Soapbox Saturday - Black and Decker Steam Mop Review and GIVEAWAY!

A couple of months ago I was contacted by Black and Decker and asked if I'd like to review their Steam Mop.  I've never had a steam mop, but my sisters have raved about them so I was excited to try it out.  I received the mop for free, with no other compensation.  The opinions are all mine.


Here's what we liked:

- You turn on the mop and it only takes 15 seconds until it's ready to roll.  (Plus, my kids love how it lights up when it's ready :)


- The swiveling head makes it easy to maneuver around corners.  It's not very tall, so it's also easy to get underneath things with it.  (Hmmm...just like my kids.)


- It only uses water.  I like not needing soap or products with chemicals.  It kills 99.9% of germs with just water.  Sweet.

- It uses little water.  I had envisioned not liking the mop because I thought the floors would get really wet.  The mop just uses a little steam and it evaporates really quickly - a lot faster than my regular mop.


- It comes with more than one pad so you always have one when the other is in the laundry.  Nice.  They are also easy to remove and throw in the wash.

What I didn't like:

- It still takes some work to get the really dirty spots off.  I thought the steam would almost magically remove the dirt, but you still do have to go over the dirty spots a few times.

- Steam mops are okay for "sealed hardwood floors," but to be honest, I'm not sure if ours are sealed or not so I'm sticking to the tiled areas for now.


Overall, we give the Black and Decker Steam Mop two thumbs up.  Now, who wants to win one?

You can enter only ONCE by leaving a comment here about the biggest mess you ever had to clean up.  (No need to get too graphic in your descriptions :)  Please include your email address is your profile isn't linked to it.  That way I can contact you if you win.

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED.
You can read more about the Steam Mop HERE and you can find Black and Decker on facebook HERE.
Thanks for dropping in.

  3. We really don't have a lot of messes here (I thrive on cleanliness)... but we finally tackled our master bedroom a few weeks ago (and closet) and that was pretty much not fun. We seem to just put everything in there like a permanent junk spot. It feels great to have it clean now though!!

  6. It's hard to choose--I make a big mess on a regular basis! I guess I would have to say the biggest mess is always my sewing room at the end of prom season.

  8. When my daughter got sick and threw up from the front room all the way to the bathroom in the back of our house. Yeah...that was bad.

  9. Ahh, the day the toddler found the plastic container filled with dozens of little acrilic paint containers and glitter. I still find glitter in random places and we've even moved since then.

  10. Hmm, the biggest mess I had to clean up was when my daughter got into some bright blue fingernail polish and got it in the carpet, on the wall and some furniture :\ Anyways, I would love to win this steam mop!

  11. When my husband and I were newly married, our friends were having their wedding reception at my parents house. The day before my husband was making a red kool-aid slushie in the blender and forgot to put the lid on. That red stained everything!!! lol.
    My mom was already stressed about keeping the house perfect, so we tried to clean it up before she could find it. We thought we did a pretty good job, but she still found some red stains. Sorry Mom. None of the guests noticed.

  12. The biggest mess I can remember was when my hubby broke a bottle of soy sauce in the fridge. Of course, he wiped up a few spots, but he did not deep clean it. Months later when I cleaned the fridge, I found soy sauce EVERYWHERE - under the produce drawers, on the underside of shelves, etc. And it was super stuck on and icky. That took a lot of work to clean off.

  13. I would love to win this. We're getting ready to move into an apartment with all tile floors. This would be great. The biggest mess I've had to clean up was probably when the shelf on our fridge door broke. Everything fell & several glass bottles broke - glass and food all over the fridge and floor.

  14. What a great giveaway -- thanks! As far as my biggest mess: three kids under 6 + stomach flu + one bathroom. It was a really, really rough few days!

  15. Spaghetti EVERYWHERE...and we don't have kids HA!

  16. I would love to try this mop! My biggest mess was recently actually. I got home from a trip to the grocery store and was trying to fit a new gallon of milk in my refrigerator. The 1/2 full bottle already in my frig fell out and poured all of the floor. I quickly put the new one in the frig and cleaned up the mess. The next time I open the frig, the new one fell out, busted a hole in the side and poured all over the floor. I wanted to walk away and leave the mess but I cleaned it up. Later that day, the floor was still sticky and had to be cleaned again! Crazy mess!

