It is that time of year when people are falling victim to head colds and the flu. While we snuggle on the couch and wait for it to pass we dream of tropical islands, spring, and coconut snow cones. Or maybe that is just me.
Our family has been lucky in the past and have not gotten sick a lot. Earlier this month we were hit with the most horrendous flu. Before this time, my kids have always made it to the bathroom or at least made it to the bowl by their bed. This time however, it came on so fast that they were making messes left and right. Three things saved my sanity... essential oils, chocolate, and my SteamMachine.
I ended up making makeshift beds in the unfinished part of our basement since it is right next to the bathroom. I brought in a little TV/VCR combo we have held onto so they could watch the few VHS videos we have left. Then I sanitized the heck out of the upstairs. Healthy people up....sick people down.
If you have ever had more than one kid sick with the flu (especially the "bonus flu" as we call it) then you know the smell came take over your house. I swear it it the worst smell in the universe.
I can't believe I am writing about throw up, diarrhea, and toilets.....
OK, the smell. I seriously thought it was going to take forever to get my house back to smelling normal. I was doing enough laundry you have thought that would have helped. When I steam cleaned the upstairs bathroom, the smell went away. It smelled (for lack of a better word) neutral. No smell! I figured it was pointless to keep cleaning the downstairs bathroom while kids were still sick, so as soon as they were all well, I steamed the down bath too.
You know how hard it is to clean around all the hinges on the seat? And the knobs covering the screws on the base? Steam them and stuff will ooze out that will haunt your dreams. You will be grossed out that it has been there the whole time.
Pretty much everything gets steamed in the bathroom. I steam not only the toilet but the sink, shower, door, and the tile. There are different attachments you can change out depending on what you are cleaning. You can even clean windows, but not when it is cold outside. You don't want to risk the glass cracking.

I got too excited and forgot to add that I would clean the shower in my bathroom first.
I would love this machine - the first thing I would clean is my tile grout.
OMG I would love to win this!!! It's so awesome.. Thank you so very much for giving us the chance... I loved the story, poo-poo & all, Hee Hee... Love your blog! ???????
Sorry first thing I would clean is my cats litter box & kitchen counters
The first thing or place to be cleaned would be the bathroom. To imagine what all can be in a bathroom is kind of gross and we clean it all the time. The next place is my parent's bathroom. They are older and I can not get there as much as I would like but I would love to make sure that their place is clean as well.
Oh the possibilities! This is gross, but I'd use it to help clean the dog drool off the walls first
This is a great giveaway. I would use it to clean my kitchen floor. Thanks for the chance to win.
This would be so great to own. First to clean -- the bathroom and the kitchen. And go on and on and on. Thank you for offering this wonderful tool.
The first thing I would steam would be my bathroom!!! The entire thing!!! :)
I would steam my kids bathroom toilet and shower!
I would clean the bathroom. I have an in home daycare with 7 boys!!
That steam cleaner looks amazing! I would clean my living room furniture for sure.
Our upstairs bathroom (rarely used) could use a good steaming...or gut job. Either one ;)
I don't normally enter giveaways... But this! ... THIS I NEED! After 8 doctor visits, three rounds of strep, and lots of colds in just the past few weeks, my house needs a serious deep clean. Me and my house would LOVE this steam machine.
I dream of owning a steamer! I just might be a germaphobe. :) The cleaning would begin in the bathroom, starting with the toilet!
Does "my entire house" count as the first thing I would steam?! We have three rescue animals (2 cats and a dog), so this would be so amazingly helpful for us! My husband has Type 1 diabetes and sickness really wreaks havoc on his blood sugar. This would be great for when I'm sick and trying not to get him sick!
Bathroom tile floors!
The bathroom! It's been a rough sick season?
I would actually enjoy cleaning the bathrooms with one of these!!! =} I can actually think of a lot of things around the house that I would clean with this that would make my life SO much easier!! =}
I have 4 young boys...3 of them have been potty-trained in this house and #4 will have his turn this summer. I NEED this to super-clean our bathrooms. We've had a few rounds of the "bonus flu" too and I'm typically on my knees, with a toothbrush and bleach solution, cleaning around the toilets and the grout to try to eliminate the smell. Thanks for sharing honestly about this use of a steam cleaner. I'm going to check out your other uses of it now too. Thanks!!
