Steam cleaning machines are wonderful. They clean without harsh chemicals. They deodorize and sanitize. I love my steam cleaner to get that dirt and junk out of little crevices of appliances or the toilet seat hinges. It goes seamlessly from one room to the next. My kitchen floors no longer have that sticky feeling after moping and have never been cleaner. They are so clean you could eat off of them. My fridge is sparkling inside. My curtains are all wrinkle free and my car smells fresh again. I can not say enough about how great steam cleaners are. They do not do everything however. Don't have unrealistic expectations. When you clean something with a steam cleaner the dirt doesn't magically disappear. The steam knocks it loose and then you have to wipe it up with a cloth. Old stuck on stains likely wont be removed with the steam either. If you don't have one already I would highly recommend getting a great steam cleaner like a Steam Buggy or a Stanley Steamer. Don't bother with those small Shark cleaners. They don't hold enough steam to really get anything done. Did I mention you can sanitize your toothbrushes too? You can sanitize anything that can hold up to the heat. Baby toys, sinks, upholstery, bath poufs. You can clean jewelry and door knobs or mirrors and table tops.
If you have allergy's a steam cleaner is a must. The steam kills dust mites. You can use it on your pillows, mattresses, carpets and curtains. Killing mites and freshening the fabric. For a really healthy home get a steam cleaner! The McCullough and SteamFast have great ratings on Amazon and I love my Steam Buggy. Get one that will replace multiple cleaning implements in your house like the McCullough and Steamfast. So you will need a upholstery/floor brush with the cloth moping cover, and a steam jet nozzle at least. Most come standard with these accessories.
