Helping you find the best spin mop to help you keep your home spic and span without struggling with faulty products that don’t get the job done.
A mop is a mop is a mop…right?
Wrong! Finding the best spin mop for your home is a hot topic among mommy’s in facebook groups and personal friends too. We all could use a good spin mop, but moms especially need efficient products to help keep our homes clean. Scrubbing dirty floors on hands and knees is just exhausting. If you can avoid hurting your knees and your back and have the cash for a spin mop, then I highly suggest you get one!
The right spin mop can help you accomplish your household chores quickly and efficiently. Your home size, family size and floor washing needs should all be taken into consideration when looking for the perfect mop for you. While it’s true, there is not true best cleaning product that will work for everyone, there are many products which can help you with your specific needs.
Let’s go through some features and some not so good things about some of the best spin mops out there so you can narrow your search and order one for your home.
I say order because I order everything on Amazon. With Covid 19, I try to do less shopping outside of the home, otherwise, I would hit up the local Canadian Tire or Walmart for new cleaning products. If I lived in the states, I sure would enjoy Target, but we are not so lucky here in Canada, anymore.

Top Picks For The Best Spin Mops
Hurricane Spin Mop – Best Overall Spin Mop
Hands down, the best spin mop is the Hurricane Spin Mop. It is a machine washable, pet hair remover master. If you don’t have pets, it picks up long strands of human hair too (ahem, postpartum hair loss is a b****)
I like this mop and bucket system because it eliminates the need to vaccuum the floors before mopping.
It does such a good job at picking up loose dirt and dust, that it cuts the whole floor cleaning task in half.
The microfiber mop head is super absorbent and grabs sticky messes and spills without much effort. The strands actually pick up 10x it’s weight in liquid, which means the entire mop head can pick up a large spill.
I also really like that the spin mop lays flat, which means you can easily reach under tables, sofas, and low lying furniture without having to bend down and getting onto your knees to wash those hard to reach places.
You can wash your baseboards and maneuver this mop around the toilet with ease. You can use on hard surfaces like tile, travertine, wood, laminate, and more to clean and sanitize your floors.
This spin mop uses Patented Centrifugal Spinning technology which helps spin away from the dirty water and leaving a clean mop head so you’re not spreading dirty water around as you mop your home. How it works: dunk the mop into the bucket and place it into the basket. Place your foot on the pedal and watch the basket spin. The spinning action removes dirt from the mop head.
With the Hurricane Spin Mop, you’re mopping smarter, not harder.
***Try not to be aggressive while pushing the pedal on the bucket, a slight push is all you need. Aggressive pushing will lead to a broken pedal.
|Microfiber Mop Head||Some people reported that the pedal breaks within a year – note that the customer service department is happy to help you replace your bucket if this happens|
|360-Degree Pivoting Mop Head||Mop handle not very long|
|Patented Centrifugal Spinning Technology|
|Great for pet hair|
|Easy to use|
|Reaches hard to reach places with it’s flat head|
How The Hurricane Spin Mop Works
Venetio Spin Mop
The Venitio Spin mop is a high quality rotary mop and is one of the best spin mops for your home or office.
Made with 3mm plastic, this mop won’t be rusting anytime soon.
The oar is lightweight and sturdy and is easy to fill up and dump the water out of. The handle is made with stainless steel and can extend to 48″.
This mop has microfiber mop head and removed and absorbs tough dirt grime and pet hair better than cotton pads. It dries the floor instantly, leaving behind no streaks.
The spin design cleans and dries the mop head without getting your hands dirty. The splash guard keeps you from getting soaked during the spinning process.
There is no foot pedal with this spin mop system, but rather you push down and make the unit spin with pressure.
This is an easy to put together system which leaves many homes streak-free and clean.
|Self-cleaning mop||Does not have wheels|
|Has a wringer and bucket assembly|

