        • Hi Kristin,

          I’m not sure if this counts, but a steamer mop is supposed to take out the whole scrubbing part of mopping. It takes a while, though, as you hold it while it steams each area. 🙂

          • I had a steamer but it honestly doesn’t make my wood floors shiny they way they like to claim it will. It also felt sticky and as if it pulled up the stain so I just do things the old fashioned way. Even though it kills me. I dont have much scrubbing since I try to daily but it still hurts me. The motion of it.
