Finally, finally my beloved Scooba is resurrected. It is Risen! And the angels sing.
(An aside: Scooba The First died when I was still waxing the nethers, so it was a while ago. Scooba the Second died the same way. (Wait - that suggested I was Scooba-ing the nethers. Its just last year was divided ito the pre-Brazillian epoch and the Modern Era.) That's when I Googled and found that the older Scoobas need a firmware update so they don't make their batteries self-destruct. This aside is for those who got here by Googling "My Scooba won't run." Call iRobot and get the OSMO update device.)
But Scooba is back, Right now the Risen Scooba is licking dog urine off the floor. I've done all I can with the wet mop. but Gary just can't shake the feeling that no matter how much you mop the floor, you just dilute the dog urine. Granted, it may be one part pee to five thousand parts water, but it's still there unless Scooba sucks it up.
During the weeks I waited for the OSMO device Gary tried to put on a brave face. "I like the way the floor looks with the pee film on it."
"Stop it. I'm trying to get this thingee from the Scooba people."
"No, it's like the floor has a golden glow. Like it's been distressed."
"Yeah, yeah, yeah."
"Hey! We could have the dog eat oranges, then his pee would be orange-scented! Like Orange Glo, but with ammonia!"
So. Puppy Glo. Look for it in stores near you.
(And if you are grossed out that we've been walking on pee-filmy floors for two weeks, know that I could buy these Kinoki Foot Pads and they will leech out the toxins in my body through the soles of my feet.)
