The Oreck Steam-It Review and Giveaway!!!- CLOSED
I learned a very important lesson around Halloween 2008. My neighborhood was “Booing” people where you leave treats for your neighbors and then you hang up a sign so everyone gets a turn. I had many different adhesives being a crafter and I got the not so brilliant idea of using a tape runner to hang up the sign. It was one of those permanent ones with the little raised dots. Big mistake, over a year later I had tape runner on my window by the front door. I tried everything I could think of to get it off. Window cleaner, vinegar, spit, all purpose cleaner nothing would do it. You couldn’t pick it off. It was stuck. When they say permanent they mean permanent. Well, not anymore. There is no more tape runner on my window by the front door thanks to the wonderful people at Oreck!
My son decided he wanted to decorate the glass of my entertainment center with stickers the other day. The picture of the sticker came off but not the sticky mess. My Oreck Steam-It took it all away with a wave of my new magic wand. Just think if you have stickers on your car windows that have been there for years, you can kiss them good bye. Oreck came up with what I now call Mommy’s magic wand, it is the Oreck Steam-it. Oreck is a vacuum company that has been around for many years. I am sure you are all familiar with the famous Oreck man from the commercials.
The Steam-It is pure genius it is more than just a steam mop; it more like a steam almost surface in your home machine. I have used my Steam-it to clean the seats of my toilets, fresh steamed toilet seats would make Mr. Monk happy. I have also used it in the tub to get in those hidden places where the gunk seems to hide. It is great on counter tops and cabinets. Of course you can mop your floors with it too. You can use it up high without having to worry about it leaking on you. I am most excited about being able to use it on my mattress which I am sure could need some freshening up.
I am sure you are wondering; what kind of products do you have to buy to put in it? I know when I had a carpet cleaner I hated having to buy the cleaning solution for it because it seemed to get used very quickly and that could get expensive too. I don’t have a carpet cleaner anymore, it broke so, I don’t have to worry about that anymore. The Steam-It only uses water. No nasty chemicals to add or worry about you just fill it up and turn it on. I am all about easy stuff when it comes to doing chores so I can spend my time with my adorable little boy.
The Steam-It comes with attachments too. They were a little hard to get on the wand at first but that is probably because it was new the first time. Make sure you just keep pressing on them. You would want a tight seal though. Something I also wanted to mention is I want to share with you about the funnel. It took me like a half an hour to find it. I thought that I was missing it. It is clear and blends in to the packaging. I have some pretty silly stories about thinking I don’t have parts of things. So, keep looking for the funnel I am sure it will be there.
I really love my Oreck Steam-It it has a million and one uses and I love that everything is steamed and sanitized. As a mom of a three year old I like to be as germ free as possible. Of course this would be great for anyone. I think it makes my home look wonderful and so clean. The unit costs $179.95 and just think about the money you will save on cleaners. It is a great item to own.
You can find the Oreck Steam-It at Oreck stores and online at Oreck’s website.