    ReplyDelete
  17. This looks great!!! The biggest mess....I would have to say it was when my 2 year old got into the fireplace that hadn't been cleaned out. Ash and soot was every where!! It amazes me how 20seconds of them "playing" can create HOURS of work for me! Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Not that a mop would have helped with this day, but my worst mess day was the day when I got thrown up on, spit up on, and pooped on, all in one day. Gotta love motherhood!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm not including bodily fluid messes because I just really don't want to re-live them. ;) My worst mess was when my 2 year old climbed into the kitchen cabinet and dumped out an entire thing of Nesquik and an entire bag of powdered sugar. It was EVERYWHERE!

    ReplyDelete
  20. A few years ago I was cleaning out the refrigerator. I dropped a big glass jar of applesauce and being completely flustered, then dropped a glass jar of syrup into the mess. I had glass from two broken bottles, applesauce, and syrup everywhere. The big jar chipped my kitchen tile when it fell. Months later I was still finding applesauce splatter in random places. Horrible mess!

    ReplyDelete
  21. It all started one dark and gloomy night...

    Not really. But my youngest boy had the strangest vomit fest ever. One of those that after you clean up and the boy is sleeping, you high five your husband because it was really cool!

    ReplyDelete
  22. We dropped a bottle of liquid laundry soap on the ground- talk about hard to clean up! It just kept getting soapier and soapier!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. One of the biggest messes i have had to clean up was an exploded baby diaper and dropped spaghetti dinner!! I would love a steam mop. With 2 little boys lots of fun messes to clean!!

  25. Just yesterday I was trying to make couscous. First I dumped the box of couscous all over the stove and floor. After that was all picked up, the water and spice packet boiled all over the stove and floor. I'm not sure it was my biggest mess ever, but it certainly was one of the most frustrating!

  26. I once spilled Mod Podge through a crack in the counter (it was new and still needed to be connected) into our silverware drawer... but didn't realize I had done it until hours later when it was already dry. It's definitely not the grossest mess I've had to clean, but it was a pain!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Our biggest mess would have to have been when my oldest son thought he would help us paint. He went into his room and got his paint and painted the floors while we were in the other room! We have 2 boys also so there is ALWAYS a mess somewhere. Also, we have tile through the entire house so this would make cleaning a lot easier. Thanks for all of your great ideas.
    PS yesterday we made the "Momma's gonna snap" shirts. They are too cute!

  28. the biggest mess I ever had to clean was about 11 years ago when I about 18 or 19 years old and I worked at Rite Aid. A little girl came in and had asked to use the bathroom. She looked like she really needed to go so I said yes, told her where to find it and went about my way. My boss came back later and told me that the bathroom was the biggest worst mess she had ever seen This poor little girl had wiped her ......"stuff" all over the walls, floors, faucet, toilet set , EVERYWHERE!! My boss then said that she would do my job if I cleaned the bathroom because no one who touch it. Sorry if it was graphic, however that was the biggest mess I have ever had to clean and I now have kids...i have seen some messes.

  29. Biggest mess....Umm....Once I dropped a whole dish of fudge I was placing in the fridge to set. Chocolate everywhere.

  32. The biggest mess I ever had to clean was when I dropped a bottle of cooking oil all over the kitchen floor. Oil is really hard to clean off.

  33. We have some messes around here but the most recent one was me dropping a full bottle of cranberry juice while putting away groceries and it exposed all over the floor, cabinets, walls, and my new kitchen rug that I had just bought! Great giveaway!

  34. Our worst mess was when our dog got a stomach bug. I'll spare you the gory details--it wasn't pretty!

  35. I guess our worst mess was when a bunch of eggs hit the deck! What a mess to clean up! Would love the mop!

  36. Worst mess ever was our dog + plate of double chocolate chip cookies. Yuck! Would have killed to have had hardwoods instead of carpet at the time. : ) PS my Saturday project today is Upcycled Boy Hats...I'm so excited!!!

