The cleaning gene skipped a generation in my family. Cleaning house is not on my list of things I like to do, so when I got excited this weekend about cleaning with Uncommon Blonde’s new SteamFast machine, it was an unprecedented occasion. The fact that I’m blogging about anything related to cleaning house is nothing short of astonishing.
I actually couldn’t wait to see what it would do, so I started with the dirtiest thing I could find; the exhaust vent in the kitchen. I was happy with the minor effort it took to take care of my least-favorite cleaning task so I proceeded to clean all the appliances in the kitchen and then moved to my shower. I appreciate my oversized tile shower until it’s time to clean it. It’s going to take more than one steam cleaning to get it up to par, but I was very pleased with the results of the first “treatment”.
The greatest benefit is that there are NO CHEMICALS when cleaning with this product, just steam! Most effective cleaning product products produce killer fumes (no kidding), so this is a vast improvement and requires very little “elbow grease” as well.
I’m sold. This particular SteamFast unit costs about $100. One review at Amazon states that the Italian (more expensive) units are much more powerful. In my cleaning frenzy I took some paint off the wall by my shower, so I really don’t think I need more power.
Since you wouldn’t use this machine all the time, if my best friend lived nearby (which sadly she doesn’t), I would split the cost and take turns keeping this at my house.You can go on over to Shannon’s Works For Me Wednesday for hundreds of ideas to make you smart & efficient. Sounds exhausting doesn’t it?
