Fluffier, girlier version of the Swiffer sweeper except it works a tad better (and steams)

I don't always mop my pockets - but when I do, I use the Shark Steam Pocket Mop.

A pretty good review of the "As Seen On TV" Steam Pocket Mop is at http://steammopspot.blogspot.com/2009/06/as-seen-on-tv-shark-steam-pocket-mop.html

There is a pretty good warning to people who have Pergo Laminate Floors about using this mop on those floors.

Anyone with any sense of self-respect and decency should order the lavender. Only the most villainous of cads would be so crude as to pocket mop in white after Labor Day.

A reconditioned mop? Are you serious? C'mon, Woot! Bundle these with your next bag of carrots, if you even remember what those used to be.

More reviews are at http://www.sharksteampocketmops.com/

They have the reviews broken down to Positive and Negative reviews. Seems to be more positive than negative.

I love my pocket mop as much as the next guy, but vegans would surely object at the use of shark steam in their design. Poorly thought out if you ask me.

We (and by we, I mean my parents) own an automotive repair so we are always looking for something to keep the floors clean. We bought one of these a while ago, and it works great! It steams off the oily/stuck-on grime.

We had a part of the shop that was disgusting. Barely could see the pattern of the linoleum. I used a buffer which got off 70% of the stuff on the floor, and this took off the rest (it was really gross, so this was surprisingly good)

If we didn't already have on, then I would get one!

When I first looked on The Big A it was $79.99; now it appears to be a "Deluxe" version at $89.99. Order three now, here... and steam, steam, steam.

got one of these for $39 on black friday, and it blows the swiffer wetjet away. The disposable pads of the swiffer get completely soiled very quickly, but the pads with the shark are reusable and you can even use a towel or rag instead of the pads... the steam put out by this thing is anything BUT "girlier"!

I don't get it... how is this supposed to work on a carpet?

quality posts: 16 Private Messages balisane

In for one; I saw these at Costco yesterday, wanted one, but passed it up because they were $85.

My mom tends to drop food while she's cooking and can't bend over to clean it up, so I'm hoping this will save me from spending so much time in the kitchen on my knees with a scrub brush like a '30s housewife.

likely a few open-box returns here, and the "reconditioned" ones likely saw little-to-no use before being returned.

figgers3036 wrote:I don't get it... how is this supposed to work on a carpet?



there are gliders that allow it to stay slightly above the carpet, it's more of a steam-sanitizer to loosen tough grime or "refresh" spots of your carpet... not a full carpet-steamer by any stretch

The picture shows a triangular attachment but no mop head for it. The description says it comes with it. Should I believe the picture or the description?

I like my wet mop. Then again, I don't think my carpet appreciates any mopping I do.

Cheeze do I have to actually watch the tutorial or are you going to tell me and my pergo why I should not have purchased? The steam seems to be a reasonable defense against the rats....

my refurb shark vacuum (granted, not a mop) was all kinds of defective. aside from not turning on, it was visibly dirty and icky. woot honored the warranty and took it back, but still a hassle. and gross. and disappointing.

I have one of these that I bought elsewhere a while back, and it's been great. You will need to sweep/vacuum first or otherwise it will just push around wet hair and lint, but it does a decent job on light dirt accumulation and leaves an unwaxed fake wood floor decently shiny afterwards. It also works fine on linoleum but requires more pressure due to the crevices in it. The white mop heads stay gray even after throwing them in the wash, but they still seem to work OK.

Just don't expect it to do the work for you. You still have to do a lot of pushing and mopping to keep the head steaming for best results, since the steam action is activated only when you push against the head.

I've broke down and got one. I went for White. I can't wait to try it out. I have all hard wood floors and they are a pain to clean. Swiffer just pushes the dirt around. Thanks Woot, Wish me luck on the Refurb though.

Anyone have one for over a year that uses it weekly? Reviews on Amazon brought up some longevity issues.

I read a lot of on-line reviews. They almost universally say that the mop works great for 3 months and then the steam stops coming out. The problem seems to be hard water build up causing blockage. At under $40, I thought I would take a stab at using adding a water softener or using filtered water for better results.

I'd believe the package contents picture and the In the box.

Where do you see that it comes with triangular pads?

Hey something I actually own and have used recently!

This thing is really great for getting sticky stuff off the floor, however, it does not do well with large spaces. The problem is that once you actually get the dirt off the floor it starts to accumulate quite rapidly and you are constantly in this battle between cleaning the cloth and cleaning the floor.

Honestly, I prefer a mop to this because it is a lot easier to work with if you have a lot of cleaning to do.

I have the handheld Steam Pocket cleaner and use distilled water in it, irons, anything else like that... worth it...
