Got a Bissell spin wave mop at goodwill back in the summer. Got a bottle for it and some pads. Downloaded the instructions. Itís the corded model. I LOATHE mopping floors. I LOVE this machine. I now like to mop the floors!

We recently bought a small office building for a company we started. It has lots of tile. Iím considering another one of these for that location or the cross wave which also vacuums but the reviews for the cross wave are dicey. In fact when comparing spin wave versus cross wave reviews there are people who returned the cross wave and replaced it with the spin wave and have said it is far better than the cross wave. Thought the spin wave does not vacuum. But itís better at mopping the floors.

Basically the spin wave is a cross between one of the old Hoover or Regina floor scrubbers and a microfiber pad spray mop. It has 2 round microfiber pads that rotate to scrub the floor and absorb the solution which you dispense electrically from the pole mounted solution bottle.

I like it and recommend it. I cannot mop with a string mop die to back issues and too many floors to do them on my hands and knees and a sponge mop is ok but tiring. A spray mop or swiffer is tiring too especially when having to going over stubborn stuck on dirt multiple times to scrub it off. Iíve had a steam mop too and theyíre ok but can be hard to push and similar in effort to the spray mop. I felt the steamer doesnít really sanitize the floors and the pad gets cold from the floor immediately. So I feel like itís just putting a coating of warm water on the floor. The spin wave I just glide it over the floors like an upright vacuum and it scrubs the dirt off. And for anything stuck on or that needs extra cleaning I just set it on that area for a few seconds and basically do nothing while the machine scrubs the area repeatedly. It is very quiet and thatís pleasant. I do change or rinse the pads after each room so Iím not mopping with too dirty of pads. It doesnít leave as much of a residue as I had with the spray mop or the steam mops, but it can leave some.

Long ago back in the 80s I used to clean my older friends kno wax kitchen floor which was textured and had dimples that would collect black dirt. She used to use a scrub brush and a sponge mop. The floor got really dirty in the recesses from the sponge mop dragging the dirt into the recesses. I found an old Hoover scrubber in the basement and decided to try that on her floor after she suggested I use a scrub brush on my hands and knees. The scrubber did the job beautifully as I effortlessly glided it over the floor. She had forgotten all about the scrubber and when she came hime and saw the beautifully clean floor she was amazed and said it looked great and I told her I used the scrubber and she said she had never tried that in that floor, they had only used it on the asphalt tile in the downstairs they would wax.

Anyway, I rarely see these old scrubbers around anymore, maybe once in a while at an estate sale. My Mom had one but no longer has floors that would need it so we gave it away to Salvation Army. Hers was a Regina with all sort of brushes and a tank and it was a carpet scrubber too.

Seems like Bissell has ďre-engineered Ē it with the spin wave. Itís a definite keeper for me.
