I came across the Cuban mop some time ago and found it a very simple and clever idea. A Cuban mop wraps a towel around a dowel-like piece of wood at the end of a handle and uses it to mop the floor. I have adopted this idea for myself with the variation that I use a flat surface rather than a dowel to press down on the towel mop-head. This allows me to use a single towel (wet) and progress through sections of it to mop a wide area while keeping the mop-head clean. My floors have never been cleaner!
