Brilio.net - Mopping can be done regularly as needed so that the floors of the house remain hygienic. However, after the mop is used many times, the color of the cloth usually turns dull. Apart from that, mops also sometimes have a fishy smell which is quite annoying.

If you often find your mop is dull and smells fishy , there is one washing trick you can try at home, you know. One of them, you can wash the mop with the addition of citron (citric acid). Citrus is known to have high acidity to help repel stains and odors.
