You guys! It is almost SPRING! We are going to be in the 60's all the way up to 70 degrees this week and I am loving it. There is this period of time where it is not time to garden yet, but I am feeling energized and motivated to get something done. I usually put that energy towards a really good spring cleaning for the whole house. Along with scrubbing, I also set aside things to donate and things to sell at a yard sale. It is probably a good thing that I do this because once I start gardening, the inside of my house gets ignored!
I wrote an article over on the HomeRight blog about deep cleaning. I gave a detailed list for each room of your house and I even have a cute FREE printable for you!
Speaking of free, lets giveaway a SteamMachine shall we? I have both versions of the HomeRight steamers and I love them. Today I am going to be giving away this one:

*Sanitizing light switches
*Cleaning the inside of your car

I'd love to use this on my couch to clean the upholstery.
Thanks for sharing this, it's motivated me to clean more thoroughly. I normally "surface clean", the steam cleaning way seems so much easier than the old fashioned way my Mom taught me. :)
This is my husbands dream. I would love to give to him as a gift!
Theres a ton of places this would come in handy! My furniture, the toilets, sinks etc. Neat!!
OH MY! Have long wanted one of these! Sure hope I win - thank you for the chance to win!

Oh would I love this little machine. I read your great article - would love to use this to clean all my dirty, sad grout.
Ooh, I need this in my life! Thank you for the giveaway!
This looks great, thanks!
Our basement recently flooded. This would come in handy in so many areas!! And with four young children, sanitizing never seems to end!!
Oh my!!! The baseboards! Those would definitely be my first job to tackle. The dust they accumulate drives me batty, & it's do difficult to get at.
I would love to win this! Looks like it does a great job! Thanks for the opportunity!
My home is screaming for this machine!
This is the perfect giveaway for the spring cleaning flurry that's about to commence! I've been considering one for a while....hope I win it! :-)
Bookmarked that site~
that would be wonderful for cleaning windows (which I hate to do) and freshen upholstery. Thank you for a chance to win.
ugh, the air vents, we have pets so they always need a good clean. I really need a steam cleaner to help me this year, it sounds like it would make a lot of my tasks easier,
I would love to try one of these steam machines! There's nothing like a fresh, clean house.
Ooooo! I so need one of these! I live in an older home and I need something to get in the corners and clean the glass doors on the shower and the Kitchen linoleum could definitely use a good cleaning!
Toilets, toilets, toilets and boys. always need to clean up around the toilet.
OMG, I'd love to use this, my house needs it. Praying you pick ME...
What a great article on cleaning! Once I saw that this machine cleans toilets I started drooling! That alone is reason enough to make this a must have item! I DETEST cleaning toilets! Give me vomit, diarrhea, doggy poop and any other disgusting mess but DON"T make me clean the toilet! Nastiest job on earth in my opinion! I have never been able to understand why men cannot pee INTO the toilet instead of on the rim and the lid and the seat and the floor and everywhere else EXCEPT the water in the bowl!
This would be a godsend and I would be even more of a clean freak than I already am! Fingers crossed and thanks for the chance to win this amazing machine!
I used to have a little hand steamer...this looks FABULOUS! Would love to do some deep cleaning in my house!
Thanks for this post and the chance to win such a great prize. We have dogs and cats and the upholstery cold really use a deep cleaning.
My house is in desperate need of some deep cleaning!! You bring up a great point about pulling out the oven and refrigerator, but I can honestly say this terrifies me, lol. I don't even want to see what's under there! Do you think the steam machine would help with tough stains set into the linoleum? Mine looks terrible but no amount of mopping helps.
Looks great. I need this for my house
I have wanted one of those forever. I've been disabled for many years now and I know that it would help me so much. Cleaning is so hard for me to do and I can only do a little at a time.
My home needs this!
Thanks for all your tips for how you use your Steam Machine. Gosh, it'd beat getting down on my hands and knees to clean the gray...I mean white...grout!
Guess I am behind the times, didn't even know this little cleaning jewel existed. Would sure make my life easier!!

