after using the Shark Euro Pro Steamer

1. While effective on new grease, it is somewhat ineffective on old grease. If you don't know what old grease is, you have no problem.

2. I'm going to have to invest in some microfiber towels. Any suggestions? Cleaning up the filthy, sludge-ridden, germ-infested water with rags is not working well. I need something super absorbent.

3. My minuscule upstairs hallway is not dirty. It needs painting. And I am in denial.

4. I think I might want to still use chemicals on my toilets.

5. There is no reason to use the Shark Euro Pro to clean out the cap of the toothpaste. And cleaning all those teeny blue flecks off the wall after you do is just a time suck.

6. It's probably too small to do a floor.

7. Middle is perfectly willing to use it.

8. I am looking forward to going at my washer and dryer with it.

9. It comes with an adorable little duffel bag to store it in. Or to travel with!

10. No matter how tempted you are, DO NOT use it on windows if it is below freezing outside.

11. It made quick work of the complicated light fixture in the upstairs bathroom. I had no idea how I would clean it, and it did very well. Now if it could just change the light bulb.

I am relieved. It seems The Euro Pro Blah Blah Blah is working pretty fine.
Can you bring it here for Saturday? I have 12 people over for dinner tomorrow night.
I am screwed. Am I not.

I'm really wondering how you thought to attack the cap on the toothpaste...

My assvice for old grease stains:
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser

Best. Invention. Ever.
I love the bathroom light. Is that from the MOMA store? I'm trying to talk Pete into it, yet his mind remains unchanged.

Our microfiber cloths (used 'em for years and they still look new) are from Ontel

I got them for my sil one Christmas and I clutched them to my bosom with glee while the rest of the family looked at me with furrowed brows.

What is that in the bottles? Sand? Very pretty...

My mom bought a generic version of the Shark once and it didn't work at all.

Can I schedule an appointment for Middle to come to my house?

So funny: attacking the toothpaste cap and Middle is willing to use it.

And: Oh no! what happened to the windows?

"Teeny blue flecks on the walls" - I'm laughing WITH you, not AT you. Really.

Love that fixture. MUST HAVE IT. Also, we use these yellow microfiber towels from Costco. They ROCK.

The thing about the toilets is, and perhaps I am not understanding how the Shark works (yar!), but who exactly would want to stand anywhere near the steam/spray from THOSE? I mean, even a scrub brush with too much force can require a surgical suit...

I still think I want one, though.

Loved it the first time I saw it, but NOW, am obsessed: MUST still your beach sand in the jar display idea for my own house!

Hey - you could use it to clean that weird dust collecting shelf-like space above your shower (at least I think that was where it was)
Heidi said…
You can buy a LARGE package of microfiber towels at Costco for a great price.

What a lovely lovely row of bottles with neutral colored--what? bath salts? A nice niche, anyway, above the window.
yes like others I am ridiculously taken with your upstairs bathroom with its gorgeous light and ? sand in jars.

The cleaning of it was my only hesitation of True Love of your bathroom light fixture. I had not thought about changing the light bulb. We still have the butt-ugly light fixtures foisted upon us by the builder. Maybe we'll change them out when we redo the flooring. If only money were no object ....

Could you please, please, please post more pictures of that bathroom!?

Oh, silly me! I found more.. I'm in love with your bathroom. Is that weird?
