Thanks, Snafu!

July 30th, 2016 at 05:49 am

A few months earlier I posted about fixing all the broken things and cleaning all the dirty things around the house. I complained that I just could not get grout clean in my bathrooms and Snafu suggested an inexpensive handheld steam cleaner.

After watching some youtube videos, I finally bought one and it arrived yesterday. Oh my gosh. I wish I'd known about these years ago!! The dirt just flew off the grout. It isn't perfect, but it's the best and cleanest and whitest it's ever been. And all using just water and no chemicals.

Thanks Snafu! I'm addicted to the steam cleaner now!

(PS It was a Bissell Steam Shot.)

    How funny! I just got a Hoover 2 in 1 steam mop/handheld this week and tried out the handheld this morning. I spent a couple hours working on the bathroom and I am BEAT! I love what it has done so far, that's for sure.

    Hope you'll try steamer for other tasks [faucets, stove knobs, W/D knobs & crevices, door knobs, commode, baseboards, upholstered chairs/sofa, wrinkled drapery, clothes, mattress, luggage interior after a flight, window and door tracks, outdoor furniture,BBQ grill, kill weeds]. I clean windows but it takes care not to hurt fingers and not in winter when glass is cold..

    I've smeared didn't like, cheap, on sale toothpaste on grout to help whiten.

    Agree with Rob! I think she should start an "Ask snafu" column.

    Hmm, i don't know...i ordered a hand held steam cleaner about a year ago from a TV shopping channel and tried it out around the kitchen and didn't feel it did that much. i hadn't thought about grout but i do have some pretty icky grout.

    It might depend on how gross your grout is. We have lots of boys running through the house, so they track in a lot of dirt. It's been great for the grout and cleaning the crud off the bottom inside track of the shower door.

    I haven't tried it for other things, yet. It might just be my go-to for tub and shower!

    Thanks for the tip!

    It did a nice job shining up the chrome knobs in the shower, too.

    That's so cool; we may have to get one!

    Say, I was thinking of you yesterday. There's a publishing house that does children's nonfiction books that commissions them from freelancers. AS did one. Pay's not huge; $500 for a 2000-word book. But I thought it hit the sweet spot between journalism and YA fiction! It's called Red Line.