Definitely my bathroom!!! I have four sons and a husband....!!!
Having one of these would be a dream!
Bathrooms and kitchens are never clean enough for me, that would be amazing in helping me get it there!
My tile! I have a few spots I just can't get clean. This would be perfect.
I'd attack my kids' bathroom shower. It's down right scary.
I would actually like to clean my van. Oh the things I would do to that van......
i would first use it in my shower, and then my son's shower, the toilets. Then the oven. Would love to see the grim disappear so easily and quickly and know I didn't need to use chemicals to get the jobs done.
I've been wanting a steam machine for forever! Everytime I clean my toilets I want to clean around those hinges where the seat attaches so bad but you can't get in those little cracks!!
I've been wanting a steam machine for forever! Everytime I clean my toilets I want to clean around those hinges where the seat attaches so bad but you can't get in those little cracks!! I also hate when there is that black Greese on door hinges I would love to just see that melt off!
I would clean the gummy film off my kitchen cupboards. :/
Well, now that you mentioned it, it would have to be the hinges on all the toilets in the house!
I'd clean the bathroom walls. Then I can repaint knowing there's not nastiness lingering.
The kids' bathroom, top to bottom!
Would love to be able to sanitize and clean with steam instead of chemicals.
My master bath is carpeted...EWWW....but I would steam clean everything in it. Spa tub jets, toilet area, shower.
Definitely my husband's bathroom first, the main bathroom second and then ALL the tile grout!!
Oh man....I'd be cleaning our bathrooms first and foremost, but then our dishwasher!!! The inside of that thing can get so yucky....
I would definitely clean the toilet
I will clean my bathroom with this awesome steam cleaner. I would clean my shower, sinks and toilet!
I'm a big believer in steam cleaning! (I'm allergic to artificial scents so most cleaners bother me.) However, what I have is a baby compared to what you used; hope to win! :D
Oops, forgot to say I'd clean my stovetop first.
Oh definitely the bathroom.
child care and family need this to keep the kiddies from the tummy bug going round
Oh, man - I'd steam my bathroom floor. I have a husband with poor aim and that floor smells no matter what I do!

Oh, I have boys and really need this for the bathrooms.
Christina in FL
Oh I'd be steaming the kitchen sink first.... so excited! :)
I have boys so the first thing I would clean would be their bathroom.
I would steam my couches!!!
What an awesome giveaway!!! I'm with you, needing to clean the hinges and crevices of the toilets--with two young boys it gets stinky fast!!!
I would clean my toilet, and then the rest of the bathroom. I have several rescue cats, and they all seem to gravitate to the bathroom. We have even taken the lid off the tank, because so many of them like to drink the water. I don't know why...I haven't a clue. They stand on the toilet seat and drink. I also have one who will climb in the bathroom sink and sleep. We have no children, just hubby and I, so we make do. Not so good for our guest. I really need this.
I would clean around the back of the kitchen sink. There is no way to get that area clean because of the smell. The steam would leave that sanitary and free from the things you don't see. Then we all would be happy.
this machine sounds amazing. I did not know there was something for the home out there with this much potential.
Bonus Flu, i will have to remember that one. This makes me want to steam my whole house now!
I would clean my Kitchen first. I have horrible allergies and two big messy dogs.
After seeing this, the first thing I'd clean would be my toilets and the entire bathroom!
My entire kitchen. This would be fantastic.
Having 3 boys plus my husband, the first and foremost thing I'd clean would be the bathrooms!
Definitely the bathroom, next the kitchen. Caretaker to my mom, need constant cleaning. This would be ideal
The very first thing I would clean is the toilet!
OH MY! I'm SO excited for the chance to win one of these and to read your review of this product. Have been reading a lot lately about this machine and wondered how it worked, so thanks for your recommendation. Love your blog and your tips - keep it up!
Thanks again -
Barbara in TN
I would definitely clean my toilet first. I live with 3 boys. I don't think I need to say anything else :) .
My Oven!!! Can't scrub and don't like using products on it so a good steam would be: Oh so perfect!!!
This would be awesome to have, especially in the bathroom where we keep the cat's litter box!!
My oven, for sure! I avoid using the self-cleaning option at all costs, so a steam clean option would be perfect! :)
I would definitely clean my bathrooms first!