Tsmine Spin Mop – Best Luxury Spin Mop
If you are willing to spend a little more money, the Tsmine Spin Mop is an excellent choice for the best spin mops contender list.
There are some features that the Tsmine has that the Hurricane lacks, and those are wheels on the bucket for easy travelling, drainage plug for easy draining, extendable handle for different purposes. It has a soap dispenser built in too.
It has a few more desirable features, but they do come with an extra $20 price tag, which is why this mop wasn’t in the #1 spot on this list.
I do really like it though, and here is why!
The bucket is made from a PP plastic which makes the unit lighter than the traditional mop and bucket system. While you aren’t exactly carrying the bucket around because it has wheels, you may need to lift it up to drain the water. Water is pretty heavy, so a lighter bucket can help in this case.
This mop head does clean by spinning, but you don’t have to step on a pedal like the Hurricane. The stainless steel wet spin driver can wash itself just like a washing machine, can easily wash the mop head by just straightly pushing down and pulling up the pole for several times. With the dry spin driver, it helps drain the excess water without putting your hands into dirty water.
You can use the Tsmine both for dry and wet use because it works on all types of floors and even windows, cars, boats, RVs, shower stalls and more.
This specific set that I linked you to actually comes with 6 microfiber mop heads, so you won’t have to worry about purchasing any mop heads for about a year. That’s not too bad for a $50 investment.
This mop is suitable for all kinds of flooring and is one of the best spin mops 2021 has to offer.
|Telescopic handle||Some customers said it’s difficult to assemble, although the instructions are fairly easy to follow.|
|2 Year warranty|
|6 extra mop heads|
|Wheels on bucket|
|No foot pedal for spinning motion|
|Stainless steel handle|
|Quick-dry mop head|
|Can use on dry and wet surfaces|
|Can use on any type of flooring|

Mopnado Spin Mop – Most Durable Spin Mop
The Mopnado Spin Mop is a very good spin mop for the house.
My only concern with this spin mop is the fact that the handle, where it meets the spin mop is made with plastic while the entire handle is made with durable stainless steel. This means that it can be easily snapped, especially when warm/hot water makes the plastic less sturdy when washing.
this mop system however is still a very good system which is why it made the list.
My favorite part about this system is the fact that the mop head practically wrings itself out without much effort. A mop which is not too wet won’t leave streaks around the house which is a huge plus in my books.
Mopnad uses patented mop plates which make rinsing the mop head easier than any other mop on the market.
The deluxe model features large wheels and 2 handles for easy mobility while cleaning. The bucket is made with stainless steep construction and the handle is as well.
Mop heads can be washed in the washing machine and are durable. Some customers complained that the mop heads started to shed after a few uses, which is a good thing this system comes with 2 mop heads!
Overall this mop is perfect for cleaning your hardwood floor, laminate, tile or even concrete floor.
|Cleans all floor types||Customers report the unit breaks easily where the handle meets the mop head|
|patented mop plates||The mop head can start shedding after a few uses|
|2 large wheels||Large and hard to store|
|2 handles||Very heavy once filled – which is why it has 2 wheels!|
|2 mop heads|
|Machine washable mop heads|
|Durable stainless steel consturction|
|Good customer service|

The O-Cedar EasyWring is another farily nice spin mop system which helps keep floors clean in your home or office.
It is not a very expensive system which is great, but it has great reviews. I used this mop when I cleaned homes as a side job on the weekends a few years back and it’s a good system.
This is a flexible and convenient product that does the job it’s meant to do.
This bucket system does have a foot pedal to wring out the mop head, just be careful not to step on it too hard to avoid breaking the pedal.
The handle is extendable and collapsible, which is why I liked using it for my cleaning gig. Super easy to throw into the back of a small car. If you’re low on storage space, the collapsible aspect is also appealing.
You can use this mop for heavy-duty cleaning, or light spills and cleanups. It’s very easy to use the system.
This spin mop has a stainless steel handle and an aluminum frame which makes this a durable system.
The mop head also has a 360-degree swivel which makes it easy to reach all those hard to reach spaces in your home, even behind your toilet and under your furniture.
This is overall a good system whether you are a house cleaner or a homeowner.
Note that the mop head is smaller, which some people do not enjoy.

|Machine-washable mop head||Broom top spins|
|Absorbent microfiber mop head||Mop head is fluffy|
|Foot pedal spin design|
|Easy to spin|
|Easy to clean corners|

