The traditional mop head is made from heavy weight 16 ply cotton thread, and is ideal for wet mopping. The bucket from galvanised sheet steel and is equipped with a conical wringer. Both seem more durable and effective (withstanding greater pressure during wringing) than modern plastic and synthetic counterparts despite their seeming ordinariness. The mop head and bucket are supplied separately. We regret due to its length and the cost of shipping we are unable supply handles but these are readily available at many hardware stores.
