The $65 Cleaning Tool That Does All the Scrubbing for You Is Finally Back in Stock and It’ll Get Your Floors Spotless
If you prefer to clean your floors with a traditional mop and bucket, bless you. However, for my entire adult life, I’ve chosen to wipe my floors down with a more self-contained cleaning instrument — namely, a Swiffer with pads pre-soaked in cleaning solution. While this isn’t the most responsible or economical choice (considering all the pads I throw away and all the refills I buy) a regular mop seems too inconvenient. However, I know there are newer mops that are just as quick as my go-to disposable option and don’t create so much waste — and there’s a particularly powerful one on sale right now.
This device, called a Hover Scrubber, is essentially a miniature version of the industrial floor buffers that custodians use to keep shopping malls spotless. It has two rotating brush heads that scrub out dirt and polish up any hard surfaces — wood, tile, laminate, and linoleum — and includes different kinds of reusable cloth covers that don’t contribute to the waste stream. Plus, it’s over 15 percent off at QVC right now, and if you’re a new QVC customer, you can use the code NEWQVC30 for an extra $30 off!
Compared to old-school mops, this one gets your floors looking fresh in less time and with less effort on your part. As you move it around, the motorized brush heads remove stuck-on dirt and grease so you don’t have to do any back-and-forth scrubbing to wipe away residue from spilled food, dirty shoes, muddy pet paws, or any stain sources. The brushes can cut through most messes without you needing to add any water or cleaning spray on the floor. (For tougher jobs, just give the surface a little spritz.) When you’re done, you can toss them in the washing machine to get refreshed.
QVC made this kit an especially smart deal because they’re throwing in a full pack of accessories that make the Hover Scrubber more versatile. In addition to the two microfiber pads, you’ll get two chenille pads (which have long, shaggy strands that sweep up extra dust) and a wide pad that attaches to the front of the device via magnets to wipe down your baseboards as you clean your floors (something an old mop could never do). It’s also slim enough to tuck away in a corner and keep out of sight when you’re not using it. Once it’s fully charged, you can use it for 60 minutes non-stop, although you’ll likely finish all your floors in much less time.
If you want a quicker and easier way to get shiny floors throughout your home, this tool is an ideal solution. Just make sure to pick one up soon — they’re likely to sell out fast.
