Let me be the first to say that I am not a great house cleaner.
If you’ve been around here long enough, I’m sure you could have easily guessed that one.
Its not that I’m a bad house house cleaner, its just that I don’t do it often enough.
We don’t have week old food laying out on the kitchen counter or anything, but most days its questionable as to what the sticky substance on the countertop might be.
I’m just keeping it real, y’all.
However, when I do get around to cleaning – like I did yesterday so that I could take photos for an upcoming house tour that didn’t include gross sticky unknown substances – I clean my kitchen with one single thing. I call it my little mouse.
I realize the irony in me calling my cleaning tool a little mouse.
But its a good little mouse…
Its also known as the HomeRight Steam Machine.
Doesn’t it slightly resemble a mouse?
Ok, its just me and my weird imagination.
Anyway, I use this bad boy to clean my entire kitchen.
This time around, I started with some grout cleaning…and removing blue paint apparently…
I just attach the nylon brush to the steam gun and fire away while scrubbing.
I also had some dried white paint lurking on the countertops from a recent kitchen makeover…
I shot it with the steam and then used a scraper to peel it right off.
I steam cleaned my sink as well.
With the sink, as I steam, I come behind with a sponge, wiping away the dirt and grime.
It comes off like buttah’.
I use it on all my appliances…
Give the appliance a shot of steam, quickly followed by a wipe down with a towel. I do the same thing on my kitchen faucet.
And shockingly – the steam machine can also tackle my stove…which is a whole other ballgame.
I clean it the same as the stainless steel on the other appliances – steam, wipe, repeat as needed. If needed, I use a scraper to remove stuck on stuff.
Do you use a steam machine for cleaning?