Thank you for the opportunity to win this wonderful steam cleaner! I don't have any children living in the house anymore, but I do have four pets. Sometimes I think they track in more than the kids ever did :). I would start with the foyer and move on from there. Thank you, also, for making this a simple entry.
The first place I would steam clean would be the kids bathroom.
I was just wishing for one of these while I cleaned by bathroom recently. I can't imagine anything better for getting grimy, sticky, hard to reach places really clean. Love your posts....they're always helpful!
I would start in my bathroom and work on my shower...
The bathroom would definitely be the first room I would run to with a new steamer! : )
Oh, what would I clean first? Toilets, probably. Or the water dispenser on my fridge. Or the grout in the shower. Or, or, or.... The possibilities are endless. We just moved into a home and I want to buy a steamer like this one to give everything a good cleaning. Thanks for the recommendation!
The first thing I would clean would be our kitchen floor...then hit the bathrooms :) Thank you :)
With 3 boys I need this in my life! lol
I would clean my stove, it is black and doesn't always get cleaned as good as it should (we have a big household). I would also test on my kitchen cabinets and see how it would clean them. Thank you for the chance to win. I'm sorry about the flu, I know in our house how that works, one gets it and it usually goes down the line. Have a great day!
I would love one of these steamers. Steam blast every nook and cranny would almost make cleaning fun! ?
My kitchen floors. I can't seem to get the film off from when we tiled it! I am confident this little machine would do the trick!!
Bathroom! We recently moved into a rental with lots of charm (I.e. molding, crevices, and ledges that are hard to search).
I would clean our bathrooms and every handle and knob in our house! With a jet tub in the master bath, I have found it very difficult to clean around the jets, so the steam cleaner would be the answer to this frustration.
I would love to win the steam cleaner! Bathrooms, I have 1 husband 1 son 3 grandsons can I say more. My husband is old my son can't see and the grandkids don't care if you get the message. Thanks
I would love to win the HomeRight
steam machine. My car would be the first thing I attached with a steam machine!!!
I would love to have a SteamMachine for lots of cleaning jobs around my house. First up would be my car interior... thanks for the chance to win!
My 3 sons share a bathroom. That's the first thing I would steam clean if I won.
Thanks for the chance to win! Hope your family is feeling better!
How great to win this really great product. My shower could really use this product.
I've wanted (needed) a steam cleaner for years! I would first use it in my husband's bathroom. And the cat boxes, yes! Although maybe not necessarily in that order!
Bathrooms, bathrooms, bathrooms! That would be the first thing I would clean.
DEFINITELY my daughter's bathroom!!!! **crosses fingers**
Thanks for the opportunity to win! Can't wait to clean the bathrooms with one!
The first place I would use this is on an old stain that keeps reappearing in the white carpet. Then I would clean the rest of the house! Thanks!
Most certainly first use would be to steam clean my husband's bathroom (which is also the pool bath). No need to elaborate! :)
Beginning with the fan vent, I would clean the water closet in my master bedroom from top to bottom, not missing a square inch. We've lived in this house for 8 months and I cannot get the smell of the previous owners out! Ceiling, walls, base boards, tile & toilet!!
I honestly didn't know these existed! Amazing! I would do my bathroom! We live in a rental so who knows how many different people have used it.
I would use it on my bathrooms and Kitchen first. Then get down to projects such as my humidifier that takes a beating every winter!
I've wanted one of these for a long time! I would clean my bathrooms, starting with the toliets.
The first thing I will steam is the laundry room where my old cat "went" a few times!!! He has passed recently and I've cleaned but it still doesn't smell "before" Moo. That was my cats name!
Then I would let my daughter borrow it. She has three young children and one is potty training!
Thanks for this chance.
I would sanitize my bathroom
No question I would start off in my children's bathroom!
The first thing I would clean would be the bathrooms. Next after that would be the kitchen. I love the idea of such a clean space without any chemicals!
Very interesting cleaning technique. I would love to win this to clean my kitchen floor.
With two boys, definitely the bathroom!!
I would clean our master shower! I have re-caulked the thing several times, but the little black spots keep re-appearing. I need to strip the caulk, steam it, dry it for several days, and caulk again.
I would clean the bathrooms and kitchen!
What a fabulous giveaway! The first thing I would clean would be my entire bathroom.
