Transcription of the television commercial above:

Our Hurricane 360 Spin Mop Review

We first evaluated this product in mid-2013. Immediately upon unpacking the mop, it was apparent that the product was cheaply-made and smaller in appearance than expected. The handle was perhaps the biggest issue, feeling flimsy and too short to hold without leaning over. We were also unable to screw the handle in completely. The bucket is made of plastic that does not feel durable, and the foot pedal is difficult to operate at times.

We tested out the Hurricane 360 on wood floors with visible scuff marks and dog hair, and it was satisfactory in picking up both dirt and dog hair. Matched up against a cheaper Swiffer Sweeper, however, we’d give the Swiffer a slight edge. The Hurricane is probably better suited for smaller areas, as it seemed less effective in large areas and its round design did not clean corners at all.

Many of our commenters below have expressed frustration with the online ordering process. Fortunately, this can be remedied by simply purchasing locally, as the product is now available in stores such as Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Alternatives to Hurricane 360 Spin Mop

There are a multitude of spin mops available, all which closely resemble the design of this product. These similar products can be found on such sites as HSN, or in local stores such as Walmart. They range in price from about $30 to $40.

Hurricane itself has a new version of the spin mop available, the Hurricane Twin Spin. This product is advertised as half the weight of the original, but able to perform twice the work. It sells for about the same price as the original Hurricane 360 Spin Mop.

Bottom Line

As with so many “As Seen on TV” products, Hurricane 360 Spin Mop is another great idea which is poorly executed. The concept of the Hurricane 360 is idealized in the television ads, but the reality of the product is that it’s just a cheaply-made, over-priced mop. This could be part of the reason why the company has released a follow-up product, which we have yet to evaluate.

    I went on the web sight after viewing the product on TV but I should have known that the product made in china was not the best idea. I wanted to order on item and some how the one turned out to be 3 I called the company to cancel 2 of the items they said they took care of it and I would only get one iten I got 3, I called back to see how to return the other 2 unwanted product, the offer me $20.00 to keep the product because I would have to pay for return shipping I was so annoyed at the person who did not speak English properly and he could not explain the reasons behind what he was saying. The other thing is the reward for $15.00 to purchase other products I
    went on the sight and could not find how to redeem the card, I called again and the same poorly English speaking person told me he could not help me I would have to do it on line . Right about now I I am so disgusted with this company never again.

  • Pearl

    I was thinking about buying this product the 360 mop but after reading so much about people comments I rather not fall in this trap

  • S White

    I can mop my floors again!! I had been using a steam mop due to my arthritic hands. The steam mop was okay but it couldn’t get close enough to base boards or under low furniture. This mop lets me do it all plus I never get my hands wet – thank you Son for giving me this awesome mop! I’ll come mop your floors anytime 🙂

  • Luis

    I just put the mop together. It appears alot smaller than the one advertised on tv. Like I got a miniture one instead of the one on tv. On tv it shows the guy with the mop in the tube, pressing on the pedal and the water circulating around the mop head. Well, the one I received did not do that. I’m thinking I might send it back.

  • Sharon

    I forgot to tell you that I had called customer service because I hadn’t received my mop and I wanted to know what the hold up was, I had a young man who was very polite and helpful. I have been wondering if they they company have fixed things since some of these reviews however I noticed some of these reviews are very recent. Also my mop handle did come apart as it was spinning I guess I didn’t have it right enough.

  • Sharon

    So Saturday at noon I unpacked my mop put it together and started mopping. My take on this mop after reading the reviews was: I agree it’s cheap in its structure. Mop handle is short but I’m short so that made it easy for me. At first I didn’t spin enough so mop left my floor wet my fault so I spun again fixed the problem. I was worried about the pedal breaking after reading the reviews so I was gentle with it and took my time, thanks to the review I knew to be careful.overall I mopped my whole house in 30 minutes. That was good considering I wasn’t going to mop my floors until it arrived that took 3 1/2 weeks. The kitchen was the worst plus I have a 7 month old put bull who goes and comes thru the back door bringing mud thru my kitchen. I think the mop head could be bigger. I now leave it damp and by the back door top mop up as the pup comes and goes and clean it before I go to bed. I’m happy with it so far. But from this point forward I believe I will check back with this site before I buy anymore TV products, that’s if I’m crazy enough to do it again. For the person who says people get paid to write reviews how much do they get paid and where do I sign up. People are funny. Anyway thanks for the reviews the good and the bad they were very very helpful!!! 🙂

    • waffles

      Thanks for your review Sharon. We hope you come back again soon.

  • Warren

    Mom bought this mop locally at Smart & Final. It’s incredibly good according to her. Don’t believe any reviews you read online. People are paid to write reviews, good or bad. Buy from somewhere you trust that offers 100% refund, no questions asked, if possible.

    • waffles

      “Don’t believe any reviews you read online. People are paid to write reviews, good or bad.”

