First of all, let’s discuss the wrong way to remove the O-Cedar spin Mop head. 

The wrong way to remove the O-Cedar spin mop head 

There’s a common way some people try to remove the wrong mop head. The Mop head is placed flat on the floor with the person stepping on the microfiber pad. The handle is then pulled hard away from the microfiber being stepped on. 

There are several things wrong with trying to remove the Mop head this way:

  • You can damage the handle joint.
  • You can also damage the mop head.

There’s a better and easier way to remove the Mop head while also preserving the life span of your mop. 

The right way to remove the O-Cedar spin mop head

Step 1: Study the instruction of the mop head. 

The first thing you need to do is to study how the O-Cedar spin mop head is assembled carefully. You will notice that it is made up of a long handle that is adjustable and a mop head.

The mop head is a mix of plastic and fiber. It has a triangular red frame. Inside the red frame is another black frame to which the fibers are directly attached. It is this black frame that needs to be removed. 

Step 2: Position the Spin Mop correctly

To remove the Mop head, a better way to position the mop is to place it upside down. 

This way, the handle is towards the floor while the Mop head is at the top. 

Step 3: Detach the mop head

To remove the black frame, hold the mop head firmly with one hand, with the microfiber pad facing you. Firmly but gently pull on the microfiber pad. The black frame will pop right out. 

That’s the only part you need to wash or replace.

How To Replace the O-Cedar Spin Mop Head

To replace your O-Cedar spin mop head, all you need to do is align the black frame with the red frame and gently press it into the red frame. 

The black frame will snuggly snap into place. You do not need to use force.
