A lot of engineering went into this product so you will never have to touch a wet mop again to wring it. This is an auto/self wringing system which leaves your hands dry and gets the job done. Join the revolution in wet mop technology and upgrade to our simply superior system. Directions for use: Pull up the plastic green hand grip, then twist counterclockwise to wring out excess liquid. Press the dark green button to fan out the mop and now you are ready to mop. Care instructions: To remove the mop head, remove the blue C-lock mechanism located on top and under microfiber threads. Wash the mop head in warm, soapy water and rinse well.