  37. I have 3 boys under 7, enough said! My life is a constant mess. Besides bodily fluids the worst mess: I was pregnant with my 3rd son and I decided to start a cookie business from home. It was the holidays so I had lots of orders to fill. I had a HUGe rubbermaid storage container full of powdered sugar, I ran to the bathroom for no more than 30 seconds, when I came out my 2 and 3 year old were covered from head to toe in powdered sugar. They had gotten inside the storage container and covered themselves, the floors, the counters and smeared it on the walls. It took me hours and my trusty Dyson to clean it up. I have a steam mop and I love it! Cleaned up the powdered sugar no problem!

  38. With three little ones I constantly have big messes to clean up, especially in the kitchen. My two year old loves to take things out of the fridge but frequently drops them on the floor and they spill and splash everywhere.

  39. I'd love to win! The biggest mess I've cleaned was a "baby blow out". Enough said.

  40. I would LOVE to win one of these! We live in Army post housing and have the ugliest grocery store floors. The biggest mess I ever had to clean involved one of my older children, their crib and a poopy diaper. I'll let you imagine that one. ;) But with three kids and two dogs my floors get messy often.

  41. This would be great for apartment living. So little space!

    The biggest mess I have ever cleaned up was helping my parents remove bat guano from their building. About 300 pounds, and it smelled.

    ReplyDelete
  42. One time, one of my second graders handed me their glue because they needed help getting it "unstuck." I did not realize it was a new bottle so it apparently had a "seal" that happened to look just like dried glue. For some reason, I thought SQUEEZING the bottle was a good idea. The seal broke and a FOUNTAIN of glue squirted out! It scared the be-geez-us out of me! I'm so glad I didn't let a dirty word slip out. Haha...there was glue on the CEILING and even some in my hair! It makes for a pretty funny story now but it sure was a MESS at the time!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh I want one! Pick me, pick me! lol. So I don't know what would be considered bad since I have 3 kids and 2 dogs. Vomit? Red juice that stains the grout? Spilt grease can? I can go on and on.
    Thanks for the chance.

  45. the biggest mess i had to clean up was the gallon of milk i dropped on the floor one day :) that was fun.

  46. You said not too graphic. But let's just say our labrador had an upset stomach and I didnt see the disaster until both my boths were downstairs amongst the mess. IT WAS GROSS.

    PICK ME! My hardwoods and lab and boys will thank you! hgalavan@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  47. We have a Great Dane. Let's just say Great Dane + upset stomach + me not getting up to let her out in the middle of the night when she asked = one HUGE mess on my hardwood floor! That stuff had splattered everywhere! I felt really bad for her because she is normally a prissy dog who doen't like for stuff to be dirty.

    ReplyDelete
  48. STEAM MOP!!! SO GREAT!!! I have two small people (4 and 1) and we had beets for dinner last night. Do I really have to elaborate?? My floors are pink. It's not okay.

    ReplyDelete
  49. The two biggest messes I can think of off the top of my head both involve a crib, a sick child, and mess ALL over... and I mean all over. Best part? They're not even MY children!

  52. My 2yr old is now able to open the door to the fridge. While I was upstairs, he took it upon himself to get a drink. From upstairs I hear "uh oh Mommy, this a big mess." By the time I got downstairs all of the Hawaiian Punch (the larger container) that he was attempting to serve himself was all over the kitchen floor, cabinets, and him. It took me nearly an hour and a half to clean it all up. We now have a lock on the door.

  53. Thanks for the great review! I'm in the midst of potty training my 2.5yo son, so all of my messes lately involve that...yuck! Poo in the undies is much harder to clean up than the diaper. Glad he is turning the corner and figuring out the potty!!

  55. Awesome Giveaway!! The worst mess happened when I had first started to decorate cakes and honestly didn't really know a lot and wasn't very sure of my self, with good reason apparently.
    I tried to be Duff Goldman and move my cake, two tiers, after it was iced with only a little cardboard cake circle under it. BAD IDEA!! The board buckled and the entire cake went all over the counter, the floor and me. Then just because I was ... lets just say mad, I smashed it a few good times with my hands. Then I laughed, took a picture, and realized I had to deliver that cake in a few hours! So I had to re-bake and re-decorated the entire thing in half the time.
    Needless to say - Lesson learned! :)

  56. My worst mess was when I was carrying a bowl of chili to the table (carpeted dining area), and tripped. Oh yea, chili and pride everywhere. It was a horrible mess from the dining area to the kitchen. After my husband was done laughing he helped clean it up.

