Every year the UK cleaning industry buys and sells 700 tonnes of plastic mop sockets, almost all of which, ultimately, end up in a landfill site causing environmental damage as well as being extremely costly.
In an effort to reduce waste and save money, Robert Scott & Sons Ltd has developed a new eco-friendly mopping system to further enhance its Big White Mop - the Big White Refill Mop system.
The patented Big White Refill Mop system comprises two parts: a detachable socket and clip, and a replaceable mop refill. Simple and easy to use, the mop is placed inside the clip and the socket pushed on evenly. The clip and refill is secured by screwing the handle into the socket.
When the mop is old and dirty, simply remove the handle to release the clip and dispose of the mop in a paper recycling bin, then replace with a brand new mop. More hygienic and more environmentally friendly and no more unnecessary waste.
The Big White plastic socket and clip can be washed and reused many times and are colour coded to make cleaning easier to segregate and prevent cross contamination in environmentally sensitive areas.