I would clean my couch!
Thanks for the fun!
I LOVE this! I think too often cleaning is only associated with chemicals. We had a steam cleaner that we loved, but sadly the hose broke. Our replacement has not measured up and I would love to teu the HomeRight SteamMachine!
What wouldn't I clean?,. Bathrooms, kitchen, laundry room anything the dogs touch... Then I'd take it to my son's apartment !
I have 3 boys so the FIRST thing will have to be the TOILET! ;)
Oh my goodness the list is so long for all of the things I would clean!! I think I would start with the bathrooms and then I would tackle the kitchen. I need desperately to deep clean a lot of things.
I would clean my bathroom
The first thing I would clean would definitely be the toilet bowl, not one of my favourite jobs, especially when the man in the leaves his mark in the washroom..lol
My floors - without a doubt and the very moment it comes in the mail! I have vinyl tile floors that show every speck of dirt and never seem to come clean....something has to help!
I would do the toilet first. My husband doesn't aim very well, and I'm sick and tired of that mess! If only they had a bullseye in the toilet bowl, or maybe I should just have them install a urinal! Sigh, but then that would be even more to clean!!
Ohhh, I would be cleaning my tile grout! It is always so yucky no matter how much I clean it! I would love to try steam cleaning it. :)
Oh my, the bathroom would definitely be the first thing to clean, then the kitchen! What a great give away, thank you!
I so need one of these. We moved into our house last summer and all three kids share a bathroom and it's just YUCK!!!!!!!!! My poor daughter has to share with her two brothers and well, it's boys, need I say more? The whole house and yes, my old van could use this. I have a penny suck in my ash tray that I can get out. This could help it.
OMG if I had a steam cleaner I'd have the cleanest house in all of Arkansas!! Right now it's probably second only to my mother's :) Love your blog & your style!
With four dogs and two cats, I'm always looking for safe, chemical-free ways to keep the house clean.
My kids' bathroom. Somehow that place always smells a little like pee.
I'd most definitely clean my car first. After seeing the magic you did on yours, I can only hope mine will come out as clean.
Loved your story. I would definitely steam clean my bathroom too! I can't stand dirt or germs. That looks like a very handy and wonderful machine!
Love this idea! Steam is so much better!
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would definitely steam clean the bathroom that my TWO teenage boys use. I don't dare use it unless it's a dire emergency. Teenage boys smell. That's it. I prefer to subject myself to my girly, flowery scented bathroom.
I hope everyone is feeling better now! I would love to steam clean my kitchen sink and then the bathrooms!
I think I would start where you did-in the bathroom!
I'd do everything in my son's bedroom :) And then all the switches and handles in the house. Then hand it over to the kids to do the cars. Sorry. That's more than one thing. I got carried away just thinking about the things we could clean ;) Thx for the giveaway!
I need this! My son refuses to clean the bathroom so this will keep the toilet clean.
I would definitely clean my bathrooms! I have a five year old and a potty training three year old, both boys! You know that means our toilets need an extra good cleaning!
My son's bathroom, we all know why. :)
I love HomeRight products! If I won the steamer, the first project that I would do is clean the grout on the tile walls in my kid's bathroom. It should be white, but looks tan right now. Ugggh. I love the idea of being able to detail our cars with it, as well!
I NEED one of these. I had an upright steamer and it broke. I really miss it and for some reason I've yet to replace it.
I would clean my toilets! The hinges are IMPOSSIBLE to clean well!
Oh, how I would love to try that to clean behind the toilet in our master bath! It's a tight squeeze to get back there on hands and knees!
I WOULD LOVE ONE OF THESE!!! The first places I'd clean would be the bathrooms
Awesome giveaway! I would start with the front porch. After a long winter it needs to get in shape for spring guests.
This is a great giveaway! The first thing to be cleaned would be the bathroom.
My grandson visits often and, boy, would this come in handy. (EWWW!)
The first thing I would clean would be the bathtub. It gets terrible ring around the tub from my fiancé's baths.
Moving to a new house... all bathrooms, kitchen, window sills and corners of each room will be steam cleaned!
No question. The kitchen! The floors, the refrigerator, the counters. Although, must admit, the bathroom is running a close second!
I have been looking for a good steam cleaner and this just might be it.
