Shiwala Spray Mop is a swivel mop which is said to combine the convenience of a portable sprayer with that of the efficiency of a spin mop. Shiwala offers high absorption and a non-scratch material. The head features a swivel design which allows you to clean around toilets or baseboards. The head can be placed in the washer and dryer, which extends the usefulness of the product.
Interestingly, the product has been marketed under a number of different (yet similar) names, such as Shiwala Magic Mop, Shiwala Spray Mop, and Shiwala Spin Mop. From what we can ascertain, these are different names for the same product.
Perhaps unique to this product is that it is advertised as able to replace a vacuum. While one might think that there is some sort of suction feature included, that’s not what the advertising actually means. Shiwala’s head can pick up hair and crumbs on carpeting. Can it replace a vacuum for an entire room? Probably not. But for spills and small areas, it actually could be used in lieu of a vacuum.
The materials may not be of the highest quality, but there are enough features to warrant this as a potential product to try if you’re in the market for a spin or spray mop.
Some consumers have suggested that the trigger cannot be tightened and only sends a weak to moderate stream of water.
Now that Shiwala is available in stores, it is a much better deal. This allows you to avoid shipping costs, and gives you a chance to evaluate it in person for durability and size. You can also find it on Amazon, where it currently holds a 3.8 star rating.
