Mops :bnghd:

I am so frustrated right now I could SCREAM!! There is a conspiracy among mop manufacturers to MAKE you buy a new mop every time the sponge wears out. They're supposed to be refillable... yeah, right.

I've bought 3 mops in the last 6 months because I couldn't find the correct type/size of refill sponge to fit the damn things! I just bought two new sponges I thought were going to fit my current mop - they were even the same brand name as my current mop and looked like a fit... I felt so lucky!!! Well, guess what... it was off by 1/4 inch in fitting....

Well consider this:

Everything you buy that can be "re-filled", isn't re-fillable, for one simple thing. Profit.

Think about it. Why would you make a product that can be used for years and years and never breakdown? That would make sense and not money.

Things aren't like they used to be when quality was first in line.
Now its quantity over quality. If it breaks, buy a new one.

Companies and corporations are smarter now, than ever before.
(this kind of thinking was brought up around the 1970's)
Every notice how things made before the 1970's seem to be around:and STILL work?

I have a few items made in the 1940's (including my furnace) that will run circles around the things made today. Its a shame. Really.

Cheap products, even cheaper components, and lesser reliability, make for great profits from companies and those who can fix them.

All in a days work!

I need a drink. That's for sure. I get frustrated with vacuum cleaners.
Every year the price goes up and the quality goes down.
Then you can't buy replacemnet parts.
But you can buy a new one!

Ugh.....well, cheers anyways.
