    Just shell out a couple bucks more and get a steam mop that'll effectively clean your floors. I normally like Bissell but, this was poorly executed. Keep in mind if you have pets or if your floor gets dirty quick, you need to wash and replace the 2 mop covers constantly especially, if you have a big home. Also, as expected with cordless, not as strong as a plug in appliance.

    Right out of the box this did not require any assembly. You just slip the handle into the base unit and you are ready to go. I really like the convenience of a cordless spin mop with the built-in cleaning fluid. I tried it out right away on hardwoods and it worked great there (I could also see using a floor polish with this unit on the hardwoods). It also worked well on the kitchen tile, even getting some difficult food splatters off the floor. Like any cleaner with a cleaning pad, once the pads get a bit dirty, you start to push a bit of film around the floors. I chose to use the spare pads to make a final pass over the floor to account for this. I really like this one...

    Want the Kids to Mop? Problem Solved!

    If I handed my kids a mop & bucket I'd end up with 1) Two complaining kids, 2) A flooded kitchen. Put this thing in their hands and there is excitement to use. Just don't tell them they're mopping. #CleaningToys The SpinWave features 2 good-sized pads that spin to do a good job of cleaning tile and wood floors. This isn't for cleaning up a spill like a mop would be, of course, but more than replaces a standard mop for cleaning jobs. Two sets of pads are included, one a "scrubby" pad for deep dirt, and works GREAT on textured tile floors, and the other a flat pad for more standard cleaning or polishing. Pads can easily be washed in the washer when dirty, not only allowing them to be reused, but also avoiding the nastiness of string or sponge mops. The SpinWave includes a removable water bottle with clearly-marked lines for mixing cleaning fluid and water (2 lines -- 1 for "small jobs" and 1 for "large jobs"). The device is cordless, and quickly recharges with the included AC adapter. When not in use, the SpinWave includes a plastic base to keep your pads from just sitting on the floor. But as mentioned, the kids will love using this to help clean up. Certainly not what Bissell probably wants to use as a primary marketing tactic, but you can't discount being able to use something to get the kids to help.

    Cordless convenience

    About two years ago got the Bissell CrossWave, which is great, but also like the extra convenience of this which is cordless. Although it works a bit differently, both use the same cleaning formulas. This unit came with two sample-size bottles of multi-surface formulas, a set of smooth pads installed and an extra set of'scrubby' pads. It's fairly compact, no assembly required, and lightweight. The pads spin somewhat slowly and so is fairly quiet, a faint whirl, and does not bother others in the house. It takes about four hours to fully charge, and that provides about 30 minutes of runtime, for which I used about the small fill-line in the water/formula container. Ours came with two sample bottles of Multi-Surface formula. Since the floors were relatively dirty, used the multi-surface formula with the'scrubby' pads. It cleaned the hardwood floors well, picking up stuck-on dirt the vacuums couldn't handle. Also used it on shiny ceramic on a bathroom floors. The floors dried up in a few minutes, but it left lots of residue and dull-looking floors. The next day, since the floors were now cleaner but still dull-looking, used the hardwood formula, which we had for the Bissell CrossWave, and this time, it left the hardwood floor back to its normal shine. It's very maneuverable and easy to use when cleaning under the feet of kitchen cabinets and around baseboards, since the pads won't scratch them. The mop has two buttons: And on/off and a spray button. The pads start spinning only after reclining the handle and stop when putting it straight. When pressing the spray button, it also makes a faint chime to remind that it's spraying formula. For storing, it comes with a tray, so storing it with moist pads is not a problem, it also stands on its own, so it's simple to store. The pads can be rinsed with warm water or are machine washable (wash them separately from clothes). Filling up the tank is straightforward: Remove it from the mop by pushing it up. There are no latches nor other pieces that might break. The tank itself is about the size of a sports water bottle. Fill it up with warm/hot tap water to the first mark, add formula to the second mark, close the cap and put it back on the mop, that's it. It has a cap that won't leak until is fully inserted into the mop. To keep in mind, the battery is not replaceable. It would be good to have a formula for hardwoods that would provide more luster. As for the multi-surface formula, consider using less of the formula mixed with the water for less residue on shiny floors, that worked better for me.

