We parted ways with our Swiffer and started using a Monster EZ1 Steam Mop and Floor Cleaner about 9 months ago.
It just seemed like a wiser option with a crawling baby and a playful preschooler in the house. We spend so much time on the floor - picnicing, playing pretend, reading books, and building roads out of wooden blocks. I don't like the idea of sitting, lying, and playing on surfaces that have poisonous chemical residue so that steam mop has been a great thing for our floors.
But what about our countertops, mirrors, and tables?
Recently, we had an opportunity to try the ionator HOM ($169.99) by Activeion - and I am quite impressed. It's a product that uses ordinary tap water, activated by electricity...to clean, sanitize, and disinfect any surface. Skeptical? I was too, but it really does seem to work!
You can learn a little more about the "science" behind the whole thing by watching as Bill Nye the Science Guy explains how it works.
It's super easy to use - and almost...fun! Even my 3-year-old likes to get in on the cleaning action.
I feel good knowing that our home is tidy and clean WITHOUT chemicals. We don't have to worry about poisons - in bottles or airborne - due to our cleaning products...and that gives me tremendous peace of mind.
P.S. I am still a little bit skeptical, but not because it doesn't work (it does!). It just one of those things that seems too good to be true, you know?
