{Giveway #2} The Stream Machine from HomeRight! $100.00 Value

THE STEAM MACHINE!  From HomeRight 


There is this wonderful product from HomeRight called the SteamMachine.  It sure makes housework a lot easier and housecleaning safer because it uses only water - no harsh chemicals.  Not like we did this past weekend with chlorine and alcohol fumes.   

It's more thorough because the attachments let you get anywhere, and more fun - I mean who doesn't like to see dirt disappear? I know I do.   There are a lot of different type of attachments to get anywhere...
The SteamMachine is lightweight and has a big, sturdy fold-down handle that allows you to easily move it from room to room. It also has smooth-rolling wheels, so if you're using the attachment for cleaning the floor, it'll move right along with you. The other thing I love is it holds lots of water - so that you get more steam rather than having to refill all the time with a smaller canister.

There are a number of attachments including a brass brush (for things like the oven), a squeegee (for things like the shower, counter tops, or windows), and a jet nozzle (for like getting the grout clean).

Now one of the best features is that It also has a flat attachment that allows you to easily loosen up the wallpaper and peel it off (no more fighting to get old wallpaper off of your walls!).  I would love to take my wall paper down!!!!!!!!!!

This machine is FANTASTIC!  
The SteamMachine is easy to use, simply fill the cup up with distilled water (the cup and a funnel are provided), screw on the cap (do not unscrew it until the  machine has completely cooled off), and turn on the switch. It takes about 10  minutes to get the steam built up. A light turns on and you're ready to go.

You can sanitize stove tops  ovens, bathrooms and grills. The SteamMachine leaves behind no chemical residue and kills 99% of all germs and bacteria.  Cool - right?  And what about those barbecue grills.  Your husband might help you start to clean!

Now remember I was telling you about cleaning my kitchen floor?  This is what it looked like.  Those darn little groves had ground in dirt. I washed with a Hoover Hard Floor machine.  I used Spic and Span and Mr. Clean.  I used bleach and water.  I thought I had poisoned myself.  Then 90% alcohol.  Now that was 5 days of cleaning.  I have to admit the floor was pretty clean.  But not perfect.  


BEFORE



BEFORE

Then I had an 'ah ha' moment - I had used this steamer for everything else in the house - why didn't I use it on the floor - dah!!!!!   And then guess what - my floor is perfect!!!!!!!!!!!
You can come eat on my floor!

AFTER!
Isn't it beautiful?????????


Now there is only ONE thing wrong with this product.  Once you see how clean it makes things - you see how dirty the rest of the house is.  It makes everything else look dirty.  Now I have more to clean!!

You really need to check this quality company out!   (Disclosure: I received a product to help facilitate the review. No other form of compensation took place. All opinions stated are my own.)

Now I have some good, no GREAT news!!!  The company has offered me a chance to have a giveaway for this fantastic stream cleaner - a $100 value.

You have two chances to win.
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Now this is the first time I have used Rafflecopter - so if I make a mistake I will change it in the morning.  This contest  will go for one week - ending on the 17th.
