I’m super excited to tell you about a new steam mop and to be able to give one away! I was looking for a new steam mop – I had the Shark mop, it worked okay, but it was losing its “steam”. So when I was contacted to review and give away the Black + Decker Steam Mop – I was really excited!

Here are my favorite features of the Black + Decker Steam mop:
Kills 99.9% of germs using just water – No chemicals required. Great for homes with kids or pets.

With SmartSelect™ Technology – simply turn the dial to the specific floor type – Hardwood, Laminate, Tile, Vinyl or Stone and Marble. The mop automatically releases the right amount of steam.
Automatic Shut-Off Feature – Mop automatically shuts off the steam when parked upright for those quick pauses during cleaning.
Ready-To-Go Tank Illumination – changes from red to blue when the water reaches the correct temperature.
23 Foot Cord – no more unplugging and plugging in and unplugging as I mop
Swivel Steering – easily maneuver around furniture and into corners.
Easy-glide Microfiber Pads – effortlessly glides across floor locking in dirt and grime. Machine washable and reusable.
Hands-free Pad Removal – for easy release by simply stepping on the pad.
High Capacity Tank – holds enough water for over twenty-five minutes of uninterrupted cleaning.

So how does it work?  AMAZINGLY! I absolutely love it – the design is well-thought out and I love that you can adjust the steam levels to your specific floor type. Here are a couple pictures of the Black + Decker Steam Mop in action.
I especially like that it comes with this resting mat that you can set it on while you move furniture or grab the phone or whatever. Notice that it also can stand on its own – my other steam mop had to be leaned against a wall and fell down more than a time or two.
Here’s the microfiber pad (it came with 3!) – these blue stripes help to scrub up tougher spots on the floors.
I have used the Black & Decker Steam Mop on my hardwood floors, tile floors, and linoleum – it worked perfectly on each floor type.
