Some mop buckets have a large caliber design that can accommodate all kinds of mops. Buckets with wringers on the top allow users to squeeze out excess water. Plastic ice buckets are used in hotels or restaurants to carry ice. They hold ice cubes, and a bottle of wine or beverages can be placed inside it to keep it chilled.
