Upcycled Mop Washing HackThis isn’t fancy or crazy, but it is useful!

If you’re like me, you have a collection of thick rubber bands building in a junk droor. They come on everything from asparagus to broccoli, and they’re heavy duty so you hate to throw them away.

Tossing your mop head into the washing machine may get it clean, but it may also result in an unruly, tangled mess. To prevent this, grab a your saved rubber bands to tame the ends. Wrap them, or double wrap if needed, around the ends of your mop strands (or strips) to keep them from knotting. Toss your mop head into the washer for a good scrub and then lay flat, or hang, to dry.

Voila! Clean mop head, no stress.

Thanks for the tip, Mom! ;)

That definitely looks like a very useful mop tip Amanda. I just found your site, by the way. Please look out for an email about my interest in advertising my solar power site on yours. Thanks.
