You’ve been a good helper, but you are being replaced.

I hate to say it but my daily steamer has been forced into retirement.  Taken off today with other items my husband had loaded in the truck for our city’s trash clean-up day.  It has been a loyal companion in my home for many years.  Almost a year ago it wouldn’t shut off unless I unplugged it but I refused to toss it out.  A few weeks ago, when I poured water into the tank, it leaked out onto the floor. It was time to be replaced.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved it and even it’s ugly yellow and gray color so long as it got the surface dirt off my floors.  Today it is being replaced!  By a newer model in a much more soothing color.

My floors are getting a once over with my new steamer and next week when my energy level is up I will pull out the big guns and do a thorough scrubbing of the tiles.

So, here is my new companion.  Isn’t she pretty?

I have mentioned in past posts about my more “heavy duty” cleaners.   I use the Koblenz for deep scrubbing on my tile floors (Why did I ever agree to tile with so many little pits and crevices in it?).    I also use the machine that ozinates ordinary tap water into a powerful cleaner.

Have any of you used this cleaner or other steam cleaners for your hard surface flooring?

  1. A beauty! I love new household appliances!

  2. It’s always hard to get rid of an old friend. The newer models never seem to work as well, the directions are harder to understand, and they never seem as user-friendly as the old one. Of course, there is a distinct possibility it might be the operator who no longer works as well, can’t see the tiny print, or get easily upset because the machine can’t read her mind to know what to do. 🙂

  3. LOVE MINE— COULD NOT DO WITH OUT IT– USE IT ON ALL MY FLOORS BUT THE HARDWOOD ONES!! EVEN USED IT ON THE OUTDOOR CARPET ON THE BACK PATIO!! THIS IS OUR 2ND OR 3 ONE– BUT I’M LIKE QUIRKYWRITINGCORNER– EACH NEW ONE IS HARDER TO OPERATE!!! 😉

  4. Too cute! I want one! 🙂
