The Impact 217 white Vanisol toilet bowl mop has white bristles and a white plastic handle and is used for cleaning toilet bowls. The brush head is angled to facilitate cleaning. The plastic handle resists cracking, warping, and bacteria growth. The brush is 14" long. The brush head measures 4" in diameter.
Wet mops (also called string mops) consist of a mop head, a handle, and a method of attaching, or mounting, a mop head onto a handle. Mop heads are typically made of cotton, synthetic fibers, or blends of cotton and synthetic. Synthetic fibers withstand laundering better and dry faster, both factors leading to longer product lifespan because harmful bacteria grow in a damp mop. In traditional string mop construction, coarse strings of cotton yarn are banded at the head for connection to a handle, and the strings hang loose at the tail. This method is now referred to as "cut-end," to contrast with the improved method of looping the strings back to the head, leaving no loose ends to fray. Laundering is not recommended for cut-end mops. Other improvements include tailbanding, which ties the strings together close to the tail to reduce tangling and improve floor coverage. Mops are used for cleaning floors or for spreading an oil- or water-based floor finish onto a floor to protect the surface.
