This is something that I never used to do…. but in recent years, I have decided to purchase a little something-something for myself while in the midst of the frenzied holiday shopping. But here’s the thing… what I tend to purchase is not so much self-indulgent as it is about buying some of “tool” that I wish to own, that I don’t want anyone else to pick out for me. And certainly I don’t want to “use up” a gift from my husband on something so trivial as a new mixer or food chopper…. when I would really prefer to have him buy me something more romantic (like jewelry!)
This year, I’ve been on the hunt for a device to de-stick-ify my home (is destickify a word? If not, it should be!)
You see, my kids have this funny habit of eating Popsicles year-round. I know- it’s basically frozen sugar water on a stick- but they adore this cool treat and like to have one after school, along with that whatever other healthy option they are enjoying. But lately they’ve decided (ignoring my input) that they can eat these Popsicles pretty much anywhere they want in the house…. and not necessarily while slurping them over a bowl…. so now I’m finding little drips of green, red, orange and blue all over my floors! Grrr….
I’m not finding the clean-up to be very entertaining during this time of year. A sticky mess like this needs the right tool for the job. This week I had a chance to test out the Swiffer Bissell Steamboost Steam Mop- to see if it could do battle against my Popsicle drips. This steam mop uses pre-treated Swiffer pads that seriously make a difference when combined with the steam of the mop. I am more than a little grossed-out by the amount of dirt it quickly pulled off of my tile and wood floors! And yes, it quickly and easily removed the sticky Popsicle drips. Score!
So if you are in the market to buy yourself a little holiday gift to make your life easier in 2014- this steam mop might be just what you need!
