I’ve never been a fan of regular mops. They’re just way too much of a hassle and, not to mention, kind of gross. I’ve been a Swiffer WetJet girl for a while, and even though it has (mostly) gotten the job done over the past few years, I couldn’t ever shake the feeling that it wasn’t cutting it with all the grime that I was tracking in from the streets of NYC. This summer, I decided to splurge on a wet-dry vacuum — and it has made a world of difference. Seriously, I don’t know how I ever went without one.

That’s why — especially as the winter weather comes rolling in and slush and grime residue starts to show up more often — investing a heavy-duty cleaning tool is the most important thing you can do. If you already own a vacuum that you can’t bear to part with, but want a more efficient alternative to a Swiffer or regular old mop, a wet-dry vacuum might not be for you — but a steam mop definitely is. And, lucky enough, we have the perfect one for you: True & Tidy’s STM-300, which is almost 25 percent off right now!

What is the True & Tidy STM-300 Multi-Surface Steam Mop?

First off, you want a steam mop that can work in every area of the house, as well as tackle whatever kind of mess you throw at it. Thankfully, this workhorse from True & Tidy is compatible with any surface and can get into hard-to-reach areas with its 360-degree swivel head. The one caveat about my wet-dry vac is its bulkiness, but the STM-300 is extremely lightweight, which is handy if you’ll be covering a decent amount of ground. 

Probably the most significant bonus of this steam mop is that you’ll achieve a deep clean without producing so much waste. With a Swiffer WetJet, you go through tons of the cleaning pads and solution, but this guy requires zero chemicals and comes with a machine-washable pad. Just pop the cloth on and power it up, and it’ll heat to 212 degrees in as fast as 30 seconds. Then, you’re all good to go for a 15-minute cleaning session before needing to refill the water tank.
