This 2-in-1 Mop-Vacuum is Perfect for Pet Owners and Parents With No Time for Dirty Floors
Photo: Scouted/The Daily Beast/Tineco.Let me set the stage for you: picture a kitchen where afternoon sunlight shines bright, crisply illuminating white cabinets, lightly flecked pale gray countertops, and large squares of matte charcoal tile on the floor. It’s a lovely tableau, to be sure, which is good because we spent a lot of effort in creating it. But now let’s zero in on that floor, because as it turns out that on dark, matte tiles, just about every crumb or speck of dust stands out starkly, especially when the aforementioned sunshine is pouring in.And now that the stage is set, let’s meet the characters: we have my and I, both of whom are a bit more concerned with cleanliness than most, our two kids (who are not as concerned) and our two cats, who could not care less. Given the minimum of two daily meals eaten in the kitchen (and usually three a day on weekends), the snacks, the play activities on the island, and the cat bowls in the corner, there’s a lot of action in this space. And in this case, action means crumbs, cat hair, pencil shavings, gobs of playdough, cat hair, stray cat food, bits of leaves or pine needles, and of course, more cat hair.In any light, the tiles of our kitchen do little to hide any dirt, dust, crumbs, and so forth—and as noted, in bright light, the mess is magnified, minimal though it may be. As I said, the adults love a clean house, which means nightly vacuuming of the entire tiled kitchen, and at least every three nights, one of us would also move the chairs out of the space and push a corded steam mop all around the room after the vacuum pass.
