Christmas in July Week of Giveaways! Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner for Hard Floors

Welcome to Day 2 of our Christmas in July Week of Giveaways! If you missed yesterday’s giveaway, you can still check it out and enter HERE.

Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner Giveaway and Review (Before and After Photos)

I am really impressed by the Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner. When we moved to our new house, I had no idea how to take care of hardwood floors. I also had no idea how much easier it was to see every single spec of dirt, dust, and hair on hardwood floors than carpet, lol! I felt like I was spending twice as much time cleaning my floors than before. Heck, if I’m being honest, more like twenty times more. I am not the kind of person that just loves to spend hours slaving over vacuuming and mopping my floors, so I was really intrigued by the automatic iRobot Mint Floor Cleaner.

The Mint floor cleaner uses GPS to sweep and mop hard floor surfaces. You can use a standard dry Swiffer Sweeper Cloth (or the included reusable dry cloths, I prefer the Swiffer so I can just throw it away after) to pick up dirt, dust, and debris. Then use the included microfiber cloth in mop mode to polish and cleanse the floors to high shine.  It’s compact size allows the Mint to clean under sofas and tables and gets into tight areas where standard vacuums and mops can’t reach. The Mint uses indoor GPS to help it keep track of where it has been and where it needs to go so every inch of your floor gets cleaned efficiently.

  • Sweep Mode: Moves in straight lines back and forth to efficiently and thoroughly pick up dust, dirt and hair.
  • Mop Mode: Uses a special mopping action (yes, it actually mops back and forth, lol!) and a wet microfiber cleaning cloth to pull deeper dirt and grime off your floors. A special Reservoir Cleaning Pad dispenses liquid (water or mild cleaning solution) throughout the cycle to keep the cloth damp.
  • Whisper-Quiet: The Mint is not loud like a vacuum cleaner. It cleans quietly so you can run it while watching TV, talking on the phone, having dinner, or even sleeping.

So many of you recommended protecting my hardwood floors by mopping with simply water, which is one reason why I love the Mint. I have affectionately named her Rosie, after the Jetsons’ maid. That is exactly who the Mint reminds me of, lol!

Here’s a little before and after of my floors. We did some work around the house this weekend so the floors got extra dusty from the work, compounded by leaving the door open and constantly going in and out of the house all day, tracking in extra dirt along the way.

Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner Giveaway and Review (Before and After Photos)

BEFORE: Floors after a standard vacuuming. It actually looked a lot worse before this, but as you can see, the vacuum didn’t pick up all of the fine dirt and dust.

AFTER: Floors after running the Mint in Mop Mode. When vacuuming didn’t work, I decided to sit back and let the Mint do the work for me.

It is such a huge relief and time saver to be able to push a button and have my floors automatically cleaned for me! I can’t even calculate how much time and energy the Mint has saved me.

Here’s a short video about how the Mint cleaner works.


And here’s a handy “pinnable” image to save for later.


Never mopping my floors again! The Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner dry sweeps AND wet mops. It uses GPS to keep track of where it has been and where it needs to go, so every inch of the floor gets cleaned efficiently.

You can find the iRobot Mint Cleaner 5200 on Amazon.com for $295. Check out all the positive reviews!

I have hardwood floors too and I feel like I have to clean them daily! It drives me crazy

Priscilla July 23, 2013 at 8:49 pm

I have to admit that I put a lot more time and energy keeping my hardwood floors clean. I hate mopping them. ps: I have a pug that sheds.

Jerri Crabtree July 23, 2013 at 1:54 am

The chore I avoid the most just so happens to be the hardwood floors. I have Rheumatoid Disease, and my joints ate swollen, painful, and deforming. I can no longer stand and clean or get down on hands and knees to clean like I used to. I would really cherish ths, and it truly would be a gift. Thanks for sharing.

Pynner July 23, 2013 at 1:54 am

Thanks a lot, Amanda!

