If we’re being honest, and since I’m always honest with you, my house is not clean right now.
Its not clean at all.
May is a whirlwind of events for us and cleaning is not one of those events that tends to take place during the month.
Until there is a mad dash next Friday to clean right before the kid’s birthday party so that our guests don’t turn and run screaming out the door…
I can hear the circus talking to her therapist in ten years, “Everyone showed up for my birthday party that year, but then made a beeline for the door when they saw dust an inch thick and dried crusty milk on the floor. They took all their presents with them. I’ve never been the same since.”
Therapy is going to cost me a fortune.
So next week, to hopefully cut down on therapy costs, these are my best cleaning tips that I will actually do…well at least everywhere that guests will be… 😉

Indoor and Outdoor Cleaning Tips
First off, let’s de-clutter.
Shockingly, I did this last night when I found out the in-laws were coming down for the night. Lord knows, I can’t let them sleep on a bed where they may or may not end up being poked by plastic horses and measuring tapes – both of which were all over the guest bed last night. This de-cluttering printable covers every room, closet, nook and cranny.
I should probably work on the bathrooms next…
I finally did take out the overflowing trash can in my bathroom last night. Once more, because my in-laws are coming down. Thanks for helping me get my butt in gear, Mama and Dad. I will be doing some deep cleaning in the showers though with my HomeRight Steam Machine. Honestly, never in a million years did I think I would love something that cleans so much. I guess age does that to you. Or maybe its the fact that it cuts down on so much time that I can have that cheap beer sooner? 😉
Of course, the kitchen is gross too…and has a variety of craft items all over the counters that are supposed to be making some party decorations for the kid’s party. Still working on that one.
I also use my steam machine to clean my entire kitchen. Yep. The whole room. Counters, backsplash, sink, stove, refrigerator, all the stainless steel. You name it. I clean it with my steamer. See why I like it so much?
My favorite thing to do, ok wait its not my favorite because it involves dog accidents, but maybe the best thing about my steam machine plus, is that it can easily clean up pet stains and odors.
I am not a dog person. Go ahead. Throw the tomatoes at me. Sorry, y’all, they just aren’t my cup of tea. The thought of cuddling up with a furry creature is just gross to me. Alas, Grunt Labor and the circus adore the dogs, therefore I tolerate them. Ok, they are just a tad bit cute. Just a tad though. Their accidents are not cute. At all. Here’s how I clean up their stains and odors easily – yep, even on carpets.
I steam clean just about every floor in my house actually.
And trust me, never in a million years did I think I would be cleaning chemical-free. I grew up in the country where old ladies load their Cadillacs down with ammonia every spring for cleaning. I had fully intended on being one of those old ladies. The Cadillac will definitely happen – the ammonia, not so much.
That being said, I do still use store-bought cleaners for some things.
I am also a fan of using my magic eraser on a lot of things around the house.
One of those things being to clean my hardware. Its much cheaper than replacing it.
I also use a spray to protect my upholstery from stains and to waterproof it.
See, I’m not 100% hippie.
I literally just laughed out loud at the thought of even being considered a hippie.
And since the birthday entourage will obviously see the outside of my house, I’d better make that look a little more presentable too..
There will be some cleaning of concrete landscaping blocks.
And the sidewalk could use a quick little cleaning refresh…
Yea, I just cringed too at that before picture. I still have no idea what was growing on the sidewalk before I cleaned it.
If you’ve got rust on anything, I’ve got a killer way to remove it.
I thought this little cookie jar was way past it’s prime, until I figured out how to clean copper!
I love vintage brass, but I despise cleaning it up! Here’s the easiest way I’ve found to clean it.
What are your best cleaning tips?
Do any of you have a magic genie in a bottle that can just do all the cleaning, the party decorations and make all the food for me before next Saturday?

