Which one do you like?

Swiffer wet/dry
O-Cedar
Scotch brite
Bona

For thorough cleaning, I use my hands n knees. I'm looking for something I can use for quick-every-night mop cleaning.

Get a Bissel steam mop and you won't have to scrub on your hands and knees and you won't need any other mops.

This was seriously the best cleaning device I ever bought. It gets my floors cleaner than anything and it's so easy to use. However, it's not good for all types of flooring, so check that out first.

True about flooring but I assumed that any kind of floor that is being cleaned on hands and knees or with a Swifter is not a hardwood floor.

But other than wood (which you don't use water on anyway), a steam mop is the best for hard surfaces - tile, vinyl, marble, stone.

I had a kitchen floor that was a disaster because "someone" had spilled raisins and then walked over them and then they dried. With the steamer, I just let the steamer sit on the dried caked on mess and it came right up. In my past life, I would have had to be on my hands and knees with a putty knife trying to get it off.

Mine was fairly inexpensive and you don't need any kind of cleaning products except the recommended distilled water which is pretty cheap in the big bottles.

I use the miracle mop with the shmatte that can be removed and washed in the machine. I've been using it for years and I keep on buying it again and again. I have a bunch of shmattes that come to it so I always have a clean mop no matter what.

It's getting more confusing.
I have the miracle mop for years. It's OK on the hardwood floors. I need for the kitchen- ceramic hard to clean tiles. I need to wash it every. day.
Is the Bissell quick n easy to use? I don't want something that I need to get rags from upstairs and pails, up n down...Oh, and I don't mind using chemicals. I actually like the clean washed up scent it leaves.

I use it for all my flooring and it works terrific. Why do you think it's not good for ceramic?

It's a very glossy, cold, tile. Dirt dries hard on it. The miracle mop doesn't scrub it off well without tons of effort. Also corners need something better. Whoever tried washing this particular floor, realizes it doesn't work.

Do you mean the one with simple flat head or the one you can put in soap and water and squeeze it out?
