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.

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 for $295. Check out all the positive reviews!

    I completely avoid putting away the laundry. It’s exhausting – I spend more energy on avoiding it!!

  2. Jessi @ Practically Functional

    The chore I avoid most is probably cleaning the bathroom! We have two cats who shed a lot, and because the bathroom usually gets steamy, the cat hair sticks to everything!!!

  3. Liz C.

    Dusting – i let it pile up until I can’t stand it anymore (luckily we don’t have bad allergies!)

  4. Cortney VW

    LOL……I totally try to avoid them all as long as possible! I have my don clean the toilets which is awesome! I guess the one that I dont do is dust!

    Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m
    not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, awesome blog!

  6. Jillian Tyre

    I don’t avoid anything, I just don’t have enough time for it all. My bathroom gets skipped for too long of time periods. I wipe it, but doing the entire thing is what I dread.

  7. working capital

    Asking questions are truly good thing if you are
    not understanding something totally, except this paragraph offers
    fastidious understanding yet.

    Your personal statement is there to help the Uni get to
    know you and help them decide if you will fit in
    with their establishment. Here’s some suggested sections for your statement:. . 1) relate your work experience to the course you are applying for. Say why you want to go on that course and what you hope to achieve from it.. 2) Its not just about work, they see how social you are too so any clubs/activities outside of work should be included.. 3) Hobbies and interests. 4) Might be worth throwing in some current issues which related to your course/your hobbies etc just to re-emphasise your intelligence.. 5) Lastly say why you want to go to University. WHat do you hope to take away from the whole experience. Its obvious you want a degree so you can get a good job, but how about personal growth and development. Do you want Uni to improve your social skills? Meet people from all walks of life? Want to be thrown into a new environment?. . In essence, the personal statement is used by the Uni to get to know you aside from school life and grades.. . Hope that helps. I spent a while getting my statement write so i know how difficult this is. Good luck with everything!

  9. Michelle B

    oh man, I really don’t like chores ;) I guess I’m really the WORST at putting the handwashed clean dishes away. uggg. I don’t like unloading the dishwasher ;)


    It’s going to be end of mine day, except before end I am reading this wonderful piece of writing to improve my experience.

  11. aimee

    I really don’t like doing any cleaning, but I avoid putting laundry away the most! I don’t know why, I just hate it!

  12. Tracy

    Since I’m pregnant right now, I’ve been avoiding all household chores like the plague, but usually it’s the dishes or the bathroom. :)

  13. Lisa

    Try to avoid as many household chores as possible but vacuuming is possibly the WORST EVER and would avoid AT ALL COST.

  14. Janet

    For some reason, I put off making the bed. I shouldn’t, since it only takes a couple of minutes!

  15. Susan

    My least favorite household chore is dusting/cleaning our window blinds. Our entire house (less the basement) has hardwood so this tool would be awesome!

  16. Anna

    I absolutely hate scrubbing the shower/tub!! I will dust, scrub, sweep, wash, and vacuum all over the house, but Ialways leave the shower scrubbing for last. :)

  17. Tina

    I would not mind doing household chores but just do not have the time (though will admit dusting and sweeping are the worst). We have wood floors because we have 2 children with disabilities and 1 is in a wheelchair-we found these floors the easiest for them and look beautiful if you are able to keep up with the cleaning.

  18. Karyn - Pint Sized Baker

    folding and putting away laundry… it’s nonstop! And cleaning up after the cats…. yuck!

  19. Marie

    I hate folding and hanging laundry. It’s totally embarrassing, but we have a basket of what my husband calls Mt. Laundry in the bedroom. We pull out what we want to wear and spray a little Downey Wrinkle Release, and off we go. Yes, I really am that lazy.

  20. kat g

    toilets!!! If there’s ever is robot for that, I’ll give up going out to eat for a year to get my hands on one.


    Spot on with this write-up, I really think this website needs far
    more attention. I’ll probably be returning to read through more, thanks for the information!

  22. Numnum

    I’m pretty good at avoiding them all…hanging head in shame. But mopping the floor is the one I never ever want to do!

