If you had said to me a year ago I would be writing about a mop I would have rolled my eyes at you and said “you are mad, I will never talk about a mop on my blog.”
But you know what? I am going to talk about Moppy, my new ever so clever steam mop. Because contrary to popular belief bloggers do have to clean their homes! Ok some have cleaners, like in all walks of life. But there are no Snow White like birds and deer’s appearing over the fields every morning to set off in the sunshine vacuuming, dusting and cleaning our little house until its spick and span. Oh can you imagine the joy of that? In fact lets just spend a minute or two enjoying that thought!
No, the fact is we clean our own home. And Toby is no Disneyesque cleaning animal, quite the opposite he is bone idle and groans through his fringe when you dare to disturb him with jobs such as cleaning. Which is ironic as it’s that hairy beast that creates the floating hairballs and mud that graces our wooden floors!
There have been many cleaners, but I am TOO FUSSY. No one cleans your own home like you do they, or have I just not found the right cleaner? I found myself setting traps for said cleaners back in the day (all 4 of them) as I knew they were not cleaning properly. Swilling a load of water over your floors is not cleaning them, and to vac a floor properly you have to move things!
So we are cleaner-less, mainly due to my sheer fussiness.
And I am not ashamed to say I clean, and that I am super fussy. Just because I don’t share that on my insta feed does not mean I am not a clean freak. I am just more of a fan of the finished result of the sparkly clean home. Not the chaos that living with teens and a dog often presents.
The main issue in our home is keeping the floors clean. We have solid wood floors, which are porous and absorb dirt. Not that practical with teens and dog! But they do look beautiful when clean. But it takes so long, meaning before Moppy came along I would have to dedicate a morning cleaning blooming floors and miss out on that extra chance to go to the gym.
A little more about the Moppy Steam Mop
It takes seconds to set up Moppy, you simply fill it with water plug it in and its ready making it quick and easy to use. It is also lightweight enabling you to move it around the house easily.
Moppy is a fantastic hard floor steam cleaner, which has removable velcro cleaning pads that allow you to take them off and wash them during cleaning. And then put in the washing machine wash afterwards.
You can also steam clean walls and tiles in minutes. Cleaning the bathroom wall tiles is a job I have always avoided, however it takes minutes with Moppy. This is one of my favourites uses as it is an amazing wall steam cleaner. Most of our walls are white and it cleaned mucky hand marks off in no time.
It is also wonderful on wooden blinds; this took minutes rather than the 20 minutes cleaning every single slat separately.
Steam cleaning also means green cleaning as you do not need to use detergent, there may be the cost of the unit outlay initially however you recoup this with the savings on cleaning products and time saved. And with less plastic package wastage from cleaning products Moppy really helps me do my bit to reduce plastic waste.
You can dry dust wooden floors with Moppy using static cloths. As the head is thin and adjustable so it gets under furniture and into corners and difficult to clean places.
The mop sits on a portable unit which is lightweight meaning you can move it around the house easily as you work.
It is cordless, you recharge the mop with steam on the portable hub and then is cord free stream cleaning.
You do not need a bucket. The base the Moppy sits on produces fresh steam every time you place it on the base unit.
Moppy is fantastic for dusting, simply shorten the handle and attach a dusting cloth to get to difficult to reach places.
Is the Polti Moppy worth the Money?
With a price tag of £139 it is not cheap. However it is not just a mop it’s also an easy to use steam cleaner, which is able to quickly clean and sanitize without using detergents. And just for time it saves me alone I would say it is worth the money. Moppy is quick, portable and effective thus making cleaning floors and walls quicker and easier. And that has to make it worth every penny?
So yes, until the day those Disney birds and deer appear to miraculously to clean my home (because who in their right mind would turn them down?) I am sticking with Moppy. The time it takes me to wash my floors and walls now, I don’t need a cleaner. Even better, I still have the time to do the things I love.
