Gruene steam cleaner against bathroom tiles
I don't have the best of experiences with steam cleaners to be honest. Most are bulky, they're loud, expensive, and don't work well enough to be worth the trouble – I mean, a lot of them even only do carpets. I've seen this new type of cleaner advertised, and it looked so amazing, I thought it really couldn't be true… it just sounded way too good.
I'm pretty shocked that it wasn't too good to be true. The Gruene really blew me away within ten minutes of opening the box, and most of those minutes were spent just reading instructions and what tools do what. It was easy to put together so I could try it right away.
The steam was ready to go in just seconds like promised, and I didn't get hurt using it. Despite the fact that I'm about to have my third back surgery, this cleaner is light enough for me to use it without pain. I just put the water in, and within a few seconds, using only one attachment, I was able to clean stuff off of shower and bathroom tiles that had been there for years, without even having to put much work into it. The thing that took the most time? Cleaning the brush after doing a lot of cleaning with it, and even that didn't take long. I was able to do about six large tiles, including the lines between, in two minutes, including the time it took to create the steam. It was just amazing, and it's going to help with the flood damage a lot.
It can be used to sanitize items, get wrinkles out of clothes, has a corner attachment, and other attachments for things like cleaning metal, plus it pops off to be portable when you aren't doing floors. Not only that, but no replacement pads that cost more in a year than the unit – You can use normal towels and cloths from any standard store. People who know me know that I can't clean without issues because of my back, and that I'm really picky, but everything about using the Greune was a wonderful experience.
Note: I have some video; However, I'm having editing and audio problems due to the camera not doing well picking up audio and putting it in Quicktime format which I have to convert to even use since I'm not on a Mac. Still, even with the short videos, you can see how easily I was able to use the unit and how quickly – I also have pictures and hopefully can get my review on audio with me speaking soon.
