Handmade in Aotearoa, these beautiful Cuban Mops are a perfect waste-free solution to the usually short term, plastic-heavy mop. 

To use simply wet a rag (in a bucket of soapy water) and fold it over the end of the mop and use as usual. Rinse out when needed and throw into the wash when finished.

Love it

I bought this almost two years ago but have only just used it today. I love it. It's easier to use than a sponge mop as it has a longer reach and is also easier to mop under furniture. I bought it for environmental reasons because there is so much plastic waste from a sponge mop so I'm really happy that it's better from a functional point of view also.

It's a rag on a stick

Admittedly a very nice rag on a very nice stick but why my mum spent $80 on this is beyond me. Wrap a rag around your existing broom for the same effect and waste even less

I love it too

Much better for the environment and to look at than a plastic mop. Can also be used as a swifter and is much easier to use because you don't need a bucket and can throw the cloths in the wash.


I was initially a bit daunted by using the Cuban mop but now I find I actually mop my floors more because it’s so easy to use and I can keep the mop out in easy reach as it's not a cleaning tool you have to hide away at the back of a cupboard.
