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 HSN.com.
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.