  57. Never had a steam mop...I've been looking at the Shark ones...
    Biggest mess I've ever cleaned was when my son sprayed an entire bottle (or close to a whole bottle) or spay sunscreen in my dining/kitchen. Do you know how greasy that stuff is? ARGH! Let's just say he won't be doin that again!

    ReplyDelete
  58. We own a cabin, that we rent and I use this Black and Decker Steam Mop to clean the floors and I used it to death, actual death. I need a new one so I am not on my hands and knees! The worst mess, was someone who rented our cabin ate sunflower seeds and they were on the floors, in the gargabe cans, in the beds, on the couches - ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  59. A full gallon of milk, all over the kitchen. I hate milk so it was all I could force myself to do to clean that up! Great giveaway!

  60. W/out graphics? Hmmm.. Ok. I've got two dogs, big. I like to take them to my grahamcracker's house to run in her backyard. She has a compost heap that she puts EVERYTHING in... Didn't think abt that. Well, apparently before we had arrived she had just dumped a huge pile of homemade, leftover soup and beans that had expired in her fridge. Made w/ virtually an entire ham, unbenounced to me (or anyone) they devoured the ENTIRE pile! Do u know what beans does to a dog? ~ Esp dogs that NEVER get any food other than dried dog food. Let's just say that night.... WALLS were sprayed. They typically sleep soundly in their kennel. Sigh, it lasted for 4 days! Like a water sprinkler... OH! And my favorite part, it snowed the next day. Too cold to just keep them outside. That's when I found out chicken noodle soup wasn't just good for humans.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Not sure that the mop would help with this one, but my little guy tossed his cookies...in the car. All over his car seat, over the edge and into the carpet, and even down in the crevices of the actual seat. Oh, the smell!

    ReplyDelete
  62. The biggest mess? That is a toughie, there was the bacon grease fiasco, and the time 64 oz of hot coco spilled on the carpet, but I think the biggest mess I ever had to clean up was the bathroom after we left our house for 9 months with a sitter and he never cleaned the tub once. Gross.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Our biggest mess would be when my three year old squeezed out the syrup container all over our hardwoods in the kitchen. Talk about a MESS! I would love to try one of these out. Thanks!

  67. I know there are bigger ones, but one that comes to mind is when my oldest 2 were toddlers, they got into my 5 gallon bucket of flour and spread it all over themselves, and my kitchen floor.

  68. All of my kids have horrible reflux when they are born, so I think the worst mess I've ever had to clean up is constant barf!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. we always have a mess but the worst ones are the ones you can't see real well but leave you stuck to the floor - i hate stickiness (and this is why my children will never know how good a pancake can be with syrup on it).

    could really use a steam mop!

  72. I think my biggest mess came from working on dinner one night. I was heating up tomato sauce and I got distracted. Meanwhile, it started boiling and spattering the stove top, wall, and ceiling.

  73. My biggest mess involved a toddler potty training, some pooh and my entire bathroom... use your imagination. Nothing is off limits when you have home made fingerpaints... eeeewwww.

    I'm a big fan of the steam mop. I love the idea of short cut cleaning. Sign me up please!

  74. The biggest mess that I have had to clean up is a Pineapple Upside Down cake that just slide off the plate and into the floor. Our floor was sticky for months and I mopped it everyday.

  75. Lots of messes are cleaned up in this house, like when I found my daughter making snow angels with a gallon box of potato flakes after she threw it all up in the air to make it snow. It was an easy clean up, though.

    The messiest story my friend told me: her 18 month old triplets and a gallon of vegetable oil!

  76. Woah, lots of comments already! Anyway, I'd love to win one. Probably the biggest mess I ever had to clean up was the infamous "peanut butter mess" of 2010. My 2 year old got into a brand new jar of Jiff just days after I'd opened it. He painted himself, the cabinets, the chairs, the walls, and the stairs with peanut butter. Best of all, I got video of it with a little "you're in trouble" post-mess interview. Ah, kids!