I think the dirtiest place would be the floor on my enclosed porch. Would love to win the steam machine! thanks for the great giveaway.
teresa sulyok says
I would start with the fridge inside then the rest of the kitchen, then head to the bathroom.
We are upgrading floors and cabinets. This would be so great to keep them looking new!
If only I had a kitchen to clean… Oh wait, I can clean the den that is our makeshift kitchen during the renovation. Gotta love demolition with a newborn!
Rebecca C says
The tile floors in our kitchen. No matter what I have tried, I cannot get the grout back to the same color as it is in the dining room (with the same floors). Hopefully this would work, and if not, I could at least get it super clean before sealing them with a different better colored grout.
I would clean my bathrooms with this. You almost have me convinced to buy one.
Kaye Newman says
I would clean my kitchen and dining room tiles. This gadget sounds amazing!
Rachel R says
The dirtiest place in my house is my claw foot tub. I scrub and scrub, but the tub has seen so many years of use that it never seems clean.
Nicollette Nettles says
The bathtub for sure! I just got a brand new tub and I NEED it to stay sparkly and new 🙂
I’ll use it to clean the kitchen.
Hope Williams says
You are too funny! I have the BEST, ALL TIME, MOST SUCCESSFUL cleaning tip E.V.E.R.!!!
Molly Maids! Yep, that’s it! Let someone else do it!
My views are that someone needs the work. Friends know someone who has a cleaning girl. If said cleaning girl doesn’t have the time, she knows another cleaning girl who does! Yep, keepin it local!
Jenna @ Rain on a Tin Roof says
Oh Hope, Molly Maids sounds DIVINE!
Nancy K. says
Oh, the bathroom, without a doubt. Thanks for arranging this giveaway, Jenna.
I absolutely adore your blog and was glad to use this opportunity to find you at all my other favorite hangouts, too (Instagram, FB, etc.). We just got a 6 month old puppy. They tell us he’s a Staffordshire Terrier, but whatever he is, he’s a total love. I’d use the HomeRight Steam Machine to help us with our little….potty training accidents. As well as our original (somewhat gross) 1940’s bathrooms. Keep doing what you’re doing, girlfriend! 😀 ~Ash
Elaine B says
I would definitely use it in my bathroom!
Susan the farm quilter says
My husband’s shower in the basement…I NEVER go down there and clean it, that’s up to him!!!
I would use the steam cleaner in my entire house. I am a dog person, but like you, I hate it when they leave me little “presents”.
I think it would make kitchen and bathroom cleaning a breeze!
I would clean the kitchen tile.
I would absolutely clean everything with the HomeRight steam cleaner! How did I not know about this product until now? I have been working waaaay to hard at cleaning my house.
Stephanie C. says
My boys’ bathroom needs a major overhaul with the steam machine!!! I knew boys were messy and dirty little creatures, but holy cow Batman! I need a maid or this machine!

The dirtiest place inside my house is inside the oven. The dirtiest place outside my house would the back patio steps. I would love to win this!
Carolyn ericson says
I am hoping the steam machine will clean my shower as well as it did yours.
The tile in my bathroom could really use a steam cleaning!
A steam cleaner is my dream weapon of choice when it comes to slaying the everyday cleaning duties. I’ve never owned one, but they seem ideal, given that they disenfect and clean with something as simple as vaporized water. With little kids and a husband fighting allergies, well, I doubt there’s a better solution. In my mind, there is a slow motion loop of my hair blowing as I emerge, wand in hand, from a fog of steam. Hey, a mom’s gotta have dreams.
Darla Bunyan says
My kids bathroom- it scares me a little!
Tiffany Banks says
My bathroom floor!!
christina e hicks says
since i’ve been unwell, my house is dirty,i can manage dusting,running my ROSEY THE ROOMBA,my Godsend!,and the dish washer,my husband!..but a deepclean is really needed!thankyou sweetie,love your honesty and site!!!!
I would use this under and behind my sinks.
barb macaskill says
Definitely the bathroom! Why can’t men hit the water instead of pissing on the outside of the bowl and the seat? I can never understand how that happens. They just need to point and shoot but can’t seem to manage it!! UGH!! WORST! JOB! EVER!! Just sayin’!
Jenna @ Rain on a Tin Roof says
Preach on, sister!
barb macaskill says
Forgot to add that I would love to win this awesome machine to clean EVERYTHING but said bathroom would be the first one to get tackled! I read your almost every day but don’t comment often!! I need to get better about that because I know it is nice to get feedback and to see who is stopping by! Thanks for all the great tips that you share!
Jamie Lynn says
the kitchen sink!! it gets stopped up all the time and gets all grossy.
Bathroom tile and shower could definitely use this!

The floor in the dogs’ room is pretty bad.

