Welcome to day 30 of 31 days! I have been a crazy cleaning girl because I have been trying out the HomeRight SteamMachine.
I’m going to show you some things I’ve been trying out -- it steams curtains, fabric! Here are the IKEA ones I am trying out in the bedroom. You know what a pain they are to take down and iron or throw in the dryer,
so I filled up the tank with water, waited a few minutes while it got good and hot. When both lights are on, it is heating up, when the orange one goes off, you are good to go.
Look at that steam coming out when you pull the trigger!
The curtain looked so much better without the wrinkles and creases!
Let’s go into the master bathroom -- this a corner that has not even been cleaned since we moved in. It’s by the closet and it got extra dirty when we were moving things in with mud & boots.
Just a few shots of steam took care of it!
Moving on downstairs to the kids’ bathroom. We obviously need a lesson on scrubbing the tub. Lots of soap scum buildup around the edges and hard water stained fixtures.
Shiny and clean again :)
My last trial: I’m packing up the rug that has been on our front porch but wanted to get the stains off first. My boys love to take otter pops and sit in the rocking chairs so we have lots of rainbow stains.
I found that it works best to hold the steam over the stain for a good 20 seconds, then rub with a cloth. Then repeat 4-5 times or until stain is gone.
I obviously love this machine, but here are a few pointers I wanted to share:
I was about to call the company to say that they had forgotten some parts. But lookie here -- parts inside! Just to save you a good 10 minutes looking around.
The steam is HOT, as it should be to do the job right and to kill 99% of germs and bacteria . Your kids will see you using it and want to try it and that worries me a bit. There is a lock on the handle, but I try to use it when they are not around.
Warning: the first time you hold the trigger, water will spray out! Spray it in the sink or a bucket for a few seconds until the steam starts flowing.
There are a few things it wouldn’t take care of -- like some caked on hard water spots on the tub drain and the purple otter pop stain, but I didn’t work on that very long, I was too excited to try it for other things. :)
Some other things you can try your HomeRight SteamMachine for:
*cleaning grills -- it has a wire brush attachment.
* cleaning and sanitizing counters and floors without any chemicals -- it has long handles and attachments for both.
This is not me..stock picture from HomeRight:
* removing wallpaper! I sooooo wish we had this at our home in Texas -- it has a large plate attachment.
* use to sanitize your mattresses and kill dust mites.
And we’re giving one away today -- in the comments, just tell me the first thing you would use your SteamMachine on!