  80. Biggest mess? Not my husband or the kids....not even something I did. Our Lab ate something that didn't agree with him..at ALL. He wound up having it and 3 feet of intestine removed. I wound up cleaning up messes from both ends and as we all know..that NEVER happens outside and NEVER happens just once.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I doubt this is the "worst" mess I've ever had, but my most memorable was being 30 mo. pregnant... ok, maybe it only felt like I was 30 mo, but I was very pregnant, and was making oatmeal for my (then) 1 year old one of my favorite vintage pyrex bowls. I dropped the dish, it shattered and there was glass and oatmeal everywear, plus a hungry toddler running mad. I quickly gave up trying to clean it and called my sister in tears. Thank God for sisters, she came over and cleaned it up for me. :)

  82. My little man wasn't feeling good, and he had a peanut butter granola bar and red koolaid... my carpet is still pinkish! But I'd love to use this instead of my swiffer!

  83. Well. I had to clean up several messes yesterday. I will just mention the worst of those. My little girl got sick all over the blanket I was using as a cover for me. Fortunately just the blanket got messy and nothing else, until we made it to the bathroom.

    ReplyDelete
  84. This one goes under WHAT WERE THEY THINKING. Our yellow lab had surgery and the specialists insisted that we keep tubes in his side that would drain the area (of course if things can get out things can get in right, yikes) So our poor dog went around with two tubes into his body that leaked, well we'll leave that to the imagination, constantly so what the t-shirt we changed every hour didn't catch I had to. We had two kiddos under 4 at the time and I was pregnant with our third so it was super important to keep the 'leakage' cleaned up. It's been several years now and I still can't laugh about it.....maybe someday! Love your blog! Thanks for all your hard work!

  85. Oh poor dog Sadie has a sensitive stomach... this sometimes leads to well BIG messes. Thankfully it usually ends up in our kitchen and not on the carpet but YUCK nonetheless.

  86. Hmmmm...biggest mess...I'd have to say when the kids used sharpie to "decorate" their bedroom walls. It was more of a painting situation rather than cleaning. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  87. O my! What a fun comment section. So, I was Cat sitting for a friend, and the two cats got into their medicine. To fix the situation I had to give them peroxide and make them regurgitate. EK! They threw up for 2 days, so I just kept cleaning.

  88. The biggest mess I had to clean up was at work when I dropped a FULL water-cooler bottle on the tile floor and it shattered. I completely flooded the kitchen! Definitely needed more than a steam mom to clean it up!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I guess when he dropped his glass of milk. It was everywhere even on the walls. Did you know milk stains walls? I had to paint over it!

    ReplyDelete
  90. When my toddler decided to take a poopy diaper change into his own hands while he was supposed to be napping. Enough said.

  91. ooo! so my husband works for the morgue...and he has to leave to pick up people in all hours of the night. lets just say the car still smells like a body he picked up a week or two ago after we cleaned it with clorox!! ;/ heelllppp!!!

  94. My biggest mess has been my new house! No one had lived here for 2 1/2 years but a lot of the previous owner's stuff was left inside...So we had a lot of work to do! And we have ALL hardwood/tile floors...so this would be amazing to have!!!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Many years ago we hosted a Mexican themed shower for some friends. We were too tired to clean up at parties end so we left it until the morning. Woke up to find my 3 yr old son "painting" guacamole & salsa on the dining room walls! BIG MESS! And yes, he lived to tell the tale (he's 25 now!)

    ReplyDelete
  96. We have lots of big messes around here, but I think the place that would benefit most from this steam mop would be the floor in my salon. All that dried on hair product stuck to the floor. So hard to get clean.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Definitely when a brand new plastic bottle is syrup cracked wide open on the kitchen floor. It was everywhere, including under the fridge. What a sticky mess. Great giveaway.

  98. With two little boys we have had our fair share of bathroom messes(boys are gross). I wont go into too much detail, but having a way to clean up after them without the chemicals would be great.

  101. It would have to be the time I was babysitting my cousins. I came out of the bathroom and the two of them approx. 2 and 3 years old had gotten into the chocolate chips! They were melted in every crevice imaginable and all over the floor! The steam mop would have been great for the floor....but you can't exactly steam mop a baby! =)

So far the biggest mess I had to clean up was when my year and a half old son went into one of our cupboards and pooped(we didn't know this) and when that eerie quiet fell we found him in there with poop smeared all over him and the cupboard. It was not fun...hopefully we won't have to experience this with our little girl :D

  105. My biggest mess was brought on by one of my dogs knocking over the trashcan right after we left the house for the day. They ate something that made both of them very sick. Living room, dining room, kitchen, hallway... every room on the first floor of the house was "affected." And then we were out all day. What a surprise to come home to!!!

