From Double-Duty Brooms to Shape-Shifting Sweepers

In the 21st century home, mop buckets are less common. They are quickly being replaced by more stylish and hi-tech sweepers to match the modern home. Newer cleaning products like the micro robot floor cleaners are smart enough to clean without you there. Others are aesthetically pleasing, like the LED lit-up brooms that glow.

Restaurants seem to be slower to adapt to newer cleaning supplies. While older models of mops require big buckets, newer models like the Scrubbie Mop do not. This product by Quirky has a retractable spongy head that collapses or sets up at the twist of a handle so that it won't require a traditional mop wringer.
