The gift was labeled from my husbands ALWAYS shedding dog. Last night I cleaned my wood bedroom floor and tile bathroom while out having dinner with the family. Sweet. Today I cleaned another four other rooms while puttering around the house doing other things I enjoyed. Our house is 90% wood floors. Usually use a swiffer to pick up stuff, but my bare feet loved how clean the floor was of all dust and debris. Always have that dang fur under our bed. That sweet little machine just picks it all up. Tile and kitchen floors too. Now I can run it when ever or how often I want and not have to "waste" so much of my precious time cleaning the floors. The machine does have to be cleaned after every single use (about 4 average sized rooms), which is a few minutes of pain, but the overall benefit of having more time is well worth it to me. Do read the directions and follow the detailed cleaning process for a better functioning machine. If you don't want the hassle of cleaning different parts of the machine each time you use it then it's not for you. If you don't mind then I hope you love it as much as I do!
