The Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner
When you have a house with 3 inside dogs, sometimes it takes an army to keep the house clean! Even though there is only one one dog that sheds, there is one dog, who wishes to remain anonymous, that likes to collect leaves and sprinkle them all over my house. So needless to say, it’s a never ending battle to keep it clean, and I need all the help I can get.
I was so thrilled when the people at iRobot reached out to me again, asking if I’d like to try The Mint + Floor Cleaner. It was perfect timing because I had recently spent some time with Carolyn Forte, Director of the Home Appliances and Cleaning Products Department at Good Housekeeping, and she raved about The Mint cleaner when we discussed robotic floor cleaning devices. So the Mint was on my radar and I was dying to give it a go.
Let me tell you guys………Carolyn wasn’t kidding. The Mint is a DREAM! Not only is she whisper quiet but she’s efficient and does an amazing job! Mint Plus is not a vacuum, it operates quietly so you – and your pets – won’t be disturbed while it cleans.
You may know, I have a few other automatic floor cleaners, but I have to say, The Mint+ is my favorite! I first tested the Mint on my kitchen tile, using the dry sweep mode. The microfiber cloth was super easy to attach to the cleaning pad and with the push of a button the Mint started its business. (I love that I can use the microfiber cloth or I can use disposable Swiffer pads). I left it alone while I
ate a cupcake did other housework. I kept checking on it, because I couldn’t hear it, I thought it was stuck and had turned off. I finally left it alone and when I checked on it a little later, the Mint was done. Being that the mint is not a vacuum, I wondered how well it would do……. Well, the proof was in the microfiber cloth, it was filthy! It was a little shocking to see how filthy my floor was!
I then dampened the mopping cloth and used the Pro-Clean Reservoir Pad and had the Mint mop the same floor. Again, I was surprised by how dirty the cloth was when it was finished!
The big shock came, when I ran it in our family room, with laminate floors. The Mint is small and goes under all the furniture, so it catches all the lose dog hair and dust bunnies. I love that I don’t have to move the furniture any more to clean under it.
You can click here to see the Mint in action at my house. It’s a 6 second video clip I made and shared on Vine recently. Are you familiar with Vine? It’s basically a free smart phone app like Instagram, but in video. If you have a Twitter account, it will take just a few minutes to get on Vine.
What does The Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner Do?
It keeps dust and pet hair under control for you. Designed exclusively for hard surface floors, Mint Plus sweeps and mops using dry and pre-moistened cleaning cloths.
Guided by the enhanced NorthStar® Navigation System 2.0, Mint Plus cleans methodically by moving back and forth across open areas in straight lines, working around furniture and rugs, and cleaning along baseboards. Mint Plus’s compact design gets into tight spaces, under furniture and into other areas that are hard to reach with traditional mops and sweepers.
Some of my favorite features of the Mint Plus Floor Cleaner
- Sweeps and Mops: In Sweep mode, Mint Plus uses dry cleaning cloths to pick up dust, dirt and hair, keeping your floors barefoot-friendly every day. In Mop mode, Mint Plus uses wet (or pre-moistened) cloths and a special mopping action to pick up the deeper dirt and grime
- Whisper Quiet: you can work , carry on phone conversations or even sleep while the Mint cleans.
- Fast charging: charges in 4 hour, or turbo charge in 2 hours with the charging cradle
- Easy to use: Simply attach a cleaning cloth, set Mint Plus down and press either the Sweep or Mop button
- Able to clean larger or multiple rooms in a single cleaning cycle, covering up to 350 square feet mopping and 1,000 square feet sweeping (2,000 with an additional NorthStar® Navigation Cube).
- Cleans where vacuums can’t: Because of its small size (only 9.6 x 8.5 x 3.1 inches), Mint Plus can get under sofas, beds, tables, and work in tight corners where large vacuums can’t.
The Mint Plus Automatic Floor Cleaner includes the Mint Plus Cleaner, NorthStar Navigation Cube with 2 C batteries, charger, 3 pack of cleaning cloths (2 dry sweeping cloths and 1 wet mopping cloth), and a Manufacturer’s 1-year limited warranty. Mint works with both disposable cleaning cloths and re-usable microfiber cloths for dry sweeping and wet mopping floors.
If you have pets and hard floors…………YOU NEED THE MINT PLUS! I use it every day, and wake up to clean floors! With a busy life, this is a MUST HAVE! I love that my floors are always clean!

I’d like one to give to my mother because my mother since I was little has scrubbed the floor on her hands and knees. I think this is a brilliant product that would save her hours of cleaning up after both the dogs and humans that live with her
Would love to have this. HARD to keep floors clean with 3 cats.
A working mom w/ 2 teenage boys, 1 cat, 1 dog, I really needs this!!!!!!
I would loooove to have one of these! It would get a workout..
I would love to win this because I have all wood floors.
I would love to win this!! I have all hardwood floors and several dogs!
I would love this!! With a big shedding lab and now two kiddos this looks like a must when I return to work!
