I'm thinking about getting a Shark cleaning mop and I'd like to know if anyone else has one and do they like it. I'm not sure about cleaning with just water.

I checked out the Shark, and got an "H2O Mop" instead, because the Shark has an oblong head, while the H2O has a triangular head. I find the H2O fits into the corners and tight places, like behind the toilet, better because of the head shape. As to cleaning with water, it is the steam that you are cleaning with, not the hot water. The steam does a great job of cleaning and disinfecting floors. I use it on kitchen vinyl, bathroom ceramic, as well as on my hardwood floors and it works great.
I have one and really love it!
I have a shark and really like it. But then my house doesn't get really dirty either (I'm lucky for once!) I also appreciate the reduction in the amount of chemicals I dump into my septic tank.
I just got one and so far I love it. It came with 2 different heads, rectangular and triangle, and a carpet glider. I have cleaned my laminate floors, and bathroom/laundry room tile and they feel so clean. It even loosened all the build up from hair product over spray.
I have it and like it.
The non-cotton pads glide better than the cotton pads. This is for smooth floors - not tile floors with jagged edges! Wish they had an on and off switch for fingertip control instead of having to unplug the unit.
I just purchased one at Walmart a few weeks ago, for $79. So far I love it, but wished it came with more than 2 pads. Works great on bathroom tile, laminate, and the old linoleum flooring (we are rehabbing our home built in 1959). I was surprised at how deep it cleaned on the old floor. As far as the pads go, I toss them in with whites and a little bleach and they are as good as new. Thinking about crocheting a few pads for it and will let you know how they came out :o)
My Wife has used it, about 4 times. I guess she let it sit too long because it blew a gasket and won't make steam. Being an Engineer she said I should be able to fix it. Apparently it dried out the tube feeding the steam engine water and the hose broke. Both ends of the hose connected to the steam engine are so dried and brittle I threw it in the garbage. I won't buy another, it is dangerous!
I have found a way to get these pads clean. Use a large plastic bowl. The ones you get at WalMart for $5.00 fill the largest bowl 3/4 way with cold water. Pout water into 6 quart pot, put on stove and bring to a full rolling boil. While that heats put 10 drops of Dawn onto each pad along with 2 scoops of 20 Mule Team Borax and 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide. After water boils let cool for 20 seconds and pour hot water over pads. Put lid on bowl and let soak over night. In the morning scrub off any remaining dirt with Bar Keeper's Friend cleanser ( or use whatever cleanser you like).
Both of my pads look and smell brand new. I just mopped and the floors have never looked better.
Yes I have! I use it when I clean houses! It is so good customers started purchasing them. I love it I should be a tester I like to put things to the rest under all conditons I encounter. I rate it high all of them.
