The GOOD: I absolutely love that I'm cleaning the floors that my kids crawl all over with steam. Nothing harmful at all. It dries almost instantly so no yelling at them "don't walk in here!" or having them run through and unexpectantly bust their rumps. LOL :)
It also has a long cord and reaches far. I have between 500-600 sq. ft of floors to be cleaned with it and I can get two full cleanings out of one tank of water. It comes with a corner attachment which is nice behind toilets!!!
The BAD: It is a bit expensive for what it is. It is the "Pocket Mop" model and I got mine at Kohls with a 30% coupon for around $85. It doesn't quite clean like the informercial. For example: my kids splattered ketchup on the floor in front of the fridge...I still had to scrape it up. Boo!

I like to crochet so I crocheted a mop head with peaches and cream thread to fit over the swiffer mop head then I thread elastic through the crocheted mop so it fits over the top of the mop. When I mop I spray the floor with white vinegar and water. Then mop with my homemade mop head.
When I'm finished I take off the mop head throw it in the wash and have a clean mop head to start with next time. I found it more ecological and I like the mop head with the nubs from crocheting cleans better. I use a mix of vinegar and 1/2 c. + 1 gallon water put in spray bottle.
I like to think of my body as that of the SHARK. I know the shark must keep moving to stay alive. I apply this same logic to myself. So, when I don't feel like getting up off the couch and moving my body. I remember the SHARK and SWIM for MY LIFE!!!
