Did I happen to mention that the nice folks at Swiffer Bissell offered me a neat Steam Mop to try out? This thing is AWESOME! I love that it was very easy to put together. Then you fill the steam reservoir, and attach the Swiffer pad (which actually has the cleaning agent on it). Plug it up, and the light comes on when it is ready, in all of about 30 seconds!

You then can very quickly clean your floors (I would suggest a quick sweep first, if possible). I had just mopped a few days ago, and the Swiffer SteamBoost got up quite a bit more dirt! I love how the cord easily wraps like on a vacuum, and it can hang on the wall. Personally, if you chose to use it daily to spot clean your floors, I would say you can leave the Swiffer pad in place and use for several cleanings. It will dry out, but the steam will reactivate the cleaning agent.

The Swiffer SteamBoost Steam mop was quite a handy little tool, and a good one to keep in every stressed mom’s arsenal 🙂
