Old Style Mop That Uses a Clamped on Towel

Does anyone remember the old mops that had a clamp on the end for attaching your own towel? Does anyone know the name of them or (even better) where I can get one? I'm sick of replacing destroyed mops that don't really work anyway. Help?

I know what kind of mop you are looking for. I found this website which might be able to suit your needs.

Also try a family owned hardware store, they might sell the old vintage style mops and if not, they might be able to order you one.

This is a link to E-How and tells how to make a mop by using towels, and the towel strips can be washed in the washing machine. Hope this helps you.

One more article from eHow on making your own mop from towels.

Here's a bit of the article in case you can't get to it:

Details of Best Homemade Mop

There are several different types of homemade mops, but for durability and ease of use, as well as cost efficiency and simplicity, the best mop may well be one which is based on strips of toweling or other cloth secured with cable ties onto an old broom handle or doweling. This mop requires no sewing and can be made almost entirely with used items found around the house. The only purchased item may well be the cable ties used to secure the strips of toweling to the broom handle. Once the strips of toweling are cut into one-inch strips, they are wrapped around the broom handle and then secured with cable ties. When the broom handle is lifted up, the towel strips fall around the cable ties and are then secured with another strip of toweling, making a very durable mop head. This design can be made in less than an hour from start to finish, and the mop itself will last for as long as you might expect a bath towel to last, which is much longer than the standard grocery store bought mop.

The old Fuller Brush mops could be used that way, although they sold a knitted refill.

They're called spring clamp mop handles. You can fine some here:
