A review of the best mops and the best steam mop based on consumer reviews and ratings.
In order to find a really great mop, the best indicator of greatness is of course consumer reviews. Mopping is tiring, I don’t know about you, but I really dislike mopping.
Why? The obvious reasons include that it is back breaking work, messy and the smell of the cleaning detergent bothers me.
The best way to mop is quick, easy and gets the job done right the first time. Why bother mopping if you’re not going to make those floors shine?
Most people agree with me on those points, so I’m going to present to you some of the best mops and steam mops based on consumer reviews.
The Eureka 313 A Enviro Steamer
This mop is hard to beat with over 800 reviews which give it a 4 star rating. What do consumers think about this mop?
• It produces the second hottest steam in its class of mops, only to be beaten by the Monster steam mop which is only 50 degrees hotter.
The Eureka generates steam at temperatures of 220 degrees. The hotter the steam, the greater the cleaning and disinfecting power.
• It has a very long cord length. Consumers loved that the length of the cord is 25 feet, which is among the longest offered.
• Huge water capacity of 20 oz. which allows you to clean for 20 + minutes. Other similar mops usually have a water capacity between 8 and 19 oz.
The only other mop to have a large capacity is the Steamboy at 24 oz. however, this only steamed for 12 minutes. This makes the Eureka at the top of the class when it comes to length of steam cleaning offered.
• An excellent mop at an excellent price. Can you believe that the cost of this machine is below $65? The prize tend to fall even more around the holidays. Visit Amazon to see for yourself.
The Bissell 1867-7 Steam Mop
This mop has a four star rating from over 700 consumers and costs only around $70.
Let's move straight into the details and take a look at what other customers are saying about this mop:
• It is extremely easy to use, clean up after and it is very quiet.
The fact that it is so quiet means that you can steam at any time without worrying that the noise would cause a bother.
• Swivel head action works well
• Works well on all types of floor, including sealed hardwood.
• The water on the floor dries very quickly after steaming, reducing the risk of slipping on a wet floor.
... and, just for fun ...
The Slipper Genie Microfiber Cleaning Slippers
I included this mop because … it is simply just too cool! Whoever came up with this idea, really must have had kids in mind.
I think it’s a great way to get your kids involved in cleaning and it comes in bright pink and green which makes it so much more attractive.
All you have to do to clean is walk … sounds good to me!
At around $10, this slipper mop is a great deal and it has a four star rating from Amazon.
So are other consumers as thrilled as I am about this mop?
Let’s see what they say:
• They are comfortable and easy to use
• They are great to wear about the home especially on hardwood floors. As you go about your day you’re cleaning at the same time!
• Work really well for picking up dog and cat hairs. If you have pets, you should get a pair of these!
• Re-washable and reusable
• Fun and useful
• Some found that the little “hairs” tend to fall out after awhile
Overall, this is a fun product but not for serious cleaning (see the previous two mops for more productive and effective cleaning).