I know my bathroom could really use this but I would love to clean my oven with this like you did in another post. It would be a miracle!
I would definitely for sure steam clean the toilets first! This machine sounds like a jewel because yes...it is so hard to clean around all those hinges and joints and feel like they are "really" clean!
The flu is the worst....especially when more than one in the family has it. I am glad you are all feeling better. I would steam clean my shower first if I won this handy little machine...those hard water stains on the door are the bane of my existance. Thanks for the chance to win!!
I've wanted a steam cleaner forever!! I would take 50 year old linoleum first! I feel like the floors are never really clean!
I would love to steam clean our couch! Thanks for the chance to win one!
I would love to try it on my oven! I am such a messy cook and my oven is always a mess - yet I hate cleaning it! With the steam cleaner it wouldn't be such a chore and my oven would sparkle
I know what you mean, one time the flue hit our family and we didn't have enough bathrooms, but luckily we all survived. Like you afterward the cleaning and trying to sterilize everything, the problem was I didn't have a steam machine and still don't.
I can think of so many uses for this HomeRight Steam Machine from cleaning the bathroom to cleaning the interior of the autos.
I really need this wonderful hard working steam machine, so I don't have to work so hard!!!
I would clean the tile in my foyer if I won.
Flu has invaded our home as well and with our oldest daughter being a teacher, we keep grandkids when they are sick. To say the least, I have done my fair share of scouring, scrubbing and nurturing from a distance as much as possible. That steamer would have come in handy but would b e a lifesaver with the 15 year old Jack Russell who has moved in. Since we are his "nursing home" we attempt to make his life as wonderful and non-restrictive as possible. That being said, he is old, virtually blind and deaf so accidents are not daily by any means but they are not uncommon. With that steamer I could be the quickest draw in the South...instead of this filly carrying a six shooter I would holster one mean steam shooter! If germs want to call me out for a dual that is just fine but they would be wise to just take the next transport out of this house (town) Germs would have because they just aren't welcome here.
So the first place would be a tour of all scenes of an old dogs crime(s) for a little steam clean to make new mama cringe less every time I think of those spots.
I love these steamers and need one in my life!! I can think of hundreds of uses, including steaming my new curtains! :)
I'd steam my bathroom tiles first, then proceed to every room in the house!
I would steam clean my van!
The first thing I'd clean would be....everything! I think I would go kinda nuts.
Cleaning is one thing but knowing your home is free of nasty germs is another (especially in the bathroom..EWWW!)
I would love a steam cleaner to help me clean my house!
I would clean all of the bathrooms in my house.

Definitely the bathroom! It needs it bad!

My shower would be he first thing to get steamed!
My kids bathroom would be the very first thing. I know there is no way it's as clean as I would like it to be!
hey girl I know what you mean about cleaning the toilets! Yuck! I would clean them first!
Oh, definitely the bathroom!!!
I would definitely be cleaning all three bathroom first. Thank you for this giveaway!
I didn't even know this was a thing...certainly my bathrooms...I could only imagine the grossness
I would steam clean my bathroom first and then I would steam clean my friends entire kitchen. Hes a man and honey, let me tell you it needs it desperately. From the oven to the range top to the sink to the refrigerator to the counters to the ceiling fan. I mean desperately. That is the first thing I would do and then sit back and smile knowing it is all clean and sanitized. It would make his day as well as mine. I,m sure his landlord would like it as well. But yes, that,s what I would do.
My bathroom! I would love one of those machines. I dread the bathroom the most.
I'd love this! And the first thing I'd clean would be the kids' bathroom.
I'd probably tackle my kids bathroom. It's crazy how much gunk those kids can create in a short amount of time.
What a wonderful prize and I too will be steam cleaning the bathroom. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.
Oh how amazing! I would clean my bathrooms!
I guess I'd start with the toilets!

I would love to win this for my daughters new house !!

I would clean everything I possibly could till I got exhausted!
The bathroom would be the first on my list. With only one bathroom in our old house, it gets a lot of use!
Wow! Looks like a great tool to have. Thanks for letting us know about it.
I love using steam to clean. Everything sparkles without residue and I feel like the germs are destroyed. This unit looks like it has all of the attachments you could ever need.
My bathrooms! Especially the one where the litter box is!
We purchased a home with lots of stains. This item would be used in the bathrooms and kitchen. Thanks!