Catriona July 23, 2013 at 4:21 am

Leslie July 23, 2013 at 4:30 am

Yes, please! my most hated chore is cleaning toilets. Have a robot for that?

I avoid cleaning all the jealousies in my house the most.

Robin in NC July 23, 2013 at 5:18 am

Dang, I’ll be brutally honest…I wish I was rich enough to hire a house keeper!! ;) Back to reality, cleaning windows & cleaning out closets head my ‘I’ll get around to it soon’ list. Yuck!!

Jessica July 23, 2013 at 5:19 am

Washing the floors and now I have a crawling baby.

Debbie Hall July 23, 2013 at 5:25 am

robin wilcynski July 23, 2013 at 5:31 am

vacuuming… the vacuum is to hard to push(bad back) My husband does the vacuuming.

Lynda M. July 23, 2013 at 5:39 am

Gina July 23, 2013 at 5:45 am

Cleaning my kitchen floors. I always wait until last to do it.

Jenny K July 23, 2013 at 5:45 am

I hate doing pretty much all of it, but cleaning the bathrooms and washing dishes are my top two. The floors need to be swept numerous times a day with 2 boys, and Homer their guinea pig…lol.

Judy July 23, 2013 at 5:54 am

We have hardwood floors, & hands down, it’s the one household chore I avoid (the mopping of them). What a great giveaway!

kelly July 23, 2013 at 5:54 am

I love having my hardwood floors but I loathe cleaning them.

Meghan July 23, 2013 at 5:57 am

I avoid doing the dishes! Especially after a day of freezer cooking!

Ginger July 23, 2013 at 5:58 am

Ironing and mopping!

MarieMc July 23, 2013 at 6:00 am

Housework …… I am allergic.

Lauren July 23, 2013 at 6:01 am

Pretty much all house chores, but I absolutely despise putting wash away. Ugh!

Lori July 23, 2013 at 6:01 am

Are there chores that people like? I’m not a fan of any of them, really. Probably because I do way too many of them! But if I had to pick just one, I’d say dishes! But floors are not fun, either!

abby July 23, 2013 at 6:04 am

bathroom chores for sure

Dawn B. July 23, 2013 at 6:08 am

I hate dusting!

Stephanie C July 23, 2013 at 6:10 am

Mopping and bathrooms are equal on the “I dread the chore” activity list.

Betti July 23, 2013 at 6:10 am

Cleaning floors actually….so much floor, so little time to stay clean! This could be the thing to change my whole attitude!

I hate cleaning the bathroom! Although now that we’ve bought our house and have a yard, yardwork might be my second least favorite!!

Toni Millard July 23, 2013 at 6:30 am

I hate the floors – I vacuum, turn around & my 2 kids are right behind me, messing it up again. Argh!!!

Jenny V. July 23, 2013 at 6:32 am

Honestly, cleaning my wood floors is the chore I dislike the most! Getting down on my hands and knees scrubbing all those miles and miles (not really but it feels like it) of floor is not my idea of fun!

Linda July 23, 2013 at 6:34 am

I really hate cleaning my glass tabletops. I have three of them in my great room and the minute I finish cleaning them they are dusty again!! As far as vacuuming goes, I have a Dyson and it is just too heavy!!!

Stephanie Sullivan July 23, 2013 at 6:36 am

For me, it is either washing silverware or the floors. Polar opposites I know, but its the details and corners that drive me crazy!

Kathryn July 23, 2013 at 6:39 am

I honestly despise cleaning the bathrooms. Was never a problem before I had my son, but now…I actually pay to have that !!! (So silly, I know)

Sara H July 23, 2013 at 6:39 am

Paulette July 23, 2013 at 6:45 am

Cee Cole July 23, 2013 at 6:46 am

Dusting and vacuuming.

I detest emptying the dishwasher. Not a problem loading it just do not like emptying it.

