Best Mop to Use on Hardwood Floors

Which is the best mop to use with water and vinegar for hardwood floors? One of the Mr. Clean mops says not recommended for hardwood floors. I've looked at O'Cedar and Libman, but only one mop says it is for hardwood floors, that was the Libman mop.

I used Swiffer wet; then go back over it with dry cloth. A sponge mop works too, but squeeze it dry before mopping; and you'll still have to dry behind to prevent spotting & streaking.

I work at a floor covering store. The best mop to use on any laminate or hardwood floor is a BONA laminate/hardwood mop. It has a large rectangular head with terrycloth or microfiber cloth headcovers. Always use BONA-X floor cleaner or Bruce Hardwood cleaner and spray ONLY ON THE MOP HEAD -- NEVER directly on the floor as this will warp your flooring over time. Any large floor covering store should have these or possibly Lowe's Home Improvement Centers. Happy Cleaning!

Never ever use vinegar, or vinegar mixed with water on your hardwood floors. Also, do not use Swiffer Wet Jet. These chemicals are hard on the finish and the water will warp your wood over time!

If your floors have a varnish you should not use water. If they have a palmer finish you can wash as much as you want. As far as wet mops go, I go to the dollar store and buy a small two dollar mop. They are easy to wring out and are easier to swing around than a heavy mop.

Libman mops are great but be warned, the end just above where you attach/detach the mop head rusts out extremely fast. I mean in weeks but takes months before it finally just deteriorates. I think they haven't improved upon this because they know you'll have to buy another one sooner than later. I keep buying them because they're performance is better than any mop I've tried. The mop heads are machine washable and last.
