Hard Floor Cleaner

Which one do you think is better, and why? I'm personally leaning towards the Hoover. It looks more durable and the ratings I am finding seem to be higher... consistently.

Do you own either?

A - Bissell Flip-It Select Hard Floor Cleaner
B - Hoover Floor Mate Hard Floor Cleaner

  • Vinegar, water, and a rag work well for my floors.

    I like not having to store and haul a big piece of equipment.

  • As the old stand by and best for any surface,

    just a bar of soap and hot water / cloth. (wet, then dry)

  • Bissell never scores high in the consumer tests. They are cheaply made and cheaply priced. I'd go with Hoover every time.

  • I refuse to clean my 3 story 1,300 foot home with a bar of soap and hot water. LOL. Absolutely not. I have three cats, a puppy, and a toddler. I'd be on my hands and knees (no pun intended) every freakin day!

  • I had the Hoover when we owned a very large home with lots of HW- I gave it away when we moved and down sized. I use Methods diluted and a large towel or vinegar and hot water + the large towel. I use my feet and just walk around and clean it manually-

  • Our entire house is hard floor. There's not an ounce of carpet.
