I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Shark Premium Portable Steam Pocket
Just kidding. But it’s true. Remember way back in September when I visited New York to learn about the new Ninja Master Prep? Remember me telling you that while I was there I was also introduced to some other cool new products from Euro-Pro (like the UltraLite Multi-Vac)? Well the Portable Steamer was another one of the cool products I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to try out. And I have been putting it to the test.
The Portable Steamer comes with several different attachments, which means you can use it just about everywhere in your home. There are dusting attachments, a garment steamer thing, a large surface pocket and thinner “wands.” I have used my steamer in the kitchen, the bathroom, the living room and my hallways.
I was able to use the large pocket attachment and steam clean all the grime left on my hallway walls from the boys. It was amazing! I had forgotten that my walls were actually white. I also regularly use my steamer in the boys’ bathroom. I have three little boys who don’t always “aim” properly (if you know what I mean). That bathroom was plagued with a disgusting urine smell that I could not bleach away. Now, with my portable steamer cleaning the surfaces of the toilet, counters and bathtub and my Steam Pocket Mop steaming the floor…that bathroom doesn’t stink anymore! And my very favorite part is that I used no bleach, no chemicals of any kind.
I used my steamer to clean my cupboards (this is not me in the pic), clean my stove, my oak coffee table that had spilled milk dried onto it, my dining room table. You get the idea? I cleaned everything. It comes with several different microfiber pads that can be washed and reused.
No throw away pads.
The only thing I wouldn’t recommend cleaning is your ceiling fans. I made the mistake of cleaning them with my steamer before I dusted them. I ended up with lots of MUD! So if you do steam your fans, dust them off first. Unless of course, your fans are not already disgustingly covered in dust to begin with.
The attachments are very easy to switch out, too. So you can go from cleaning one surface to another without much fuss. The thing you do need to be aware of is that there are a lot of attachments. This little power machine does a ton of stuff. I ended up storing all of my parts in the box because I didn’t have anywhere better to keep it all together.
So if you are looking for a great gift for someone that has it all, has allergies, or is trying to clean with less chemicals, then this is the perfect item. It retails for $99.00 and is available online at SharkClean.com as well as many stores nation wide.
