I do like my steam mop. I thought the envirosteamer was better than my shark and a lot cheaper. They're not perfect. They don't get the edges well. I think all mops have the issue of moving...

This makes a lot of sense to me. If we're providing for them, then it's just spending money. There may be some value in saving for a large item, but it's nothing like an adult needs to manage...