I need this machine for every room in our house! lol My bathtub definitely needs it…the previous owners cleaned it with harsh abrasives and now it’s a nightmare to maintain cleanliness in there.
Athena S says
The dirtiest place is My Kitchen adn my bathroom
I would start in the kitchen and move though the house, with the Steam Machine.
Jodi Hoppe Wresh says
my bathtub and kitchen floors need it the most! thanks for the chance!
Jen, I adore dogs but it would be very difficult for me to clean up after them. My boy is the absolute best I’ve ever had…never does anything inside. He will let you know if he needs to go out and I’m so grateful!
This apt has a fiberglass tub and so far, I haven’t found anything that will leave it clean for a few days. Drives me crazy!! Would love to steam clean it as well as the hardwood floors.
Thanks so much for the opportunity!! I’m probably the only person that doesn’t use IG or Twitter so I missed out on those entries. :/
My bathroom and my kitchen floor could use a steam cleaning. I love your site always so many great ideas. Thanks for the giveaway.
I would love to use this in our living room. It gets the most traffic.

The bathroom floor especially between the toilet and the bathtub. I swear it’s permanently discolored. Ugh! So gross!

I would use this thing everywhere… not sure what the “dirtiest” place is but the one that gets dirty often is my oven.
Patrycja Chudziak says
I would steam clean my bathroom first and then the ENTIRE HOUSE lol!
Elizabeth Ray says
kitchen floor – linoleum. Yuck.
mary ballerin says
After trying everything under the sun to clean my hard water-stained fiberglass shower (eek, yes) enclosure, the only elbow grease-free solution I found was Easy-Off oven cleaner. I do not like using chemicals but there was no other way. Winning your favorite machine, the HomeRight steam cleaner, would do away with the oven cleaner and I would almost be a hippie – I’m about old enough to qualify.
Kristi C says
The bathrooms need the most cleaning in my house.
jose benavides says
The dirtiest place is the kitchen .
my Kitchen and Bathroom floors

Definitely the bathrooms!
Alexandra robertson says
Oh my gosh this is exactly what I have been dreaming about. We have a coucg that has barely survived a newborn baby who loved to spit up reflux style breastmilk all the time so our couch is in need of some serious cleaning love. Dying to win this!
Alex Jennings says
I would love to find a solution to my dirty carpets. They’re infested with dog and cat hair. I hope my guests don’t look too closely! I think it’s time to hire a professional cleaning team.
Alex Jennings |
Donna Danna says
Bathroom and kitchen for sure! Like to get that machine into the basement and storage room to freshen them up. Maybe use some essential oil in the steam.
Most definitely both of the showers. Let’s just say they’re needing a lot of help. Oh, yeah, and the toilet and tile around it that my little boy uses!!!
I would use it to clean my bathrooms. My shower needs a lot of cleaning!
Charlotte Padgett says
We could certainly use this all over the house, but especially in the shower.

Nancy Krueger says
The kitchen floor, where you want it to be clean to protect the family, is one of the most hard to clean areas in my home. I try but it is a daily challenge!
Probably the carpets in the high traffic areas. No matter how much you vacuum- they never really seem to get completely clean or stay clean for that long.
I would use this on our pet stained carpets.

angela bauer says
I would clean anything and every thing that I can with this

I have an upright steam machine that I do my tile floors with and just love it. No chemicals and no nasty smells. I would so LOVE to have one of these so I could do more places in and around my house.
Heather B. says
Other than my floors, shower and cabinets. Though… now that I think about it, this would be amazing in the kitchen.. especially on that greasy gross stove vent.
Dawn Monroe says
I would start on our sliding glass door tracks and back porch. The tracks are nasty and for some reason my back steps seem to be the grave yard for june bugs this year. Everyday I go out there are dead bugs everywhere. Yuk!
I would absolutely love to win this prize. My list of things to clean is endless buit I would start in the bathrooms!
My daughter has been telling a steam machine like this is what I need. It looks like it does an amazing job on many things!

Jessica Girginis says
I would definitely use it for my rugs since we recently got a new puppy and obviously puppies have a Lot of accidents while potty training!!
Kimberly M. says
The dirtiest place in my house is the kitchen. It gets all the traffic. Everyone comes in the house from the kitchen and that is where most of the gathering is done except for relaxing time.
Pam OK says
I would use it on my hardwood floors. Hardwood covers all but bathroom and kitchen in our house and I would love to get it deep cleaned so I can shine it up again.
paige chandler says
My bathroom sinks and tub,,,UGH…YUCK

