    It's definitely quick and easy to vacuum my hard floors now..just need a quicker way to mop and I will be set!
    I had this, loved it & didn't scratch the boards. Didn't have a very long life span though. But I had the first model so assuming it has improved in the last few years.

    I have heard of that Electrolux vac, choice gave it a good writeup and there are a few different models. My friend had one as well and she said the same thing, it died. She now has a Rowenta which I think I might buy, and maybe a cheapie steam mop as well.

    This is what I really want tho. A cordless robovac that steam-mops the floor while vacuuming up the water and dirt. For $99. And it will bring me a nice cuppa and bicky when its done ha ha

    I have hardwood floor - jarrah which you can see every grain of sand and streak on. I have a electolux cordless carpet cleaner which does a great job wizzing around with kiddy crumbs. For a bigger clean I use my standard vacume and I have a monster steam mop. I swear by it.

    I like the look of the sabco and it gets glowing reviews online! I'm not sure I understand how it works though. Do you get one spray per squeeze? Do you have to continually squeeze as you walk around? That would be a bit painful!

    Hmmm the monster looks good too but I don't think I can splash out on a mop as well as a stick vac. Another vote for Electrolux tho, they're very popular!

    I too have hardwood floors. I have a Dyson stick cleaner I use first,and I have bought the kit from sabco for $20 to try. Absolutely love it.. Leaves floors really clean & shiny & they dry in no time.

    Yea its one spray per squeeze but thw sprays cover the width of the mop and u can angle it and spray a fair way in front. Plus once thw pad on the mop is a little wet you don't have to spray as much

    Hardwood floors, stick vacuum and spray mop here too. I love both these devices. We use the stick vac a few times a day. It's a rowena brand but pretty powerful at 18v. Only issue is that I put of using the normal vacuum and under the couches never gets done. I've got a steam mop and I love the finish but it's a PITA to use. I'm waiting for a cordless one to come out.
