This summer our family grew.
Our once “party of 5” is now “Party of 6” which means I’m the blessed mama of 4 kiddos.
It also means I’m the homemaker of a house with 4 kiddos. And while my almost 7 year old is starting to help more and more, some dreaded chores I do became even harder.
My absolute most hated chore is mopping!
Who is with me?
With 4 kids my floors are constantly sticky, wet, and just straight up dirty. Mopping is a multistep task the requires my family to have self control of avoiding the most trafficked areas in our home.
And might I add, even if I do successfully get them out of the way to fully mop without added dirty tip-toe foot prints or handling a tragic slip and fall, the cleanliness last about .25 seconds. By the time the floor is actually dry its time to eat again.
Long story short, by the 4th kid I was about to set up our dining room outside or just completely give up.
Then I found a solution!
This is an all in one machine that simultaneously sweeps and mops using new cleaning technology. When the SLYDE moves forward it sweeps up crumbs, hair, dirt, and everything in-between. When pulled backwards, it mops away sticky messes, dirt stains, and even spills.
The SLYDE is bagless and uses a unique dual disposal system. imply slide the SLYDE into the base and with a push of a button it auto-cleans in 25 seconds.
SClean water is pulled from the back tank to rinse the inside of the SLYDE, then the dirty water flows out the front into a separate compartment with a strainer.
Overall I was really impressed with it’s cleaning power and had big features I loved!
First off, my absolute favorite part was its ability to sweep and mop simultaneously. That means I only have to take out ONE cleaning machine and only have ONE step to a shinny floor.
We have a tiny crowded cleaning closet that always brought chaos trying to remove the tool I wanted. Since the SLYDE is so sleek and modern in design, we actually leave it out in the corner of our kitchen.
The SLYDE is small enough to fit between chairs and tight corners so I can quickly clean under the table after meals. Knowing how quick and simple the process is I am definitely more motivated to clean. It also means I spot clean daily, rather than one giant clean day.
Another big draw was how quickly my floors dried after cleaning. The SLYDE is built with dual-action brush roll technology that quickly absorbs liquid. So although I am mopping, my floors are left practically dried. It also means I can use it to clean up those daily spills from meals. For a procrastinating cleaner like myself, its so nice to know I can quickly run the SLYDE before guests arrive.
With it’s lightweight design and bagless technology, the SLYDE runs super quiet at just 65dB. This means I can clean WHILE the kids and babies are sleeping. This was an absolute game changer!
Finally the SLYDE can work with non foaming solutions, which means I can fill the back tank with my natural combination of hot water and vinegar. It can work with most surfaces like hardwood, tile, marble, granite, vinyl, and laminate. Our home is a mixture of vinyl and tiles and it worked great on both.
I will say I was pretty skeptical it could clean dried juice puddles or crusty Mac and Cheese but I was very impressed with how it worked out a lot of different messes.
If I had to give any critiques, I would say my biggest issue was the base. If I get real ambitious and want to clean our whole common area (family room, kitchen, guest bathroom, entrance way, and hallway) I have to dump and refill the tank maybe 3 to 4 times. My house by no means is large, but remember we have 4 kids so there is more mess per square foot. With a not huge battery life, I would say the SLYDE is not practical for a whole house clean. However, like I said earlier, with its practicality it makes spot cleaning much more easy so a full house clean is needed less and less.
Again with the 4 kid warning, we gave the SLYDE a true run for its money. A few times the self cleaning system got jammed because of how much was sucked up. I also discovered if I didn’t make sure the inside was really cleaned out, mold could easily start growing. I quickly fixed this problem by hand washing the inside of the SLYDE after any big cleaning.
The SLYDE has helped simplify and speed up my cleaning routine tremendously. I love I can quickly clean without worrying about wet dangerous floors or waking up kids with a loud vacuum. I’m motivated by its simplicity to grab and go for quick spot cleaning, making my clean house stress significantly less! The SLYDE is a perfect cleaning tool from dorm room, to apartment, to home.
