H2O Mop X5
Advantages: Ok steriliser
Disadvantages: Almost everything about this product, especially the price is a disadvantage to anyone that buys it.
This was a disappointing purchase.
I bought this steam cleaner after seeing the advert on tv several thousand times and eventually began to believe the hype. On the advert you can see the steamer in action, blasting the grime away "with the power of steam" ha ha. That's so misleading it's not even funny. It failed to remove the mould from my bath sealant, failed to remove the light grime on the tiling, didn't clean the shower screen to a streak-less finish as per the advert. In fact I firmly believe that I would have been just as well off holding a bucket of steaming water or freshly boiled kettle up to it as that seems to be essentially what it is, nothing more than a kettle with a hose pipe attached to it! As for the "quality" attachments, I don't think they were as impressive as I was led to believe either. After one use on the bath the nylon bristles of the brush attachment began to detach and were left scattered here and there. One of the soft attachments ( The micro fibre cloth ) wouldn't stay on the head properly when trying to clean the floor and didn't compare to a regular mop when removing grime.
After failing miserably in the bathroom I turned my attention to the stainless steel kitchen bin and again was disappointed by its inability to remove even a tea bag stain. It wasn't worth considering tackling the oven or even hob with it. I think the advertisement makes the steam cleaner out to be some kind of miniature domestic jet wash but the truth is it's not good for much but sterilising things that are already clean like some kids toys or a pet enclosure for reptiles etc and I really don't think it's worth the £99.99 plus delivery I paid. In a last effort to get some satisfaction from this cheaply made ineffective waste of time and money I attempted to clean some dust from a wrought iron shelving unit I had and was, again, disappointed with the results as I just ended up getting a cloth to finish the job. Also, it is not as easy to use as you would think as you have to ensure the main part of the product is in a certain position to regulate the water level so that the water is always covering the element that heats it. This makes it very difficult when attempting to clean things in high places such as the tiles near the roof that I had to do whilst balancing on the side of the bath like some kind of high wire act! I quickly grew tired of refilling the inadequate water tank. At best this product is worth no more than £30 - £40 in my opinion.
The 7 day returns policy did not seem very encouraging either, as I didn't even use mine until 6 weeks after I bought it.
It now lays dormant in its box in my shed. I hope to one day find a use for it.
RIP H2O Mop X5.
Summary: Waste of money.
