Inexpensive and great for apartments
on March 30, 2014
This is a good little mop for a pretty good price. I love that once you have it there is nothing more to buy; all you need is water to clean and a washing machine to clean off the reusable pads. It does require that you move it back and forth to keep the steam going, which might be rough for a really large area. However, it is extremely light, and takes up very little space. It does a great job of cleaning the synthetic floors in our four bedroom apartment, even after twelve people carved pumpkins on the floor!
The most effective way to use it is regularly, say every 2-3 weeks and following major messes, since it will take a lot of elbow grease to remove months of ground in dirt. However, it can do that if need be. After years of cleaning my parents white linoleum kitchen floors (not a good flooring choice, but we did not choose them), with a Swiffer wet mop and yearly hand-and-knees scrubbings, 3 or 4 passes with this got us much closer to white than the Swiffer ever did. There are probably more sturdy mops out there, but if you are looking for a cost effective and chemical-free solution, this is a good mop for you.
