I made an investment in a steam mop a few months ago, and my husband and I agree it’s one of the best investments I’ve made. For one thing, I like steam cleaning the floors. I love the sound of the steam, the heat, the awareness that there is not a germ that is going to survive my relentless Napoleonic swoop of the kitchen floor. It even smells good. Once the floors start looking clean, I start feeling happy and energized about cleaning off the kitchen table, picking up the dirty clothes, doing the laundry, etc. I’m on it now.