  106. Easy enough for me... I left for work one day and had to put our blue heeler in the master bathroom as usual.. well, maintenance came in to fix our toilet & let her out. She and our cat had tore up 12 rolls of toilet paper to shreds (in every room), she ate cd's, a cranium game, and 3 remote controls. Chewed holes in the carpet and peed and pooped at least once in every room!! I came home to ground zero! Let's just say our deposit wasn't returned. Now with the twins I'm scared to see what may happen if I turn my back!

  108. I would love to win one, my shark steam mop just died the other day! The biggest mess I've ever had to clean up was when my maltese poodle ran away and rolled in every grass pile he could find. I spent hours brushing out every stinking piece of grass, it was awful!

  112. I once had three large dogs rip open a bag of dry cement colorant and then run through the house. I think we were cleaning up that mess until we sold the house. Every time I mopped the stairs the water turned pink (it was red dye).

  113. The biggest mess? Last night! When my 19 month old peed on my leg and foot and ultimately the floor when I was preparing to bathe him. :-) I guess hearing the water run got him going. -- does that count as a big mess? Otherwise, I clean around his highchair daily as I'm trying to encourage him to eat on his own. I'm down on the floor with a wet paper towel mopping up the crumbs/mess. I (or rather, my back ) would LOVE for a steam mop to do this instead! Thank you for this opportunity.

  114. No graphic details? Hmm, let's just say, 10 year old boy on the top bunk, 1 am, throw-up, 2 days after bringing home our newborn baby girl. Hubby cleaned up so I could rest and deal with the baby and I was surprised to wake up to find him still cleaning at 7 AM!

  116. In college my roommate and I carved pumpkins for Halloween, left them in our dorm room, and went home for the weekend. We returned to a rotted pumpkin mess all over the carpet. We scrubbed the carpet for days and days, then once a week till the end of the year. Then prayed no one would notice when they checked our room for damage before we left.

    A steam mop probably wouldn't have helped that - I don't think anything would have!

  122. The biggest mess was many years ago when I had 4 kids and my sister with 4 kids came for a vacation visit. All the kids are about the same ages so we had just turned 4 -11. Since we had so many people visiting & lived way out in the country I bought the largest bottles of shampoo and conditioner that the store sold. Sister and I decided to take a quick trip to town leaving the two dads to watch over all the kids. Well it was hot so the 4 yos asked to take a bath. Once in the bath they discovered that shampoo makes the tub slippery. Letting the water out and adding shampoo is even more fun but not much room. The best fun is to take all the shampoo and all the conditioner onto the floor and add just some water. The bathroom was long they had a great deal of fun running and sliding about the entire room & tub. Finally the dads noticed they had been in there quite a long time and there was a LOT of thumping so went to check the situation out. Two very naked, slippery and happy 4 yos and one totally coated bathroom. There was a sit down built in vanity in addition to the regular bathroom fixtures and every single item was coated with "slip". Now we did have to laugh cause they were cute but that mess...and adding water took forever to clean up. None of my bathrooms have ever been that clean & shiny again.

I just freaked out. and it spattered on the wall, the couch and then landed all upside down on the carpet!!! NOT fun!!!! so talk about thank goodness we had a steam vac!!!

  126. The biggest mess I ever had to clean up was when I dropped a new bottle of ketchup on the kitchen floor when I was about 12. My mom HATES ketchup and I didn't want her to know about it because it would make her sick. My dad hates waste so I didn't want him to know about it either. Soooo... I cleaned up that whole bottle of ketchup with paper towels, constantly afraid that one of those two people would walk in. Fortunately, they didn't. One roll of paper towels later the ketchup was off the floor and in the trash and I very stealthily got it out to the trash can with no one the wiser. Icky icky ick.
    I still like ketchup a lot though.

