Where do you dispose of the water when you clean your floor now? We have a laundry tub in our garage for such things.

My buckets of dirty water go down the toilet. I was looking at the spin mop......but the bucket seems LARGE, and I'm wondering if I would be able to hoist it up to drain it since I am quite short and don't have a lot of leverage with heavy stuff.

I think the bath tub is the way to go. Of course, if you have a basement or laundry room with a wash tub, then you'd use that.

They are sold at QVC and one or more of the other shopping channels. But buy them at a big box home improvement store; they're much less expensive.

Down the toilet for sure!! Why would you pour dirty water in a bath tub and then have to clean out the tub???!!! By the way---I LOVE my spin mop!!! I clean my blinds and the walls every month before I use it on my floors. So easy and fast!!!

I had a spin mop....but the handle kept spinning off of the mop head...while spinning out the water....and while trying to mop the floor....it was more frustrating stopping to fix it...then just cleaning my floors by kneeling and scrubbing by hand....that never happens to the vendor doing the demo...what did I do wrong....I threw mine away...

Oh, I filled mine in the tub...and emptied it there...actually left it in the tub and rinsed and spun it out without ever taking it out of the tub till I was done with the floors.....

I gave mine to my daughter who loves it. She uses the toilet to empty it. She fills from the tub.

I almost bought one, but the handle seems wobbly and didn't look like it would be firm if you wanted to really scrub a spot. For those that have one, is the handle sturdy?