  23. Kelly

    Seriously… Mopping the floors!! I would LOVE this cleaner! We’re installing hardwood floors throughout the house next month, and I’m almost reconsidering because of the idea of sweeping/mopping regularly. (What have I done??)

  24. LauraEmm

    I seriously dislike cleaning floors. Vacuuming isn’t so bad, but the hard floors are the WORST!

  25. MissCaron

    Pretty much all household chores are bothersome but scrubbing the bathroom is my least favorite!

  26. Brooke McIntire

    Hah! I totally avoid them all! But floors are my #1 enemy. 2000 sq ft of hardwood KILLS my back!

  27. Rachel

    I hate pretty much everything that has to be done more than once a week… Sweeping/vacuuming is my top 5 most avoided chores.

  28. Mandy M.

    I despise cleaning the bathrooms in my house!! I’ll take dishes and laundry any day over bathrooms!

  29. jenifer

    My least favorite chore? That would have to be vacuuming…ugh. Just thought of having to do it makes me frown.

  30. jeannette

    I avoid laundry like the plague!! I pretty much hate everything else, but laundry is the one I whine about. it takes sooooo loooooong. wash. unload. dry. unload. fold. hang. put away. pshhhh, that’s at least 3 episodes of The Office. :-/

  31. Kim L.

    We just hired someone to clean every other week so I am avoiding them all but I think bathrooms are my least favorite.

  32. Mary C.

    Unfortunately there are way too many tasks I avoid…vaccuuming is one, but I love it when things are freshly vaccuumed!!

  33. Kristi D

    Probably a tie between ironing and washing baseboards. Both take sooo much time, and time is so precious!

  34. Mckenzie

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article
    or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel
    we could greatly benefit from each other. If you
    happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

  35. Courtney

    I try to avoid bathrooms all together, but with two young boys, I seem to clean the toilet and floor nearby constantly! I also avoid dusting. AND I wish I were more organized.

  36. Linda

    My house looks like I avoid them all, but I especially HATE cleaning toilets, especially with grandsons who visit. Their aim is not to please their grandmother! :)

  37. Katie W.

    I avoid doing laundry and doing dishes like the plague. As a matter of fact, I am avoiding them right now! ha!!

  38. Maureen

    Would love to give this little guy a try! What will they think of next? I don’t know, but I can’t wait to see!

  39. Kristen

    How can I pick just one? I hate cleaning my floors – with 2 kids and 2 dogs, it seems that is all I do. Cleaning the bathroom would be #2!!! :)

  40. Theresa Sea

    Washing dishes. We have an ancient dish washer that leaks, so until it’s replaced, we have to do them by hand and I loathe it!

  41. Caitlin

    Ironing! I hate it :(. I put it off and put it off until a huge mound of clothes builds up and then I have to spend forever getting caught up. I know that if I just iron a few pieces as they come out of the dryer than it would be over quick and not build up, but I just can’t make myself do it!

  42. lorikay

    Avoid the most is dusting – don’t know why I’d rather vacuum than dust and even clean bathrooms.

  43. Myka

    Mopping is my least favorite household chore! I’d rather clean toilets all day! Thanks for these great giveaways!

  44. Robin

    Folding laundry, is the worst I used to fold laundry after every second load and of course I would only have a odd number load at the end that would wait until I finally decided it was time to fold it.

  45. Laura

    I really avoid dusting. We live in a dusty desert area, plus we have a dog, two cats and 2 kids! Our living room furniture is really dark and even right after I dust, it looks dirty again.

  46. Trisha B.

    I’m just so tired of having to vacuum up tons of pet hair almost everyday! It really gets more and more annoying. I would love just be able to take a break and let the iRobot Mint Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner do some of the work for me.

  47. ana612

    Vacuuming and cleaning the bathroom are my most hated. But all would be a decent response from me too.

  48. Elizabeth Hanson

    I hate doing my floors. I have 3 big dogs and my floors always look dirty. I think this could seriously help me. Thanks.

