Canadian Tire Home Crew Bathroom Mission with the Shark Portable Steam Cleaner

A few weeks ago I shared with you my experience cleaning my kitchen with my new Shark  Portable Steam Cleaner from Canadian Tire. This past weekend, I went on another cleaning mission. This time my focus was the bathrooms. We have two bathrooms in our home- one upstairs and one downstairs. Both get lots of use so were in need of a good cleaning and I was curious to see how the Shark Portable Steam Cleaner would fare. I’ve only used strong cleaning products on the bathroom in the past so I wanted to know if the power of steam could cut through the grime.

I think the proof is in the pictures! The Shark Portable Steam Cleaner worked wonders on my upstairs bathroom sink. That disgusting stuck on soap scum from bars of soap is such a PAIN to get off. I used the nylon bristle brush attachment and it literally melted that hard soap scum off. I just had to wipe it up with a paper towel. Normally I dump chemicals on it and put a lot of elbow grease to get it to sparkle.

I think it looks 100% better!



I also ventured to our downstairs bathroom and tackled the toilet and the sink. This bathroom is in serious need of redecorating. The wood paneling has got to go! For now, I can only make the best of it and keep it clean.

The sink wasn’t too bad. I liked that the Shark Portable Steam Cleaner got into the area around the faucet that is tricky to clean. It dissolves the stuck on dirt so its just a matter of a quick wipe. Love the power of steam!

I saved the toilet for last because its my LEAST favourite job. I wanted to get it done as quickly as possible. I have to say that the job was complete in no time. I didn’t have to use any extra effort to scrub because the steam cleans so effectively.

It even gets in the area behind the seat where its hard to get at the dirt.

I also found it much easier to do the bottom part of the toilet. That area gets so dirty and is easy to miss because you can’t really see it unless you get down and look at it. It was pretty bad. However,  it was no match for the Shark and now is shiny and white like new!

I love my new steam cleaner and am actually looking forward to sanitizing other areas of my home!
