Sponge mop happiness

Only the crappiest sponge mop imitations with average life expectancy of 1-2 months are shipped here, usually from China. For twice the price you can buy overdesigned French or Italian crap that may even last for three. If you’ve been in Moscow long enough to make washing floors an issue you will understand what joy it was to find a real American sponge mop.

It is in an old-fashioned hardware store on Zvezdny Boulevard, south side, 400ft from Prospekt Mira, Metro VDNKh or Alexeyevskaya. About six types of Libman mops costing in the 700-1100 rouble range.
