A Bissell Steam Mop? Let me explain...Last week my boss and I had a great conversation regarding how he was going to use his Visa card “points” that he had gained over the past year through purchases. His idea was to cash these Visa rewards points in and use them to purchase his brother’s wedding gift for the upcoming wedding in Mexico instead of using good old cash. This conversation got me thinking; just how many “points” do I have sitting there in my rewards points account? I have to tell you that when I checked my balance it was just like finding real money (notes, not simple change) under the cushions of my couch; the feeling was great! I decided immediately to cash these points in and gave myself a treat of a gift card to do some shopping.
Primarily, I thought I would be practical and purchase some of the stuff I use all the time such as tea, bread, milk and some steaks. I walked around my usual large store and put a few of these staples into my basket. I then decided “hey, it’s almost pay day, why don’t I buy something I have wanted for a long time and something that I need?” I put the food staples back where I got them and headed straight for the cleaning supplies isle. There it sat before me, behold the Bissell Steam Mop. This mop was something I had seen on TV and had always wanted to try it. This would be a good story for my boss. I immediately took the steam mop up to the checkout and used the gift card from my credit card company and raced home to try the product out.
This steam mop has been touted to get rid of dirt, sticky stuff, and grime on all hard floor surfaces (not carpet). My apartment was in great need of a solid cleaning and had been for some time so I could not wait to get started. My apartment consists of beautiful bamboo floors with nice dark tiles in the kitchen and bathroom. The only problem with these nice surfaces is that mud, dirt and grime easily shows up. The disposable mopping systems I had been using in the past just have not cut it and I had grown tired of buying replacement heads and wipes for my mop.
I took the Bissell mop out of the box and plugged it in. The steam charged in seconds and was ready to use. I started on the bamboo floors and was simply amazed at how much of the dirt got removed; it was just like moving into a new apartment! The product handled equally well on the tiled floor, the microfiber heads cut through the grime with ease; I was impressed. I invited my mother over that weekend for brunch and she could not believe how much I time I had spent on getting the place spotless. “About ten minutes!” I replied. At less than one hundred dollars this product is the real deal and I would recommend it to any homeowner with hard floors.
