Spring cleaning. Ugh. We all do it and we all most likely dread it. I am sure there are varying degrees of obsessiveness when it comes to cleaning. I am towards the higher end of the spectrum. Something about Spring (probably the fact that we have been buried in snow for 3 months) makes us motivated to clean every part of the house. There is nothing better than having clean windows and the fresh air of spring flowing through your home. We recently partnered with HomeRight to share their new SteamMachine Plus. We have had many steam mops in the past, whether they be ones we purchased or reviewed, and this one by far, excites me the most. Keep reading, you can win one of your own!
It is super easy to assemble and comes with a variety of cleaning attachments. You can clean/steam floors, tile, grout, your mattress, fabric, furniture (only certain fabrics), drapery and more. It’s insane what this thing does! The triangle head allows you to get in corners and still have the ability to steam. I love that! I also love the fact that it’s chemical-free.
You only add water to the reservoir and that is a huge benefit when you have dogs that like to lick the floor.
Living with four generations under one roof plus two dogs, our floors are constantly disgusting. Whether it be drool, paw prints, muddy kids shoes or my dads gross work boots, our floors take a beating. Of course we mop and clean them regularly but the ability to steam mop them with a high level of heat on occasion is amazing. The SteamMachine Plus heats up to 205 degree F steam and kills 99.9 percent of germs and bacteria including e-coli, salmonella, and staph. It also has a run time of 20 minutes. One of the best advantages of the machine over competitors is that it heats up in under 30 seconds. I don’t have a lot of time so this feature is perfect.
Once the windows are cleaned each spring, we always wash or dry clean the drapery. Of course, drapery never looks great once it’s been washed so steaming or ironing is necessary. This machine steams drapery in seconds. The power of the steamer on this machine is like none other. We also have drapery in our dining room that doesn’t wash well so I tried steam cleaning it with this machine and the dust vanished. I was pleased to save that drying bill! ha
Many of you know we have a white sectional in our family room. I know, it’s a daring move when you have kids and two dogs but I refuse to live without something I love because of kids or dogs. Things can be cleaned and I am fine with that. I love our family room and it’s the most lived in room in our house, besides the kitchen. The dogs are constantly rubbing up against the couch and parts of it, especially along the skirt area where they lay, has turned brown. The covers are washable so I decided to give the SteamMachine Plus a try in an effort to remove the dog stains on the couch.
I used one of the scrubbers as well as the drapery steam attachment. The scrubber worked great for the piping and gross dried up drool marks.
*TIP: try a small portion of the fabric (a part that isn’t seen) first to ensure the heat level of the steam doesn’t destroy or discolor the fabric*
Can I just tell you, this machine removed most of the stains. This is HUGE for us because washing the covers on the couch is a lengthy process and to have the ability to quickly remove stains is a benefit that I love! Everyone loves the chaise portion of the couch so I decided to try steaming the entire chaise in order to freshen it up and remove any dust/dirt that was on the surface. It worked like a charm! I am thrilled with this machine and can’t thank HomeRight enough for sending us one. It definitely makes Spring cleaning a little more fun ;).
