Usually there isn't a lot to like about cleaning the floor, but an Aussie spray mop has proved to be so successful, people are writing gushing reviews and declarations of love for it.

Shoppers are writing online odes to the Sabco SuperSwish Spray Mop, which retails in New Zealand for $49.

An Aussie woman even wrote a love letter to the mop, posted in closed Facebook group Mums Who Clean.

"Dear Sabco SuperSwish Spray Mop," she wrote.

"This photo does not do justice to your beauty. In this my year of organisation you have made my life so much easier. Where have you been all my life?"

Another told her family and friends to "do themselves a favour" and buy the mop "right away".

"Just did the whole house in like 15 minutes. Mostly tiles. Dries fast because no excess water, easy, works really well! Uses minimal floor cleaner. Then just chuck the end in the wash. So happy I bought this!"

Other reviews have been just as favourable, with one woman saying she would even say cleaning was "enjoyable" and another commenter saying it was "the best purchase ever".

The mop has a refillable bottle attached to the handle, which sprays water over the floor as you clean, removing the need for a bucket.

However not everyone raved about Sabco - one confused mother asked other group members if she was using it wrong.

"Maybe I'm cleaning my floors wrong - mine look streaky and when I walk over it there's oil marks over the floor," she wrote.

Newshub has found the Sabco SuperSwish Spray Mop for sale on the Bunnings NZ website for $49. While the Warehouse lists most of the Saboco SuperSwish range on their site, including fresh mop pads, the dearly beloved Sabco SuperSwish itself is not on that website.

While not the Sabco, Kmart has a $19 mop which appears to function in a similar manner. On Facebook group Kmart Mums, Vanessa shared a photo and wrote it was "legit the best Kmart purchase ever".

"It has cut my mopping time in half and I also love the fact that it's quick and easy to grab for touch up jobs," she says. 

Commenters recommend adding a little cleaning product to the water in the spray bottle for extra shiny floors, although say to avoid bleach even on white surfaces.
