why? Well dh and I managed to get some more jobs done in the basement, which was good. My goal is to have the basement completely finished by Christmas......now whether that happens remains to be seen, as I can see it costing another $1,000 to finish.
Also another reason was that as dh pointed out, my new cleaning tool is working a charm. On Saturday I purchased this steam cleaner:
As part of the package I got the mini cleaner and a pack of three pads for free:
I am really pleased with how they work. They clean using water and steam, so no chemicals which is a good thing. The large machine I used to clean floors and carpets, that's what the green thing is on the first photo, you attach that when you want to clean the carpets. I also took off the handle and used the large machine to clean the shower.
The smaller machine I used in the bathroom, in the shower to clean in places where the big machine wouldn't go. Mind you with all that steam I also gave myself a facial as well!!! Will say that smaller machine is not for the faint of heart, as you have to be careful with it, as that steam is hot. I will be keeping the smaller machine in my bathroom, and the larger one downstairs to be used mainly on the floors and rugs.
Now I have to say I was in two minds about posting these next two photos, as it looks as though I never clean and live in a pig sty. However on the plus side, it does show you these steam cleaners do work.
The first photo shows the pad after I had cleaned the downstairs floors and a couple of rugs:
Now if you thought that was bad, this one was after I had cleaned the shower, the upstairs floors and the stairs:
I'm telling you I was shocked as well. I am going to steam the fireplace stones and see what happens there, as that is no doubt filthy as well.
Anyhow, what I do know is that the machine does do its job and I am happy with it so far.
