I love steam mops and how quickly the floor dries and without having to use any chemicals or soaps.
Unfortunately, I don't love my steam mop. It's the "H2O Mop" (often featured in As Seen on TV ads, avail at Walmart and other major retailers). What I like? Triangular pivoting head for getting into corners. That's about it though.
It's heavy. It doesn't glide well on my kitchen floor (but it's fine for hardwood/laminate). Our kitchen floor had a bit of texture in it. The microfibre cover always pops off when I mop. I can only push it one direction...otherwise the microfibre mop head cover keeps popping off. The cord is always getting in the way. My back aches afterwords.
All in all - I end up frustrated by the experience....instead of energized/rewarded.
Anyone know of this mop and can recommend a lighter, more user friendly one??????
I had a steam mop and I got rid of it. I use a white washcloth that I dip into very hot water and attach to my swiffer. I then spray the floor with a little bit of amnoia---not natural but my floors do not come clean otherwise. I hot mop, rinsing the washcloth often. I like it much better. Maybe you could hot mop with just vinegar or something like Dr. Bonners???
