Clean Floors Without the Work? iRobot Mint 5200 Automatic Floor Cleaner (Giveaway)

I will be the first to admit that I am not the best house cleaner around. I can always find something so much better to be doing. However, cleaning is a must when you have two children and a husband that love to make messes.

I just found one of the best products that will help me to save time and keep my hard floors clean! The iRobot Mint Plus 5200 Automatic Hard Floor Cleaner. You know that we have all heard of the Roomba Vacuuming Cleaner but that’s just for carpeted floors. I don’t mind running the vaccum, well actually since Gracie is old enough she has that chore now…but sweeping and mopping my kitchen and bathrooms? Not my idea of fun!

The Mint Plus 5200 system is so easy to use! All you have to do is charge it for four hours or until the blue light comes on, attach the cleaning pad, and activate the amazing “GPS for your house” system cube…and place it on the floor. It’s really neat how it works. You place the cube on your countertop and it has a way of mapping the room. It then sends signals to the cleaner on the floor. It sweeps the entire floor getting into the corners and goes around area rugs, furniture, or stairs.

I have to say I LOVE TECHNOLOGY!

What I really love is this sweeps the floor but it also wet mops your hard floors. No more messy mop and bucket! You use disposable (like Swiffer pre-moistened cleaning pads) or reusable microfiber cleaning pads with the Mint Plus 5200. I like the microfiber because I am not going to have any waste when I am done. Just wash and reuse!

When dry sweeping it covers up to 1,000 square feet and when mopping it cleans up to 350 square feet in a single cleaning cycle. The battery life is great too. Fully charged you get 4 hours of cleaning time!

This allows you to clean your floors while you are doing something else. So I can be dusting or cleaning windows and when I’m done, my floors will be also!

And here at 5 Minutes to Mom, we want to make your holidays a little less stressful!

  1. says

    This is a dream gift, save so much time for me I would much rather be savoring the moments while creating memories with my children. TY for the opportunity.

  2. says

    Ugh, it feels like I am CONSTANTLY sweeping and mopping around here – at least once a day. I’m pretty sure my kids get more food on the floor than in their mouths!

  3. Nicole says

    I vacuum every other day. I sweep my kitchen about 3 times a week. I’m a mopping slacker, which I do, maybe once every two weeks.

  4. Robyn says

    I can’t remember where I saw this recently, but I was VERY interested. I love the idea of a room sweeper/mopper. so great

  5. Sonya Morris says

    I sweep the floors several times a day because of a messy toddler. I mop about every other day because of–you guessed it, a messy toddler who spills everything!!

  6. Jean K. says

    I’m on my hands and knees cleaning the floor everyday. I also have a bad back, so this little number can literally save my back and knees.

  7. Debbie Bashford says

    I clean them about once a week, or more if needed. Mopping not so often, I hate to drag all the stuff out to mop, I normally do a quick once over if company is coming.

  8. Erika says

    I have a crawler so I mop and vacuum at least twice a day (if not more) otherwise my human vacuum would beat me to all the little itty bitty specks!

  9. Erin P says

    I clean as in sweep and vac all floors once a week, but I am a little embarrassed to report that I only mop my kitchen and bathrooms about once a month. :)

  10. says

    This sounds insane but EVERY DAY and often more than once. Sweeping and mopping. We have tile and laminate all over on the main floor, we homeschool so we’re here all day and I have a special needs child who spends his days on the floor so it’s important that they are always clean!!

  11. Amy B says

    I sweep once a day because I have kids who track everything in but mopping I only do once a week. I really should mop at least 3 times a week with all the junk my kids seem to track in..

  12. Kelley F says

    I vacuum (we have tile everywhere) everyday but I don’t mop as often as I should. I broke my back a few years ago and mopping that much tile is just too much for my back to handle.

  13. LYLE CULP JR says


  14. Hanna says

    Once a week. I should do it more often, but what a pain! My toddler insists on being held while I vacuum. It’s exhausting!!

  15. Amanda Rauch says

    Down on hands and knees with the pine sol. This little machine would be a wonderful addition to my home! Thanks for the giveaway.

  16. Sandy VanHoey says

    I vacuum every other day, sometimes every day and I mop (all floors are laminate), once a week and some rooms twice a week

  17. Amanda Phillips says

    I shouldn’t admit to this. I really, really shouldn’t… But… You asked!

    I mop… Once every month or two. I know. It’s horrible of me. In my defense though, we have a large porch that gets most of the dirt off of our feet and we don’t wear shoes in the house. We also spot clean right away if anything gets dropped or spilled. Plus there are no children in our home so no one is on the floors.

