"I do my best to do chemical-free cleaning due to lung disease," wrote a delighted cleaner. "This is a great new tool to my arsenal of cleaning tools. I rely on a steam mop for the floor. For everything else this baby gets the job done!! Including getting up black paint my 15-year-old dropped on white grout."

"I am impressed!" a happy truck owner wrote. I bought an old pickup from a carpet guy who used foam rubber padding as floor mats for the carpet and used Velcro to hold it down. While the Velcro didn’t stick to the mats, it sure stuck to the carpet, and it would not come up without nearly ripping the carpet! Ten seconds of steam and each strip came up effortlessly with minimal residue! Well, the steamer made quick work of the residue as well! As well as lots of places around the truck that were GROSS! When you have a work truck with 295k miles, things get greasy! This cleaned it up like a new penny!"
Another satisfied customer claims it's 'magic' and wrote: "I have been using this all over the house and I can't believe how well it works. I've cleaned up sticky residue on the floor, steamed the grease out of the cracks of my stove, cleaned the icky corners under my kitchen cabinets, and lots more! I'm very impressed. I think I'll be using this for years to come."
This steam cleaner can clean things you didn't know could look new again. One shopper went to town on her house.
"It removed stuff I have not been able to get clean," an excited shopper shared. "I cleaned the burned-on crud in my oven and under the burner pans on my stove where something spilled and nobody cleaned it up. It cleans small areas like the window tracking, the edges of the washing machine lid, around dishwasher areas that are tough to clean....I cleaned the inside of the dishwasher with steam and a microfiber cloth, no harsh chemicals."

Shutterstock“Stagflation” is an ugly word for an ugly situation – the unpleasant combination of economic stagnation and inflation.
