Really if there were a secret to getting the men in our lives to clean, I think that it would be to fashion cleaning supplies and equipment with unique attributes that entice our men to figure out how they work, and be impressed by their outcomes, while exerting as little effort as possible. All this to say, we have a new favorite cleaning toy, I mean tool here in the kingdom! Since it looks like a tool, and is cool like a tool, the man in my life loves to use it!
I don't know about you, but I find as I age, it is much harder, to crawl around on my hands and knees to scrub the tile and hardwood floors in the house. The Prince has noticed this change, and because in part to his love for me, and because of his love of cleaning things, he is always looking for great new products to make the chores around here easier! This recommendation came to him, via a friend about a month ago.
The Shark Steam Mop Genius has revolutionized cleaning of our non carpeted surfaces here in the kingdom! Not gonna lie, I was skeptical. It looked like an over sized swifter with a power cord to me. I just was not able to wrap my head around it actually working well. Call me a believer!
The steam works through the bottom of the pad to scrub the hard surfaces, wood or tile. When one side of the cleaning pad gets dirty, with the push of a button on the rear of the tank, the pads drop down, and hands free, you can change to the cleaning pad from the dirty side to the clean, or replace the pad completely with a new clean one.
But as they say, "the proof is in the pudding" or in this case, the amount of dirt that comes off the floors! There is no longer any doubt in my mind about how the Shark cleans! After half of the kitchen floor had been steamed cleaned, this is what the pad looked like on both sides ... (no judging...)
but wow what a great clean.
I am not sure how often I will actually get to use my new toy, I mean tool, if I pull it out to clean when the Prince is around, but I can not say enough great things about the Shark Steam Mop Genius!! We did also purchase washable mop pads, so that we can keep fighting over the cleaning the floors in the kingdom!
Really team work makes life so much easier! You Can't Make this Stuff Up!!
