Are you still mopping the garage floor with the mop rejected from the kitchen last year? If so, upgrading to the pro’s solution — a nice rolling mop bucket and wringer — makes the whole process a lot easier. And unlike upgrading to the latest table saw or knee mill, it’s pretty easy on the wallet.

Of course you can get by with a bucket and crappy mop. But you’ll save a bend-down-to-pick-up-the-bucket rep every time you move. And by pairing this with a good ‘ole standard mop you’ll save yourself the indignity of sticking your hands in the moist remains of floor nasty in order to repair the kitchen-style self-wringing mop. And when you’re done, just stick the whole thing in the corner — or out in the shed if you have one.

The Rubbermaid rig pictured above runs $54 from ACE right now, though you can find a similar deal (or even better) all over locally. For the best deal check out your local restaurant supply store. Not surprisingly, restaurants need a lot of these, and the fact that they’re notably cheap-minded when it comes to things that don’t draw customers or save cash works in your favor.

    I recently bought a setup like this from Sam’s. Similar bucket but with a removable wringer was $40, and the mop handle with replaceable cotton mop head was about $8-10. Makes pretty easy work of mopping up months’ worth of grime from snow ladden roads on an epoxied floor…

    Not that you would to mop your garage, but for everyday heavy mopping the removable wringer is better since the spring assembly can break after some use.

    A dirty water pail (an optional insert) also helps with some rigs.
    We often use sweeoing compound then follow with a mop up at the end of the day on some jobs where dust is a big issue.

    Who cares about what they use…just tell wifey to get out there and clean things up.

    HAAA HAA HAAA Old coot i love it but that does not bode well with the sign above my Shop…. Enter the SAC at your own risk (Spousal Avoidance Center)

    But as for the rigs, I love them for shop clean up, especially metal shavings…..

    These are tho only way to go when moping a floor. Makes the whole process way easier. You actually clean the floor rather than moving the mess around with one of those sponge mops.
