    As you may have already picked up on, we're a little obsessed with the cleaning king, Koh. Eco-certified, vegan and cruelty-free, the Koh products are free from harsh chemicals, while still delivering a powerful cleaning system that's suitable for almost every household surface. The Koh spray mop comes with reusable, high-performance pads that will wipe out dust, dirt and grime — that you can then chuck in the washing machine for reuse.

    Promising Review: "I've never been a huge fan of mopping, but with a house full of timber floors and a puppy in the midst of shedding his first coat, I finally gave in with this Koh product. And let me tell you, I'm officially a convert! This baby spritzes, wipes and washes in one go — making clean up so, so simple! Plus, it comes with five reusable mop heads, so you're never caught short."