I would clean my toilets right away! With horrible morning sickness and a house of little boys, I've been getting way to close and personal with my disgusting toilets!!
First, I would steam clean my husband's truck. Thanks for the opportunity to win the HomeRight SteamMachine.
I wasn't even aware this magic contraption even existed. After three months of waiting for a warmer day to bathe my dog, I would steam clean the guest room she's taken over. I recently made a 500+ mile move and am anxiously awaiting visits from friends and family in Spring...once I clean the dog stink from where they'll be resting their heads!
The first thing I would clean is my two son's bathroom.
The first place I would steam clean is the bathroom. Thank you for the opportunity to win the steam machine.

Kitchen floor. With a 16 month old and an English bulldog, my hard floors take a germy beating
Hmmm probably a bathroom or maybe the kitchen. Need to find out if I can use this on my stained concrete floors.
The bathroom!!! And maybe my sink! I've always wanted one!!
There are so many options to clean but I would start with my bathroom. Thanks for the chance to enter.
I would definitely clean the shower in my master bathroom first. I never have been able to get that shower truly clean since we bought this house!
The toilets for sure!!!
Bathroom since we have been suffering with the stomach flu!
The part where you described cleaning the hinges on the toilet seat cover had me grinning ear to ear and then petrified to know what's in there! I need this machine in my life!
I need one of these so bad! I have two little boys that have terrible aim. the first thing I would steam is my bathroom.
I would pick my kitchen. We have beautiful old hinges and faucets bought at an antique market. As much as I love them, we have never been able to get all the history off! They are begging for some love of a steam cleaner.
I would clean every door knob!!!
That is amazing!! I can think of so many things I want to clean with that!!
I so need a steam cleaner!!! I would love to clean everything in my home especially the bathrooms!
We are currently in the middle of the sickness. This would be amazing to get and clean my house! Get all those germs gone.
This would be wonderful to do my floor boards first! I hate trying to get in the corners and crevices and my fingers always hurts afterwards ha!
The toilet in my boys bathroom...that's a no brainer!!
The first thing I would clean is our tub. My hubby works in a foundry and I can't seem to keep the black scum off the white tub!
My bathrooms! Especially my boys' bathroom! ?
This makes me itch to clean my entire house! The first thing I would use this steam machine on would definitely be on my stand up glass shower. I hate how quickly mold can build up on the grout and all the corners of the shower. It's always so difficult to clean. I'm crossing my fingers to win this!
I would clean my toilets! I live with three boys and boy could I use this!!
The first thing I would clean with the SteamMachine from HomeRight would be my son's Jeep. It is so gross!!! Thank you for the chance!
As much as I'd hate it, I'd have to clean my 15 year old son's bathroom. Ick!!!
January 2016 will go down in our family history as "the month the plague hit (cue dramatic music?)." I think I could use this on the whole house but I'd start with the bathrooms. Love your Instagram!
I would definitely clean the bathrooms - the toilets and the shower! Oh and the car too... having a toddler - you have no idea what food lurks underneath that car seat!
My bathroom! All of it!

Thank you for this post...wish I knew about this when my family was sick last month.....I would love this, great idea!!!
Having all boys in the house the first thing I would clean would be the toilet!
Our little house was built in 1900. We rent, so there's only so much we can do.
There's a 4" space between the staircase and the wall that I can barely fit a broom into. I'd steam that puppy but good!
Where would I start?! The yucky bathroom! Then move on to the kitchen, basement and maybe even our grill!
I need this home cleaning machine! First thing to clean, the mold and mildew off the walls and ceiling of my bathroom.
I have been wanting to try one of these. I would clean my bathroom first.
Hmmmmm... What would I clean first??? My bathroom ... You have inspired me!!
Oh. My. Goodness. I need a steamer! I potty trained my kiddo a few weeks ago, and last week we got the flu (and bonus flu). I would start in our powder room, since that's the toilet that has gotten the most action over the last few weeks (is that TMI???) then quickly take it up to the upstairs bathroom where my daughters bathroom is.
I would start with the bathroom! Probably with the floor around the toilet!!
The main bathroom the kids use! I just had baby #5 (kids are ages 8, 5, 4, 2 and a month) and the bathroom is constantly needing cleaning.. this would be amazing!!
