The Shark Steam Mop worked really well for me today in my Fall cleaning spree. I do not like doing floors, especially mopping: buckets of sloshing water, wringing the mop out, etc. I did not have to deal with any of that today and my floors are clean. As the box stated, the proof is on the pad or in my case pads. I am throwing the pads in the washing machine so that next time I'll start out with a clean pad and not a dirty mop. I declare the Shark Steam Mop a deal and would recommend it.
