I'm a little pressed for time this weekend. We have friends coming over in less than two hours to watch the Eagles game with us and I'm trying to clean the house before they get here. Not so much for them but for the inter-agency meeting that I'm hosting here on Tuesday to try and get the insurance company to keep Noah's TSS. More on that in another post.
I should have taken a picture of the can of cocoa powder that Noah spilled all over the kitchen and on his school backpack (yeah, I don't know why it was in the middle of the kitchen floor either). But I was frustrated enough that all I was focused on was cleaning it up. Smelled good though.
So, in my cleaning frenzy I thought maybe for my show and tell this week I'd show my two new favorite cleaning tools. The Shark Steam Mop and the Scunci Steamer. I'm trying to go a bit greener in our house and this certainly helps, not having to use any cleaning solutions with them, just good ol' steam. Add in a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and your trusty vacuum and you're set. Except for the toilets. I still use toilet cleaner in them. If you have any green solutions for that let me know!
So, I've had the Scunci Steamer for a while, but wasn't using it. That was a mistake, because the last time I used it I used tap water, then it sat for a LONG time. Something froze in the steam release mechanism and despite my best efforts I couldn't fix it. So I bought a new one recently and I'm using distilled water in it. It's fun to use! But do be careful cause steam is hot! I know...like duh! Just ask the burn mark on my stomach. Yeah, I'm not sure how either.
Now, we first saw the Shark Steam Mop on an infomercial on TV. Noah has been coveting it, along with the Pancake Puff Pan, for a while. So, one day in a moment of weakness I actually sat and watched the infomercial with him. And damn if I didn't start to covet it myself. And since I control the credit card, well I popped online and ordered it. And when it came there was much excitement in the House of Therapy as we tried it out.
And damn it all, it really works! It's easy to use, quick, no messing with buckets or cleaning solutions, light weight and blah blah blah. The only issue I have with it is that it is almost too light weight, it feels kind of flimsy. But, it works and that makes this Mommy happy.
So, a little PSA for y'all and a kinda lame show and tell for the week, which is really more of a tell since I can't be assed to take pictures and post them right now.
Oh yeah, I'm not getting any kind of kick back for reviewing these, just doing it out of the goodness of my anything that makes cleaning easier heart. But, if the Shark people would like to send me some more pads I'd be more than happy to accept!