Melissa B July 23, 2013 at 6:55 am

Cleaning the bathroom is a chore I tend to ignore, ick. Unfortunately it cannot be ignored…

Jill Herington July 23, 2013 at 6:58 am

Jenn Petersen July 23, 2013 at 6:58 am

Shantel P. July 23, 2013 at 7:00 am

Robin P. July 23, 2013 at 7:03 am

Vacuuming or cleaning the shower.

Jen July 23, 2013 at 7:05 am

I despise cleaning the shower glass doors!

Beth July 23, 2013 at 7:08 am

Jag July 23, 2013 at 7:13 am

Vacuuming carpet and floors….seems like a never ending job.

Lisa July 23, 2013 at 7:14 am

I absolutely hate cleaning the bathroom. I have two boys, at least one of whom cannot aim. It’s disgusting and I feel like no matter how much I clean, it’s always dirty.

Kendra Krasin July 23, 2013 at 7:15 am

I’m good with the “cleaning up” part of cleaning, but I avoid all the real cleaning – vacuuming, dusting, etc.

Becky | Becky Bakes July 23, 2013 at 7:16 am

Silly but….unloading the dishwasher, day after day after day…….

Amber July 23, 2013 at 7:17 am

I hate cleaning the bathtub!

Anna July 23, 2013 at 7:17 am

I hate cleaning bathrooms. But my 13 year old son is in charge of cleaning floors weekly, so he would LOVE this!

heather July 23, 2013 at 7:17 am

I do not like cleaning the mini blinds!

Michelle Proudfoot July 23, 2013 at 7:18 am

No joke, I hate cleaning the floors the most. You spend all the time and energy cleaning them and it seems you can never get it all, and it’s almost immediately dirty again!

Cretia July 23, 2013 at 7:18 am

I don’t like cleaning the bathrooms…but it has to be done!

Susan S. July 23, 2013 at 7:20 am

Dusting – such a waste!

beth henry July 23, 2013 at 7:22 am

Putting away the laundry!

I really dislike to vacuum! It seems like it takes forever!

Thais July 23, 2013 at 7:26 am

I would LOVE to have a “Rosie” to clean up after my 15 pound, medium haired, constantly shedding, black and white cat!!!

Jennifer Angel July 23, 2013 at 7:28 am

Mopping….most of the house is carpeted which means there isn’t a ton to mop!

JNE July 23, 2013 at 7:29 am

That is beyond awesome! I just re-mopped my floors this morning after doing it yesterday afternoon, due to a dog accident (our Boston, Hamlet, is now 11 years old!) AND a kitty present waiting for me this morning. Ugh! If my floors stayed clean for 24 hours, maybe I wouldn’t mind, but between 2 cats, a dog, and two kids (not to mention me (total klutz!) and my husband (not the tidiest guy)), they are never clean for more than a few hours… since they are the biggest surface in my house, they constitute my biggest cleaning headache (although, I really do not love cleaning in general and really wish there was a cleaning fairy that would visit overnight!)

Nancy July 23, 2013 at 7:29 am

I really hate vacuuming, too. Always miss something and it has to be done so often…dusting is a close second!

gayle July 23, 2013 at 7:33 am

I hate ironing!

Rachel G. July 23, 2013 at 7:34 am

I HATE the folding part of laundry. The rest, not so bad, but I despise that.

CC July 23, 2013 at 7:35 am

Ironing! Can’t stand it!

Jan July 23, 2013 at 7:36 am

I hate dusting. When I was a teenager my mother made me take all items off the furniture, dust it, then polish it and put items back. I hated doing that and still do

Larissa July 23, 2013 at 7:36 am

I avoid cleaning the bathtub most…ugh. Although, I dislike most household chores. This Mint looks really cool! My dining room and kitchen have laminate flooring and I bet it would be sooooo much easier to clean them with a Mint!
Thanks, Amanda!

Jenn July 23, 2013 at 7:37 am

I love to avoid loading and unloading the dishwasher. Fortunately, my husband doesn’t mind doing the dishes :)
