I know this question is a little old... but I had the same problem and I figured it out! Unscrew the red top to the bottle. Under the top there is a gasket (leave that alone) and a little clear plastic plug blocking an air hole. Pull the little plug out and put it back in the holder. (Be careful, liquid will come out of the hole). This allows for air and cleaner to flow through.. so viola! It's spraying! I was so mad when it didn't work (brand new). I wish it had come with this little tip on the packaging! Have fun! :)

Found BURRED in the Internet!

"Lime (any form) - Whether you're storing the round pearls of dolomite lime or powdered hydrated lime, the most important thing is that they must stay dry. Store the bags up off the floor to avoid the rising dampness that's common in some areas in winter. Or better yet, use the lime as needed on your garden in the fall and give it time to work in over the winter - then no storage is necessary.
I should mention that many of these products are applied with sprayers and other equipment. We use one sprayer for oil based products and one for non-oil based. Some people use a different one for each product, and that's fine too. My advice would be to make sure that at the end of the season you thoroughly clean your equipment and store it in a dry location. I've found that indoor storage works best because it stops any minute traces of oil from becoming gummy over the winter. There's nothing more frustrating than having a beautiful winter's day on which to spray dormant oil on your trees and then finding your sprayer is gummed up and useless."

PERHAPS a more 'Friendly' approach is: diatomaceous earth ? Low cost, effective and abundant!


A off white talc-like powder that is the fossilized remains of marine phytoplankton. When sprinkled on a bug that has an exoskeleton (such as bed bugs, ants or fleas) it compromises their waxy coating so that their innards turn into teeny tiny bug jerky. But it doesn't hurt mammals. We can eat it. We do eat it! It's in lots of grain based foods because lots of grains are stored with diatomaceous earth to keep the bugs from eating the grain!

I'm not a carpenter, but you could get a piece of wood an one by four and drill a hole in the wood and adhere it to the shed on both ends and each shelve for support.

Hi, I would use 3/4" plywood and build a Horseshoe type structure at the desired height then place it on a lower shelf, place another shelf on top of it.

good luck

If it is off track, then he does not have the slot aligned properly with the grooves. It should not be hammered in place. All that will do is wear down the grooves and then it for sure won't work.

It should have grooves on each side to slide the wringer into. Just slide them in place and you should be set.

I bought 2 rubbermaid reveal spray mops before I figured this out. You'll need a Phillips and flat head screwdriver & a can of WD40. On the compartment that holds the liquid cleaner bottle there are 2 screws and 1 screw on the connector piece to the mop head. Unscrew all three. The one by the mop head came out and the other two stayed in their holes. Then with a flathead screwdriver gently pull the seam along the side apart. You only need 1/2-1 inch of a gap. If you pull it open all the way you'll pop a few other pieces out of place and have to piece them all back together- so gently! Then spray some WD40 in along the exposed spring using the red straw that comes with the can. Close the gap, hold it together and try the trigger a few times. If the trigger is still sticking spray more WD40 in until it frees up. Then screw your screws back in and it's as good as new!

There is no locking mechasiam, it should just pull out. If yours is stuck maybe something broke check out this YouTube video. She removes the bottle at 3:42. Rubbermaid Reveal Mop

Clean any hair / lint / fluff off the sides of the wheels / axles. Give them a spray with a silicone lube. That should do it. If the wheels have gone flat on one side due to being dragged around the floor, you could try a hardware store to see if they can match up replacement wheels. Or try Rubbermaid direct ??
