Ok, Steve and I went out last night and picked up this new little toy for me to play with.
I didn't try it out last night when we got home, I just unpackaged it and left it on the kitchen table.
At 5:30am, I was up with it plugged in heating, and was mopping my floors with it.
I am impressed, as yesterday I mopped all my floors while cleaning house and not much was tracked in, in the way of dirt or wet foot prints, and the white pad I used this morning was dirty after I got done. I do plan to use this daily til all build up is off the floors, for I have used Lysol/Mr Clean products on them when I mop, and the commericals say it will clean build-up.
When I first used it, the steam smell, smelt like ironing day thru the house. I didn't care for that smell. And the instructions say use only tap water or distilled, no chemicals or scented oils, stuff like that. But it didn't say not to use vinegar. I put just a tablespoon in my water when I got ready to use it yet again on my floors. Yes, I did them again. The smell is clean, and no more ironing day reminders of growing up with a day dedicated to that task.
Now if only I could figure out how to rotate my house so I could use it on the walls, and ceilings. It's very easy to use, and not so hard on the back like scrubbing with mop or on hands and knees.
I think the money invested in this is going to be well spent. JMO
