This post is in collaboration with Kärcher.
I should warn you, that this post is going to make us look like the complete dirty slobs (and the worst part – it’s all true).
With so much DIY and building work going on around here, it’s inevitable that we’re always faced with a lot of mess and cleaning, too. And out of everything we do around here, I’m the first to admit, that cleaning is by far my least favourite part of any project.
Don’t get me wrong, I love a clean and tidy house, but actually getting to that point is something that’s really not on my list of things I like to do. Knocking down a wall is just so much more fun than cleaning away sticky brick dust for hours on end.
I guess we all have cleaning tasks that we hate more than others, for some people it’s ironing, for Jan it’s well, everything and for me it’s wiping floors, so when Kärcher kindly offered to send us a steam stick to review, we of course jumped at the chance – after all we’ll try anything to make life just a bit easier, right?
One of the very first products we bought when we moved into our home was a Kärcher pressure washer (which we love) so I’ll totally admit, that we had high hopes for this steam cleaner – and luckily we weren’t disappointed!
It works so well that makes us look like complete slobs. Yes, of course we clean our floors every now and then, but you’d never know it by looking at this cloth (warning, it’s not pretty) after going over our floor with the Kärcher steam stick.
I can’t believe how much dirt came up from the floor! To say that it’s disgusting and looks like we’ve never cleaned is probably a bit of an understatement.
We love how easy the steam stick is to use. Just fill it with water, turn it on and after just 3 minutes it’s ready to use. Compared to our old mop and bucket it’s so simple, so much quicker and as you can see, obviously so much more effective, too!
When we test products, we like to be as thorough as possible and our floor infront of the cellar was worse than ever before – perfect to put the steam stick through it’s paces.
The difference after less than a minute of cleaning is amazing!
The Kärcher Steam Stick itself, is a really nifty little gadget. It comes with a selection of attachments for cleaning various surfaces. I particularly love that the power cord is really long, which makes it great to navigate through our house without having to find a new power socket at every corner.
If you’d not already guessed, we love it. It’s so easy, quick and effective to use – what more could you want. I guess we don’t have any more excuses for a dirty home. Needless to say, this nifty little gadget is going to get a lot of use around here.
Do you hate mopping floors as much as I do? What household task do you hate most? Do you have a gadget that you love and makes your life easier?
