Great Purchase


This wet and dry mop is easy to use. It takes away the work of mopping with a regular mop.

This is awkward and doesn't reach under kitchen cabinets, had to get out broom and mop. My back hurts after pushing it around. It would be OK for a hallway or living room I suppose.

It's a keeper. It does everything as advertised: vacuums, wet cleans and dries the floor at a reasonable price.

Get one w/ heater


Without the water being hot, it really doesn't clean your floor that well. So I suggust to buy the model with a heater on it. The vacumn part works fine though.

I really want to love this machine....but I don't.


I've had the Bissell Flip-It for several years.  There is just two of us and 3 cats - so lots of cat hair.  I keep using it and hoping I'm just doing something wrong but I just can't seem to get it to work effectively. 

Can clean well, nice smelling cleaner, sufficient cord lenght

Leaks, a pain to clean, leaks, not much suction, leaks

Flips but doesn?t clean very well.


I was looking for an easy way to clean my tile floors downstairs. They are dark brown tiles, and most products such as the Swiffer left a streaky sheen on the dark tiles. I am not very good with a bucket and mop and the cats run around on the wet floor...

Dry and wet vacuum.

Neither work very well.

Wonderful Bissell Flip It!


In November my husband and I bought our first house. The entire house has laminate flooring except for the two bathrooms that both have tile. Sweeping and mopping with a regular broom and mop was becoming quiet a chore. My sister who has four ...

Cleans laminate quickly and efficiently and leaves a nice fresh scent.

I have to switch cleaning solution from laminate to tile.
