What is microfibre? Why should I use microfibre when cleaning?

Vileda® mop heads use the magic of microfibre to remove over 99% of bacteria with just water.*

Without the use of harsh chemicals, our Vileda® microfibre mop refills have tiny strands that can easily pick up dust, dirt, bacteria, and spills with little fuss. Most traditional mops and cloths use fabric with strands that are too large to capture tiny germs.

Cleaning your floor with our microfibre mops and just water does not kill bacteria, it simply removes it from floor surfaces, as proven in our independent lab testing. Of course, if you prefer to use a cleaning solution, you can choose to use your favourite floor cleaner mixed with water. It is suggested you clean before you disinfect any hard surfaces.

How often should I replace my Vileda® mop refill?

When it comes to replacing mop refills, our rule of thumb is to use a fresh mop refill after every clean. Our entire line of Vileda®  microfibre mop refills are durable, easy to change, and designed to be machine washed & reused multiple times. Worried you’ll be caught without a spare on wash day? To avoid that, stock up on extras so you’re always ready to tackle any mess that comes your way. Simply toss into the wash, lay flat to dry and avoid bleach or fabric softeners, which can break down the fibres.

Pro Tip: Have a particularly stubborn spill? Use our Deep Clean Refill with the EasyWring Spin Mop—it’s designed with a unique scrub pad that offers up to 40% more cleaning power.** With less effort, you’ll enjoy clean floors in no time!

Its hands-free wringing pedal helps you control the amount of water you're putting on the floor. And like the ProMist MAX, the reusable mop head removes 99% of bacteria with just water.*

Safe to use on all hard floor surfaces including hardwood, tile, vinyl, laminate, ceramic, marble or stone surfaces.

How do I clean my washing machine?

How do I clean my washing machine?

In order to get the most out of your Vileda ® microfibre mop refills, it’s best to clean the thing that cleans them. The washing machine tends to be forgotten about when cleaning, and it’s important to keep your washer in tip-top shape for optimal performance. Soap residue in commonly used detergents builds up in the washing machine, and over time, you might notice that your mop refills just don’t seem to get as clean as they used to.

Here are our top cleaning tips for your washing machine using natural, non-toxic ingredients:

• Fill your washer with hot water.
• Add 4 cups of white vinegar to your washer and run a complete wash and spin cycle.
• Then repeat the wash and spin cycle again with 1 cup of baking soda.
