Oreck Steam-It Giveaway!

I have wanted a steam mop for a while now.  We recently had the grout on our tile floors in the kitchen and entry way color sealed.  The grout was stained and it drove me crazy.  Color sealing it made it look new again.

The only problem was that it has to be cleaned with water only.  No cleaners. No vinegar.  Just water.

There are 6 people living in this house, not to mention neighbor kids and others who come in and out.  And I’m in the kitchen cooking a lot too.  There is no way that water only with a regular mop was going to get it for us.

So when I got the chance to try the Oreck Steam-It, I was very excited.  Is it crazy to get excited about a mop?

I love this thing!  The floors looks great.  Even the bathroom floors that still have stained grout look great.  The grout isn’t perfect, but it’s so much cleaner than it was.

The steam mop is easy to use and light weight.  You fill it with a small funnel:

After you put the water in, turn the Steam-It on and it heats in less than a minute.

There are two different mop covers – a fuzzy, fluffy one and a less fuzzy one.  (How’s that for descriptive?)  I like the fluffy one, because I feel like it gets into the grooves of the grout better.  I’ve gotten great results with both though.

I debated on showing you this picture, because it makes it look like we’re a family of pigs living in this house, but here’s what the mop cover looked like after doing all the floors in the house.  And I didn’t think they were *that* dirty, but it shows that the Steam-It really is cleaning the floors.  This was the second time we used the Steam-It.  Each time, I think the floors get cleaner and cleaner, which is a good feeling.

The mop cover may look nasty, but my floors look amazing!  And I love that the covers can be thrown in the wash.  They come out looking clean again too.

Did I mention that I love this steam mop?

You can use the steam mop on other types of flooring too.  I’ve used it on our vinyl floors as well.  And I even steamed the top of my glass top stove.  The photos of that didn’t come out very well, but it did make the stove top look fantastic.

Oreck is going to give a Steam-It to one of you!

The winner must reside in the U.S. 48 contiguous states.  Giveaway closes on Friday night 7/13.  Winner chosen by random drawing (using And the Winner Is…plugin).

Mandatory first entry:  Visit Oreck.com and tell us one thing you learned about the Steam-It.

Optional second entry: Follow Oreck on Facebook.

Disclosure: I was given a Steam-It steam mop to try by Oreck.  All opinions are my own.  Oreck Corporation provided the prize for the sweepstakes but is not the sponsor of the sweepstakes.

  122. Would this mean I can clean the upholstery on my dining room chairs? My Grandson has them looking quite tacky. He’s only 3 but the boy can sure make a mess.

  149. This looks amazing. We just moved into a house with all hardwood and ceramic tile so I’m definitely in the market for something other than my vacuum for our floors! I had no idea the Steam Mop could even clean windows and mattresses! I would love to try this out!

  150. Bernadene Whitten says:

    I love steamers, I have two of them so I am not putting in for the giveaway. The Oreck and the Shark, the two steamers I have, look very similar. The two tabs on the front regulate the steam on the sides of the machine, you can bring the tabs in and direct all the steam up front, or you can push out one oe both of the tabs to direct the steam to the sides. I have a steam mop, but with less attachments than the oreck. I really like the window cleaner, it has an attached squeegee for streakless windows. I also use my large steamer with the furniture attachment to clean my drapes while they are hanging up on the windows. I have even used my larger steamer as an iron. I can’t live without either one now, the house feels so clean. I am glad you like your Oreck.

  151. Oh I would love one of these! I love a clean floor but hate messing with mops and buckets of dirty water–yuck.

    I learned that the Oreck Steam-It Mop uses dry steam, which is high temperature, low moisture vapor containing just 5 to 6 percent water.

    Thanks so much for the chance!

  152. I follow Oreck on facebook.
