When the Shark Pocket Mop came out I was one of the first to buy it. I loved that I could sanitize my floors without using chemicals. It drove me crazy though. I had to pump the handle like crazy to get the steam to come out and since there was no off button any time I unplugged it from the wall it sparked at me. About 3 years later, it totally died. RIP Shark Pocket Mop and I had no plans to purchase another one because of my experience.
Then I got the chance to review a new model. It is called the Shark 2-in-1 Blast & Scrub Steam Pocket Mop and OMG IT IS AWESOME!! If I was a millionaire, I would buy one for all my friends and family members. It is so cool! With the Shark 2-in-1 Blast & Scrub Steam Pocket Mop you can clean your floors, entry door ways, doors, counter tops, bathtubs, stoves, sinks and more. The options are almost endless!
I was pretty bummed because I ended up having emergency surgery a couple of days after it arrived. I was in so much pain it took sometime before I was even able to take it out the box. However, when I did it was hard for me to stop. It was so much fun to play with. I love that I no longer have to pump to make steam. It does ALL THE WORK for me! When it comes to unplugging it from the wall it doesn’t spark at me. I just hit the button to make the steam stop wait a few seconds and unplug it.
The first thing I did was clean the floors.
The packaging was awesome. Nothing had a scratch on it, and it was well packed. The directions were easy to read, and it was very simple to install all the attachments.
I went to the store and bought distilled water because it says it is best to use that type of water. I never used this with my last steam mop which could have been the reason it died after only three years. I really love this mop, so I want to give it it’s best chance.
I think the pictures speak for themselves, but I will say that it worked awesome! We have a vacuum mop, and the steam mop exceeded my exceptions. It cleaned things off the floors that my vacuum mop was never able to. So after cleaning all the floors, I decided to take it to the kitchen and use one of the tools. There has been this sticky stuff on the floor since we moved in. It almost seems like someone dropped a piece of gum when they were working on the place and couldn’t get it all up themselves. I have tried the vacumn mop and even this new steam mop. The regular pad did not work. I tried the Direct Steam Nozzle attachment, and it worked within seconds! I have tried soaking this spot and nothing! Within seconds, this steamer could get something that had been on my floor for over a year.
The next thing I did was attack my kid’s kiddy table. This table sees food, markers, paint and spilled milk on a daily basis. It also is impossible to clean the sides or under it, but with the Scrub Blast Accessory tool, it was a breeze! Their table hasn’t been this clean for a while. I usually use 409 and let it soak when they are sleeping and wipe it off, but this is much safer, and it came out a lot cleaner. I think even my son was in shock of how clean it was. Haha.
The last tool we used was the EZ Reach Bending Duster Accessory. This is perfect for our refrigerator and high areas a short girl like me can’t reach. We have a stainless steel fridge, and it seems like no matter, what I use it still leaves streaks, but the steamer left it looking really nice.
I mean really!!! Look at that? It looks beautiful again. Well at least for a couple of hours. My toddlers are messy little guys, but the Shark 2-in-1 Blast & Scrub Steam Pocket Mop is making my life a whole lot easier and my house a lot cleaner! A bonus is that my husband finds it so much fun that he wants to help. It makes a great gift for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day or for the stay at home mom or dad who could just use a little help!
