Alpabasa is the winner of the 2015 Pharmaton Life Changers' Challenge

No comments:
Several months ago, I attended the launch of the search for Pharmaton's newest Life Changers. Pharmaton was looking to award PhP 1 million to the best social enterprise idea that would have a significant life-changing impact on the community it aimed to serve.

Recently, I attended its Finals Night and watched as 9 inspiring social enterprise groups made their final pitches to the judges before the final decision was made. That honor, with PhP 1 million seed money for their social enterprise idea, went to Oras Na Para sa Alpabasa - a group of 3 young lady educators with a huge vision but needing funding support. Congratulations!

Review: Cleaning with the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop

No comments:
I clean my own room and for health purposes, I try to walk around barefoot as often as I can. So it is really important to me that my floors are kept clean. Recently, I was sent a new, innovative kind of mop to try - the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop.

I've actually tried a couple of different types and brands over the years. I started with those cloth mopheads but they easily tore off and thinned out. Besides, they were not exactly absorbent. Most times, it would just make turn the floor dirt into wet clumps but it would transfer the clumps from one place to another as you moved the mop back and forth. I needed a broom to sweep up all the damp clumps to finish off the cleaning.

Next, I shifted to a more expensive kind, the one that had sponge-like mop bristles. This was more dirt-absorbent and came with a plastic bucket. But still, after a while, it would thin out as the sponge strands would come off due to wear and tear.

The Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop which arrived at home was HUGE!!!

My first thought: It looks like my vacuum cleaner!