      Does this include your review as well? 🙂

      • waffles

        Just to clarify, we were quoting the commenter above!

  • Susan

    I really love this mop! I don’t understand the review that say the mop is still wet after they spin it! I have four dogs who slop up a small house and I have to mop every day! This is the best mop I have ever owned! I do my daily cleaning, dump the bucket, fill it again with hot water and laundry detergent and swish and spin to take dirt and odors out of the mop! It’s wonderful. I don’t get the bad reviews, I sometimes wonder if people really try the product and use it properly before they submit a review!

  • Sharon

    Thanks for this site. Do you only do products that are sold on infomercials or do you also do everyday items like food, electronics etc.?

    • waffles

      We typically focus on products which are advertised on TV, radio, internet, etc. There are, of course, exceptions.

  • Sharon

    Mine came yesterday and I plan on trying it this morning. I did a google search for reviews before I bought it but did not see this site. However, I found a YouTube review and the lady said she loved her mop. So now I’m feeling like a real jerk. I was only charged the $52 once so, so far so good. I haven’t taken it out of the box and now I’m scared to. I’m a 48 yr old full time.college student with a sometime excitable 6 month old pitbull who when excited pees so I truly need a good mop. If it does not work or breaks I am returning it I will pay the return shipping but will I get a full refund???? Thanks so much for this site it’s a blessing. I normally look for reviews before I

  • CeeJay

    i was so excited from the informercial, could’nt find the number i written down to get it,well googled the hurricane mop and saw where i can see reviews and i got this site. THANK YOU for preventing me from cussing them out and then some. Thank you for preventing me from wasting my money i didnt have but thought this would be worth it and thanks to you all,i see its not.

  • Tricia G

    I just bought the Hurricane Spin Mop from Bed Bath and Beyond. Maybe they’ve improved the design from when they first started selling them on TV, but so far I love it! I find it easy to use, and it cleans really well. So far, no problem with the handle or the pedal on the bucket. The only small complaint I have is this; when it was shown on TV, it looked as if the mop head spins while cleaning floors. The only time mine spins is if its against something like moulding, or kitchen cabinets.

  • roger hornaday

    I wish I had seen this website before ordering. The mop is outrageously over-priced at $40 and if you think you’re going to get a second mop for free as they advertise, think again. You get a second mop for half price which is $20. My order cost me $72!

  • notasucker

    Condolences to you. You are another victim of this heartless slime. Hopefully, this slime will burn in hell one day.

  • Ann

    Was going to purchase after reviews NO THANKS! I do not need the headache.

    • notasucker

      THANK – YOU! Glad to know our efforts saved someone fron the slaughter house these blood sucking thieves operate!

  • Julie

    Thank-you for the honest comments. Too good to be true sums it up. Glad I read these reviews BEFORE my purchase. Saved me hard earned money!

    • notasucker

      THANK – YOU! Glad to know our efforts saved someone from the slaughter house these blood sucking thieves operate!

  • mary

    Buy it at Bed Bath and Beyond with your 20% off coupon, save receipt and box, return if not happy.

  • notasucker

    Roses are red and violets are blue; The suckers fall for all the other gimmicks; And they fall for this one, too. Welcome to America, land of the free(?) and the home of the stupid. Fortunately, I can pride myself with not being stupid enough to get hustled by these thieves. If only the rest of the people would smarten up. Unfortunately, most don’t have the brains they were born with, if they ever had any. Almost makes me ashamed to be an Ameican.

  • Dave

    Well was gonna buy one for the wife looked awesome on tv. After reading these reviews NO THANK YOU. Glad I did some research first.

  • Barbara

    I called the number on the TV ad and got an automated system. I thought i ordered the buy get one set free plus the 12.99 shipping. The automated system said it would be 6 to 8 weeks to arrive. I checked my bank account and found they charged my account $152.92. I called them and they told me that was for 4 mops!! Who wants 4 mops. The man told me I could refuse one of the orders when they arrive. Well I was not home when the 2 boxes arrived so I took the boxes too FedEx the next day and they said that I needed a return label so I called to ask for return label and was told I had to use the label on the boxso that means that I have to pay for the shipping of course and I’m going to return both boxes and I’m going to protest against the charge $152.99 my bank account. It should have been $52.99 so be warned do not order this unless you want to be in a mess like me.

    • Wanda Hinson

      This very thing happened to me too. I ordered the spin mop online thinking I was getting the BOGO deal. They sent me a confirmation email stating the total charge was 57.97. They actually charged my account 102.94. I called the customer service line and was told that this was because I ordered the deluxe model. I have been on the phone with them three times and the only thing they would do is give me 15.00 back in 7-10 days. I think everyone needs to contact the BBB and the networks airing the infomercials.

  • Vicky

    The rules to return this mop when it breaks was impossible. I didn’t save my box required for return. Time flew & it was 1wk. past the 30day cut-off. I used the hurricane mop only 5x’s when the foot pedal began sticking and the basket wouldn’t spin.

