  • I loved the Shark while it worked, but 2 months later it died. I use a Libman refillable mop that looks like a Swiffer. Works beautifully, pads are reusable and washable and you get to pick the cleaning solution. Under $20 at the store.

  • I love my swiffer and the cleaner's smell so good. (my opinion) I love the idea of not pushing durt around and the white sock test has always been perfect in my home. Good Luck.....

  • Tried all the above. Bought the swifter, a big hardwood thing with a cover, a H2O machine, a Oreck buffer and wax.and the purple one that sprays cleaner. I was not happy with any of them. I have cherry hardwood floors, 2 dogs and a long haired cat. and after cleaning the floor and waxing the floor, I still had dirty feet. So Now I use a hardwood cleaner, PolyClean, You add a gallon water to a 1/4 cup. Let that dry, then I lightly spray Pledge on the floors and buff. Really nice shine but let it dry for a while before walking on it. I tell my DH as he walks across the wet floor. I still have to do it every week. and that is still a 2 step process.
