What would you pay for convenience? If I am honest, I would pay a lot…for certain conveniences, like cleaning.

I can clean and I do clean but it is not something I want to have to make time for in my day. We are fortunate enough to have Jane who helps out 3 days a week and she really is an integral part of our little ecosystem.

But she only comes 3 times a week and we work from home, school from home, have Kobe and two kids – all creating dust, dirt and mess. Some days it does feel never ending.

The point? I would pay a lot for convenience when it comes to cleaning. The Mi Robot Vacuum Mop 2 provides me with that convenience!


I will be honest I was sceptical at first, it didn’t seem possible that a little circular machine could do what the big cumbersome vacuum does but I am now convinced!

We have had our Mi Robot Vacuum Mop 2 for just over a month now and it really has made life a little easier. On the days that Jane isn’t here and over weekends we let it run through the house and it just helps to keep the dust (and dog hair) at bay.

We can set it to run while we do other things, which saves me time and effort. I don’t have to drag out the vacuum cleaner and then move the plug around when it gets too short (even with an extension) and then get the mop and the water. I simply just press a button.

There are obviously some limitations – if you spill a bag of flour or your kid dumps a bucket of sand in the toy room – it is not going to be able to clean that up. It is best suited for light everyday dust and dirt. You will still need to sweep up or use a bigger vacuum for those bigger messes but those aren’t the norm.

It is also important to tidy up before you let the Mi Robot Vacuum Mop 2 free. It obviously picks up bigger things and will avoid them but things like small dolls clothes or pencils will cause issues, so you need to do a quick tidy up before you start it.

Our Mi Robot Vacuum Mop 2 has a mop functionality that is all kinds of awesome. You can run the vacuum, hook up the mop and voila sparkling clean floors.

Again, it is not going to mop up your spilt cup of coffee but once you have wiped the bulk of the spill, it will clean the floor for you.

Everything for the Mi Robot Vacuum Mop 2 can be controlled and saved on the MI Home App. It tracks how long each cleaning session was, where it cleaned etc. You can set up cleaning schedules, use the remote-control feature and turn the vacuum on and off from the app.

The app is pretty nifty to have, you can connect all your Xioami products making it easy to access them from one place.

  1. I want one of these, and have looked at them so many times. As I have dogs it would not do for the whole house, but for my daughters bedroom where she needs the rest and not being disturbed with our normal hoover, this would be a great alternative.

  2. Nice review of this robot vacuum. We’re actually looking to buy a new vacuum at home and I’ll consider this. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a cool gadget and one that is definitely worth the investment. I’ve always wanted a robot vacuum…so cool!

  4. I could totally use a robotic vacuum. I’m always struggling to keep up with cleaning and this would be a great idea, especially with the messes from the kids and pets!

  5. I need to get one. I have one but it does not wrk well. The Neato Robotics is pretty cool but I would tray any type that works beautifully 😉 It is so convenient right!?

  6. This sounds like an amazing product. What a great way to get the cleaning done. They do help make life easier.
