Rather than poke and prod at it with the same cleaning supplies, you'll need to invest in a powerful steam mop, one that's expertly designed to unlatch even the toughest of messes. Start with the Shark S3501 Steam Pocket Mop, which is currently on sale at Amazon. The steam mop takes regular water, heats it up in just 30 seconds, and produces super hot steam that instantly erases dirt and grime on hard and sealed floor surfaces including laminate, marble, tile, and stone. Thanks to its quick-drying properties, the floors will be dry in no time. Plus, it can even remove 99.9 percent of germs and bacteria. The steam mop comes with two washable microfiber pads, so you don't have to drag out heavy mops and buckets. It's also designed with a soft-grip handle, making it easy to maneuver around the house, and comes with a quick-release cord that extends up to 18 feet. Amazon Buy It!

One reviewer wrote, "It has even taken up some stains that I thought were there forever," while another user said: "With this mop, cleaning my tile floors takes me less than half the time I spent with a mop and bucket, and my floors dry a lot faster, too." A third shopper explained that they had hired a professional cleaning service to deep clean their house, and after they left wanted to test out this steam mop themselves. They shared: "No disrespect to the cleaning service because they did their best, but this mop pulled up the ground-in dirt and grime that a traditional mop couldn't hope to touch. The bright white mop cover came up dark brown after just one pass!" Head to Amazon to get the Shark S3501 Steam Pocket Mop while it's 39 percent off.
