This is definitely my favorite cleaning tool. It's a green cleaner because it uses steam so no chemicals ever. This also uses far less water than with a traditional bucket. The covers are machine washable so there is literally zero waste. No chemicals means more storage space and fewer bottles of "stuff" to keep track of. It is very easy to use and since there is no mess and no dirty water, even an older child can do this. It gets my floors much cleaner than a mop and bucket ever did, since there is no dirty water to spread around.
the entire unit simply flips over if you're in the middle of cleaning and find you want to use the clean side of the head. I found since I have no carpets in most of my home that I needed a spare set of the covers, but this is optional and depends how often you do laundry. There is a carpet steaming attachment to freshen carpets but I haven't tried that part yet as I only have one carpet in the entire home.
In Essence this product achieves Balanced Bliss as it's Green (uses no chemicals, saves water) it's going to save you money in the long run (nothing is disposable, no chemicals to purchase) it saves you time (floors cleaner much faster & dries faster) and it will clean and disinfect very well, in fact it cleans so easily I was amazed at how willing my kids are to mop floors now. Enjoy!
