What A Great Marketing Ripoff!
on April 21, 2015
These people have the best commercials and I have debated purchasing one since the old fashion hand and knees method works the best but as we age or have knee issues it is too difficult. Someone gave me this since they hated it and I thought why not, it's free! It never dawned on me watching the commercial that this was no different than a sponge mop really until I used it.
Followed the directions, thought I got the floor really clean then looked at the bottom of the pad, see photo's. I thought there is no way possible my floor is clean since I am "steaming" dirt back into the floor. I took a clean white paper towel, wet it, wiped the exact area I had just "steam scrubbed" with just my hand. Take a look at the paper towel after using the Steam Pocket. Called the company twice, both people said it really is more for sanitizing than actually cleaning, you should really wash the floor first. Yep, just what I want to do. This floor has only been in a few weeks.
This is the biggest con that I have seen in a long time and so glad I did not actually have to spend money and I understand why they wanted to get rid of it. I will get my old one repaired from another company, no washable pads, just scrub brushes and water with a rinse setting that actually gets the floor clean!
