Polti asked me recently to test and review their cordless steam cleaner The Moppy. Moppy really is like no other steam mop I’ve ever come across before. It’s very different from the ones I currently use and its also cordless. I must admit I was confused at first when I opened the box with how actually Moppy worked but after a little play around I could really see the simplicity behind this idea.
The images on the box very much gave you all the information you need as to how Moppy can be used for. It’s not just for floors but for wall tiles, shower screens and large mirrors. The instruction booklet was easy to follow and the Moppy was put together in no time at all.
The main difference between the Moppy and a traditional steam cleaner is that it does not contain a water tank on the mop itself, but instead sits on a charging base containing the tank which heats up the microfiber cloth with steam in just 30 seconds. The heating tray is connected to your electrical point. You then very simply add in the water and place the moppy head on top and wait until the green light comes on, you can actively see the steam oozing onto the moppy head. The water never leaves the heating tray the mop head simply sits on the tray above the heat .This heats up the microfiber pad and is then ready for you to start cleaning your floor and surfaces without the need for any product. Its great not being tied to a lead as you can literally clean all over so quickly. With the Moppy you are actually cleaning with a very hot cloth rather than dribbling water everywhere which is traditionally how a mop and bucket would behave. The cloth does get very hot so do keep tiny fingers out-of-the-way. After use your floor will be dry within seconds so there is no sitting on the bottom stair waiting for your floors to dry.
Because there’s no technical parts on the Moppy head itself, it’s super thin and rotates 360 degrees. Which means it can easily get underneath furniture and get right into the corners of the room.
The pole is extendable too so you can set the height to suit you and even get the children involved with the cleaning as it’s perfectly safe to use.
Moppy whisks around the floors with a swish and a glide, removing 99.9% of germs and bacteria from all surfaces (E.Coli, E. faecalis, P. aeruginosa and Salmonella) the microfiber cloths provided are super thick and will cling onto the dirt rather than push it around like some traditional mops can do. The Moppy is perfect for daily cleaning as its super lightweight, cordless and very agile.
You can also add in the E-Cloth deep clean and dusting mop head pack. The special Deep Clean Mop Head’s long fibres, break up and hold grease and dirt, which ordinary cloths leave behind. The Mop Head attaches with Velcro to Moppy’s plate and is easily detached. Brilliant on all hard floors including laminate, stone, tiles and wood. E-Cloths perform better, last longer and save money: they can be washed 300 times at 60°. Plus they have a 3 year guarantee.
But here’s where it gets interesting as the Moppy is NOT just for floors.
Shower Screens – Moppy is great at removing water marks and stuck on soap scum for showers screens. It take no elbow grease at all just a very simple swish and glide over the screen door.
Tiles – Great on both kitchen and bathroom tiles, removing grease, water marks, soap scum and cooked on foods.
Mirror – absolutely perfect for you large mirrors, as you can stretch right to the top so you don’t miss anything and leave a completely streak free finish with just the power of hot steam.
Conservatories – I have found it to be perfect for cleaning my inside conservatory windows and it took minutes to clean with no scrubbing and buffing up smear marks. As it’s so light weight and agile it got right up to the top and into those awkward corners so well. effortless cleaning!
