Although the Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop 1940 is a basic mop, meaning it doesn’t have any accessories or attachments to make it suitable for any type of steam cleaning other than floors, it does have three steam settings (low, medium and high). The 1940 can also sanitize, but you have to hold it in place for about 20 seconds to sanitize a spot. However, most owners say they did not buy the PowerFresh to sanitize, but rather just to clean, so they don’t see that as a significant negative. The Bissell’s 12-inch swivel head gets much praise for its ability to fit under most cupboards and clean along the walls. It’s extreme maneuverability is one of the reasons that it lands in the top spot at our three expert test sites, too. It also locks into a standing position — something most steam mops don’t do and that is a very popular feature.
Home It Mop and Broom Holder is effortless to install. It comes with installation manual, screws and wall anchors to male your work easier and fast.

The diagram below shows one of the long garage walls that will be needed. This wall contains the rough opening for the man-door. You can see all of the necessary components of the wall required to assemble (frame) it. Notice that the wall framing dimension is 1 shorter than our overall length of 24′. The reason for this is that we will be placing 1/2 thick plywood or oriented strand board (OSB) structural sheathing all the way around the perimeter, after the roof is framed and sheathed. After the structural sheathing is installed, our finished framing measurements will equal 12′ x 24′. Study the components of this diagram and familiarize yourself with how it will be assembled and then we will explain the details of how it must be accomplished.
Yes, a vacuum or broom can quickly clean surface debris from the hard flooring in your home. But if you want to make sure your floors are truly spotless, you’ll need a mop. Manual mopping, however, requires both elbow grease and patience. Steam mops are popular for a reason. Not only do they mop faster, they also provide a deeper clean. Best of all, your floors dry quickly, so you don’t have to worry about keeping kids and pets off of them for hours.
Although it doesn’t have a removable water tank, this was the easiest stationary tank to fill, thanks to an easy fill opening that helps prevent spills. The dirt tank is also easy to use, and features a built in Drop-IT system. All you have to do is press the lever to empty the debris into the trash.
Our tool shed was a disaster waiting to happen. Not only was I worried about tools falling over, but also stepping on sharp or pointed tools scattered on the ground. This takes care of both. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

We have numbered the walls as 1, 2, 3 and 4 which is the order that we will erect and brace each wall until we have all four walls up, squared, level, plumb, and ready to lock the washers and nuts down over the anchor-bolts. If your foundation isn’t exactly level, you can level the walls by placing shims under the sole plate until you have the wall lifted at the low spots. It is important to get the top plate level for the roof framing phase.

In testing at YourBestDigs.com, the Shark Steam Pocket had good results in cleaning high traffic areas (the Bissell earned an excellent in that regard), and took about 12 seconds to remove dried soil. It also dried in two minutes and heated in 30 seconds. At 4.8 pounds, it’s lighter than the Bissell, but with a shorter, 20-foot power cord. It was also the quietest steam mop editors tested, making no noise at all. Ultimately, they name it their top budget pick.
To move dirt, lift plants, and dig holes for anything larger than seedlings, you need a good long-handled shovel. The best shovels have concave, round-pointed blades, with ample flat edges on either side of the top of the blade to rest your foot for on for leverage, and a D-shaped hand grip.
The Shark Blast & Scrub is also a bit much, giving you a mop that can turn into a curtain steamer, an ironlike hand steam cleaner, a spray-bottle hard floor cleaner (the same as the Shark we recommend), and a dust-wand-style attachment (that, of course, also releases steam). As an actual steam mop that cleans floors, it’s fine, but not any better than the Pocket Mop we recommend. If you want to clean your curtains and other upholstery, read our guide to the best upholstery steamer. Shark’s S6001 Genius Mop, a variant of our upgrade pick, requires that you pump the handle to issue steam, and for $100, nobody should have to do that.
Thanks for continued comments. I have just posted a new article reporting in on several of my organization schemes and how they held up after 1 year of use. The post is here. This one is still golden – others required modifications.
So far it seems ok. But there were not enough tool holders. I used almost all of them on the first two 2 foot panels I installed. I am going to look at a local big box store to see if I can find suitable alternatives. If not, I may contact the manufacturer to see if they offer additional packages of these holders. But it is is a disappointment-considering the price of these organizers. Probably would not recommend without a warning.
We have managed to keep the garage open enough for 2 vehicles- I think my husband put it in the marriage contract. Growing up we never had garage space and he knew I come from hoarder stock. That said- the top of the garage is in serious disarray!
You can find tracks with hooks on them at your local hardware store and these are great for organizing the garage. Just hang the track on the wall and the hooks store all sorts of things. They are easily changeable, too so you can keep things organized no matter what the season. Via: Maryorganizes – Garage Organization for Real Families
Organization experts stress the importance of getting items up off the floor. When it comes to lawn and garden equipment, I am a huge fan of using vertical space whenever possible, says Lisa Mark, certified professional organizer at The Time Butler in Los Altos, California. These systems convert otherwise unusable wall space into great storage space. Think of your garage walls as a blank canvas for arranging useful art: rakes and shovels, sprinklers, pruners, weed whackers, and more.
As you place each garage wall framing structure into position, you want to first make sure it is in a straight-line before you secure your bracing. You do this with a string line run along the top plate out from the edge of the plate about 1/2. Simply nail a 1 x 1 x 4 piece of pine to each end stud and run the string to each end. Then move the wall in and out with the interior braces until the wall matches the string line from one end to the other. Once you have it near perfect, nail the braces to the stakes in the earth. You can do this same procedure at the bottom plate with the string and a sledge-hammer to tap the wall in and out before tightening your nuts on the anchor-bolts.

I have a small apartment and the broom closet was always a mess with the brooms hitting me in the face whenever I took the trash out. This saved me so much stress! The slots have little rollers and they move to fit just about any size mop or broom. There are also little hooks that can drop down if you want to hold towels or the dust pan, which is what I use it for. This is a must-have organizational tool!
This versatile system features grooved panels that attach to walls and organize various types of accessories, including hooks, shelves, baskets, and brackets. A slatwall system tends to be more affordable than cabinetry and features a narrower depth, says Chris McKenry, owner of Get It Together LA and member of the National Association of Professional Organizers. “If you don’t want to take up the whole wall, you can also simply add small strips of slat wall with adjustable hooks,” he says.
We hate to break it to you, but after putting in 38 hours on research and testing, we’ve learned that most people don’t need a steam mop—they aren’t any better than wet mops, and we were shocked to find that they can damage almost every kind of floor in your house. But if you need to glazed tile or sealed stone (only), the Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop 1940 will make the job the easiest.

A grandson of Ben Brush, Whisk Broom II was sired by the U.S. Hall of Fame stallion Broomstick. He was bred in 1907 by the late Sam S. Brown’s Senorita Stud Farm (now the site of the Kentucky Horse Park). In 1908 New York State passed the Hart-Agnew Law, which made betting on horse racing illegal, and led to the closure of many racetracks. Several prominent owners moved the bulk of their operations overseas, with Europe being a popular destination. Harry Payne Whitney, who had purchased Whisk Broom, sent the colt to England to be trained by the American Jack Joyner.

If sanitizing is your top priority, we recommend you take a look at the Sienna Luna Plus Steam Mop (Est. $170). With the ability to heat up to 212 degrees, it sanitizes your floor more quickly than most steam mops, however you still have to hold it over the area you want to sanitize for a minimum of 8 seconds, but no more than 15 or the very hot steam could damage your floor.
