Clorox might be best known for their bleach, but they also offer a number of different cleaning tools, including their competitively priced Wide Surface Microfiber Mop.

The wide surface head also helps pick up more dust and dirt than smaller dust mops, which cuts down on cleaning time. And the one-size-fits-all handle is perfect for those who want to skip the assembling and get straight to cleaning.

 

Overall: The Clorox Wide Surface Microfiber Mop is a solid dust mop and is priced right. Users will enjoy its flexible and wide bungee head for cleaning around furniture. For those who want a turnkey mop and don’t mind a non-adjustable handle, you can’t go wrong with this Clorox cleaning tool for your Pergo laminate floors.

Another turnkey dust mop option is the affordable O-CEDAR Dual-Action Microfiber Sweeper. Right out of the package, this dust mop is ready to go with its non-adjustable handle and flexible microfiber head. Unlike the Clorox one, the O-CEDAR dust cloths features absorbent chenille to collect more dust and pet hair, and we think that’s a huge plus for pet owners.   

 

You can also wash the microfiber cloth up to 50 times, which is a convenient feature, but it would still be nice if they included an additional microfiber dust cloth to justify the increased price when compared to the Clorox dust mop.

 

Overall: The O-Cedar Dual-Action Microfiber Sweeper is what it is – an easy-to-use, no hassle dust mop for those that are in a hurry and need to do a quick sweep here and there. While it would be a plus if its handle was adjustable and included an extra dust cloth, the O-CEDAR is still a welcome addition to the dust mop family, especially with its ultra-dense chenille.

PROS:

  • Velcro cloth attachment
  • Wide surface head
  • Machine washable
  • Extra dust pad included

 

CONS:

The microfiber cloths are machine washable, too, which cuts down on refills. And unlike the Clorox or the O-CEDAR, the Microfiber Wholesale mop includes two premium microfiber cloths for backup, which we appreciate. But the greatest thing about the MW, besides its cleaning ability, is how easy it is to change dust pads. Using Velcro technology, you can quickly change out a dust pad in a matter of seconds, saving you time if you’re expecting last-minute guests.

 

Overall: Microfiber Wholesale’s Professional Microfiber Mop is sold as a superior product with a higher price tag to match. The easy-to-change pads make sweeping less of annoyance and the microfiber cloth seems to pick up more dust than others. Plus, the professional quality ensures durability for years to come. If the price isn’t an issue, then strongly consider MW when choosing a dust mop. Whatever dust mop you end up with, your Pergo laminate floors will thank you.
