While many may settle for the standard dip-and-go mop, you know that there is so much more available out there in cleaning world.
The dilemma is choosing the right cleaning tool!
If you’re sick of the cheap, standard mops that only help you spread your dirty messes across the floor rather than actually picking them up, it’s time to choose the best spin mop for your floors.
We’ve compared and contrasted the top picks below, and we’ll provide you with a few tips shopping tips so you know whether or not the purchase is worth your while.
Have a read so you know which mop is right for you!
What to Look For
As you compare and contrast mops, here are a few things to look for.
- Mop Head. You’ll probably want to cover as much surface area as possible while you’re mopping, so the wider the mop head the better.
Diameters vary, some around 11 inches and others around 14 inches.
You’ll want to look at the material (most are microfiber) and whether or not it’s machine washable.
- Handle Length/Handle Material. Handles usually come in either aluminum or stainless steel.
Aluminum is lighter in weight while stainless steel is a bit heavier (yet sturdier).
If you’re tall, make sure that the handle is long enough to accommodate you comfortably without making it necessary to bend over and strain your back. Some come with extensions or sell them separately, so remember this as you shop!
- Bucket Design. Does it have a pour spout on the lip (when you’re ready to dump out the dirty water)? Is the handle sturdy and is the bucket material thick?
Does the water splash out when you spin the mop, can you pick it up easily or are their wheels that allow you to pull the bucket around as you clean?
Since most of the buckets are made of plastic only, put emphasis on the sturdiness and durability of the plastic used.
Some buckets have a foot pedal, and while this is handy, some find that they are a bit flimsy and easier to break.

The Mopnado is the top-of-the-line model. It has tons of useful features that make it well worth the investment for those who are serious about the quality of their cleaning products and the cleaning power they offer.
Mopnado has wheels and a collapsible handle on the front so you can easily roll it around your home as you clean without the need to lift anything.
Inside the bucket is a handy rinse feature that allows you to spin the mop head in the water in order to shake loose dirt and debris before you wring it out in the spin basket. This is also one of few mops that has a stainless steel spin basket, a soap dispenser and a scrub brush attachment that allows you to scrub ground in dirt and grime. It has everything you need!
It is the most expensive mop on our list, but it is also the best spin mop on the market today. You won’t regret the purchase!
If you want to spend a bit less but you love the spin mop technology, then try the Twist and Shout Mop.
If you’re not interested in all of the fancy bells and whistles, this is a sturdy, functional and quality mop that gets the job done just as well as Mopnado. The only thing different is the simpler design.
It has a swivel head that allows you to reach under furniture easily, it has a 54-inch handle, microfiber mop head that is machine washable, and the bucket has a spray guard so water won’t come flying out as you spin.

This mop is very similar to the Mopnado above, with many of the same great features, a slightly different design and a lower price tag.
Like Mopnado, it has a scrub brush, stainless steel spin basket, soap dispenser, wheels and a rinse cycle in the bucket that allows you to remove debris from the mop.
Linkyo has basically created a runner-up version of their own of Mopnado. The lower price probably comes from the different plastic and materials used. It seems to be slightly less durable than Mopnado, but still an excellent product.
