1.0 out of 5 stars not as good as it first seems, 21 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Shark Steam Pocket Mop - Lilac
I originally bought one in July2010 and initially was impressed with it. Living on my own I dont create that much mess and usually wipe up any trivial spills. so I used this maybe once a month for a good deep clean. After 16 months (less than 20 uses) it stopped steaming, blew up and started spraying steam out of the sides causing a burn on my hand. On searching the internet it seems that I,m not the only person who has had this problem of the steamer stopping working after not many uses.The mop feels cheaply made and put together and certainly not sturdy enough for the price. I would definitely not purchase one of these again as There seems to be an inherent design flaw in the plastic steaming nozzle which leads to it melting and blocking the outlet up, because the plastic cannot cope with the temperatures.

I was going to buy one but on reading this I will not bother as I have brought other brands of mops and the same thing happened with them so I will save my money as being a pensioner money is tight at the moment thanks for the review

Ive had the same problems with the Thame H20 steam mop, went through 2 . they start off great then run out of steam or something stops working,am now reluctant to spend too much as feel they are all the same! but am living on hope as when they work they are a great time saver and fab at cleaning. The hunt goes on...
