Not for pet hair!


Mop is nice and handy. I like the reuseable pads.

I haven't written a review because I LOVED it right off and was actually waiting to see if I would still love it after a week. I DO! I am so impressed with this little thing. It picked up rice, and even french fries. It's not for a major scrub down but...

Earth friendly. washable/reusable parts. Good suction for it's size. light weight. Fun to use.

Can't tell when the battery if fully charged.

picks up very well, easy to use, convenient

mop left bad streaks on laminate wood flooring
