Even if I wipe down my floor every day, it still manages to get grimy immediately afterward. It’s a hazard of living in New York City; the dirt will always find a way to accumulate. I’m positive that the situation would improve if I had the right cleaning tool on hand, though. You won’t catch me with a traditional mop, which I think is way more trouble than it’s worth. My roommate owns a vac-mop, but it’s a little too bulky to bring out for a quick daily cleaning. The only other option is my Swiffer WetJet, which doesn’t tackle filth nearly as effectively. Plus, it becomes a little pricey (and wasteful) to keep buying pad replacements. 

Because so many AT editors swear by them, I’ve had a steam mop on my wish list for a while. Seeing that I already own (and love) a vacuum from Shark, I thought I’d bring my search there first. At retailers like Wayfair and Amazon, the cleaning brand’s Genius Steam Pocket Mop is going for as much as $50 more than at QVC, where it’s on sale for only $80. Better yet, two members of the AT team have given it their stamp of approval. Read on to get their thoughts!

What Is the Shark Genius Steam Pocket Mop?

If you want to give your floor a more thorough cleaning than ever before (without the hassle), this steam mop is a great bet. Its electronic Intelligent Steam Control has three settings that you can alternate between depending on the mess, and the blaster technology will get into all of the nooks and crannies and eliminate tough stains. The bundle includes an ingenious mop head, two dirt drip pads, triangular head (for getting into narrow areas), triangular pad, and fill flask. It only weighs a little over six pounds, so taking it from room to room will be a breeze.

“The Shark Genius cleans my floors just as well as the mop-and-bucket method, with two clear advantages: It negates the need to buy floor cleaning products — all you need is water — and there is virtually no cleanup after the task,” contributor Marlen wrote, noting that you just toss the reusable pads into the washing machine.

Contributor Erin was gifted hers by her grandma, who had used it for several years prior (so you know it’ll last). “I’ve found this helpful in my kitchen to get up food stains, clear out corners, and even clean my grout,” she added.
