Mop broke after second use.
Plastic molding that holds the sponge to the mop broke after the second use. So when you use the handle to squeeze the sponge it will not compress the sponge evenly. I noticed that I'm not the only person reporting this issue. If this problem could be resolved it would be a great mop. I liked the wide sponge.

    The mop is larger than most and thus is more efficient. Unfortunately, at one minute into our first use, one side of the sponge separated from it’s base resulting in dripping and splashing water as we used it. It appears the gluing process for the sponge to the base was defective. A mop is not rocket science and thus this annoying defective could have been avoided by a better design or better quality control. I expect the manufacturing company to send me send me a replacement sponge unit when I call.

    Waste of Money! This is by far the crappiest mop I have ever purchased. It does not absorb well and the 1/2 inch sponge part of the mop head shreds quickly leaving you with the need to buy another mop head since the type of sponge the rest of the head is made of doesn't pick up dirt or liquids hardly at all. If you rinse it at a sink make sure the handle is Above the level of the water or water funnels down the handle running on you and the floor, even if rinsing with it level. The squeeze mechanism is plastic and feels like it's going to break and also doesn't squeeze out well. Head does not open flat unless pressed to the floor. Does not get into corners because the brush extends out too far. I wish Home Depot still carried the replacement S head for the Quickie mop they used to carry. It didn't get into corners either because of it's brush but at least it didn't shred after just a few moppings and it absorbed spills well.

      The Big Gator Mop by Libman is a well-made and easy to use mop. It is designed with a cellulose coated sponge for additional strength. The cellulose coating helps the sponge to be more resistant to tears while retaining the absorbent qualities of the sponge material. The mop has a “butterfly” type wringing mechanism which is a bit different than the traditional roller type wringer you find on mops of this style. The “butterfly” wringer is activated by a grip handle on the mop and when pushed down folds the cellulose coated sponge in half to wring the excess moisture from the sponge prior to use. Although a novel design, I couldn’t say that it is any more or less effective than a traditional roller type wringer. I think that it is a bit easier to wring the mop out though as we have owned both styles. The mop also has a stiff bristled brush on top of the mop for hard to remove dirt. This is a nice little feature, but does limit the mop’s ability to get under tight spots. In summary, the mop is well made, durable, does an excellent job of cleaning and I forgot to mention that changing the sponge out on this mop is a lot easier than ones we have owned in the past. If you are looking to try something a little different in regard to mops, the Big Gator by Libman is worth a try.

      This is a quality "Made in the USA" mop. The features especially highlighted as a plus are the thickness of the sponge to absorb and hold an ample amount of cleaning solution to finish the job quickly, including the fact that it's also bigger in size than many other sponges. When you want to squeeze out the water, just pull the handle till it locks in place and it will completely fold the sponge till you push to release it. It's low enough to glide under kitchen cabinets. To remove the sponge, just pinch the protruding clips on either side of the sponge holder and the sponge releases. One tip though, make sure you pre-wash the sponge before its first use. There is a treatment (perhaps to keep the sponge soft till purchase) that can leave a tacky feel to the floor. Other than that, I was well satisfied with this mop's performance.

      As a sponge mop - the Gator Mop is quality made. We have epoxy stain floors throughout our home and we have found that the best tool to clean our floor is a sponge mop, however, it's hard to find a decent made sponge mop. The Big Gator accomplished that. A well designed sponge head that has a great support design by securing the sponge head to a butterfly designed back-plate. This design helps provide full even support of the sponge surface. The butterfly design of the back-plate allows the fold of the sponge head to wring out the excess cleaner. The sponge head is very absorbent and does a great job of even cleaning the entire width of the sponge. The handle and wringer lever are very well constructed holding up to the muscle used to wring excess cleaner from the mop head. For our floors there is not a lot of need for the scrub brush head, however, we have found it useful for scrubbing the the tile floor in out walk-in shower. Beats getting on your hands and knees Pros: - well designed mop head with near full support back-plate - mop head can be released for easier cleaning of the sponge or for replacing the sponge - well made handle and wringer, hold up to the hard pressure of wringing out the sponge - comfortable handle length - sponge head seems well made. It hasn't "pulled" like other sponge mops do. - refill sponges are available Cons: - the brush on the head is hard to remove, however, it does stay in place when scrubbing side to side

        Sponge Not Secure
        I have been very disappointed as the sponge repeatedly falls off. I use it to clean up a painted basement concrete floor in a pen where my dog sleeps in her bed at night. This requires your hands to reconnect, enough said.
