Ikea pads
#1
We had a thread here at one time (Search doesn't find it for some reason) about some round microfiber bathmats that sell for $6 that some people bought and tried out as carpet cleaning buffer pads.

I'm wondering how they've held up for those who bought them and what you think?

I originally only bought one.  I just went back and bought 10 more - beige ones this time.

So far they seem to be working good as far as picking up moisture. I'm not convinced they are that great for dirt removal, they might be I'm just not sure yet.  So far it seems like they will have a decent life length.

Since this place is dead I don't expect too much response - if any! Cool

Thanks..... I actually was a member of Pad Life at one time.  I left the group as it wasn't one I wanted to belong to anymore.  I wish it was busier here.
