  • i just got the shark steam mop. i love it. no residue and i don't have to spend money on cleaners. i couldn't believe how dirty my floors were even though i scrubbed them first.

  • I get down on my hands and knees and use a washcloth. Everything else seems to leave a residue or streaks. I use Clorox Green all purpose cleaner or a vinegar/water solution for cleaner.

  • The hand-n-knee method is good! I do have a dirt devil floor keeper, and it does not leave any residue, and my floors come out looking good, but I would NOT recommend it to anyone...it leaks bad so I do have to go over the area quite a bit to get all the water cleaned up...other complain about it leaking as well.

    If I had the means I would junk it and get the hover floormate...the reviews on that are GREAT!!! I wish at times that I got the hoever floor mate the at first.....

  • I use a libman sponge mop, then when im done I go back over with a dry towel to dry the floor so i dont have to wait for it to dry and usually dont have any residue, I also use the clorox green works, I love it.

  • I use a Swiffer Wet Jet or just get down and use Clorox wipes... but we have a small kitchen.

  • Once a week I do the floors on my hands and knees then between those times I use a swiffer.
