More than 6,300 verified purchasers have rated the PowerFresh on Amazon, with an average of 4.3 out of 5 stars. Notable in the reviews are appetite-killing photos of just how much grime the PowerFresh mop was able to pick up with its pads. The pads are also as easy to clean in a sink or washing machine as any other steam mop pad—it’s helpful if you have other soiled cleaning rags to wash at the same time.

Who doesn’t love a whisk broom. I grew up with these things and they are great for the car and easy to stash in the trunk. Gets the dog hair out of the carpet easily as well as the dirt. I bought one for the house, and the car.

The pair reused the initial carriage doors and hung them barn-door-style at the back. The walls remained specifically the same as the day they were put up, but Prepare transformed out the roofing system and also included new doors and windows.

This is the first year that we found a nice range of expert reviews and testing of steam mops — and there was a lot of overlap among the top choices, which was even better because it made it very easy for us to find the best-reviewed choices right off the bat. Those expert testing sites included TheSweethome.com, OurBestDigs.com and TopTenReviews.com, which not only offer well-detailed testing, but also rank and rate the mops against each other.

During our research phase, we read subreddits like /r/BuyItForLife/ and reviewed articles from cleaning experts to gather information on what features to look for in a steam mop. We also checked out blog reviews and YouTube videos. We narrowed down the field to 18 steam mops, then culled the list even further based on consumer reviews.

The Bissell 19404 PowerFresh Steam Mop Hard Floor Steam Cleaner outperformed the competition in several of the key metrics we used to determine the best steam mop. It heats up in less than a minute, can be used for 20 minutes at a time, and the floor dries in less time than it takes to put the unit away. Most importantly, the built-in easy scrubber and scrubby microfiber pad work with the steam to remove soil and grime in a matter of seconds. The icing on the cake is its removable tank, which makes filling and emptying the tank with water a breeze.

We also found a lower level of satisfaction with the cleaning performance of steam mops on hardwood floors than with linoleum or tile. Quite a few users say the floor dried with streaks, or that the scrubbing pads included with the steam mop left scratches on their wood floors. Our advice is to be very careful before using a steam mop on any type of hardwood or laminate flooring. However, if you have tile, linoleum, or most of the other common types of flooring, a steam mop may be your new best cleaning friend.

Prior to cleaning, you should thoroughly sweep or vacuum your floors, and the microfiber pads should be cleaned and washed regularly. Some models come with carpet gliders, which can eliminate odors and freshen carpets, but do not remove stains. Multi-purpose types have brushes and attachments to clean carpets.

GarageTek’s patented TekPanel is the core of the entire garage organization system. This waterproof, bugproof, slotted wall paneling is the only garage paneling that is strength certified and fire rated by Underwriter’s Laboratories. In addition, TekPanel’s reflective surface makes the walls easy to keep clean and gives the garage a bright, clean appearance. As with any finished room in your home, GarageTek adds trim and molding around every window and doorway.

In 1797, the quality of brooms changed when Levi Dickenson, a farmer in Hadley, Massachusetts, made a broom for his wife, using the tassels of sorghum, a grain he was growing for the seeds. His wife spread good words around town, creating demand for Dickenson’s sorghum brooms. The sorghum brooms held up well, but ultimately, like all brooms, fell apart. Dickenson subsequently invented a machine that would make better brooms, and faster than he could. In 1810, the foot treadle broom machine was invented. This machine played an integral part in the Industrial Revolution.[4]

Slatwall: These panels, made of medium density fiberboard (MDF), overlapping layers and look a little like vinyl siding. They can be attached to drywall, masonry or wood studs, and the slats provide ample opportunity for attaching hooks and shelves.

I ordered two packs and both arrived with damaged corners and one panel had broken in two. Luckily, I think the damaged corners will be hidden with trim and the bits broken off are on the back side of the panel so am going to use them rather than try to return them. The problem is that the 8ft by 1ft panels are cumbersome to handle so the delivery person has a hard time unloading them and delivering them. I imagine they are handled badly throughout the process, being long and heavy as both packages arrived scuffed and scarred.

