They say “2 is better than 1”, and this mop with double rotating brush heads ($89.70) is sure to give a more thorough clean with the same amount of time and effort. Not only does it cover a larger surface area, the rotating mechanism also enables deep scrubbing to loosen up tough grime.
The entire appliance is kept at a lightweight 1KG despite being fitted with the electronic attachment, letting you easily operate it using 1 hand. Apart from the removable brush pads, you can also dismantle the brush head from the rod between uses for compact storage.

For those who want to do away with the whole mop-and-bucket combo altogether, the Xiaomi Deerma spray mop ($19.50) comes equipped with a small water tank to moisten your cleaning areas as required. The spray handle is ergonomically located at the top of the rod, so you can press to release targeted spritzes of water.
The rod measures an extra-long 124CM, allowing you to reach ceilings as well as nooks and crannies usually obstructed by furniture. Feel free to fill the water tank with a bit of Dettol to disinfect select areas without getting too heavy-handed, as compared to pouring it directly into a mop bucket to slather throughout the house.

Getting bonus points for versatility, this steam mop is not just limited to cleaning floors. You can also toggle between different modes and switch out the accompanying brush head attachments to clean glass surfaces such as windows and mirrors, fabric of your cushions and sofa upholstery, and the stainless steel portion of your kitchen sink.

Mopping can be quite the chore, and it doesn’t help that it’s exhausting to manually wring water out by forcefully pressing against a bucket strainer. This ingenious rod comes with a built-in wringer ($7.60); simply twist it upwards after you’ve dunked the mop in water to squeeze out excess without much exertion on your part.
The mop head is also made of ultra absorbent microfiber cloth as opposed to the standard long yarn or thin and flat strips, enabling it to latch onto more dirt particles.

Another lifesaver for your arm muscles, the LEIFHEIT mop with spinner bucket ($118) lets you chill while it spin-dries excess water to prevent drips, resulting in slippery puddles when you mop.
All you have to do is plunge the rod down in the draining compartment to activate rapid spin cycles, before pumping as necessary till you get the desired dampness. The mop head is also extra thick and fluffy, providing added absorbance.

Save precious time trying to figure out whether your mop has been adequately wrung out by investing in a JML Ultimo AirLift mop ($49.90). The bucket features a patented self-lifting system, drying your mop head off while gradually pushing it upwards so you know it’s been thoroughly strained by the time it pops back up to the surface.
As it spin-dries, the bucket is also fitted with a triple-pronged cleaning blade to scrape off residual dirt. Don’t worry about missing hard to reach corners either – this unique mop plate folds upwards on the side to be able to clean along edges.
