Having a family of 8 is such a blessing. I take my 6 kids with me to run errands, go on junkin’ adventures, and just have some plain ol’ fun. Our family vehicle is our trustworthy steed that gets a whole lotta lovin’. Back before children my husband and I gave our vehicles a head-to-toe cleaning every two weeks, with a DIY detailing each month. Do you think that happens now? Ahahahahaha…not on your life. But…now with my new tool I am going to get down and dirty and give our ride a chemical free cleaning. Check it out.
Back in the days of yore, my go-to tools for auto cleaning were my bottle of window cleaner, cotton swabs, an old toothbrush, and a rag. It would take me hours to tackle to upholstery, clean the windows and doors, not to mention the carpet. With this AutoRight Steam Machine I can not only get it done faster, but also achieve a chemical free cleaning. Yeehaw!
Let me give you some background…I was due with our 5th child and had no vehicle to carry all of us because we sold our van. I had been frantically trying to find a suburban before my baby’s arrival and put a wanted ad out to see if we could find one within our budget. An answer to prayer came hours after I posted and were able to not only locate one, but it was a few thousand under most in price and had excellent mileage. PERFECT for us.
You might be thinking…uh oh (because of scammers), but since my husband knows vehicles he checked it out and all was good. Turns out this guy had like 5 of them and wanted them off his property, but hadn’t gotten around to selling them yet. The catch was that it used to be a company vehicle and it had a little wear on the interior.
I didn’t care and just wanted something to suit our needs. We never got it clean as we wanted to at that point, and have been aching to get it done right. Most, if not all, of the stains are from the employees dumping coffee and soaps as we don’t really eat in our vehicle.
Because I was so stoked to tackle my truck, I made a little spoof to show you …
Can you believe it? Not only is this terrifically awesome, but it is CHEMICAL FREE! I am all about that because that’s why I didn’t clean it thus far. I don’t want my kids riding around in a chemical bath. Now my truck went from this…
…to this!! No residues and kills 99% bacteria. Chemical free cleaning gives me the best feeling.
All this little red powerhouse needs is water and it’s ready to go. Just look at the assortment of fun attachments that fit inside, plus those pictured above:
- crevice tool – to fit in all the nooks and crannies
- jet nozzle – for blasting dirt and grime
- large and small nylon brushes (black bristles) – for hard plastic surfaces
- large and small soft nylon brushes (grey bristles) – for leather
- large and small brass brushes – for auto parts and tires
- squeegee with base for windows, and a poly/cotton bonnet for fabric upholstery.
The attachments offer so many cleaning devices for every kind of upholstery, including leather. The set even comes with a funnel, measuring cup, and a terry cloth towel.
Look at how much dirt I got off the arm rest in a couple of passes…bluck.
There’s even brass bristle brushes for tires and auto parts.
The first thing I said to my teenage son who was helping me was, “We can’t tell your father about this yet.” Why? Because I know he won’t work on our kitchen remodel when he gets his hands on this! bwahahaha… tsk. My son even wants to clean his bike with it. Can you tell we are hooked?
It is not surprising that this machine lived up to its name because of my love for my other HomeRight products in my tool arsenal. The best part is…I get to share one with you! YAHOO!!
