Hurricane 360 Spin Mop
- Use: Bucket and mop for cleaning floors.
- Cost: $39.98 + $12.99 S&H = $52.97 total
- Rating: ★★☆☆☆
The Hurricane 360 Spin Mop is an “as seen on TV” product that includes a micro-fiber mop with a tilting swivel head, and a special bucket that has a foot powered spinner to clean the mop and remove excess water.
The mop itself worked fairly well, though the tilting swivel head was a bit clunky to use. The foot powered spinning bucket also worked, but seemed more like a gimmick than an actual advantage.
While the Hurricane 360 Spin Mop did work as advertised, it was expensive and didn’t offer much of an advantage over a conventional mop and bucket. We rated it two out of five stars. Watch this video to find out more.
Danny Lipford: Okay, April, I’ve got an interesting one to show you here.
April Spencer: Okay.
Danny Lipford: This is called the Hurricane 360 Spin Mop. That’s a big name, huh?
April Spencer: Yeah.
Danny Lipford: Well, here’s the way it’s supposed to work. You push this pump, and it spins. So, you put it in there. And then, to dry it just a bit—oh, that’s heavy.
They say it holds up to like 10 times its weight in water. Then you spin it, and you hold onto this little spin thing up here. And you get a little exercise on your calf there, too, so.
April Spencer: Yeah.
Danny Lipford: Since April has the home field advantage in this kitchen, she’s giving the Hurricane Mop a test run to see how it handles the hard-to-reach spots.
The tilting swivel head is a little clunky, but it does allow pretty good access around obstacles. And the micro-fiber mop seems to be pretty effective at cleaning.
You see that thing that spins in the bottom down there?
April Spencer: Uh-huh.
Danny Lipford: It’s to allow you to spin it. So, again, holding onto that thing. And then it’ll clean it out, instead of dipping it up and down like you normally do. But, here’s the thing. It’s 40 dollars, plus 13 dollars postage and handling—it’s $53.
April Spencer: It’s kind of expensive.
Danny Lipford: Yeah, I mean, how much is a regular mop, six or seven dollars? So would it be worth that to you?
April Spencer: I don’t think so.
Danny Lipford: So, April isn’t impressed.
April Spencer: I think that the regular kind of, you just kind of pull and turn to squeeze it?
Danny Lipford: Right. Yeah, yeah.
April Spencer: And that works just as good.
Danny Lipford: And, neither am I. The mop itself does a pretty good job at picking up dirt, but the foot-powered spinning bucket seems to be more of a gimmick than an actual advantage.
And, at $53, we expected to be blown away, and we weren’t. We give it a two out of five stars.