  49. Bernie B

    I have been married 39 years and pretty much dislike all cleaning chores!! I would rather travel!!

  50. Lisa S.

    I hate just about all of the chores!! Mainly because I don’t have time to do them. I’m always rushing through everything!

  51. Connie Gruning

    Oh my gosh, which one do I hate the most. I’d have to say the stove. WHY WHY WHY does no one every clean up after they spill on the stove top?!?! WHY!?!? LOL and yes, all the other stuff too.

  52. Cindy

    I have a deep, soaking bathtub. HOW am I supposed to clean such a thing! I have to climb in there — I just avoid using it so I don’t have to clean it.

  53. Cindy

    I have a deep, soaking bathtub. I HATE to clean it, I really don’t even know how I am supposed to clean it without being inside the dang thing :)

  54. Janae Skriner

    It isn’t that I dislike vacuuming and mopping, but I have to do it all the time! With two cats and two dogs in the house, I vacuum every single day. I would just like a little itty bitty break. :)

  55. Julie

    I definately avoid sweeping and mopping! My whole house is hardwood floors and its the longest chore to get done!

  56. Jean Holland

    The chore I avoid the most is ironing. I only iron as needed and only when going somewhere very special.

  57. Kara E.

    I avoid mopping the kitchen floor of course! It’s where we gate the dogs when they have muddy paws, so that floor has a lot of dirt on it and I avoid cleaning it…

  58. Diane Eck

    My most hated chore is absolutely cleaning my hardwood floors!! That’s why winning this give-away would be so perfect for me!! Yeah!!

  59. Leah B

    Mopping -our whole house is hard wood floors and we have 2 dogs, a cat and a two year old. I feel like the second I have finished cleaning my floors they are already dirty again. *Ugh*

  60. Alison

    I try to avoid them all – mostly though, I HATE folding and putting away clothes from the dryer and it bothers me most (now living with more men in the house) how they dump out the clothes on the couch and leave them there. At least leave them in the dryer or fold them up after – you can’t fold cold clothes – ugh!

  61. Libby's Library

    Washing windows – never done it.
    Cleaning toilets – oh yes I must.
    Sweeping – why?
    Laundry – gotta do that.
    Dishes – naw, paper plates.
    Dusting – why?

  62. ashley

    i avoid laundry the most. there are three full baskets of clean clothes awaiting folding/hanging right now at home!

  63. Lynn Keator

    Definitely mopping the hardwood floors!!! I just don’t know how to take care of them properly! I would love to win this and try it out.

  64. Jen Murray

    I hate vacuuming – I have two beautiful labradors who shed like crazy (but they are so worth it!!)

  65. Kelster

    I do hate them all. It might be easier to think of which I avoid the least. I should go vacuum right now.

  66. Janel

    I just had another baby so pretty much right now I avoid all of them. But I mostly hate doing the bathrooms!

  67. Melissa

    I really try and avoid all housework but dusting has to be at the top. Too many small places and too many things that have to be moved.

  68. Karina Sherman

    I avoid cleaning the kitchen floor because I dirty it every day while making a mess cooking dinner. Sooo I make the hunny clean it.

  69. Alisha

    I despise cleaning baseboards. And I’m not a big fan of dishes, so we have an agreement at my house – I do laundry and my hubs does dishes! Love it!

  70. Rebecca

    I hate putting laundry away. I desperately need a robot for that. But maybe I’ll learn to love it if I no longer have to clean the floors!

  71. Ash

    I have 2 year old twins and I have to sweep my kitchen eating area so many times a day I just hate it!!

  72. Amy Tong

    I try to avoid them all if I could…but usually chores will just piling up and I’m playing catch-up constantly. But the one worse thing would be mopping the floor. I think I’m getting old and my body really reacts to it and my back hurt after just 5 minutes of mopping! This machine would help me dearly! Thank you so much for introducing it! I think my back will thank me for having one!

    amy [at] utry [dot] it

  73. Chrissy Cooper

    I really don’t like washing the dishes! Other people’s leftover food is something I will avoid at all costs :)

  74. Cheryl Rahkonen

    I avoid any chore that is in the kitchen. I hate cooking, doing dishes, cleaning the refrigerator or cleaning the floor. Besides these, I avoid doing any chores that I can-usually not successful though.