  • Janet

    Guess I’m in the minority but mine lasted pretty well although I don’t use mine a ton and I have a small apartment. Great concept though, maybe future versions will be a little bit sturdier.

  • Shawn

    Love the mop and the concept, but pedal made of cheap plastic, spring broke out of plastic pedal on second use, would be great if it was better constructed.

  • Debbie

    I usually watch infomercials several times before I finally buy anything from tv. I was conned on another “dream” mop years ago that was basically another cheap over priced product. They show you the deluxe version in the demo,but send you a basic model unless you upgrade to the deluxe model. It’s always a bogo deal plus additional shipping. And get extra whatevers for just shipping. Before you know it, you’ve spent a small fortune. What fools we are to believe.

  • Susie

    You can find a very similar product at Menards, however, there is no “foot pedal” in the bucket. I will check out the handle better, but at least now you know you can find it at Menards (different brand, of course).

  • Cheryl

    Do not purchase this mop. Luckily i purchased it from HSN at a discounted price 3/2012. However this product is not what it is cracked up to be. The entire system is made of cheap plastic the mop doesn’t spin dry at all. It is dripping wet. But the most annoying is the handle which is very very wobbly when trying to mop. I’ve had replaced several times. The latest is While mopping the handle just comes apart . I have spent more time waiting for replacement handle parts than use of the mop. Good idea for a mop but cheaply made.

  • Debbie

    Wow. I had my credit card in one hand and phone in the other. Thank you for saving me heartache!!!

  • Tami

    So glad I decided to Google this before calling in my order. I was so in awe with their infomercial!! I was going to purchase for myself and 2 daughters. SO GLAD I did not blow money on this mop!!
    And yes, I, too, am upset Amazon is carrying this item if it is not worthy!!

  • Char

    Thanks but no thanks on this mop. I too was dazzled by the infomercial.

  • Cheryl

    Thanks everyone for the honest comments. I was totally about to order it. As Linda B. said, if it sounds too good to be true, then it is.

  • Jaime Haney

    I am so glad I ran across this site. I was mesmerized by the commercial as I’m sure all of these poor people were. We just want an easier way to clean, why do they keep making crap products? And why do we keep falling for it?! Thanks to everyone for the warnings. I’m taking them.

  • Linda B

    Remember the old saying “If it sounds too good to be true then it’s not true”? Well, this purchase is another example of how true that statement is. The contraption that arrived, the bucket, spinner, mop heads and handle are so cheaply made they are rendered useless. The dolly which arrived separately is useless because it doesn’t fit the bucket contraption. I can’t believe I’ve been so naïve as to have bought this product after seeing the promotional ad on TV. Even worse, it’s being sold on Amazon…a reliable online company with whom I’ve shopped often with wonderful products and customer service. I encourage Amazon to stop selling this product for all of the above reasons and to protect their own loyal repeat customers. Please, please do not purchase this product. It’s not only a waste of money it really is an insult to our intelligence and extremely disappointing. This is the first product I’ve ever been so disappointed by that I just had to warn others. Be careful please, and Happy New Year to all.

  • Donna F

    Mop does not spin when cleaning floors; mop is dripping wet and does not spin well at all.

  • Bas Williams

    Advertisement for hurricane mop is very confusing. They charged too much money for supposedly extra heads and extra mop but they did not send the extra mop. Argue with them (with my credit card CS) but they insist that it’s not free. Don’t buy this, it’s not worth it

  • Janna Doyle

    I was very disappointed in the spin mop. After moping one room I had to go back and pick up string all over my house from the mop

    • Gary Williams

      DO NOT BUT THIS MOP from Telebrands (Hurricane 360 Spin Mop). Purchased it online at their site. when I got it the Hurricane Dolly that I ordered with it did not fit. I called Customer Service and they told me that there is a Deluxe Mop bucket, which the Dolly they sent me works with. However, I ordered the basic Mop bucket, which does not have a Dolly as an option. I told them when I ordered the bucket the website offered me the Dolly as an add-on so I added it to my Cart. I also told them there was no mention of a Deluxe Bucket and that no where on their Website can you order the so-called Deluxe Bucket. They said my options were to return the Dolly for a Refund–minus shipping both ways of course, ouch–and buy the Deluxe bucket and the Dolly . I would of course be stuck with the costs spent on the so-called basic bucket, plus shipping, and I would have to pay for the Bucket all over again, just to get the Dolly. I totaled I would spend well over $100.00 just to get the Dolly I wanted in the first place. Oh buy the way the Mop is cheaply made..

      • Dori

        Just got my mop and dolly. Same thing, doesn’t fit. The person I spoke with said that it was for the deluxe bucket system. As stated already, no where did it say that on check out. I demanded a refund. He said he would refund me $10.00, I said “No” I spent $14.95 plus $1.98 shipping. He then said he could refund $15.00. At that point I figured I could swallow the 2 bucks in shipping. Be careful.
