I bought better steam cleaner, and I used it once and it made my floor tiles loosen. then I remembered my daughter always saying her tiles came loose in her rented houses. so it's in the closet. I use my swifffer for sweeping, and a sponge mop for mopping. they seem to be the lightest for an old lady.

Don't purchase a new mop. Use your swiffer mop. I cut a microfiber cloth in half, serge the edges and use a half like you would a swiffer pad. When dirty just use the other half. We have three big dogs and three cats in our house and I like being able to wash them out and reuse them quicker. Purchased mine at the dollar store. Save on laundry, lowers the cost of cleaning up after the animals and saves the landfill. WIN! Win!! Win!!! all around. Make my own cleaner as well using a formula I found on the internet. My husband has been able to get the lid off the bottle and we just refill it. If you can't get the lid off just put the cleaner in a spray bottle and spray in front of the mop. Works just as well as the purchased cleaner and much cheaper.
