I mean, not even in Wal-Mart. There's only those string mops. There are sponges, there are mops, but no sponge mops.
The traditional way to mop floors in a Mexican is to throw a little bit of water on the floor and mop it up with a jerga, an all purpose cleaning rag, and that's what I do. I've never looked for sponge mops in stores I frequent in Mexico City, but I'll do so the next time I go shopping.why not? Do you know of any stores that do carry them?
While living in Israel, we used the same thing, a squeegee with a rag over it for washing, then the squeegee alone for mopping up the water into the drain in the hard floor. The floors were terrazzo or tile so it was most effective.I recall that when I arrived in Mexico for the very first time, the sight of cleaning staff in the airport mopping floors with a jerga (cloth) draped over a recogedor (squeegee) was one of the things that struck me as odd. It was the first time I´d ever seen this method. Why do they "improvise" the tool instead of having a dedicated mop, I wondered. It wasn´t long before I saw how much more practical this is than sponge mops or string mops. Why not go with the flow?
I never thought about that but I would suggest to look for it in a cleannig supply warehouse or there are streets in every city in mexico´s down town cities that sale specified things one street for pots and pans other for electronics etc there you should be able to find a street that sales cleannig supplies and hopefully a sponge mop I hope that helps good luck.I mean, not even in Wal-Mart.
