A couple of weeks ago my son-in-law bought a Shark steam mop and when I saw what a good job it did on their hardwood floors I’d been wanting to get one for our home. A little story about my SIL: he is a wonderful helper around the house for my daughter and he thinks he’s the only one who can mop “right”…..to which she just says “go for it”!
So I did some research on different steam mops and settled on the Shark Pro Steam Pocket Mop+. It has 3 steam settings and I wanted the option of having different levels of steam.
When I used it on my kitchen floor I was shocked at how much dirt it picked up. I had just mopped about a week ago so you can see how much dirt is not picked up by a regular mop.
I can’t believe I’m showing you how nasty my floors were but it’s amazing how much dirt is not picked up by regular mopping.
Another little cleaning tool I recently picked up is this microfiber cleaning glove.
I love that I can just slip it on and run my hand over my furniture without getting out a polishing cloth….I just squirt my furniture polish oil (I like the oil better than the spray) on the glove and wipe away! I got this in Wal Mart.
And on a much different subject, tomorrow I’m taking my chair to the upholstery lady to have it covered in my vintage grain sack! I have debated about painting and distressing the chair or leaving the wood as is. When I saw the photo below I knew I wanted to leave the wood….since my chair is almost identical.
I’m not sure if I’m going to use the same grain sack fabric for the seat of the chair since it’s somewhat scratchy….I bought some black linen to use in case I don’t have enough of the grain sack left to use for the seat. This is the beginning of my den makeover!
