I mentioned before how I ventured out on Black Friday to get Klaeyton an $88 power wheels at Walmart. Well when Matt and I were deciding on exactly what I was going to be buying that night by going through the ads, I mentioned that Walmart was also going to be having the Shark steam mop on sale for $36. It's normally priced around $60-80 depending on where you get it. Well, this is one of the only Christmas presents I wanted and Matt told me I better come home with it or he will just be paying full price for it. So...after I nearly got trampled over a power wheels, I maneuvered my way through Walmart and nicely asked a lady standing next to the only four that were left if she would hand me one. She saw how massively pregnant I am and smiled as she handed me one. I was pretty stoked. Not only was Klaeyton making out good with me almost dying at Walmart, but I was too :)
Anywho, I've used this steam mop twice now and I absolutely love it. Here's why:
* I used to use swiffers. They are expensive. I'd have to use 4 pads to do my downstairs and there's 12 in a pack. Each pack is about $5. So each time I mopped my floors it cost me a little under $1.75. Um yeah that's crazy. With the steam mop, the initial investment is high, but the pads are washable and it uses tap water. No extra cost.
* With the swiffers, it made my back ache to mop my floors. I felt like I was just scrubbing and scrubbing. With the steam mop...I think I could mop all day and never hurt my back.
* The steam mop only uses tap water so there aren't any chemicals on the floor, which makes me feel better about Klaeyton eating food off the floor. Don't make that face. All two year olds do it, even when you try to stop them :)
* I just think my floors are so much cleaner. They feel really clean and actually sanitized. And well you can't beat that.
Here's a picture of the one I got, and yes I am obsessed. :)
If you're interested in buying one, I'd go to either Walmart or Target :)
Oh the joy of being an ordinary mom.