Plywood or OSB board: Wood walls make a durable option for garages: They can take a beating from teenagers carelessly backing out the family car and are strong enough to hang tools and equipment without worrying so much about studs. They also help absorb sound. “Plywood has a neat look for walls when painted,” Eric says. “Just be aware it will take several coats, because it really soaks up the paint.”

The Shark Steam Pocket (S3501) (Est. $55) is a more affordable option that does well in professional testing. It also receives thousands of owner reviews that are nearly as high as those of the Bissell PowerFresh. This Shark steam mop is the number four mop after testing at YourBestDigs.com, but the number two mop is actually a steam cleaner (which we cover in a separate report) and the number three steam mop, our former runner up in this category, the Shark Professional Steam Pocket 3601D (Est. $100) was recently discontinued, although it’s still available at retail for now.

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

This Whisk Broom is easy to clean – simply rinse over water and reuse. The broom features blue colored fibers with a white comfort grip handle. Poly fibers for indoor and outdoor use. Fibers are tough…

Just adding a little style to your garage doors will instantly transform them. You can actually give those doors the carriage house door look without spending hundreds on actual carriage house doors. Many home improvement stores sell kits that allow you to instantly transform your doors and the kits are relatively inexpensive and really easy to install. Via: Garrdenoflove – Garage Door Makeover

In terms of storage, a model that has a fold-down or telescoping handle is easier to tuck into a closet or cabinet. If you have low-lying furniture, choose a mop with a low profile to easily fit underneath items with low clearance.

Whisk Broom II (1907–1928) was an American-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who raced in the United Kingdom (under the name Whisk Broom) and in the United States. Whisk Broom showed high class form during four seasons of racing in Europe, but produced his best performances when returning to America in 1913. He claimed the New York Handicap Triple by winning the Metropolitan Handicap, the Brooklyn Handicap, and the Suburban Handicap, a feat unmatched until Tom Fool achieved it forty years later. Kelso in 1961 and Fit To Fight in 1984 later joined them as the only other horses to win the Handicap Triple. Whisk Broom II’s career was ended by injury after his triple success, but he went on to become a successful breeding stallion.

We also read as many owner reviews as we could, although steam mop reviews on Amazon are heavily influenced by reviewers provided with free samples by a few companies. Reviewers also often fail to specify the type of floors they are cleaning, or suggest uses for their mop that most people should avoid.

“I was told that steam mops were not all they are cracked up to be, and I’m finicky when it comes to cleaning my house, especially my kitchen and dining floors, which are that luxury vinyl. First, DO NOT BUY luxury-vinyl tiles for your flooring. It looks so nice, but cleaning the floors are a bitch, man. But, I digress. This steam mop has cut hours off of my mop job. Yes, I am that anal. I sweep, vacuum, and then mop. I use both pads for cleaning and switch them out when they get dirty. I rinse them out and continue to use when they fill up with dirt. In my house, there is a lot of dirt with a boy, three dogs, and five cats. Oh, and pee. Lots and lots of pee.”

This broom holder from Anybest is perhaps the most fascinating of them all. Its futuristic design presents a double deck with 6 ball grips, 6 hooks, and 2-layered structure. This allows you to store many more items compared to the standard single-layer broom holders. It features rolling balls that automatically adjust to take the thickness of the handles. A simple lifting of the broom handle will release the grip.

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.

Beyond the easy-change mop head, the Genius Pocket Mop has a single level of steam operation, which is fine and gets the job done. The mop’s blue light blinks when warming up and cooling down, which is convenient. If you flip the mop head backward (underneath the body instead of in front of it), the mop’s steam shoots out directly onto the floor (as a so-called Steam Blaster), which might help with truly sticky stains. The Genius Pocket Mop was not quite as agile as the PowerFresh in bending sideways or dipping low beneath objects, but it was more flexible than all the other mops we tested.
