When I think of Fall, I think of leaves changing colors, pumpkins, canning vegetables from my garden, and.... deep cleaning! The cleaning bug starts to bite when the kids go off to school. After the kids have been home all summer making messes, it is nice to get things all scrubbed. When I think of deep cleaning, I immediately think of my SteamMachine! It is so nice to steam clean the house from top to bottom.
One of my favorite places to steam clean is in the bathroom. First of all because it has loads of germs and also because there are a ton of nooks and crannies that are hard to clean with anything else.
I start with the sink. Talk about nooks and crannies! The grooves where the metal meets the ceramic sink tend to have a lot of stuff built up. Some steam with the little scrub brush is the only way to get rid of it! And when I take the stopper out, it smells like a fish tank. I scrub that up too.
I rinse the scrub brush off and head over to the tub.
The next thing I steam clean is our tub and shower. Our tub and faucet are new so there wasn't a ton of grime to clean up, but it is really good at getting the water spots off. Darn hard water! When the tile gets a bit more use out of it, it will be nice to use the floor attachment to clean it up.
I love the look of my cute vanity hardware, but when I wipe them off, I can never get the dust out the grooves along the edges. My SteamMachine gets the built up dust off in seconds!
Next I work my down to the vent and baseboards. The same small scrub brush attachment is great for the top of the baseboards that collect dust (especially corners!). I make sure and have a dry rag handy to wipe it all away.
Floors are next. There's a mop head to tackle the whole floor and then I use the jet nozzle tip and the small brush tip to work on the grout. You can see one part of the tile has been cleaned and the other hasn't.
The last thing I steam clean is the toilet. The hinges are the worst kind of nook and cranny. The germs lurking there make my skin crawl. When the steam hits it and stuff comes out from there it is both gross and satisfying at the same time. I go ahead and steam the outside of the bowl and the base. Those knobs that cover the floor screws are also tough to clean unless you use the SteamMachine.
When I am done I scrub the tips I used in hot soapy water before putting them away for next time.

Does my car count? I swear it’s a never ending battle ha ha
I definitely have a hard time cleaning the underside of my range hood. I really hate cleaning it and have thought steam would make the job easier, especially since it is one of those chores I let slide until I have to clean it because I hate it so much.
I find cleaning around the facets the toughest to keep clean!
Definitely the bathrooms!
The bathroom!! I would do exactly what you have done in your post if I had a Home Right Steam Machine. Thanks for the give away.
The toughest and most tedious place in our house for me to clean is the bathroom, especially the shower tiles. I think this would work wonders!
I have extremely hard water in my area even though I have a water softener in my home. The hard water leaves a very difficult film on my bathroom fixtures, shower doors, and tub. I would love to try this on my hard water problem areas. I'd also love to try this on my cooktop around the burners and knobs.
The baseboard molding in my house with 2 dogs and 5 cats is a nightmare. but I love my kids, :)

Without a doubt - the car heat vents...
The bathroom and the kitchen sink by far my toughest areas.
I find the shower hard to clean.
I feel that the bathroom is the toughest to get really clean!
I find the shower and the area around the shower enclosure very hard to clean. I have tall ceilings and the tile of the shower is much taller than I am. It's hard to try to get the ladder in there and balance and scrub the tile.
The kitchen seems never ending so that's my pick!

Sure would like this steam cleaner to clean my kitchen and also the tile in my bathroom!
My house has 3 bathrooms and I hate cleaning around the toilets.

Oooooh, I totally get the 'it is both gross and satisfying at the same time'.... Cleaning the bathroom is a yucky job!!
You are right - the bathroom is so hard to clean but this cleaner looks awesome! My kitchen floor is also a doozy and I can't wait to replace it with something easier to clean.
The toilet is hardest to clean at my house...
Hmm, one thing, Id have to say bathroom too. But windows and tile grout are high on the list too.
This steam machine would be so handy everywhere, especially in the bathroom of course! I don't have kids but I have a husband who never grew up, so... much bigger messes to clean up!