Ashley P says
My bathroom is the dirtiest place where this would be used.
I would use it in my bedroom,cream carpet is hard to keep clean.
cheryl w says
I’d like to use it in my bathroom, but it looks like it would be good in so many places.
oh i think the carpet in our family room gets the dirtiest since we have small kids snacking all the time.
Tammy Evans says
Some people say their kitchen floor is so clean they could eat off it, well not mine, it is probably the dirtiest place in my house. No 5 second rule here, if it falls on the floor even the dog doesn’t want to eat it.
KELLY P says
I would love to win this cleaner because I have 4 of the messiest kids on earth. I clean with castile soap and vinegar mostly, but dragging the mop out constantly to clean the floors is driving me mad. I recently got diagnosed with RA and my hands aren’t working like they used too. This machine would ease the constant worry that my floors and bathrooms aren’t very clean because of my illness. I so hope I win this, love your blog!!!
Hargow Wong says

I could really use the machine on my bathroom tile.
Peter G says
Coming from the kitchen to the living room, the area gets stained from tracking grease or food onto the rug.
Linda G. says
I would love to use this in my family room first, but I could use it through my whole house.
Richard DeCicco says
Definitely for the Kitchen and basement
Julie Lynn Bickham says
My kitchen could use a deep cleaning. This could help big time.
David Smith says
The dirtiest place is definitely the tracks our slider windows move on. They are always getting full of mold and other nasties and a steam cleaner would be ideal for getting this area clean.
Claudia Smigel says
Thank you for the chance to enter.I am renting a very old house and the bathtub is the worst,nothing i use makes the tub look like it has been cleaned HELP!!

Tina W says
The bathtub in my spare bathroom is kinda gross, I’d use it there.
Kathleen Y. Worth says
Our master bath needs this soooo bad. My husband just put a stool in there. Is it really that bad? I can’t seem to get the mold and the rust out of all the cracks and crevices. So I know what I would do the minute I got this kind of machine. First a happy dance, then go to town like nobody’s business on that mold! One of these days we will get one. 🙂
Donna Jacoby says
At the moment, the room that most needs to be steam cleaned is the kitchen. Thank you for the giveaway!
JIll H says
I would use this on the grout between the tiles.
I am very much a dog person 🙂 , & my kitchen/dining/laundry room tile floors are proof of this, unfortunately! My 2 Yorkies have a doggie door, & my white (deaf) Boxer is my lil “Pigpen Princess”. I rescued her when she was 5 weeks old & she’s spoiled absolutely rotten. I think they bring more dust & dirt inside than they leave outside! I love them all dearly…. but I could certainly use the Steam Machine on my tile floors- & so much more! You have the best blog & great giveaways!!
Melissa Douglass says
My kitchen floors! They get the most traffic!
The bathrooms…….oh, my!

Dolores Miranda says

Brandi Davis Bryant says
The dirtiest place in my home is probably under the appliances. Thanks for the giveaway.

Aimee F says
I would say the bathroom floors. I would love to give them a good steam clean.
Kathy E. says
You really want to know the dirtiest place in my home? Well, since you asked, I’d have to say the garage. I force myself to have a garage sale every other year just so I’ll clean it out. Yeah, it takes a full week to get it clean and I hate doing it, but it’s worth it in the end. Then it gets puts on the back burner for 2 more years. Yuck. Double yuck.
I NEED this Steam Machine in my life! I’ve been a SAHM for almost 3 years and my house is a mess. I don’t know whose messier my two kids or my husband. The first place I would clean are the bathrooms. I have a 6 year old boy and husband that often miss the toilet. This Steam Machine sounds like it would be life changing….hope I win!
chris mills says
My kitchen could use a steam cleaning esspecialy around the stove area
Our mud room. It’s full of every kind of grime, including mud.
I would like to use it to clean all the bathrooms. But I see someone else wants to use it around the stove. That’s probably a good idea too :).
My kitchen needs this bad, the floor is a mess!
I would love to use this in my kitchen.
Darlene Carbajal says
Mary Otis says
You could eat off my kitchen floor: cookie characters, cheerios, cracker crumbs, chocolate chips and miscellaneous tidbits
elizabeth p says

I need this miracle in my life. Stat.

