We have a lot of tile in our house and, as a result, my husband sometimes uses the Swiffer to mop up our house (especially when he wants to do it quickly). It does a decent job, I suppose...but the smell is intoxicating and heady - in a bad way. I feel like I have to open all of the windows just to be able to breathe.
That has worried me for a while now - especially since I have a baby and a preschooler who spend a lot of time on or near the ground.
I'm happy to announce that I can officially say sayonara to the Swiffer because we now have something MUCH BETTER, thanks to Euroflex.
Euroflex sent me the Monster EZ1 Steam Mop and Floor Cleaner (~$89.99) to review and my "housekeeper husband" (he does all the mopping around here) gives it two thumbs up. It's lightweight, easy to use, and it gets results. All you have to do is fill up the boiler with distilled water, wait 3 minutes until the light comes on, and start mopping. No chemicals are involved at all! The heat does all the work...and it does it well! Best of all, you can clean pretty speedily (and the floor dries quickly too...no slippery surfaces!). After you're done, just toss the microfibre pad in the washing machine and you're done. It's so easy, in fact, that I might do it myself. But then my husband would have to hold the baby AND play with our 2-year-old. He prefers to mop and I prefer to hold the baby and do arts & crafts with our 2-year-old...so it's an excellent arrangement.
The Monster EZ1 also comes with a "carpet sledge" so that you can clean your carpets with it as well. My husband tried that and he said it works for "the basics," but not for stains (but it's not really designed to do deep cleaning).
Overall, the Monster EZ1 is an excellent product - it will "scare away" all your dirt and debris and you can rest easy knowing that your floors will be clean AND chemical-free.
You can buy the Monster EZ1 on Amazon.com for $89.99 (and get 2 bonus microfibre pads).
