Begin by finding a docking place for the pads:
Find a clean, flat, hard surface that’s accessible and open to airflow (typically the best place is on the side of a refrigerator) then carefully remove the protective backing from the two white Velcro tabs and firmly press the tacky side against a hard flat surface. The circular tabs should be no closer than 5” apart. Plan pad location first. The adhesion is permanent but can be carefully repositioned a number of times. Caution: do not put behind closed doors with no air circulation. If so, the pads will eventually develop a musty smell.
Moisten the pads under running water, one at a time blue side out, and wring out as much water as possible. This helps the pads to scrub and absorb better and leaves less water on the floor—allowing foot traffic almost immediately.
Toss the pads blue side down on to the floor then step on each pad and make full contact with each foot before gliding across the floor. This leaves your hands free to wield a broom ahead of yourself (broom not included) sweeping away dirt and debris as you absorb spills and scrub out spots and stains. Your body weight adds to the effectiveness! Wear shoes with a heel, or tread, or even use barefoot.
After you have swept and spot mopped the floor, step off of the pads and sweep up the debris into a dust pan and empty into a trash receptacle then put the broom aside. Now you have hands free to lift stools, chairs and other obstacles as you Mop’n’Glide around the floor again looking for any missed areas.
Rinse the pads under running water, wring them out then hang them up to dry. The quickest way is to rinse the two pads, blue sides facing each other, and wring them out together. You will be amazed at how much dirt will wash down the drain. If this is a kitchen sink you’ll want to clean it afterwards with disinfectant.
Don’t use soap on the pads it reduces the scrubbing action and leaves a film to be rinsed off or it will leave a dull finish that attracts dirt. This also defeats the purpose of speedy spot moping. The advanced split microfiber technology of these pads eliminates a great deal of time, effort and the need for other products. (They may take a while to break in and become supple, but will last a hundred machine washings—never use fabric softener) No attempt is made to cover every square inch of the floor. Do that your traditional way when you have the time. In most cases a typical kitchen floor can be spot mopped in 2-4 minutes and look about as good as if you did hard labor.