I am so so impressed with your before and after I could use this in my garage and bathroom shower stall for sure but mostly on my rocks that look like yours in my front yard they are way worse and I thought we would have to replace them
Samantha Daleo says
The dirtiest room in our house that I would use the steam machine would be the “guest room” which really is just the room that all of the extra stiff gets thrown into and the cat litter box is in.
Julie Spear says
Oh how I long for one of these steam machines… I have been stalking and looking for other blogs that might be giving one away (yes, I have been trying to cheat on your blog, LOL!!) I am a believer in the steam!!! I saw a steam mop in action and it is amazing, so I can just imagine how this whole house steamer would be… AWESOME, I am sure!!! I would use it to clean my kitchen cabinets, so I can paint them and on my bathtub, so I can re-coat that also!!! basically I would steam my whole house from top to bottom. Thanks!!!
Brenda Elsner says
The dirtiest room in my home is the 3 season porch. I would clean that first than go to the bathroom and bedrooms.

Crossing every finger and toe!!! xoxox
I’d use it in an old shower on the tile walls.
I would start in the kids bathroom. I refuse to go in there most days .
james jenkins says
Gotta be the hallway carpeting by our doors where the cats get a little carried away!
Sherry Conrad says
We have a “stuff” room and that is definitely the dirtiest place since we only go in to pile the stuff we aren’t sure what to do with.
Sue Barney says
I would use it in my kitchen and bathroom!
Inside the house, our tired, old, oven would be the first cleaning project for this steam cleaner. Outside the house, suspect that steam cleaner might just find a permanent home in my garage cleaning parts off old cars.
Shakeia Rieux says
I would use it in the kitchen,and the laundry room
amy deeter says
i would have to say the room i would use would be the bathroom
Jennifer Herman says
I would love to have this for my bathroom!
The dirtiest place in my house is the area around the litter box, so it would be the first place I’d use the steamer.
Raina DelRio says
I think the dirtiest room in my house is the room where the dogs kennels are. Up next would be my daughter’s room where the make-up she plays with ends up more on the floor than her face.
Melanie Montgomery says
We would use it forourcarpets.
Brenda Haines says
My living room needs it! With the animals and my toddlers messes, it get hectic up in here! Thanks!

the bathtub. it is my happy place and i want it to be sparkling

PATTY NIEDERT says
my basement shop area is the dirtiest room that would benefit from this steamer.
Amanda Sakovitz says
I would use this on my kitchen floors.
The dirtiest place in our home at the moment would be the living room. It has been getting a lot of traffic lately and a lot of use, especially with a puppy learning to potty train. So, this would be where I would use the Steam Machine first…for sure!
John Herman says
I would pick the bathroom and basement.
Our entire downstairs is tile but I would use it in the kitchen first.

I would steam clean the green stuff off the house siding. Thanks!

I would use the steam machine on my kitchen floor!

Vicki D. says
I would clean our kitchen tiles, especially the grout (or whatever it is) between the tiles. It collects dirt and has turned dark. But, I would use it inside and outside for a lot more than that.
My shower really needs this kind of therapy. We have a shower/tub combo with jets with way too many nooks and crevasses. .
Diane Hacker says
I would start in the kitchen, and follow with the bathrooms!
Sue J. says
My kitchen could probably use this the most!
Jerry Marquardt says
I think that it is most usefule to clean the shower, including the tile and grout.
Buddy Garrett says
I would use it in the basement.
Thomas Murphy says
My stove is dirty and I would use the Steam Machine to clean it.
Charlene Kuser says
The dirtiest room in my house is the family room.It has the most traffic and the dog stays in there too.Everyone also eats snacks in there,lots of mystery stains on my that carpet.
My bathroom gets disgusting.
My kitchen is always the dirtiest and messiest because it sees the most traffic no matter what! This machine would be great for my floor and stove top, not to mention my refrigerator!

My bedroom for sure, I have 5 cats with an unfortunate tendency of puking >.<
That’s the only one of my tips I didn’t follow through on. I loved coming home at the end of a busy day and reconnecting with my parents. My children divided their time between both sets of grandparents, so I got a little break from motherhood as well.
i would just like to know how you actually clean these these things. I would like to clean my brick, but after touching everything I can not find any instructions

Courtney Hampton says
These are really awesome cleaning solutions! I am very impressed! Cleaning the sidewalk is something that I have considered impossible! Thank you for sharing! Really great and useful cleaning ideas! 🙂
Jenna @ Rain on a Tin Roof says
Glad it was helpful, Courtney!
Sandra L Garth says
I have a steam cleaner and have only used it to clean the tile floor in the kitchen. That’s going to change real soon. Thank you for the tips they are right on time.
