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!

3 DOGS and 3 KIDS, I REALLY need this!!! Oh! and I live in the middle of 40 acres which means DUST and DIRT, lots and lots of both!
We are about to put some new flooring in and tht would be amazing to help keep it clean!
Just bought a house with all hard wood floors. The mint would be my new bestie too!
Nice!!! I would love this… I need this:-)
Hardwood and tile floors with 2 boys and a dog! That about sums it up! 🙂
I need a new best friend (shh, don’t tell my hubby) because then I can focus on more important things like my family. I really don’t like to spend all day cleaning, even though I know it’s important.
The Mint Automatic Floor Cleaner would become the new love of my life. I typically scrub the floors on my hands and knees and then visit the chiropractor. Ha! I’d love this – great giveaway, Cheryl!
With 3 year old toddlers, this would be a dream come true.
We just put in new hardwood and ceramic tile…I have 3 full size dogs, so it is a daily chore the clean the floor.
This would be a wonderful helper to someone with fibromyalgia! Not mentioning any names, of course. 🙂
With messy boys and husband this would be a lifesaver.
I would love the Mint because I am unable to clean like I used to because of medical issues and this would be a life saver! My bathroom & kitchen floors are suffering from neglect!
I need any help I can get cleaning up after 2 small children and a husband.
This would give me more time to spend special time with my family 🙂
With three animals (dog, 2 cats) I can’t keep my floors clean enough! I’m terrified to think about having a child with floors like this! This would be amazing and I would spend less time stressing over floors!
I have all hardwoods except in the bedrooms and bathrooms, and I am a slave to my floors……………….lol
I have 4 dogs and a cat who thinks she is a dog. They run out side in the snow and gather up snow toes and then come inside our 900sqft home and leave snowballs on the floor. Most i pick up but some the catdog likes to bat around and play with. I am forever having to clean the floors up after them. This would make life so much easier! Thank you for the chance to try a new product!
With a 4 year old and 2 dogs, this would be a great help to keep the house clean!
I didn’t even know there was a Mint Plus. It would be great to win this cool gadget.
I would love to have a mint – three boys, a husband and a dog are messy and I need help keeping up with them!!!
Would love to have a Mint. So would my kitchen hardwood floor!
My house is all hardwood floors and we have two cats and a dog.
Living in a 3rd world country as a full-time missionary, dry season lasts about 9 out of 12 months. My house is constantly dusty. Add to that 2 dogs that shed and you’ve got a great example of why i need this cleaning machine. Blessings.
I have 3 kids, a dog, and a manchild. I’d love a mint (I’m going back to work, too!)
I have 5 children and a dog – our kitchen is always in need of a good cleaning!!!
I would love to win this- because I have two small children and am sweeping and mopping constantly!
My kitchen floor could use this.
This would be perfect for cleaning my new kitchen floor!
I wish I could have a cleaning lady clean my home every day, but this would be the next best thing! Thanks for sharing!
Our kitchen floors are nearly impossible to keep clean, so I would use it there.
With all hardwood floors and toddlers..this would be great!!
I wish I could win this so I could give it to my sister. She is always sweeping and mopping her kitchen. I would love to give her a break and this looks it would be perfect.
I’m so jealous of the floors you must have in your house, between the vacuum and now this! I would love to have this as my baby is getting ready to be a mobile crawler and I’d love to feel more assured about the cleanliness of my floor without having to bust my bootie to mop it daily! Thanks for another great giveaway opportunity!
We have so much tile that I just can’t keep it clean. This would be perfect for me and sore back!
I have a dog and a cat, hardwood floors throughout the house. I feel like I am always sweeping the floor…this would be amazing!
That thing is awesome!
I definitely need this Mint! I have a dog that messes up the floors with drool and hair. It would make my like so much easier! Everyone can use a little more time to love on their family, right?! Thanks for the opportunity!
Looks like an awesome cleaner for our kitchen, kitty would love to play with it too.
I’d love it because the floor of my kitchen and living/dining area is always filthy. It’s a very high traffic area (small house) so we are always tracking dirt and who knows what else into our house. I also have 3 boys who are always playing on the floor and walking around barefoot so it would be great to know the floor is clean (which unfortunately is not always the case because how many times a week can I mop the floor?)
oh I’d love this we have all bare floors downstairs and this would sure help me keep them spotless!
Because my 80lb dog and 2.5 yr old boy keep my floor ridiculous.
I’d love this because I am a busy mom of 3 very active children with two jobs and I’m trying to stay active at the Y to keep myself happy, but boy is my house reflecting that!! 🙁
Thank you so much for the chance!!
What a great way to always have clean floors!!!
We have lots of hard wood and tile…I could really put that gadget to work! Robotics just keep making life better and better!
Oh my goodness, with a 3 year old, a newborn, and a 160 pound dog, this would be wonderful!!!
Well I love all gadgets and this one is very cool and would give me even more time for internet browsing, while it browses my floors.
between the dogs, and the kids, we have to clean our floors daily to stay on top of all the dog hair and dirt, this would make life so much easier
We have 4 kids and 3 dogs! We have to clean our hardwood floors daily to keep everything under control. This would be awesome! If I won this, maybe I could get to that mountain of laundry!
I like that it can wet mop.. I’d love to get the grime off the kitchen floors without breaking my back !
I will be more than happy to have the mint… I don´t have too much time but like having a clean house, mainly now with our 11-month-baby Julia
