    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.
