Most moms multi-task a lot - just because it's part of the job.
I, for example, can hold a baby, cook dinner, play the train game with my 2-year-old, and send a text message to somebody all at the same time.
It might be nice to be able to focus intently on concocting a 5-course meal or to be able to just hold the baby with nary a care in the world, but that's not always practical.
Because of this reality, I appreciate products that multitask.
The Hoover FloorMate ($99) is one such product. It vacuums, mops, AND dries. One product with multiple functions. Gotta love that.
As I mentioned before, it does a fantastic job. Whenever my husband uses it, the floors end up looking quite sparkly (Yes, I did say: my husband. He's the resident mopper 'round these parts. And, yes, he does sometimes mop with our 2-year-old on his back. What a guy, right?).
That said, we have a rather expansive great room and it takes FOREVER to vacuum, mop, and dry the whole area. That's a downside because time is of the essence. A traditional mop would be much faster.
Of course, if time is our biggest consideration, we should probably just hire a maid (we are considering that, by the way).
Overall, though, this product is a great multi-tasking machine.
YOUR TURN: (A) Who does the mopping in your house? (B) Do you utilize maid service?
