    The BISSELL SpinWave Cordless Mop is designed to fit somewhere between a Swiffer WetJet (spray and mop) and something more aggressive like the Hoover FloorMate (with scrubbing brushes that operates more like a carpet cleaner) - but its performance fails to rise to the capabilities of the cleaners that bracket it. The SpinWave uses two circular cleaning pads that spin as they scrub-up cleaning fluid that is pumped directly onto the floor from a reservoir - so in terms of functionality, it is really more like a Swiffer WetJet with spinning pads. But the motorized cleaning “action” doesn’t buy you any real additional bang for your buck. The pads attach by way of velcro and any deviation from mounting them perfectly will cause the mop to move a little erratically - so the twin circular pad idea doesn’t impress me at all. And even though the motorized pads create a cleaning action against the floor, the weight of the mop itself isn’t really sufficient to promote thorough cleaning - I felt like I needed to press down on the mop to get things really clean and the motor driving the cleaning pads wasn’t strong enough to let me do that. To be clear here, for a motorized mop, my expectation was that the added mechanics should demonstrate a clear advantage while reducing effort - I found that neither of these expectations was met. The mop did charge quickly and the charge held well while I used the mop around the house - but, again, the motor was annoyingly weak so you would need a longer battery life to support endlessly mopping over the same areas repeatedly. BISSELL includes two sets of washable pads - one for heavy-duty cleaning and one for light-duty cleaning. I wasn’t able to identify any difference in their ability to clean floors. The cleaning liquid is doing a lot of the work for this mop by providing a solvent for the wheels to buff over (like using a wet sponge is always better than using a dry paper towel on a floor stain). Overall, the SpinWave is nifty but weak. A better motor and a much better pad design could have made a more usable mop - but as designed, the BISSELL can’t even improve on basic non-powered mops.

    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.

    worked great, but battery doesn't last long and you can't replace it. So what do you have to do, throw the machine away?
