Cycle 1 Sweep and Pre-Soak: Scooba sweeps up loose dirt and debris and puts down a thin sheen of water or iRobot Hard Floor Cleaner to soak into any stuck-on messes.
But there are times where using a gadget or device can be more of a chore than the chore itself. That's what I thought as I charged up a review unit from iRobot, filled up Scooba 230's tank (use warm water; not hot — hot water can damage the robot) and added the special iRobot Hard Floor cleaner (although you do not have to use it; you can just use water), all in the name of saving myself the use of some paper towels and a nose clip.
* When used as directed with iRobot Hard Floor Cleaner, laboratory testing results indicate removal of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria after two passes of the Scooba Floor Scrubbing Robot. Individual results may vary.
Our iRobot Hard Floor Cleaner cleaning solution is an all natural, specially designed cleaning solution formulated for the iRobot Scooba floor scrubbing robot. The cleaner is safe on most hard floors, including sealed hardwood. It is concentrated so you get 32 cleaning cycles per 16 oz bottle.
