At one point I had the luxury of having someone help me clean my house once a month! She did an amazing job and would steam all my floors with a steamer that is no longer manufactured. I resorted for many years to washing my floors by hand. Once my son was born I really wanted them to be not just clean but also safe for him to be on. I found some really good green products to use, but still was searching for a good steam mop. I finally found a great steam mop! The Shark S3601 Professional Steam Mop.
This mop is so wonderful! It has three settings on it for Dust, Mop or Scrub. Really it just gives your more steam as you move through the settings. It does an amazing job! Using this mop has taken me from an hour long cleaning project to literally 10 minutes. I cannot say enough about the steam power and performance of this mop. I used it on my hardwood floors and tiled floors and it does an amazing job on both of them. The cleaning pad is easy to clean, you just throw it in the washing machine. Talk about a “green” mop!
The very best part is there are no harsh chemicals for your family to be exposed to on a weekly basis. You know your little ones are safe crawling around and playing on the floor. All it takes is distilled water! This was a real life saver while I was pregnant with my second child and even after when I was recovering from my c-section. It is so light weight I was able to use it just 3 weeks post surgery.
I purchased mine at Bed, Bath and Beyond and of course used the 20% off coupon. :)
