Someone told me about the Shark Pocket and told me that she just loved it. I saw it on sale and since I had been wanting to try one, I bought it and figured that if I didn't like it, I could bring it back. Once I tried it, I loved it too. My kitchen floor is the type of vinyl that hides the dirt in the little pockets and even though I knew I washed it, I could still see the dirt.
I tried time and time again to get up the dirt by scrubing it on my hands and knees with a scrub brush but that didn't work. I thought nothing would get the floor clean.
I was so surprised the Shark got up some of that dirt the first time and with only steam.
My husband walked in just as I was finishing up the first time. He said ("wow that looks a lot cleaner!"). Now, my husband does not say "wow" very often. I knew this was a keeper. With each wash, more of that dirt comes up, and the floor is looking good.
Just remember to keep water in the tank, because it will stop steaming when it runs too low. Also remember to pump before you start your first stroke and again before taking it apart.
I use it on my couch, chairs, matresses and carpet. It brings the knap up in heavy traffic areas. The steaming on the furniture makes it smell fresher, and makes me feel better about having company because the germs are fewer if not gone.
One more thing - make sure not to force the mop head in or out of the handle. If you turn the square opening side of the top of the head piece to the back, it will just slip in and latch fine.
I would like to see an attachment for doing the furniture. I feel like the rooms are truly refreshed after steaming, but but some will find it too much trouble because it is very awkward to do the furniture.
