Clean hard floors with a Libman mop.

Libman offers a Freedom spray mop which cleans hard floor surfaces a bit differently than your traditional cleaning mop. The mop is safe for practically any hard floor surface: wood, laminate, stone, tile, vinyl, linoleum and even marble flooring. The unit is user-friendly and requires no batteries or electricity to operate.

Step 1

Attach your cleaning pad to the base of the unit. This pad comes with your unit and locks in with a latch on each side of the mop base.

Step 2

Detach the cleaning solution bottle located in the middle back side of the unit. Snap the bottle out and away from the unit.


Step 3

Fill the bottle with whatever cleaning solution you typically use to clean your hard flooring surfaces. A combination of about 2 cups water to 1/4 cup white vinegar works well on any hard floor surface if you prefer to make your own cleaner.

Step 4

Snap the cleaning solution bottle back into place on the mop unit.


Step 5

Push the mop across your floor surface, pulling the trigger under the handle to spray the cleaning solution. Continue as needed and allow your floors to air dry.


The micro-fiber pad can be washed in your washing machine as needed with regular laundry detergent; you can wash the pad up to 50 times. When replacement pads are needed, you can purchase from the Libman website.
