    Default Floor steamer for kitchen

    I had put off getting a floor steamer because it just seemed like another
    gadget we didn't need. But recently I have been finding kitchen spills that
    have hardened. I don't know what they are but one looked like a bit of
    melted cheese. The mop just wasn't cutting it any more.

    I got an inexpensive steamer. Took those spills right away! Wish I had
    gotten one sooner.

    If the spill is hardened, just pour a little water on it and let it
    sit for a minute, and it will usually come up pretty easily. If there
    is still some that won't come up, a hard plastic spatula will usually
    get it up.

    But then you still have to mop. No need to mop with this.

    I got a Haan about 2 years ago and an extra mopping pad and have been
    very pleased with the results. Floor is almost dry as soon as you
    move the steaming head to another area.

    wipe up the spill as soon as it happens.

    Maybe a wet rag or a dog(*) would have solved your problem. Spills
    don't usually harden. And ... cheese?

    -sw

    (*) Dog intolerance?

    I do. But the others who live here do not. That's the problem.

    I am not always here and when I come back, invariably something is hardened
    on the floor. There was black stuff that felt and looked like a smashed
    date. Like a raisin but bigger. No clue what that was since we have
    neither in the house.

    I have a steamer and it is pretty handy. It blows that caked on dirt
    away with no problem. We have interior stucco walls upstairs and one out
    our dogs use to nest in a corner and over the years it got prtty grungy.
    The steamer took car of that grime. It is also great for cleaning the
    toilet. We have well water which is quite hard and carries a bit of fine
    sand in it that stains the toilet. I used it last hear to clean out
    those little holes around the top of the toilet bowl, and that larger
    hole at the bottom. Just plunge the water out of the bowl to get that
    hole exposed and run the steamer around it and the stain comes right
    off. Just a word of caution.... you want to be cleaning the toilet
    first because if it is fecal matter you are applying the steam to it is
    going to be stinking a lot as it flies around.

    Luckily we have soft water and the toilets aren't hard to clean.

    But...

    Our cat box is near the shower and there is often a mess on the floor from
    where some water came out of the shower, usually as the person is stepping
    out and dripped on some loose litter on the floor. That makes for a gunky
    mess! I had been using a car window ice scraper to get it up. I'm sure the
    steamer will work nicely for that when it happens.

    Since nobody will admit to have made the mess, that doesn't work.
