Just received our SpinMaid this week and after using this product once, we knew we would be shipping it back. Besides being extremely cheaply made it doesn't do anything nearly as good as they try to tell you it does. Like many others, we too have purchased several other types of floor cleaning products, such as the battery operated stick mops with the disposable pads, as well as the more expensive ones with the reusable pads, and this product is by far the worst. Please, do yourselves a favor and do not waste your time and money purchasing this product. I can assure you that any good reviews of this product are written by people that work for the SpinMaid company or have some other sort of financial gain by writing good reviews.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