  75. Cindy

    Totally avoid the bathtub at all costs!!! Then eventually, when I realize it has won, I give up and soon realize how nice it is to have a bathtub that sparkles. Then I take a shower, and the love-hate relationship continues!

  76. Jhinnah Poole

    I avoid scrubbing our showers. We have two of them and our master is a huge walk in shower with two shower heads. It is all tile. The tile on the floor is small squares so there is a lot of grout to be scrubbed…it’s definitely a workout.

  77. Tiffany

    I just had 1400 sq ft of hardwood floors installed in my house and cleaning them has taken over my life!

  78. Michelle Cowgill

    I avoid vacuuming floors! I like vacuum lines and they’re gone two seconds after I’m done.

  79. Kristin

    I generally avoid doing laundry. The actual sorting/washing isn’t bad – it’s the folding and putting away that I hate!

  80. Emily

    I am constantly sweeping the floors in our apartment, but they never quite feel clean. This would be awesome!

  81. Brittany Davidson

    The hubby and I are moving into a new home nesxt month and it has all hardwood floors- such a blessing! But we have always had carpet. We have a carpet cleaner from our wedding registry – but now we need something to clean all of the hardwood- especially those cute little muddy pawprints from our dogs Miss Tilly and Vitto!

  82. Ka

    I’m always trying to avoid dusting and cleaning the bathroom. But I totally don’t mind vaccuuming and doing laundry (maybe that’s a little bit strange…). And I hate scrubbing the white tile kitchen floor!

  83. Ardith

    I avoid cleaning the showers. I don’t know why. When I remember to do it while I am in there and already wet, it makes it easier!

  84. Krisha Arias

    I try to avoid Laundry! It’s not so much the actual washing of the clothes that I don’t like, it’s the folding and putting away! Ugh!

  85. Cristiana Myers

    Where have you been all my life!! LOL!! I so need a “Rosie”, it’s impossible to keep my wood floors clean because of my four paw furry babies!! Thanks Amanda this is a great give away!!

  86. Kim

    I avoid doing the laundry until I absolutely need something. Thankfully, everyone else in my family does their own laundry now!

  87. Michelle

    I avoid cleaning under the furniture; we have hardwood floors….and a black lab. I could create a fur-creature after just one day of her shedding!

  88. Mary Anne

    Hi Amanda,

    Love the Mint floor cleaner – Rosie! Amen Sistah, use ONLY water on your beautiful floors. I swear by it. In fact, when we sold a house once (with 7 year old hardwood floors) the buyers thought the floor was brand new. Nuff said?

  89. Hilarie

    Floors are actually #1 on my “avoid cleaning” list! We don’t have babies crawling around anymore, so I choose to ignore them as long as I can!

  90. Maura

    I am 100% with you on mopping the floor. With having a lab , they need to be vacuumed, swept, mopped every other day and it gets old!!! How helpful this would be!! My other least fav is emptying the dishwasher.

  91. Lacey geerlings

    I definitely avoid cleaning my hardwood floors. The majority of house is hard wood, and It takes forever to do, especially with 2 dogs and 2 small kids! so winning this cleaner would help keep my sanity!

  92. Kelly

    The husband cleans the toilet, but after that would be ceiling fans since they are hard to reach and then I usually end up having to clean the floor afterwards.

  93. BOBBI

    I like to avoid ALL housework! LOL I have to admit that the floors are probably the worse for me.

  94. Stefanie

    I have two dogs and it seems like I constantly have to vacuum the floors. I vacuum and within 5 minutes, I see hair balls.

  95. Brian

    I really don’t like mopping, and loading the dishes is far more tedious than unloading to me, so I’m not a big fan of that either!

  96. Monica

    My least favorite thing to clean is the bathroom!! Toilets, showers, and sinks are not fun at all;)
