While I can’t say I’ve enjoyed having a Roomba around the house (we have hardwood floors,) I can say that a small part of me has longed for something that would… yes, wash hardwood floors. Because I’m lazy like that.

The good news is that it’s happening: Scooba. While I’m not too crazy about the name (reminds me of Scooby-Doo,) I think the idea is boffo. Scooba takes care of washing and drying the floor on top of picking up the little bits and dust bunnies.

My concerns…. 1) This uses a Clorox solution, which probably means it has bleach in it, and we’re a no-bleach household. 2) It seems to require purchase of said solution. I don’t want to be locked in to anything, if I can help it. And 3) it’s going to cost more than $5.00. Doh!

They really need to work on the Lawnba.
