I finally broke down and bought this mop after dealing with another popular brand mop with disposable pads; it rhymes with "differ"...I hated the smell of the cleaner and felt like I was wiping chemicals all over my floors. Also, with this brand I felt like the dirt was just being pushed around and never actually picked up by the pads.
I read the reviews for the gaiam spray mop and decided to buy it...and glad I did! It sprays easily and the reusable microfiber cloths gives enough "resistance" to actually scrub the dirt and get it off the floors. I used a vinegar-water mix and it worked great on my laminate "wood" floors. My only complaint is that I wish the handle/pole was a little longer; I felt I was hunched over. Definitely worth the money!!
