IMHO the "Mopping attachment" is a marketing gimmick used by suppliers of inferior robot vacuums to generate interest in their products. It is all but useless.

Maybe you can stick a UV lamp under there too - to kill microbes?!

Careful with self-stick used not to stick onto the unit ID label with serial no.

[edit] both the cloth and frame may also be listed on Ebay. Thorough marketing.

I think the dry Swiffer would work well on tiles and timber floors just to get that extra clean finish.

Having owned a mint I found that the dry clean was handy, the wet Swiffer was pointless tho as was the wet cloth.

Then, according to your point of view the idea of Braava seems 'useless' too?

You are correct. I played with it a bit and found using wet mopping cloths from swiffer work really well to get rid of minor dirt stuck in the tiled floor. Also dry mop visually seems to catch a bit of hair and i bet it does some fine dust as well.

Just got this one from aliexpress and it's really awesome! Sticks very well and has good pressure on it, so the floor gets pretty clean. Best for bathroom! :thumbup:
