In the past, the water used to clean the mop could easily get dirty, which will affect the scale of cleanness of the floor. Even more, it would spend a lot of time and effort to pour the polluted water out to the toilet or sink and refill the bucket with clean water. This step would be repeated several times just to get the floor entirely clean. After using this product, not only can always clean the mop and floor with clean water within the bucket, but also there is no more time and effort wasted going back and forth to change the bucket of water. Since traditional mop buckets usually could require over 10 liters of water to be filled, and the water would turn dirty in no time after several uses; not only will users need to change it constantly, water resources will easily go to waste as well. Our product is equipped with a unique structure and filter design that could require only 2.5 liters of water without changing or replacing. Our design will enable users to use the same bucket of water to rinse and clean the mop with recycled clean water. We help our users to save time, effort, money, and water resources. Using U.S. as an example, a country in which an average household is about 235 square meters, and on the average a new bucket of water is needed for every 16 square meters cleaned, so a total of 150 liters of water (10 liters * 15 buckets) shall be used to clean an average home. Our innovation would require only 2.5 liters of water for each time a house is mopped and cleaned. It can save up to 95% of water consumption. A recent study by OrbMedia analyzed 159 water samples, sourced from both tap water and bottled water in 14 countries, and found that over 80% (U.S. 94%) of all samples contained microplastics (environmental hormones). Our product can filter 99% of germs and microplastics, making the home environment cleaner, and babies and young children crawling more at ease.
