin mop to compare this too, but from what I saw at the show, this seems like a good deal for under $30.00. It should be at retail stores now or very soon. (I didn't see it available on the web when I searched on 2/6/17)
