    where did you get it from?

    i keep seeing the infomercial about the green mop ?X5 or something and want to buy it but am not sure if it would work all that great.

    is it easy to push over the floor? does it go straight or wobbly?

    I have heard nothing but negative comments from people I have spoken to in regards to steam mops.

    I have an enjo floorcleaner

    I can clean all of the hard floors in my house (only two bedrooms are carpeted) with less than 500ml or water and it takes only a few minutes

    I got mine from an electricak store. Yes it gies straight, really easy to use, glides on floor, cleans well and doesnt make floors too wet.Bad things are annoying to fill, the tank is supposed to detatch but its plastic and I swear it will break cos its stiff. I just lift whole mop under tap. Also cotton pads shrunk in was and are hard to fit on bottom, they don't reach clips to hold them in place. I am going to sew an elastic so it stays on.I took my dad bizzel one which was like $300 and await it back. It was really heavy and out so much water on floor.My friend is nutbag cleaner and says her enjo mop leaves streaks, but she a bit ocd.

    Do they cause long term damage to polished wooden floors? I'd like one as we're getting rid of all carpet, but I don't want to damage the floors.

    To those with a steam mop, do they clean the grout on tiled floors?

    Doesn't clean my grout... Because its not "scrubbing" it's just steaming... I find it makes the floors look magic though.
    I just run around with the normal mop and scrub any spots in the grout every week or so and that works fine for us.

    I have just got the ken wood one as a gift for Christmas. I do like it and it is easy to use with minimal effort. It does work on the tiles and cleans beautifully but not the grout. I just spot clean anyway as the mess happens to get round that problem.

    I have a Kenwood one (it's yellow and purple) and it's fantastic...was about $200 a few years back and it's really good.

    The instructions for my steam mop says that as long as you don't sit the steam mop on the floor boards for an extended period of time then it won't do any damage.

    Also easy to push around.

    And I find I need to change the mop head halfway through the clean (house has all floorboards) so it doesn't streak.

    I got a cheap steam mop from deals direct on the net. Works a treat!
