Rubbermaid Press Releases

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (May 11, 2010) – Despite being one of the most frustrating areas of a house to clean, brilliant floors give consumers more satisfaction than any other surface in the home1. Yet, current floor cleaning options either require lots of work or expensive refills. With this in mind, Rubbermaid® introduces the new Rubbermaid Reveal™ microfiber spray mop to enable consumers to get great looking floors, minus the expense of replacement pads, refill cleaning solutions and batteries required by the leading spray mop cleaning system.

“The economy has led consumers to rethink expenses and look for ways to save, and floor cleaning is no exception.  The costs of owning the leading spray mop add up quickly when you factor in the purchase of the starter kit followed by the ongoing cost of refills and batteries,” said Dave Valliere, senior brand manager for Rubbermaid. “The Rubbermaid Reveal spray mop features a reusable microfiber pad and a refillable bottle to help consumers realize spotless floors while saving them more than $50 annually versus the leading spray mop. Not to mention, these features also make Rubbermaid Reveal substantially greener than other cleaning systems.”

Consumers can use hot water and their own cleaning solutions in Rubbermaid Reveal’s refillable bottle, and the trigger on the handle allows for easy release of the liquid to prepare a floor for cleaning, all without the use of batteries.  A reusable, washable microfiber pad attaches to a 15-inch wide, 360 degree swivel head. Rubbermaid Reveal uses all these features to quickly and thoroughly remove dirt, dust and stains from floors, giving consumers a better way to clean.

The Rubbermaid Reveal spray mop will be sold in major retailers this summer.  Online purchases and more information are available at