I am in need of this bc I have two babies and two dogs…sigh…
The floors in our home are beautiful immediately after they’ve been cleaned—and the beauty lasts about 5 minutes, until work boots and freshly-lotioned-feet start walking on them. I’m forever trying to clean the floors and have gone through 4 different floor cleaning systems in less than 1 year. I would love to take a much-needed and hopefully permanent break from sweeping and mopping the floor.
I have one messy dog and two teenagers (three if you want to count my husband) and would love to have clean floors all of the time.
Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway! My dogs are constantly tracking in dirt & shedding fur all over our floors. I would LOVE having the Mint clean up after them so I could get back to my day!
This would clean up so much easier.
This would be life changing 😉

I have two little dogs and an unfinished (aka: dirt-turned mud when it rains) backyard in our new home. Since I work out of my home I’m constantly sweeping, vacuuming and washing floors free of dog hair and muddy law prints (because who can REALLY get all the dirt off their paws with a towel) before every client meeting. The Mint+ would change my life for the better.
I’m imagining the Mint cruising around my kitchen, dining and foyer right now. It’s bliss.. I need one of these!! Oh lord, let luck be on my side!!! 🙂
My home has all hardwoods on the main floor and tile in the basement. Oh how I’d love this to take care of my least favorite chore!
I’d love to win! I have such a hard time staying on top of all the pet hair.
Dog hair, cat hair and winter footprints on the hardwood floors. Wish it would crawl up the table legs and dust, too!
I love everything about my dog but the fur … everywhere. Sounds like my dog and Mint+ are a perfect combination!
This would be awesome for my new house. We decided to keep with concrete floors to help with the allergens and can’t bear to let go of our dog and cats!
How could I not own one! We have 6 kids & a constant influx of visitors. You can imagine how much dirt & dust gets tracked into our home! I would get some well needed HELP if I owned a Mint!
It sure would be nice to have this so my one-year-old stops eating crumbs she finds on the floor.
I have a Bernese Mountain Dog and he has a lot of hair. It would help a lot with keeping up on that. I also love to Multi task.
This would really help clean up all the dirt my new puppy and husband drag in!
I would really love this floor cleaner because I have all hard wood and tile floors with a cat and a 4 year old boy. I feel like I’m constantly sweeping and cleaning the floors!
I would love this to clean my wood floors. Set it and watch it go. Pick me 🙂
I am obsessed with cleaning my floors and with baby #4 coming next month this would be a lifesaver!
This sounds fantastic! With three kids, three cats, and me working long days until the early evening, I would love to come home to a clean floor! Does it clean kitchen counters, too? 🙂
I would love to win this to clean my downstairs floors without moving furniture!
this looks like a life saver with my bamboo floors, 2 teenagers and a lab
I have two dogs that get more floor so dirty everyday. I have hardwood floors all over and could use this cleaner so bad.
Oh how I would love to win this floor cleaner!!! The dog, the kids and the wood floors…..
We have an apartment full of hardwood floors that are just impossible to keep clean without mopping every day!
I’d like to win this for my mother. She has bad knees and could use a little break!
I’m a mom of 2 young children, a messy husband and a cat. I work full time outside the home and also help my husband with his carpentry business (I’m his unpaid secretary, web content manager and marketing team.) Often times the floors get neglected for longer than I’d like. This little machine would make a huge difference for our family!!
I would love one because I have 2 dogs and 2 children. It’s hard to find time to sweep and mom and vacuum every day, but my house really needs it so my 2 year old daughter can be on the floor. She has bad allergies and needs clean everything! Thanks for the giveaway!
I would love this! I have arthritus in many of my joints and this looks like what I need.
3 kids + 1 dog that sheds means HELP : )
I would love this… with a few companion pets that shed and me with mobility issues, I’m sure it would help out a great deal!
I love my laminate floors, but with kids and dogs it’s hard to keep clean. This would be an awesome helper!
I would love this for our new house! We have a baby that is 4 months old and will be crawling soon, so this would be awesome to have around!
I am a neat freak & vacuum 5-6 times a week, so this would be great for me as a time saver! I think our daughter would think it was pretty neat too!
I would love to have this wonderful new product. I have 2000 sq. ft. of black tile that is so hard to keep clean especially with two dogs going in and out all day. This looks like a miracle to me!
1 hunting and fishing and woodworking husband
1 – 70+lb Mastiff
all tile and wood floors
I NEED THIS!
Gosh, I could really use this. I hope I win and good luck to everyone else as well!!
I would love one to help keep my dining and kitchen clean.. My husband is deploying and it will be me and 4 small boys.. Any little bit to help out would be beautiful
I would love the mint because I have 3 children under 5, and a dog, my Floors are always a mess and having the mint would free up more time to play and enjoy my 3 girls 🙂
We have hardwood floors and/or laminate in 80%+ of the house. With one tiny (but super-shedder) dog and tons of leaves, dirt, etc, the floors need sweeping and mopping nearly every day. Would love to regain some of that cleaning time for other things.
I have dogs and kiddos…..I could use a little help keeping the floor clean!
