I have a Wet Jet for work, love it. Recently got the Swiffer Vac, love it. Just picked up this little unit for home. While I love the Wet Jet, I thought w/our "new", old place, and all the cockatoo dust and "dog dirt", a steamer would benefit me. There is a lot of old, ground in dirt (previous occupants didn't do much, if any, cleaning), and I am going to have to do a hand scrub job. But oh boy, just tried this out and the junk that came up! I went over it twice w/two separate pads, both came out almost black...eww! I had been using an old outdated Wet Jet precursor, just wanted to use up the last of the solution, and I thought it was cleaning, but boy howdy, I KNOW the Swiffer Steam Mop is working! Heats up quickly, pads really suck up the dirt and dries quickly as well. A must have for anyone w/not a lot of hard floor area (well, maybe for those with a lot too!). Oh, and anyone who would like washable pads instead of disposable, think of this...I have had other "big" steamers before. ALL the washable pads shrink and or the velcro gets buggered up. Disposable pads are so much easier to use and no frustration!
