Spring cleaning time - as autumn heads in

Groovy Mama has got her hands on the new Black & Decker steam mop. But will it really make housework a dream?




 1 of 2 

ISN'T IT A bore how housework somehow puts a dampener on the day? Well, maybe you are one of those creatures, like Monica out of Friends, who is never happier than when donning a pair of Marigolds and getting stuck into the housework. Not so, Groovy Mama. Personally, I can always find other ways to enjoy my days.

However, I was intrigued to hear about a new Black & Decker Steam Mop that promises to make swift work of mucky floors. To put the appliance thoroughly through its paces, I even allowed the children to trample their muddy festival boots across my wooden floors.  And here's the real beauty - as the name suggests, The Steamer cleans with steam (and gives a very nicely satisfying noise as whizzes along) so there's no need for harsh chemicals – the heat does all the work. It has a handy little knob to turn, with an easy-to-discern dial (ie, with a picture of a wooden floor, marble or laminate) so the dimwits know which level of heat to use – the makers call it "Autoselect technology”. And, as a nod to aesthetics, the guage gives off a gorgeous blue glow when it's ready to use.

The verdict: The Steam Mop is quick and easy to use (thought of course you do have to sweep up first – what I really want is a magic sweeper, too, or children that don't molt – otherwise your mop head will get very mucky). It moves smoothly, though some stains may take a few attempts to shift. Compact style; lightweight to use, with moveable handle and an effective and quick solution for dirty floors.

Not only are these mops expensive and all but they're relatively better for those who have enough time. Those commercial cleaning services helped me out getting my offices clean and shiny.

Autumn's really a messy time for everyone, and any vacuum cleaner could help. The hepa vacuum cleaner's got impressive suction power and it cleans everything so quickly and efficiently.
