the H20 Mop?
It is a mop that uses steam to clean your floor. Yes, I am watching the infomercial!
I don't have a regular mop. I do my floors the old fashioned way on my hands and knees. Or not at all ... lol
wow Busy...that sounds incredible!!!
I am always looking for a good mop because I have such a hard time with mopping and vacuuming the floors. The boys (ok...Billy and Tony) do such a bad job of it that I might as well not even try.
Do tell if you get it and how.
No, never even heard of that mop - am going to go look it up on Google though
Almost all of my house are veneer floors - I can't tell you how many mops I have personally tested. But last week when we went to the county fair, I bought a PVA mop, one I DIDN"T have in my collection. And I absolutely love it. Its got really deep grooves to catch up dirt, which all comes out with just a dip in the bucket.
I don't have to deal with many spills, but the dogs do track in dirt not to mention dog hair and they can't drink water neatly - its always dribbled a few feet from the bowl. For that, this mop to me is the greatest invention since sliced bread LOL
My kitchen floor and bathroom floors though, I am with GG, its hands and knee time. Lucky they are really small rooms. I just don't feel like they get clean enough with a mop.
I feel the same way with a normal mop. But, I feel like this steam cleaning would be the cleanest way to mop. Hot steam - everything sanitized. You could even do the tile walls in the bathroom. No more soap scum!
But, it is entirely possible it does not work the way the infomercial claims.
I haven't seen that, but I will look for it. I have been thinking about getting one of those steam cleaners for counters, etc...
I used a steam mop back several years ago when I had vinyl floors. It did a good job but had a small water reservoir so it was a pain because I constantly had to stop and refill. They may have improved it since then.
I also used it for regular cleaning. You still have to wipe up behind using the steam and I really didn't think it did a better job than regular cleaning products. Of course, it would be chemical free cleaning which would be a plus for some.
The best use I found for it was removing wallpaper.
I have ceramic tile floors in my kitchen now. I bought a Hoover Floormate a couple of years ago and LOVE it. It uses separate chambers for the clean and dirty water and dry vacuums, washes, and dries the floor. I love that the floor is virtually dry when I am are done.
I would never go back to a regular mop now.
One the infomercial, it appeared as if the mop did dry up the floor as well.
It had a washable pad on the bottom that the steam went through and that supposedly dried the floor at the same time.