    Better than a manual pad-type mop but a bit pricey

    Pros: * Lightweight * Easy to use * Sufficient motor power * Adequate battery life * Refillable fluid bottle and reusable cleaning pads Cons: * Could use more pressure on the pads for deeper cleaning * Easy to "walk away" while spinning so have to control its motion * Poor value versus similar non-motorized mops We've terrazzo and tile flooring throughout our home. Vacuuming is necessary for regular maintenance but wet mopping must also be done to get the typical traffic areas and muddy foot and paw prints. We've tried everything from manual (Swiffer-type) to motorized (Floor-mate) options and even semi-commercial spinning hard floor cleaners. They all have their pros and cons, so we're constantly on the look-out for better options. The Bissell SpinWave Cordless mop is a reasonably good option for fill-in cleaning but isn't quite optimal for more intense cleaning. The unit's relatively light which is a double-edged sword for cleaning floors; it's easy to carry from room to room, but the lack of heft means that it doesn't really muscle in to scrub the floors. It does a better job than the manual mops due to the spinning pads so it's great for day-to day cleaning, but not so great for really deep cleaning. There are two buttons on the handle that are easy to see and use; one for turning the unit on and off and the other for manually spraying the solution from the refillable bottle. The battery status LEDs are easy to see and understand, too. The AC adapter is a typical wall-wart type that plugs into a hole on the handle. A docking base would be really nice, since it has a docking tray (to keep the wet pads from sitting on the floor) but you still have to plug the charging cable in separately. Overall, the unit cleans well enough and is easier to use than a manual spray-type mop for every-day cleaning. The value for the price paid isn't the best, and would be better at a lower cost (price reduction or when on sale). The included reusable pads and refillable bottle make the price paid a bit easier to accept since you don't have to continuously buy new bottles of fluid or replace disposable pads.

    Quick and easy mopping

    This is a pretty good product. It reminds me of a floor waxer with two spinning pads. I like that I can squirt a little or a lot of cleaner making it so the floor drys quick if it's not really dirty. It's easy to maneuver and not too heavy. It comes with a tray to store it in so the wet pads aren't sitting on the floor. This seems best if you have a large area. I had issues with small areas because the pads are so big. Like using it in a bathroom is hard to get around the toilet and such. Also there's no way to get into corners. I wish the battery lasted longer as well. You get 20 min out of a 4 hour charge. I did 4 small areas that didn't use up all the "small area" cleaner amount and I was down to less than 33% of battery. I'm not sure how you make the battery last for a big area. The scrubbing pads make quick work of spots on the floor that a mop would require some pressure to get off.

    Powered wet mopping

    Seeing my wife use a mop for years on our floors I thought the BISSELL - SpinWave Cordless Powered Mop would make the job so much easier for her. So once I had this unit assembled (you literally snap the handle to the main body, put on the cleaning pads and you are ready to go). You should plug the wireless unit in to charge which takes a few hours as the initial from the factory charge can vary. There are a series of three blue lights that provide a status of the battery charge. Two small containers of multi use cleaner are provided with the unit, mix with water and place in the reservoir on the front of the unit. Once charged you are ready to clean. You can dispense solution on the floor from the unit and it provides a small chime to indicate it was dispensed. My wife used the unit and came to the conclusion that very little solution was needed to clean the floor. Now some of her observations were that if you like the pad cleaner (starts with S ends in R) you will be a fan of this BISSELL SpinWave Cordless Powered Mop. However as I found out, she likes to rinse the mop during use to actually clean the floor and remove dirt. She said that wet pad cleaning solutions are kinda just like spreading around the grime (did not know this prior to getting this unit - my bad). I mentioned to her, this is more of a commentary on her way of cleaning, this unit does what it was designed to do and does it well. She also mentioned that with the tank full of solution it really adds to the weight of this cordless unit. She also said unlike a mop it was difficult to get into tight places (like around a toilet) when using a traditional mop. My observations were the linoleum floor looked clean and shiny after using this unit and our hardwood floors looked fantastic (however be careful to sweep or vacuum up any dirt prior, as the circular motion of the pads could scratch hardwoods if dirt or small rocks get caught up in the pads). However she mentioned that the linoleum floor was a little sticky from the solution (I also thought so), I suspect it would be less so when using less of it. The pads are washable and can be put in a washing machine. A rubber tray is provided so you can place the unit (standing up) on the tray with wet pads. Overall I thought this was a nice addition to our fleet of cleaning devices. Not sure how much she is going to use it though. However I plan on repurposing it to clean my elderly mom's laminate floors. I suspect it will do a wonderful job. Pros: - Wireless, built in 18v rechargeable battery. - cleaning solution provided (use a little at a time) - awesome if you already like wet mopping pad cleaning solutions. Cons: - heavier than expected with solution in the tank (don't fill to the top) - old fashioned rinse and repeat mop fans might not care for it. - solution leaves a sticky residue (at least on linoleum floors). - hard to use in tight place (like near toilets) however it is very maneuverable.
