    Anyone have a h2o steam mop? Is it one of the good ones?

    I have a monster and it was expensive but 5.5 years on its still going strong. Mine came with a few attachments. It came with a terry towelling pad but I just cut up a couple of old cloth nappy squares and they work just the same.

    It does clean well and dry fast but I find I still need to mop with a mop and bucket every few weeks to really lift the dirt and grease.

    Tip, I put a few drops of eucalyptus oil on the pad and it makes the house smell amazing.

    Mine also brings up the shower a treat.

It was on the more expensive side but I love it!
    Can I ask how much your Electrolux mop was? and does it come with attatchments? Thanks.

    It was over $300, it does not have a lot of attachments only for carpets. I don't know whether you can purchase additional attachments or not. But I had a monster and the handle broke after 18 months so you don't always get what you pay for.

    I bought the kenwood, as did my friend, and we both had them break down after a year. It was also not good to manouver in my opinion. I now have the h2o and find it really good. I was skeptical as to how good it might be but I can't fault it. Feels a bit "plastic-y" and not sturdy but does a great job and is light to use. On the hardwood floor issue....a family member has installed timber floors for twenty years and says steam mops are not recommended because often people over-do the steam, however they're fine if you are careful. Don't use too much steam so it doesn't get too wet. Our house is all timber and we use it without problem.

    I have a bit of an off-topic question, I sweep AND vacuum immediately prior to steam mopping but still somehow manage to get lines of dust all over my tiles. Anyone know why this is and how I can prevent it?

    The only thing I can suggest is changing the head, if its a sock type one they get terribly wet and dirty and need changing often. Mine is a Velcro head and I go through 2 every time I mop and it is very streak free

    If you are going to use it on wood floors get one with adjustable steam and use it on the lowest setting. I have a bissell liftoff and it is awesome if you use it properly.
