Sticking with the $40 retail price of its predecessor, the Hurricane 360 Spin Mop Deluxe includes a second spinning agitator in the bucket's wet side.
The original model has only one centrifugal force spinner -- in the dry side -- designed to whisk dirt and debris from the mop's micro-fibers to prepare it for its next job.
When we tested the original with Whitehaven's Bridgette Torrance-Williams in April, it worked wonders. It easily cleaned the worst of messes, then cleaned itself right up for more.
The deluxe model worked twice as well on a real catastrophe: A 3-foot smear of coffee grounds, grape jelly, tomato juice and mustard on a tile floor. Its two-tiered spinners of centrifugal force in both the wet and dry sides of its bucket cleaned better -- and faster.
"Rinsing (the mop head) in the original one, I had to kind of turn it around and move it around in the bottom of the bucket to try to get rid of all that excess dirt," said Torrance-Williams, who joined us for the follow-up. "Here, when I just sit it on (the wet spinner), all I do is work my feet on the foot pedal, and it does all the work for me. Just like the original version, this one's even better."
