Before I purchased the shark steam mop, I read other people’s comments and reviews to help me to decide if spending the thirty-nine dollars would really be a wise choice for a MOP! I went back and forth deciding yes to get one and then no -it’s just a mop. The pros won out and I purchased the mop. Well, after two weeks of heavy use, I can honestly say that I am very pleased with the purchase of this mop. As odd as this sounds, it really does cut down the time I spend actually cleaning my floors. I have a large amount of tile to clean and one of the best features of using this mop is the fast drying time. I also have linoleum flooring and was very pleased at how the old floor looked when I use the Shark mop on it. The assembly is super easy. As I do have a lot of floor to mop, the next step/size up would be beneficial but the the ease of refilling the tank once really outweighs the need for the larger shark. Would I spend this much on a mop again? Yes, this product did deliver on its promise.

Gardening tools can be awkward and hard to store, but there are tons of great options to help get you organized. For long handled like rakes and shovels, you could get a small standing rack for your garage or shed (here’s the standing rack that I have, or you can get one like this that fits in the corner). You can also store long handled garden tools by hanging them on hooks on the wall. I use this heavy duty long handle tool hanger for my garden tools too (I have a lot of garden tools!).

For larger jobs that require multiple pads, the Shark Genius Pocket Mop makes switching and replacing them as easy as any steam mop we tried. You press a small lever with your foot, let the folded-over Genius pad flip open onto the floors, and shimmy the mop head out of the pad. You can then flip the pad over to use the back side or click a fresh pad into place, all without touching it with your hands—it’s faster, cleaner, and safer, especially while the mop is still hot. That convenience will cost you $20 to $30 extra over the PowerFresh; in most other respects, the Genius Pocket Mop nearly matches the PowerFresh in ease of use, weight, and flexibility.

Mason jars have a different type of lid – sort of a plate and a ring. If paint is left in there for ages and gets onto the plate, you can still pop it off and replace the plate – or both the plate and ring. If paint gets stuck to a baby jar lid, you’ll have a hard time twisting off the lid. Or ……. you could just try not to get any paint on any of the lids until you try to open the jar. Hope that helps.

Everyone up here uses sheet rock, plastered/textured just like normal interior walls. If you rock/plaster, I’d highly suggest painting it all right away since paint is easy to clean and plaster just absorbs dirt

“Okay, so I waited a couple of months to try this and then do a review. I have to say, this machine is awesome! I live in a fully tiled house in the desert with six big dogs. I clean about two times a week, and I’ve used this on the carpet in our house, too. The only problem is that I go through the solution you can buy from Bissell so fast. I decided to try the Mr. Clean concentrated cleaner, and I just put two drops into the whole bottle of water.”

Power Cord: Cord lengths on the models we last tested ranged from 16 to 30 feet. A short cord may limit you to a small cleanup job in a small room. And an extension cord may be unsafe with these high-wattage appliances.

If you don’t already have a mud room, the garage is the perfect place to set one up. A few locker cabinets and some canvas totes give you the perfect place to keep jackets and muddy shoes from entering your home. You can set this system up just inside the garage door and save yourself from mopping every time someone comes in. Via: BHG – Cubbies for Kids

Simply Organized: Organizing the Cleaning Closet Organizing the Cleaning Closet: I really like the hook rack idea to hang up the little dusters, brushes, brooms, etc. Cheaper than buying all those command strips and dealing with them not holding up.

You are a creative genius! I am so glad I found you at A Creative Princess! We just moved our shed this past holiday weekend. It will now be used as my garden shed for all of my garden tools. I was going to go buy pegboard but now that I see this, nope, not gonna do it! I will be buying some PVC instead! I will be posting on my blog once everything is in place! I would love it if you popped over and shared this at my party going on now at

There is NO corner reinforcement at all so that is where the problem starts. I ordered some 4ft GearWall panels that were much better packed so obviously Gladiator can manage to design better packing.

The whole idea behind a steam mop is that it offers you convenience, which means fast heat up times and fast dry times. It also means that you shouldn’t have to stop several times to refill the tank, or unplug the cord just to finish the room. After all, a longer cord allows for easier reach to electric sockets and less likelihood that you’ll have to unplug the cord and wait for the unit to heat up again just to finish a room.

New 1 1/2 inch ceramic cabinet, drawer, or furniture knob with mounting hardware included. Also works great in a bathroom or on bi…-fold closet doors (may require longer screws). Item can be wiped clean with a soft damp cloth. Great addition and nice finishing touch to any room! read more

Great looking Powdercoated Steel Pegboard panels available in a variety of colors.  Formed edges (5/8 in. deep) for ease of installation and creating the right offset for use with all Pegboard hooks and hangers.

This cleaner is shaped like a tank, and with good reason. It holds up to 1,420 ml of water, so it can be used for around 45 minutes without needing to refill. That’s just over double the amount of use time as the other finalists. The only drawbacks we found were that the shape was a little more cumbersome than the models shaped like conventional mops, it took a little longer to heat up, and that the boiler was hard to fill without spilling.
