The speakerphone, which looks like a giant robotic arm, is supposed to eliminate the annoying, time-consuming effort of wringing out the mop.
The futuristic mop seemed almost too good to be true and the staff at In The Know decided to put it to the test. To try out the "self-cleaning" mop, we ran a good old-fashioned cleaning race.
We put the self-wringing mop against a normal, everyday mop. Our editor purposely messed up his apartment twice, but we eventually got an answer. Check out the video above to see what happened.

Using TikTok's most popular "self-cleaning" mop
In one corner we have our self-wringing mop from Newcreativetop. This gadget, which costs $ 33 on Amazon, is basically similar to a Swiffer combined with a Terminator.

The mop, which comes with three washable mop pads, is much more flexible than a normal mop. Then there is of course the big highlight: the self-wringing function, which you control by sliding the handle forward, similar to an umbrella.
This mop was extremely easy to use, but ultimately we didn't just test for convenience.

Which is better: a normal mop or the TikTok approved device?
To test our TikTok beloved device, we put both pugs through three competition rounds.
First we judged the pugs by price. Our regular mop only cost us $ 13 on Amazon while the Newcreativetop mop cost us $ 33. Score one for the regular mop.
Next we had a "purge". Our editor dumped a large bottle of blue, sticky Powerade on his floor - and for good reason he dumped a healthy serving of tomato soup too. Then we timed each mop to see how quickly it could fix the mess.
Our self cleaning mop pulled through and hit the standard mop by 20 seconds. The Newcreativetop device was much faster thanks to the self-wringing function and it was much easier to get to any point on the floor.
Finally the absorption test. In classic infomercial style, we filled our pugs with water and then wringed them out over a clear cup. Unfortunately for TikTok, the regular mop managed to absorb a lot more liquid.
Our winner: the normal, everyday mop. The TikTok machine was faster, but our regular mop won in both the award and absorption categories - making it a favorite.
Still, there are many reasons to consider the Newcreativetop mop, especially if you have plenty of space to clean. This device is faster, more flexible and covers the floor better than a normal mop. Ultimately, it all depends on your situation.
That said, we love declaring a winner here at In The Know and today the regular mop won. Good luck next time, TikTok.
