I don't care if anybody's watching. I don't covet any desire to eat stuff off the floor. I'd do it only if camping and only if I had no choice to do without or eat what I have.

I'm amazed that anybody would eat stuff off the floor, unless there's some special circumstance (camping).

So, if a whole bag of potatoes or carrots gets dropped and explodes on your floor do you just throw it out?

addie, dw has the shark steam mop model #s3501. i think we bought the same model for my mom, but when dw bought her's a year or so ago it came with interchangeable heads: a rectangular one and a triangular one. my mom's only came with the rectangular one, but i believe the rest of the unit is the same.

there's a newer model out that supposedly gets the steam even hotter to guarantee disinfection, but it seemed flimsy so we got the older model for mom. the older one runs anywhere from $80 on sale to around $120 full price.

but you make your money back on all of the food you can eat that drops on the floor over time..

you do realize that many veggies grow in or on dirt, and meat recently surrounded a poo tract, and as we speak, your body is crawling inside and out with millions of creatures...

All of those "creatures" are exactly where they belong. I"m not putting them into my mouth.

I'm referring to food falling out of the pan or out of my plate and landing on the floor.

Okay, that makes more sense to me. I was also thinking of stuff that falls on the floor while I'm prepping it. It seems to me that stuff falls or rolls off the counter while I'm cutting it up, on a fairly regular basis. Almost always when stuff falls out of a frying pan, it falls onto my stove.
