Cleaning my kitchen floors (not to mention a house full of hardwood floors) is one of my least favorite tasks, especially this time of year, when mud is tracked in daily. So when I was introduced to this smart combo of mop and vacuum, I was instantly smitten. The FloorMate is outfitted with spinning brushes and a tank with cleaning solution, plus a second tank to suck up the dirty water. It's amazing to see how fast it cleans my floors, with no leaning over and no scrubbing by hand. (Also, it's kind of terrifying to see how dirty the water is afterwards!) A huge hit at our house right now.
