Hi Paul, I still have the receipt sitting on my desk (because I am the worst at letting stuff pile up!!!) .
Shipping & handling was $7.72. So my grand total with tax was $79.25, and it included 5 extra pads, which seem to run about $10 each ( I keep finding 2 for $20). I really needed more than 2, as I have the bathrooms, two entryways and the kitchen to do, and I am oddly freakish about using a fresh one for each space
But if you only need 2 pads then Amazon is the same price. And I know places like Bed Bath & Beyond do those "20% off" coupons a lot, so that might be good to.
I have two steam mops, a Shark and a Maxkon, bought on crazysales: http://www.crazysales.com.au/steam-mops-accessories/
Both work fine. The more force you put behind it, the more it will steam and thus thoroughly clean the floors. I use it on our kitchen tile (it doesnít completely clean grout) and on our wood floors and it always leaves them shinny and clean. Havenít had any trouble with durability-it works as it did the day I took it out of the box. The price of the two brands is almost at the same level. Both can handle hard wood floor, and worth a payment.
