Oreck Steam-It Steam Mop Review and Giveaway

I’m super excited to share about the steam mop that I have recently been able to try out – The Steam-It by OreckAnd, not only am I excited to share about our experiences with the Steam-It, but I’m thrilled that one of you will be able to win your very own Steam-It Steam Mop too!

This steam mop is so cool and versatile.  The Steam-It comes with six different attachments making it not just a mop, but a tool that is truly useful throughout the house.  The six attachments make it possible to clean all of the following with the Oreck Steam-It Steam Mop:

  • Drapes, crown molding, and ceiling fans (Yes, this means it can be held up over your head and it still works!)
  • Upholstery
  • Floors (most flooring surfaces including marble, ceramic, stone, vinyl, linoleum and sealed hardwood floors)
  • Kitchen and bathroom counters, sinks and appliances
  • Shower Grout
  • Windows

I just love it when I can get one product that can serve so many purposes.  When I first heard about the Steam-It Steam Mop, I was really pleased at the thought of trying it out.  But, then when I heard that it was so versatile, that’s when I got really excited!  If you’re like me, you don’t need anything else taking up space in your house, so having an appliance that can serve multiple purposes is such a blessing.

Besides serving multiple purposes, two of my favorite features about the Steam-It steam mop are:

1. No Harsh Chemicals – This steam mop cleans with steam, obviously.  So, you know what that means?  It’s just hot water.  Love it!  Great for the health of my family (and the environment).

2. Reusable Pads – A couple of the attachments use microfiber pads, such as for mopping.  There are two of each pad, which is great for when one is in the wash.  I love that this isn’t a product where you have to keep buying pads over and over again.  Again – great for my family (on our budget) and great for the environment.

Mopping is definitely the thing that we’ve used the Oreck Steam-It for the most often.  I had never been able to find a mop that I liked enough to save me from just getting on my hands and knees to clean the kitchen floor.  (This is especially tough for me, with one knee that is bad.)  The Steam-It is definitely saving my knee!  And, at just about 10 pounds, the Steam-It is even easy enough for all of my kids to use it to mop!

(Did you notice?  Even the seven year old is able to use it one handed!  However, this is the point where I have to say – really, this is some hot steam.  So, only let someone use it who would know better than to touch the steam area.)

Check out how gross the pad is after cleaning our small kitchen…

But, of course, like I already mentioned – I just threw the pad in the wash after using it.  (And, I had a clean one, in case I wanted to mop again before that pad was clean.)

Now is the point where I show you another area of my house that I would normally not show anyone…

I’m not sure why, but the grout in one of our showers always stays nice and white.  But, in our other shower – it’s just gross.  And, because I’m domestically challenged, I have a special way of dealing with that.  I ignore it.

The Steam-It made me not ignore that grout any longer.  Because we had ignored it for so long, we had to put in some serious work on the shower.  (Eric worked with me.)  We also decided that with a smaller attachment on the Steam-It, we felt like we were using some sort of Sci-Fi/Storm Trooper kind of weapon.  I asked Eric, “Do you think this is what they use the clean the bathrooms on the Death Star?”

As I mentioned already, the Steam-It can be used in an upside down position, which is great for so many of the non-mopping uses.

Seriously -- it kind of looks like a weapon, doesn't it?

 

It even made my shower cry! (Or, you know, something like that.)

While the first cleaning didn’t get my grout sparkling white all over (it was really bad to start with, that’s not the Steam-It’s fault), it made such a huge improvement!  When I showered the next time after cleaning, I was shocked when I pushed back the shower curtain.  Not every inch was sparkling white, but most of it was.  With a second cleaning, I would fully expect it to be completely clean.  (Yeah, I’ll admit it, I haven’t done a second cleaning of the shower with the Steam-It.  But, I am sure that I’m not going to ignore the grout any longer.  It was actually kind of fun cleaning it with the Steam-It.)

I’m really thrilled with our Oreck Steam-It Steam Mop!  I love that it’s well made and so versatile.  I can see us using this for many years to come.

Now, here’s the extra fun part — I get to give one of these awesome Steam-It steam mops away, which retails for $179.99. (Even if you don’t think you need one of these, you probably do.  But, if you really, really think you don’t need it, think about what an awesome Christmas gift this could be!)
