I was given a discount on the Comforday Steam Cleaner in exchange for my honest review. A review post was not required and all opinions are my own. I was not compensated for this post.
I will be the first to admit that I hate cleaning! I don’t like a dirty or messy house either so I often feel at a crossroads. How do I overcome this? I delegate chores to my children, take turns cooking with my husband and find fun ways to clean like using a steam cleaner.
I remember all the commercials for those high-end steam cleaners that promised all sorts of cleaning miracles. I am sure you are curious as to what a handheld steam cleaner can do to make your home sparkle. I am going to share with you how my family uses a steam cleaner to give you some ideas.
Super Clean the Stove Top
I decided to not clean the stove burner area for a while to give our little steam cleaner a run for it’s money! I set to task by wiping up the dried food crumbs and then started to steam away the visible dirt. Next I started to steam around the gas burner area and more crud came loose then I thought was even there! YUCK!
We didn’t even think about how gross the back wall area of the stove might be until we steam cleaned it! UGH. It was not quite as gross but still streamed down with gunk. So glad that I own a steam cleaner and can now super clean it!
Oven Door, Bottom, and Walls
How many times have you had things spill over in your oven? Even though I don’t bake pies it seems like every time we bake a pizza some cheese falls into the bottom and burns. Sometimes this causes the smoke detector to go off! I don’t have a self-cleaning over or an exhausts hood so I didn’t want to use chemicals to clean it. I had tried soaking a rag with baking soda but some of the gunk just wouldn’t budge!
I set the steam cleaner to task to clean the side walls, door, and bottom of the oven. I needed to use more than one tank of water but it really did the job without all the stress of scrubbing or stink of chemicals.
Degunk the Kitchen Floor
Since we haven’t had a dog in over 2 years it’s very hard for me to want to mop the kitchen floor very often. It’s also much harder to keep the crumbs up and thus have to sweep much more often since we don’t have a furry friend to clean the crumbs up. So there has been a few tiny spills that were neglected and got yucky. If I were to mop over that spot I would have to really get my back and arm muscles into it or use nasty chemicals! NO WAY. Now I can just hold the steam cleaner wand with the fabric pad over the spot and it’s up in as little as 10 seconds WITHOUT breaking my back or getting on my hands and knees and scrubbing! Hallelujah!
Detangle Your Dolls Hair
Yes, you read that right! I’m sure if you have a daughter, niece, or granddaughter then you have seen the matted mess that a doll’s hair can become! My daughter was super big into American Girl sized dolls and we found a knock off version at the craft store! These dolls were 1/5 th of the AG price BEFORE I used a coupon! Flash forward a few years and a dozen hair styles and multiple trips to grandma’s house later. The poor dolls hair has become a matted mess!
The steam cleaner that we got at a discount for review on Amazon is the Handheld Multi-purpose Pressurized Steam Cleaner from Comforday. It’s a pretty powerful steam cleaner that is capable of handling jobs in the bathroom, kitchen, shop or anywhere else grease, grime, dirt and mold accumulate. We still have lots of things to try to clean with our steam cleaner. I was thinking of steam cleaning our toothbrushes to help cut down on germs after someone is sick. Much cheaper then buying a new one for 6 people since they are usually $2-$4 a piece!
Here’s what Comrfoday has to say:
It’s great at lifting and removing stains from carpets, draperies or bed spreads. You can even clean your mattress to prevent or kill bed bugs. It also has powerful window cleaning action. The multi-purpose unit comes with nine accessories that make it versatile at handling different tasks, including steaming wrinkles out of your clothes. Light weight and easy to use, the Handheld Multi-purpose Pressurized Steam Cleaner from Comfordayis a chemical-free way to keep your home healthy and clean.
Do you own a steam cleaner? What do you use it for? If I don’t post for awhile then I might be busy steam cleaning something!
This was a great blog post. It was very informative. I like the different ways you demonstrated that you can use it. I will definitely be trying out the one for dolls!
This sounds VERY interesting to me!!! I don’t have any children or pets to do my cleaning and have never tried to clean an oven! Seeing these pictures and what this product does really makes makes me want one!
The awesome thing about the whole steam cleaner concept is that you DO NOT have to buy a super pricey one! You should add it to your birthday or Christmas wishlist.
Just be sure that you don’t use anything with metal attachment or it could melt the dolls hair.

Wow. I don’t own a steam cleaner, but this almost makes me want to go get one. I would love to see the baked on particles and grease just melt off of my stove like yours.
Great ideas. I have used a steam cleaner just like that on the floor and it really does make a huge difference. Never thought about detangling dolls’ hair.
Loved the ideas in this post! We have a similar steam cleaner and have used it to clean mattresses a ton and have been super impressed with the results. I should really get it out more often!
Steam cleaning is the way to go! I have a Shark steam mop and love it. I have been in the market for a steamer so I can get a better clean in the bathroom. I never thought about using it on the stove. I bet it would do wonders on countertops too. Great post!
I am thinking of using it under the dish drying rack and around the coffee pot, too.
Our family definitely needs one of these!!!! With 10 of us in the house, that makes for some messes. Lately our fire alarm keeps going off when I open our oven door while we are baking something. Apparently it needs cleaning 😉 This would make is so much easier than my SOS pad rendition.
Thank you for sharing your experience with a steam cleaner. Seeing what it can do made a believer out of me!
OhMyGoodness, I LOVE my steam mop! Even wrote a whole big post on it myself, a couple of years ago! Thanks for linking up at Friday Frivolity and I hope you join us again next week!
I so could use one of those bad boys!!
I hate housework! And I hate a dirty messy house! I didn’t know about the dolls hair with the steam cleaner!! Thanks for sharing this at Welcome Home Wednesdays Linky!
Definitely consider buying one! Anytime I get the urge to clean the steam cleaner does wonders!
Still need to figure out the doll hair a bit more but it does work.
