HomeRight SteamMachine (Review & Giveaway)

Disclosure: I received a product to help facilitate the review. No other form of compensation took place. All opinions stated are my own.

HomeRight has a product called the SteamMachine that makes light work of some pretty grimy jobs. We took our machine out this week and it made housecleaning safer because it uses only water (no chemicals), more thorough (those attachments let you get anywhere), and more fun (who doesn't like running around the house playing with a new toy?).

The SteamMachine is very lightweight and has a big, sturdy fold-down handle (love the handle!) that allows you to easily move it from room to room. It also has smooth-rolling wheels, so if you're using the attachment for cleaning the floor, it will move right along with you.


It comes with a good number of attachments including a brass brush (for things like the oven), and a squeegee (for things like the shower, counter tops, or windows), and a jet nozzle. It also has a nice, flat attachment that allows you to easily loosen up the wallpaper and peel it off (no more fighting to get old wallpaper off of your walls!).

The SteamMachine is easy to use, simply fill the cup up with distilled water (the cup and a funnel are provided), screw on the cap (do not unscrew it until the  machine is completely cooled off), and turn on the switch. It takes about 8  minutes to get the steam built up. A ready indicator light will let you know when it's good to go. If the steam starts to diminish while you're working, you simply turn the switch on the nozzle to 'off' for about 40 seconds and it rebuilds the pressure just that fast.

We used it on several areas. Once with the nylon brush attachment to remove crayon from the ceiling of my son's room (don't ask).

My son's ceiling (before).

The long attachment made it easy to reach the crayon on the ceiling.

You can see it's coming off with no problem at all.

On the ceiling in the Master Bath to remove those ugly spots that form if you don't run the fan all of the time after a shower.

I guess the color variation is from turning on the light.
IThe one on the left is before. The one on the right is after.

Another time to make the chrome around the shower doors look shiny and clean.

This picture was pretty impossible to get, but the chrome
around the shower doors was impressively shiny.


And my favorite way, to remove a Spiderman sticker that Prince Charming put on his rocking chair over a year ago that we could not previously remove.

That's the steam cleaner in the back so you can see how portable it is...super easy to carry around.
You can also see the indicator lights.

Ugly sticker we could not remove.

Ugly sticker is gooooooooooone. Woo hoo!

There is a safety switch on the trigger so your children aren't going to get burnt if they happen by while you've stepped away for a second or two. I love that feature because you know kids are going to be intrigued with any new item that is being used by mom.

Another feature I love is that the small attachments are stored inside the machine so you know you're not going to lose them. Woooot! I wish everything with attachments did the same.

  6. I would definitely use that in the master bathroom! Being a clean freak, that is the one room in the house that really makes me grit my teeth to clean. I think the people who lived here before us NEVER cleaned it, now the grime is stuck on and impossible to remove!

    1. It's got a squeegee so cleaning the shower doors was a breeze. I didn't think they were dirty to start with, but I cleaned half and left the other half clean, and hubby and one child knew which half I'd cleaned. So... :)

      The chrome is as shiny as that found on a fixed up muscle car in an 80's movie. ;)