Doors seem to be a continuous struggle in my house. No one seems to be able to use the handle and they leave dirty hand and finger prints all over the white doors.
Bathrooms are the most challenging rooms for me to keep clean unlike my kitchen where I spend the majority of my time. In my kitchen, I easily see what needs cleaning moment to moment. A steamer would make huge improvement in both rooms, however!
I tried to enter but am unable to post a comment in the Widget thing. Rafflecopter never works for me. This is a pretty neat cleaning device.
The bathrooms, for sure!
Definitely the the stove... It's so hard to get the grease off.
The floor behind the toilet!
This steam machine looks like it would knock a lot of time an scrubbing off of cleaning anywhere in the house! Thanks for the giveaway!
Our 54 year old home has a mixture of original and ten year old fixtures that could really use a good steam cleaning! Making it even more difficult it we are on well water and hard water with several discoloring minerals make the job harder. However country living makes it all worth it!
The grout on the back room floor
Window tracks are definitely a pain for me.
I hate cleaning grout with a passion! Thanks for the opportunity - my fingers are crossed!
My OVEN is one of many! I can tolerate chemicals. I make my own cleaner with baking soda and scrub for days. Not fun.

The bathroom is a constant struggle! I'm ready to steam it clean!!
That would work great for cleaning the shower tile and toilet.
Hmmm....nice giveaway. Would definitely like to use this in the bathroom - sink, bathtub, grout, toilet. I'm a senior citizen and often wonder how much longer my rotator cuff will last for doing deep cleaning.

Ugh, the bathroom grout is the hardest to clean.
Definitely toilets with 3 sons and a husband
The grooves on the window tracks are really hard!
The bathroom is always the worst, living in a remodel it never feels thorough enough. This steamer looks like it would make it possible to deep clean the way I want!

The microwave! It's above the range, and I'm short...and the mess is always baked on. Yick!

I'd love to have the grout in my bathroom floor super clean and looking like new again.
The bathroom and kitchen!!!
grout is always the hardest.
This would be wonderful to clean the bathroom and around the cat litter boxes. I hate to use bleach or other harsh chemicals in those areas, but little else makes me feel like I've really cleaned and sanitized.
The bathroom - particularly the tub and shower. It would be nice to have the steamer to help with that cleaning and make things more germ free.
I need this to follow around my stinky-old-occasionally-accident-prone dog!

I'd love this for my bathrooms. I have 3 and sometimes I feel like it takes forever to thoroughly clean them all! This would solve that problem!
i have all wood vented doors on my closets and I find it impossible to get into the nooks and crannies of these doors. Hoping the steam machine could do the job.
Edges edges edges in every room. This steamer would be a gift from clean house heaven!
My bathroom is hard to clean
I find the kitchen really difficult to keep clean. Our counter is old and cracked and all sorts of gunk gets stuck in those cracks.
I would agree with anyone who dreads cleaning the bathroom as well and never, (until reading your post), would have thought of using a steam cleaner on bathroom fixtures. The tile floor, maybe but the fixtures, well that is just brilliant. Having raised 10 children, 8 of them boys, and now having grandchildren and four of our own still at home, winning a steamer just could make cleaning the bathroom less of a chore.
I just found your blog. Can't wait to read more.
Definitely the corners of the grout by my bathtub!
My shower is tough to clean. so much soap build up
It's hard to keep my family room carpet clean because we have 2 kids, 2 dogs and 3 cats -- one of them is always making a mess in there!
Ugh! Your vanity hardware makes me think of my kitchen hardware that gets all the greasy gunk in its creases. How does the steam cleaner work on grease?
The bathroom! It gets so gross.
Under the kitchen sink.
My faucets are the worst!! All the little nooks. Thanks!
I find it tough to clean tile grout, flooring that has "pores", & the inner portion of sliding windows! A HomeRight SteamMachine would be just incredible!!
The shower floor would be what I cleaned first if I won
I find the bathroom the hardest to clean
Soap scum and mildew on my shower is so hard to clean
The bathroom is always hard to keep the cleanest.
The ceramic tiled bathroom floor
The bathroom. Uhhh Sooo much work.. :)
The oven is the hardest to clean
Definitely around the bottom of the toilet it kills my back scrubbing and I never get it all the way clean.
I so need this!
I hate cleaning behind the faucets and the knobs. We have hard water and the lime builds up so fast- it's hard to clean it all off.
The kitchen is difficult for me.

I would love this. I have the worst time cleaning the bathroom as thoroughly as I'd like