    I sweep about once a week just because dirt does come in some.

    Honestly I know I should be a better house-keeper but after working all night, coming in to make meals for my medically ill parents, taking them to doctors appointments, and then trying to get some sleep after running my own errands… I’m not worried about it. Judge me if you want, I don’t mind :)

  18. Mark Percy says

    Tried a roomba but with dark wood floors they always appear smudged. Wet swiffers work but are a pain. This would be a huge upgrade.

  19. Katy M says

    I sweep with the “Swiffer” every day or every other day. I mop once or twice a week. I vacuum twice a week. Ugh! I’m tired just thinking about it. :)

  20. Tamra H says

    Oh dear.. not as often as I should! Probably mop once every two weeks if I’m lucky! (this is why I need this.. haha)

  21. Kelly Rae says

    Now that our baby girl is crawling. I need this so she doesn’t eat dust! And allow mamas back a rest from vacuuming.

  22. Kristen Padilla says

    I sweep at least once to twice a week but don’t mop often enough. In fact my husband does most of the mopping!

  23. Leslie Galloway says

    Not enough! hehe. I probably sweep weekly, but don’t mop unless it needs it… at least monthly.

  24. Debi H. says

    I sweep my kitchen floor every day and mop 3 or 4 times a week. I try to do the wood floors once a week but doesn’t always happen.

  25. Barbara Mayes says

    Vacuum the carpets and I have a large portion of my home that is linoleum..and I use a large mop bucket with wringer and an very large mop that I purchased from a Janitorial supply company.

  26. Stephanie says

    Every single day! We have pets that shed so I am constantly sweeping and mopping to keep it up and keep my floors clean!

  27. michelle dement says

    i have to sweep everyday and mop every other day…its amazing how much stuff gets on the floor in just a short amount of time

  28. Jessica W. says

    I sweep and vacuum about twice a week (sometimes more depending on how messy everyone is) , mopping comes in about once a month.

  29. Michelle P says

    I swiffer the kitchen every night but the remaining hardwoods get cleaned about once a week. I have a shedding dog so the iRobot Mint would be AWESOME.

  30. Roxana B says

    Everyday. I have a Fiancee and dog that constantly bring in dirt from the outside. Plus our dog sheds constantly. I’m always sweeping and mopping. More than I’d like to.

  31. Cathy C says

    I broom sweep every day because I have 3 boys and a husband who are always tracking grass and dirt in the house! I should mop more often, but only manage about once a month. We just installed wood floors throughout the house, so I could sooo use an iRobot Mint!

  32. Jessica Gatewood says

    I am trying to win this for my mom. I would give it to her for the simple fact she has done so much for everyone else and gets nothing in return. My mom has a big heart. So its time for her to have a break and not worry about her floors.

  33. barbara wright says

    I hate cleaning my kitchen floor! I nag myself every day until I do it. So it’s probably about a week before I can’t stand listening to myself anymore and it’s easier to just DO it.

  34. Jessica B says

    Not often enough! I sweep / mop every few days but with 3 kids and a dog it could definitely stand to be done more frequently.

  35. Beth Palacios says

    I mop about once a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less, but I definately “spot” clean daily. I have two small kids and two dogs and one messy hubby!

  36. susan smoaks says

    i try to clean the floors each week at least once, but i am super busy and sometimes it doesn’t get done

  37. Lucy Schwartz says

    I like the answer that someone commentd on . Very noncommital – less than I should. And that is MY final answer.

  38. kasey says

    I hate to say it but I don’t clean the floors as much as I should…I clean them with a Quick Vac about every other day. But with 2 dogs, I should be cleaning them 10 times a day!!

  39. silika says

    I vacuum 24/7!!! we have a pit bull named bossy and she sheds her dog hair like no other!!! all over our wooden floors!!



  41. Maureen says

    NOT ENOUGH! I finally “cleaned” my kitchen floors the other day other than just sweeping them. I was telling myself a need a steam mop before my 2 month old starts crawling. Fingers crossed.

  42. Corrina says

    I have 2 dogs and a family of 6! I drive kids around all day from 8 am to 6pm daily!!! my hardwood floors get mopped when a kid spills water on the floor :) I need help!!!!!

  43. Minnie C. says

    Sweeping, mopping and vacuuming are things I can’t do any longer. It’s been seven years and I actually miss it at times. To win would be a blessing, I’m bed ridden so the iRobot Mint would be a life saver.