I really would love to win this incredible cleaning machine. My car and house are in desperate need of a deep cleaning.
Great checklist! I too wonder what I'll find under my stove. Its always a cache of cat toys, and household objects that cat has decided are her toys
I was just thinking I needed to find a list for spring cleaning. Thank you!
I have never used a steam cleaner but always wanted one. I hope I win!
Totally convinced that I need one of these things!
Would love to clean our couch on a regular basis - especially since our pup loves to clean his face off after dinner by rubbing his face all over the seat!
I love your blog! I'm always more motivated to clean and get things done after I've read your articles. I bought a power washer after I read about how you removed chipped paint from the foundation of your house with one. Thank you so much for all the tips and tricks! I hope I win the steam cleaner, if not I'll probably have to buy one! :)
I love this giveaway! Sure hope I win, I have lots of nooks and crannies that could use a good cleaning!
The steam cleaner would be great to clean so much in my house.

I've been looking for a few years for a good steam cleaner! I just wish I could find a store in my area that carries the HomeRight steam machine but alas, no one does.

This looks great!! Could really use.
I love the idea of steaning my curtains! I have wrinkles from when I bought them that never hung out! It would be amazing to had a household tool likr this!
Clean one space at a time. I usually try to do one room per day unless I have a lot of helpers. It is easier, mentally and physically, to only have to worry about one room at a time.
I would like to use it to clean my toilet.
The worst job in my house is the stove! No amount of scrubbing the glass door will get it clean. I'll bet the steam would do the job!
Oh my goodness, I love all the different household items that can be cleaned with this steamer! Actually makes me want to get started cleaning my whole house. Cleaning grout with would surely be easier than using a toothbrush! Thanks for the list to help with deep cleaning.
This could make cleaning toilets a breeze!
I would first clean out the car, then I would use on the blinds and furniture.
My favorite tip was to Have a small tote with a handle to carry all your supplies. And of course, have your SteamMachine filled with water and ready to go!.
What a great giveaway!
I absolutely love the air vent tip ,a place I often ignore!
I'd use this on my couch!
My favorite tips: steam cleaning the mattress and the baseboard corners
Great article! Thank you.
I've always wanted one of these! I didn't even think of half of the things you listed that you can do with it!
Clean one space at a time. I have a habit of doing a little here and there in each room and then it never feels like I completely clean any of the rooms.
A squegee attachment for window tracks..what?! My life is complete!
Wow! I never knew it had so many uses. Cleaning up after my two dogs will be so much easier.
I would love to use the steam cleaner for the couches, chairs and beds.
My favorite tip or way to use the steam machine is "Don't forget the light switches. They are some of the most touched things in our home.".

Uses so little water and works so well!
There are too many ways I want to use a steam cleaner! I love the idea of the toilet! And my grout really needs some TLC. But so does the shower door... wow, my bathrooms would really benefit from a steam cleaner-and we have FOUR bathrooms!
Let be all the tips but cleaning windows would be awesome.
Love it. So thorough and some excellent ideas I have not thought of.
I need it for all the reasons listed however Cleaning the toilet (especially the seat hinges) is a top priority ?
I love the tip about cleaning the toilet. I would love to take that steamer and just go to town on mine. I am always worried about what is lurking in the cracks and crevices
Honestly, I can't give you only one reason why this would be incredible. Lol! My precious Nana passed away last May and she left me her home. It's pretty big, 5 bedrooms, 3 different levels and tons of old carpet/ stair that need major help. I will be doing little projects little by little but doing the entire house at a time just isn't in my budget- naturally. Lol. I also have pets so this would be great! I love that it can do so much like cleaning toilet hinges (yes, please) and grout in the kitchen!
A light steam on fondant cakes makes them clean & pretty! I'd love a steamer for this and every other cleaning possibility! ?
My favorite way to use a steam machine is on my curtains to get the wrinkles out.
Definitely need to do some major spring cleaning around my house! Thanks for the printables. Fingers crossed for the steamer!
I've been cleaning and resealing the grout on my tile floors small sections at a time over the last couple of weeks. I'd love to try the steamer on those grout lines and so many other places in my home.
