Clearly I am a girl who needs instant gratification.
After reading reviews online (and listening to so many of you rave about steam mops) I joined the Bed, Bath and Beyond email list so I got a 20% off coupon delivered to my inbox and drove straight there [in the pouring rain!]
Came home, plugged ‘er in and got to work.
Look at the grime the VAC part picked up right away! I am very pleased with the vac feature.
The Shark was very easy to use – I love how things fit together and work. Very pleased.
The steaming part was pretty darn cool. NO BUCKETS! NO SLOSHING! NO TOUCHING GROSS MOP HEADS!
I swear my floors were dirty in the befores!!
Since they looked pretty clean already, there really isn’t much of a difference. But the difference is all in how they FEEL! Normally I wouldn’t touch our floors with my bare hands. But I rubbed my palms all over the afters and they were clean and smooth!
It also got up some paint chip marks that no other mop had gotten up.
Our floors are naturally pretty shiny (remember we’re renting this house, so I have no idea how they’ve been cared for) but I do think they are a little less shiny then when I have used some other products. I also slightly miss the clean SMELL. Do you think I could add some essential oil to the steam water??
Most of all, the Shark is just SO convenient. The first of four pads is washing in the washing machine right now, and I was able to clean my whole house in much less time.
I made lunch when I was finished cleaning around 1PM
A KERF Staple salad: Spinach, carrots, peppers dressed in olive oil, honey and lavender salt. Plus bleu cheese, cherries and cottage cheese
With a side of Terra chips and half an apple. These are the new RUFFLED Terra chips and I LOOOOOVED them!!!! The hearty texture is amazing. I had at least another serving straight from the bag as I was making lunch!
Love to NOLA during Mardi Gras week!
Going to the gym later this afternoon for a little indoor playground fun.
In the meantime, getting a move on on our taxes! Blah!