  133. The biggest mess I ever cleaned up: I put my 4 year old in his room and told him he could play in there for 1/2 hour while I took a nap when I was pregnant and could not keep my eyes open a second longer. 1/2 hour later, I came in and EVERY item that had been in a drawer, on a shelf, on the wall, on the bed was dumped in a pile over a foot deep on the floor. It was such a deliberate mess made by my son. He looked up at me and said, "Look what I did! It even made me TIRED!" You can imagine it made me more tired to pick it up than it made him tired to make the mess. Isn't that always the way? I would love the mop. Said 4-year-old, now 5, LOVES mopping and he owes me big time for all the messes in his life, so I would put him right to work with it. :) brittanyajensen@gmail.com

  134. My biggest mess was when we moved into our current house. Both our real estate agent, and the seller's agent were totally incompetent, and the day I got the keys (which were under the mat in front of the house), I walked in to find YEARS of dirt on the hardwood floors, the (formerly white) linoleum was a depressing gray, and the fridge still had moldy food in it.

    With the help of my mother and a good friend, we tackled the mess, but I remember being *so* upset while I mopped. After two days of intense cleaning, the house looked much improved.

  136. When my husband and I were first married I was excited to learn how to cook so I got a lasagne recipe from my mother and made it. It took me most of the day and I was so proud. It smelled so fabulous and was WAY more than the 2 of us could eat - it would have taken all week or more. Well, we didn't end up having that problem as I dropped it while taking it out of the oven and it shattered the glass casserole dish everywhere. The other problem was that it was too hot to clean up, so I just left it there. After the tears were done we went out to eat :) nattiesue2 @ hotmail (dot) com

  146. Mine is kind of graphic, but kind of funny, so worth it.:) My son was just getting potty trained, so he was wearing underpants. We had beets the night before, and he had eaten A LOT! pretty soon my toddler, just younger than him was teetering around the floor with a hand full of something that looked like red velvet cake batter... Then I noticed piles of it all over the floor... Once I figured out what it was I hollered "Adia, that's POOP! Drop it!" She immediately tried to get it off of her hand, but it wouldn't come off, so she wiped it on her shirt. After realizing she was now coved in it, she started to vomit. Hearing the commotion my husband ran into the room, stepping in the "stuff" (with bare feet) on the way. My son yelled, "Dad, you just stepped in my pretty red poop!" Letting out a woman-like squeal he started vomiting too (just once, but still...) As if in a chain reaction my son started heaving. I knew what this was leading to, so I stripped down the kids and shoved all three of them in the shower to hose down while I cleaned up the mess on the floor. It turned out alright once everyone got a grip, but still, we don't do beets anymore!

  149. It was totally my fault... I left a large bottle of applesauce and some yogurt on the table that the boys did not eat at all. So there was lots of liquidy stuff to play with full and Dallin(the 2 y.o.) decided it would be fun to paint the kitchen with the yogurt and applesauce. I was taking a shower. When I got out the boys had somehow gotten applesauce and yogurt all over the floor, on the cabinets and doors and were starting to work their way to the carpet. It took forever to wipe it all up. And then I had to give them baths as well. As I said though, it was my fault for leaving it on the table where Dallin could get it!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Your floors are probably sealed. Unless they stain every time you spill something no matter how quickly you wipe it up. It is incredibly rare to have unsealed floors right now. Ours are unsealed because the previous owners sanded them down and then I guess changed their mind and covered it with carpet. And I use my steam mop on it ANYWAYS! :D because we really don't care what happens to the floor at this point.
    If your floor is even a wee little bit shiny, or if you are able to wash it without it soaking in water, you're good to go! I have a steam mop and I LOVE it.

  153. I've been looking at getting a steam mop for a LONG time...pretty much since I saw them in the store...my biggest mess story...my four year old has been able to get herself worked into a tizzy since she was itty bitty...so much of a tizzy that she can make herself throw up...ALOT! Anyway, the messes I clean usually involve an aforementioned tizzy. So, a steam mop would come in VERY handy at my house as I have since had two other children and they are learning to mimic their big sister's behavior...blah! Here's hoping I win!

When I came back to it, it had malted through the sides, leaked onto the table, and down onto our rented apartment carpet! Bright orange on a beige carpet? Horrible!

  194. P.S. I also am clueless as to whether my hardwood floors are sealed or not. I Googled:

    There’s a quick way to test and see if your hardwood is sealed or not. Place a drop of water on the floor. If it beads, sits there, looks at you and says, “Whatchya gonna do?” It’s sealed. However, if the bead of water sinks down into the floor and makes a spot the sealant on your floors is no longer sound and water damage can and will occur.
