Mopping ranks right up there with ironing as one of the least favorite household activities. That's because mopping, traditionally, is a real pain. You've got to get a bucket, fill it with water, haul it over to wherever you're mopping, add stuff to it, then repeatedly wring out the water. The worst part is that this technique really isn't effective at anything except spreading a lot of stuff around. It's not necessarily grabbing and cleaning anything. All that effort, and for what? A still dirty floor.
