Oooh Ive been thunking about investing in one too...bathroom in new house is tiled top to bottom, dont fancy spray n wipe all the time!

OMG, that looks amazing. Did your curtains look cleaner afterwards, or just smell fresher? Mine are cream and getting a bit grubby - if this means I don't have to unhook them and take them to the cleaner's I'm in!

No buy direct from Thane

Oooh thought I might treat my self to one til I looked on Amazon and the reviews were awful - glad you are pleased with yours.

I have loads to steam at my sisters, but not sure if my steamer can tackle it... She has orange mould on her bath files an steam didn't shift it confused

OnlyWantsOne Wed 09-Jan-13 17:42:03

Oooooo I want one

Will it get dried rock hard weatabix off the table?

BettyBum Wed 09-Jan-13 17:21:32

Thanks! I just used the steam blast on its own with no wire attachment for the limescale and it worked well.

Keep looking round for things to steam grin

Worked brilliantly on highchair

shock wire brush on brass will tear the lacquer off and scratch the brass. hrome is much more hard wearing but I still wouldn't use wire brush.

I BLASTED a thick layer of lime scale off my taps using the wire brush attachment. I love it, I have an X5 mop too.

And I'm a reet slattern.

Betty talk away.. i'd love one, even better as a gift.. enjoy!

BettyBum Tue 08-Jan-13 21:44:52

My mum. I asked for it. It's expensive, I couldn't justify it for myself.

God I just wanted to talk about my mop...

hmm

IncognitoIsMyFavouriteWord Tue 08-Jan-13 21:30:45

I don't doubt it is good but a gift hmm

Booyhoo Tue 08-Jan-13 21:22:46

<wails> i want one!!!

BettyBum Tue 08-Jan-13 21:17:16

Booyhoo oh yes it is indeed! So impressed that it did everything I thought it would!

Easy to use
Light
Powerful
Smells lush
Actually cleans
No horrible cleaning agents
Fun fun fun lol...

BettyBum Tue 08-Jan-13 21:13:14

Chopping board even hmm

BettyBum Tue 08-Jan-13 21:12:48

Just to clear up a couple of things...

My MUM bought me the mop, not my DP, got make up, a book and boots off him grin

Anyway, the mop is fab, didn't do the wooden shopping board to look better, I just thought it was prob a bit of a breeding ground and the mop sanitizes. Yes it comes with different attachments, you can do anything really. What I love is that it makes cleaning really fun! And I HATE cleaning...

LibraryMum8 Tue 08-Jan-13 02:43:00

Awesome about your mop! My dh got me a robotic Hoover a few years ago...it's the best thing he ever bought me, and that includes an iPad! Enjoy!

Booyhoo Tue 08-Jan-13 01:25:12

is it everything they say it is?

WifeofPie Tue 08-Jan-13 01:22:54

Or grin.

WifeofPie Tue 08-Jan-13 01:22:33

Yup [Grin]. Beemer.

I suppose you could live in one...

bemybebe Tue 08-Jan-13 01:19:05

I bumped into my dh the day before my b'day in the local shopping centre. He was carrying a food processor. I told him (with a sweet smile) that if he returned it "NOW", I would never mention this. ever. He did return it. ;)

I also thought it was a BMW :D . Thought "what does a car do in 'housekeeping'". Doh!