I love steam cleaning! Mine is on it's last legs so hopefully I'll win.
Ahh! I would head right on over to my fiancé's house, straight to his bathroom, and clean that ASAP! His roommate is a mess, and my fiancé works a lot, so I need to get that place cleaned top to bottom before I move in!
The first thing i would clean with this would be the tiles in my bathroom.
The bathroom for sure. Even with cleaners I feel like you can see the germs lurking!
Oh, my, I would clean my boys' bathroom. I swear I can never get that scent out of there no matter how long I clean or with what. :)

I would clean both my bathrooms. The thought that stuff is in there to ooze out is freaking me out!
I would steam my kitchen first
The BLock walls on my porch
I would first clean the tile in my bathtub. Then do the bathroom floors.
The first place I would use it would be to sanitize my teenage son's ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK/CAUTION:BATHROOM. That would be great to have to kill all of the germs in there. Thanks for the giveaway.
I would clean my shower. Sounds like an awesome machine
Great tips for keeping your home clean with sick kiddos! I think I would clean showers and toilets first if we won a steamer.
We would clan showers and toilets first!
i'd love this!
I would do all my bathrooms!! Especially the toilets!!
I would start with my hall bathroom and then the kitchen. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.
I'd love to use this on our bathroom. We're moving in a couple months, so it'd be great to use this so we can get our deposit back!
The Bath Room!
My kiddos bathroom! It needs all the help it can get. :)
I have a house full of boys. The idea of getting all those nooks & crannies on the toilet clean almost makes me shout for joy!!
I'd clean my kids' bathroom!
I would clean around my toilet and sink. I hate the gunk around the hinges.
I would first clean the tile in the upstairs bath. It's been there since 1955 when the house was built and I love the vintage look of it. The tile is pink with gray tile trim around the tub, the vanity and surrounding walls. Love it.
My ice maker! Thanks for the chance.
Would love to try this on the carpeted stairway and spots where the dog loves to lay!
I would steam clean every inch of my son's bathroom!
I love the idea of steam cleaning the house- why didn't it occur to us sooner?! I would do a serious sanitizing on the bathrooms and kitchen and I'm sure cleaning g the doggies messes would be gone as well! Thanks for the great blog!!!
Master bathroom shower! Thanks for the chance!
I think I want to do this in the kitchen. My littles love hanging round and playing all day long. It's not like they have a whole den full of toys...!
There's so much in my home that could use a good steaming!
I would steam clean the kid's bathroom.
My bathroom needs sooooo much help, it's ridiculous. We have yet to be able to pull the carpet up from the floor in the bathroom and replace it with tile, so it always has that kinda stinky bathroom smell (I have 3 guys in the house). We do our best keeping it clean, but it always seems to get dirty so fast. This steamer would most definitely help with that!
My shower tile needs this in its life!!!!!
Hope your family is all well again. I would love to have a steam machine to help make cleaning easier! Thanks for the chance to win it.
I'd definitely love to steam clean my bathroom first!
I would love a steam cleaner for this old house! Replacing toilets and have lots of tile to clean. Thank you for the opportunity and I so enjoy your blog!
I would clean my car first. Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful giveaway.
The more I look at the tile in my bathrooms, the more I need to win this!
I'm three weeks postpartum, so my bathroom hasn't been cleaned really well for a little while now. I would love to give it a good steam clean!
I would steam clean my shower!!
I'd love to win
I will steam my toilet ? as we have lots of boys and can't emagine a better way to get rid of all that horrible men wee smell! Well ofcourse I'd clean the rest of the bathroom aswell. But the toilet really goes first ;)
I need one of these so bad! I want to prove that my sinks can be shiny like new again.
If I were to win the steamer, the first thing I would clean is my old oven.
My son and his fiancee will be married next month, and have purchased an older home. My soon to be daughter in law asked for our old oven. Because we are in the middle of a kitchen renovation and will get new appliances, my soon to be daughter-in-law asked if they could have my old oven. Of course, she can have my oven. But it desperately needs cleaning before I give it to her.
So I would clean the oven before they take it to their home.
THE TOILETS FOR SURE!!! I have 3 boys!!!
Our bathrooms and the catbox!
Tough choice between the window tracks and that pit of despair that is the track for the sliding door on my minivan.
