The Mint: A Swiffer robot
by Mark R
Have you seen those Swiffer ads that show that the mop or broom is jealous of the lady with the Swiffer? They usually play “Love Stinks” or some other dead love song from a bygone era.
Yeah, I can’t stand those commercials either, but now it is Swiffer’s turn to be jealous with the Mint.
Simply put, the Mint is a Roomba for hardwood floors. That is how my source describes it, and I’m pretty certain that is how others would describe it as well.
After all, it is great to have those vacuum robots suck up the trash on the carpets, but that still leaves the hardwood floors unattended by your robot cleaners. The Mint has a Swiffer dry rag to get the dust, and then has it a wet cloth to do a mopping job.
So, it is a cleaning robot that can sweep and mop, and has a black diamond look to it. What more can you ask for?
Perhaps a better name. I can understand the name of Roomba, but that whole Mint thing implies something that you eat after dinner or before an important appointment.
Well, whatever reason they chose the name, here it is. You can get it for about $250.
