Joy Mangano’s New Miracle Mop Gets Lousy Reviews

Joy Mangano’s updated Miracle Mop has only averaged a 2.2 rating out of five stars, based on more than 1,400 reviews, according to

But when we started to go through them, we had a hard time finding anything but “pristine” five-star ratings. What’s up with that?

We heard from one reader that the mop is so tricky to assemble that the home shopping network has now included special instructions on putting it together on its website.

We’re a little behind to blog about this point, but Mangano’s products are now not only being sold in Macy’s. They are also being peddled in other brick-and-mortar retailers such as Bed, Bath & Beyond and Target.

If we had known that, we would not have bothered to order Mangano’s mop and bucket from HSN.

Right now they are sitting, still in their boxes, in our living room.

Mangano, the inspiration for the Jennifer Lawrence film “Joy,” sold more than 210,000 mops in one day.

    I wish I had seen this before I bought this worthless piece of garbage. First time I used it the mop became untangled and would not go back to its original configuration. If I cannot get a refund I shall throw it in the trash. It’s too convoluted to work efficiently; you have to handle it very carefully and who has the time to figure out how to handle it the way it wants to be handled?

    Tools and gadgets should work for us; we should not have to work for them.

    Jus’ sayin’ buyer beware.
