Libman 4000 Freedom Spray Mop is a very good mop and can definitely save you a lot of money because you don't have to keep buying expensive mop pads or expensive solution. You can make up the solution yourself - use whatever kind of cleaner you prefer as the bottle is refillable. The pads are washable which really saves money. I have 2 so I always have a clean one handy. The only thing that I really don't like about this mop is that I don't like having to deal with washing the pads or taking the dirty pads off of the mop itself. The pads are okay - they are microfiber - but they are not the most absorbent. I would prefer if they were more of a cotton-blend so they absorbed better. I guess it depends on what you are looking for in a mop - convenience or an economic choice. This mop is also "greener" because of the fact you can reuse the pads and refill the cleaning solution. As far as cleaning goes - it does a good job.
