iRobot Braava Jet 240

Chalk up another one up for the machines. The iRobot Braava Jet 240 takes over the job of mopping your floors, improving over its predecessor thanks to the use of disposable cleaning pads imbued with a water-activated detergent. Fill the Braava Jet 240 up with water, snap on one of three types of cleaning pads — wet mopping, damp sweeping, and dry sweeping — then press clean. The device whirs to life, recognizing the inserted pad and cleaning appropriately. Its targeted spray breaks up dirt and stains while sensors ensure it isn’t soaking your furniture and rugs. And if the whole disposable pad part is a turn off, try their reusable, washable wet mopping pads instead which use just water to clean tiles and hardwood.