How To Use The EasyWring™ Spin Mop & Bucket System
The Twist and Shout Spin Mop is a good spin mop system.
The bucket is lightweight, weighing in at 4lbs without water. I wish the bucket had wheels.
This lightweight floor cleaner system is easy to use and doesn’t require the use of a foot pedal for the spinning action.
The self-wring design makes this a homeowner favorite. Simply push the handle into the spinning mechnism inside the bucket and watch it spin.
The handle on this mop adjusts from 44-55″ which makes it an ideal mop for short and tall people.
The mop head is machine washable, although I do recommend washing it on low and drying it on low as well to ensure the fabric doesn’t get ruined while washing. Washing too often on high cycle settings can result in this mop head becoming damaged sooner than intended.
You can use this mop on wet or dry surfaces and it collects all sorts of small hairs from pets and humans too. Overall it is a great system which helps you complete your chores quickly and without fuss.
This convenient system does come with a lifetime warranty.

Things To Keep In Mind When Choosing A Spin Mop
When you are looking for a spin mop for your home you are probably wanting the same things as me – a mop system that is easy to use, durable and can leave the floors clean and streak free.
Those are the mop objectives but there are a few other things you can look at when choosing a spin mop, let’s go over them now.
Storage: Do you have a lot of room to store a bulky mop system? No? Then consider something on the smaller side like the Hurricane Spin Mop instead of the Mopnado Spin Mop. Consider the space you have in your home before making a purchasing decision.
Design: Spin mops generally look the same, but they are all built a little bit differently. If you want something really durable, you may want to spend a little extra on a stainless steel design rather than plastic. If you believe you can be gentle enough on your new spin mop and store it well, perhaps a plastic handle system will be just fine for you.
Materials: If your new spin mop doesn’t have microfiber mop heads, run away! In all seriousness though, microfiber lasts longer than cotton and other materials, and it honestly cleans the best. Take a look at the mop head material before making your purchase decisions.
Effort: It’s nest to choose a mop system which requires the least amount of effort. Will you need to spend 10 extra minutes cleaning the bucket out after you use it just so it will work properly next time you need it? The less effort, the better. You already have so much going on, no need to add complicated cleaning to your already busy routine.
Price: You will likely take the cost of the unit into consideration when making a decision on the best spin mops for your home. The products I listed are all reasonably priced, and they each have pros and cons, so you’ll have to make a decision based on those cons, pros and prices before making your decision.
Fun Features Some Mop Systems Have
After you’ve taken the above items into consideration, there are some additional “fun” aspects to spin mops which you can also enjoy. Here are some features to look for:
Adjustable handle: An adjustable handle will help eliminate back strain, so it may be something to look into if you are tall. Telescopic handles can go up to 70″, so keep a look out for those!
Drainage plug: It’s not needed, but certainly nice to have. A drainage plug can help drain the water from your bucket easily.
Soap dispenser: some spin mop systems have built in soap dispensers. This makes it easy to add detergent and cleaner to your water as you clean. It’s a nice to have, not so much a must-have.
Wheels: Wheels are a very helpful feature on heavy buckets. They eliminate the need to lift and carry the bucket around your home as you wash your floors.
Handles: If your bucket doesn’t have a handle, don’t buy it, please. All buckets should have handles for easy carrying.
Why Use A Spin Mop
A spin mop is a regular mop that has a spin compartment attached to the bucket. The spinning action is designed to help wring out the mop for a streak free mopping experience. Most spin mop bucket systems require you to put the mop head into the spinning basket and step on a pedal to activate the spinning motion.
The faster the spin, the dryer the mop. A mop that is not drenched will help you keep your floors clean.
Spin mops should be a staple product in all homes. Even if you use a steam mop or a vacuum mop in your home, you should also have a spin mop at the ready. It’s always nice to have something absorbent on hand for those messes that occur during the busiest times of our day.
If you’re not wanting to own a spin mop because it requires a bucket, I would suggest at least invest in a simple flat mop like the Swiffer Wet Jet.
