Handheld steam cleaners provide convenient and chemical-free cleaning for quick spills and light cleaning tasks. They can be used to clean tile, hard floors, kitchen appliances, bathrooms and even outdoor areas. I used one before and it worked wonders on my kitchen and bathroom faucet.

Vinegar to the Rescue
There are many versatile ways you can use vinegar to clean around the house, from cleaning your refrigerator to eliminating odors. To effortlessly remove tarnish from copper, brass or pewter, apply a mixture of 1 teaspoon of salt, ½ cup of white distilled vinegar and flour to make a paste. Apply to the metal and allow it to stand for 15 minutes. Rinse with water and polish with soft, dry cloth.

Reusable Mop Pads
The ProMist MAX Microfiber Spray Mop is very handy to have around the house. It's compact, light-weight, easy to use and it does a great job for quick clean ups. I particularly like the machine-washable mop pads. I prefer this style over disposable ones because I don't have to worry about purchasing the disposables and I can simply throw this in the wash.
