Another Hard Worker
This is a very new thing, I've had it less than a week, but I'm growing to love it. It's a steam cleaner. I've been talking about getting one for ages, in fact I say it every single time I clean out the bunny pen, finally I prioritised it and here we are. I went for this one as there were some decent reviews and it wasn't too expensive. It's mainly to clean the bunny pen, as I'm always wary about using too many chemicals with them around, but I do intend to use it for other things.
Conveniently there are all manner of nozzles and accessories for things like grout cleaning, a pointy thing to direct the steam, a window thing, a small thing for fabric and coloured brushes so you can use a specific brush for a specific job - great if you have something like a pet area to clean.
So far I have done the worktops, sink and draining board in the kitchen, the bathroom sink and a bit of the grout, the blinds and window frames in the bedroom, the mattress topper in the bedroom and a few other things. I like it. It doesn't do they work for you (as some disappointed reviewers complain!) but it does remove lots of the scrubbing and plenty of rinsing.
I really like it, and while it's not an essential, for some of the harder jobs I do at home I know it will be a great help.
A while ago I mentioned that we'd tried Sainsbury's basics toothpaste, the reviews are in and we rather like it! It's nowhere near as minty as other toothpastes, which is a bonus for me. I checked the ingredients and there wasn't too much difference between it and the normal range, other than the minty content. A winner for me.
