Fill your mop bucket with a cup of white vinegar and hot water. If you do not own a mop bucket, use any bucket of a similar size.
Rinse the mop head in the white vinegar and hot water solution thoroughly, wringing out the mop head when necessary. Repeat until the entire solution is used. If the mop head is still dirty, create another white vinegar and hot water solution to repeat the process.
Using plain hot water, quickly rinse the mop head.
Soak the mop head in undiluted lemon juice. Do not rinse off the lemon juice after application.
Allow the mop head to dry completely before use. Ideally, place it outside to dry in the sun, which further disinfects the mop fibers. Make sure the mop is completely dry before using it again.
