Please, I know it's very dull, but talk to me about steam mops.
We are currently a four hound household and are likely to be so until at least next spring. I keep hearing things about steam mops and am wondering if they might help with house cleaning over the winter months (though with the monsoon summer, it might have been useful then too). Any other dog owners with experience (good or bad) with them?
Downstairs, we have laminate in hall, loo, dining and living room, floor tiles in utility and kitchen, upstairs is carpet (except bathrooms). Downstairs is the bit that gets really filthy.
I lurve my steam mop it gets rid of doggy and children prints in a jiffy. My mum just got one she was so impressed with mine. Just make sure you get one with spare cloth so you have a spare whilst one is in the washing machine
No advice, but am hoping to hear good things about steam mops.
My kitchen and utility room vinyl have gone several shades darker since ToomuchDog arrived!! And though I mop regularly it doesn't seem to help the ingrained mud. The thought of getting down on my stiff knees with a scrubbing brush and bottle of Cif doesn't appeal, esp if it only lasts a few days.
Well, ideally if it was a James Bond steam mop, it would also have a laser and a big red counting down number thing on the top, so JB could swing by and say "If we don't cut the yellow wire in 10 seconds, the auxiliary steam valve will set off a chain reaction and all of S Wales will be deluged in an enormous cloud of greyhound hair". I quite like the idea of a domestic appliance with lasers and possibly a missile launcher. I also quite like the idea of Daniel Craig in my kitchen but that's another matter
