I am so excited to introduce to you all the new flagship in the HomeRight SteamMachine line, the SteamMachine Elite! We get to give away one of these fantastic machines to one lucky reader too, so be sure to read to the end to enter.
I know it is almost Christmas, and most of you are thinking along the lines of gifts that sparkle and shine this holiday season (OK, I get that!) but tuck this amazing machine away and remember that at this time of year, all the fun and festivity (and cooking and guests etc.) can create a pretty big mess.
We all have to clean up at some point and this machine makes it so much easier. Not only does it make fast work of pretty much every cleaning job, but it does it without harsh chemicals or toxic fumes. I am a fanatic about keeping our house a toxin-free as possible, which is another reason I love cleaning with my SteamMachine.
As soon as my the SteamMachine Elite arrived, I opened it up so I could try it out. It takes water (or preferably distilled water) that heats up in about 8 minutes to a whopping 290 degrees. That high heat will kill almost any germ that is lurking in your home, which is a great thing as we head into the peak of cold and flu season (AKA winter!).
I started by cleaning in my bathroom, which always seems to be in need of attention. The SteamMachine Elite comes with 19 accessories (and a bag/system to store them, I’ll show you that in a minute). I had my bathroom sparkling in no time, between the squeegee attachment that removed the build-up on our shower doors, the floor mop which cleaned the floor in literally a minute or two (and dries almost instantly thanks to the high-temp steam), and the attachments that make quick work of the counters and around the toilet, my bathroom was cleaned lightning fast. It literally could not be easier!
Since that chore took so much less time than usual, I looked for some other things I could use the SteamMachine Elite on. My new living room curtains came right to mind. I’d hung them last week but hadn’t had time to iron the wrinkles out of them so I switched over to the steamer attachment and just ran it over each panel while it was still hanging on the rod. This was much easier than taking them down to iron them!
Within minutes they looked so much better. We’ll be having Christmas Eve dinner in here next week so I needed to put the final touches on our dining room. I was able to quickly knock this chore off the to-do list while the machine was heated up and ready to go.
Next up was my kitchen, which is basically an ongoing project to keep clean. My stove was just cleaned (professionally no less) just three days earlier but it already had acquired its usual patina of dirt and food build up.
We cook quite a bit around here and things often get baked on and are hard to remove, especially on the grates that go over the burners. The grates are large and bulky so I procrastinate cleaning them, but the SteamMachine made it simple to do. I sprayed them while they were still on the stove to blast off all the built up food, then moved them aside so I could clean the area underneath.
What I love about using the SteamMachine is that even baked on dirt comes right off. After blasting everything on the surface with the hot steam, I wiped it all down with the microfiber cloth (that came with the machine) to polish it up.
Next, I gave my sink a quick blast with hot steam to kill all the bacteria that builds up in it, and that left it nice and shiny and clean. You can do the same with your counters, and it also quickly cleans floors (it works on sealed hardwood, vinyl, and tile). We all know mopping a floor is a chore in itself!
Once I finished cleaning the kitchen, I stored the SteamMachine Elite away in our hallway cleaning closet (which don’t judge yet, this space needs some organizational attention but that won’t happen until after the holidays), and then I hung the storage bag up on the bag of the closet door so I could keep all the attachments close at hand.
