Product Review: Libman Freedom Mop


In the past, I had used a Swiffer Wet Jet and while I liked it and felt that it did a good job, it was also a rather expensive mop to use between the costs of the replacement cleaning pads and refill containers of the solution. I also felt bad about having to throw away the cleaning pads after each cleaning. Since I had already started using a microfiber cloths on the regular Swiffer, I had tried to do the same with the Wet Jet, but it didn't work. That's about the time I first saw the Libman Freedom Mop advertised. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for! There are NO batteries and the cleaning pads are reusable up to 50 washes. The container detaches easily so that I can fill it with whatever cleaning solution I want (I use 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar) and the microfiber cloth has little scrubbies on it to help break up stubborn spots. I just toss the dirty pad in with my cleaning cloths and pop on the extra one I purchased so that the mop is always ready to use. It's durable and well-made yet light weight so it's easy to carry around the house. I still use our surface steamer for "deep" cleaning, but the Libman Freedom Mop is the answer for quick daily touch-ups while still being environmentally and fiscally responsible. I would definitely recommend this product.


  1. I have thought this mop looked great too....hate that i just invested in the swifer wetjet a couple months ago.

    You've got a new follower, me! I like all your info on CD's I am getting ready to make my first big fluff purchase and I am going to be in major research mode soon! I am a big fan of the is on its way to my house now (shower gift!) jury is still out!

  2. Thanks, Jeanna! I'm glad that you've found my blog to be helpful. I need to get caught up on a few more reviews on the CD page. I think you'll be pleased with the BBs - they're just a "well-rounded" type of diaper. Nicki's Diapers has excellent customer service, BTW.
