Any move here from the powers that be?
+1 go for it
I already gave a plus one already earlier in the thread but i find myself looking for a new mop and a forum like this would be invaluable for people in the know to recommend one.

Edit: +1 by the way!
There are prob lots of people that would love to know some of the old methods of cleaning that really work without having to spend money on expensive and useless products - know I would!
Passing through the engineering forum, I noticed a bunch of threads which had received 0 replies. Many of these threads were directly concerned with cleaning issues.

I'm sure many boardsies will share my distaste for the 'throw away' culture - so prevalent during the boom years, and equally many might remember the culture of 'make do and mend' - a culture we would be smart to re-evaluate.
