Review of Shark Steam Pocket Mop S3501

The Shark Steam Pocket Mop is a device that was obviously intended to be used for small cleanup jobs. It was very portable, had a high steam rate and a large nozzle surface. It was capable of fitting into tight locations and glided across the floor very well. This made it the best steam mop for sudden spills or still wet accidents. However, it struggled with jobs which were a little bit bigger.

This pocket mop struggled with tougher stains; Particularly ones which dried on or were of an oily nature. This fact means that this cleaner isn’t the best one for big jobs or for ones which are particularly tough or require a lot of elbow grease. It’s just not designed for those kind of jobs.

If you keep in mind that this product is really intended to be used on smaller jobs, then this is a perfect model for someone who is looking for a machine which is portable and lightweight. It might not tackle the tough jobs but is still more than capable of handling day to day cleaning.
