Second, after you’ve gone over the entire floor with a microfiber mop and pad, using Mr. Floor Cleaner to loosen the dirt, you need to repeat the process, replacing the microfiber mop pad with cotton bar mop towels. Take a typical bar towel, fold it in thirds, and place it under the mop. It won’t be attached tightly, like with the microfiber pad, so you’ll need to be a little careful to insure that the towel doesn’t flop around under the mop. It will take a bit of time to get the hang of it, but you’ll soon be a pro.
The cotton bar towels are more absorbent than the microfiber pads and do a good job at sopping up the solution of Mr. Floor Cleaner and suspended grease and grime. You could use a clean set of microfiber mop pads to do a second or third pass on your floor, cotton towels are more convenient and less expensive.
Plus, white towels also give you that gratification of seeing the dirt collect on them as you spray and wipe the floor during several passes!
Depending on how much built up dirt you have on your floor, you may need go over the same area three, four or five times to truly match the quality that we can get with our buffing machine. As with most things, patience is a virtue and the more effort you put into the work, the better the results will be.
