Top five steam mops
Stuck in a never-ending floor cleaning cycle? Ditch the mop and bucket with one of these newfangled steam mops, designed to make cleaning a breeze
Mumsnet Best: This no-nonsense device is a favourite for its ease of use and sheer power.
"It's simple and easy to use: fill it with water, plug it in and in around eight minutes you're ready to begin."
"It is surprisingly powerful, cleaning most of the grime off a very dirty oven. It cleans my showers with ease and makes cleaning the floors less of a chore."
Mumsnetters love the versatility of the detachable handheld unit on
this Black & Decker beauty.
"It's extremely satisfying to steam and simply wipe away muddy water,
leaving perfectly clean surfaces."
"The mop is incredibly easy to put together - straightforward instructions are included but they weren't needed."
Another 2-in-1 device, the Vax S86-SF-CC also includes a tank for cleaning fluid - maximum convenience, minimum effort.
"The mop is what I mostly use it for - it brings my wood, tile and laminate floors up beautifully and dries so quickly."
"The addition of the cleaning fluid tank is a genius idea as I can add a little scented liquid to leave my home smelling beautiful."
Quick to heat up and suitable for a wide range of floors, this Morphy Richards model cleans carpets too.
"I use it on my bathroom tiles, my slate kitchen floor and wooden floorboards and it genuinely make a real difference to how the floor feels - it's squeaky clean and fresh!"
"My floors are really clean, and you can throw the pads into the washing machine then put them back on."
With attachments for cleaning windows and steaming clothes as well as
floors, the Thane H20 is truly multi-purpose.
"It really does do a great job. It heats up super fast, it's easy to set up and it cleans my fairly big kitchen floor really well."
"As a mop it is small and light to use but effective - and adjustable steam levels make it great for all floor coverings, even carpet and rugs with the carpet attachment."
