Chemical Free Cleaning for Your Vehicle

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.

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!!

Comments

  1. April Adcock says

    OMG, I would clean my car completely with that sucker! It has light gray velour seats and they show everything!!

    • Larissa says

      This would be perfect for that, April. You will love it!

  2. Sue Pagels says

    Sure seems like it would clean just about anything! My husband’s 2003 GMC Sierra could sure use some of this steamy lovin’!!

    • Larissa says

      I even had some chemical stains that were left by the previous owner that came out. I am over the moon!

  3. Kim Schultz says

    That’s an awesome little thing! The size would be great for me due to my arthritis. Starting my Christmas list!

    • Larissa says

      That’s the best part. Super-easy to use, especially for me as with all I do my elbow and wrists give me trouble. It has a locking trigger to ease your grip ache.

  4. Sharon Holbert says

    Wow! We have five drivers in our house and we all drive OLD vehicles! I’ll have to throw the dice for which car gets the cleaning first. However, what I would really want to try it on is the dirty, disgusting walking path through our family room carpet!

    • Larissa says

      You sound like the future us…hahaha… This would be perfect for you, Sharon!

  5. Mary T says

    This is awesome!! I could find soo soo many uses for this tool!!! I also admire you and everything you do!! Thanks so much for sharing everything and for allowing us the opportunity to win something like this!!

  6. Debra Matovic says

    Holy cow!! That is exactly what I have been looking for! We have an older cat who is having some bathroom issues due to arthritis and going out and renting a carpet cleaner is not always in the budget, and those carpet cleaning chemicals in a can bother most everyone in the house. This would be perfect to help with her little accidents and avoid killing the budget and suffocating everyone in the house with chemical smells!!!!

    • Larissa says

      I hear you on that, Debra. Cleaners can be so expensive and ain’t nobody got the time to rent one over and over. Plus, chemical free is the best!

  7. christina kintyhtt says

    Love love homeright products would love to ad to my sprayer and shelter there products are amazing and I’m sure this will just ask amazing ask there other products !

  8. Alison S says

    I would clean my van!

  9. Amy says

    Love that this doesn’t use chemicals! Is the upholstery damp from the steam when u finish?

    • Larissa says

      The best part! Just a slight dampness, but it doesn’t take long to dry as it is so hot from the steam.

  10. JILL NELSON says

    All my kids are teenagers now so we have 5 cars using up all the neighborhoods’ parking! I believe we go right down the list of cars – by the time we got #5 finished, no doubt it will be time to redo #1!!

  11. Kari says

    What a great birthday present this would make for my husband! He’s the car caretaker in our 4-vehicle household!

  12. Karen Ploransky says

    Oh My Gosh, I was just telling my husband how much I want one of these to do our bathrooms and tile floors (to begin with). Loved the video!

  13. Kenda Collins says

    We also have a Suburban; I think the previous owner drank pop in there as if he was celebrating a NASCAR win. Shake up the bottle and let fly! That would be the first thing I’d tackle. Thanks for the chance to win, Larissa!

    • Larissa says

      That is hilarious!! I will always own a suburban. The only vehicle that can fit kids and furniture, plus is 4 whell drive!

      • Suzanne says

        When my kids were little and I had a van, I’d rent the big machines at the grocery store to do my floors, and pay an extra $10 to get the upholstery wand. I would do my coych and chairs, then take all the seats out of the van and do the floors and ceiling as well as the doors. Then I’d do all the seats and put them back in. Nothing cleans/deodorises like steam.

        • Larissa says

          I love it for cleaning my grout in my tile too and my drapes. So many uses!

  14. Anna says

    We would love to have this …can’t afford the car detail prices! Thanks for the chance to win…

    • Larissa says

      Plus detailing uses chemicals in most instances. You bet!

  15. Linda Johnston says

    My best answer to the question is EVERYTHING! My patio, car, leather sofa, carpet and, oh my, the list could go on and on. I REALLY need this!!

  16. Ainsley says

    We basically live in our car during football season. (My husband coaches and my oldest plays) This would definitely come in handy!

  17. Deb Flowers says

    Awesome handy tool. Who doesn’t need one? Thanks for making me aware of it. Winning it would be fantastic!

  18. Deb Wostmann says

    Nice cleaning tool to have.

  19. Maureen says

    I have 2 cars and both the floor mats in each need to be cleaned.

  20. Norma says

    I would sooooo clean my car and couch with this. 🙂

  21. Cheryl B. says

    My truck could sure use this machine with 2 saint bernards and the kids.

  22. Donna Danna says

    My ten year old car could use a good scrub. Just have to find a power source. Live in an apartment so maybe visit and clean. Maybe my son would like to do his truck too.

    • Larissa says

      Ours are older and we don’t mind as they are our and no loans. YAHOO!! I think you can use it most anywhere, Donna. 🙂

  23. Sandi Allen says

    I would clean my Jeep. It has so many spills and stains.
    This is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  24. melinda says

    Love the little video:) lol…..I so need to clean my car as well,we are on a pension and can’t afford to have it done professionally,this would be just what we need,since my car is a 2004,it is in need of a bath!!

    • Larissa says

      tee hee…thanks! At least your car in the 2000’s ha! You will love this.

  25. Susan says

    I like the relatively small size of this little powerhouse !

  26. Carol S says

    Yes, yes! What a great looking product. Old cars around here that need some special TLC. Thanks for the info and the opportunity to win!

  27. Karen Sweitzer says

    This looks awesome, I’m just curious to know if it would really clean my dirty car!! Would love to find out!!

    • Larissa says

      If it did my old beast, then you know it will do yours. Hope you win!

  28. Ashley says

    I would clean my Jeep that my dogs love to ride in.

  29. Kimberly says

    Thanks so much for this product review. Can’t wait to see what I can get clean(er)!! I have also seen these give a chemical free crevice clean to toilets. Can I get a fist bump for germ killing?

  30. Fran says

    OMG – Not just for new/young families – I’m 66 and still have car seats in my car!….LOVE adventures with my grandbabies!! AND, chemical-free, HUGE bonus!!

    • Larissa says

      Exactly. I plan to be a grandma to dozens some day! Congrats to you. 🙂

  31. Tracy says

    That is a great product. Do you think you can use it on tile in your bathroom too? Thanks.

  32. Debbie says

    Oh, that sounds like a great tool to have not only for our personal vehicles but our company ones as well!!

    • Larissa says

      Yep, especially being that I own an old company vehicle. tee hee. 😀

  33. Renee' says

    The first thing I clean would be our “new to us” pickup. The prior owner had a little long haired white dog. Well, there are copious amounts of that white hair throughout our supposedly clean pickup that we purchased. The pickup also smells like little white haired dog when it gets warm in there. Might have something to do with the left over hair! There is no doubt in my mind that a good old steam cleaning would remedy the problem!

  34. Heather says

    My car first, then all the rest. There’s also a little kitty spot I’d like to try it on. What a great little machine!

  35. Judy Black says

    Wow!! I would clean my camper !!

  36. Dana says

    I’m amazed — and I would clean our SUV in a jiffy!

  37. Karen says

    Oh man, I need this for my van!

  38. Sian says

    I really need one of these!!

  39. Tina Quinn says

    You are the Queen of Clean with this beauty. Thanks for posting it. It’s always good to get a “real” recommendation!

    • Larissa says

      hahaha…a title I will cherish forever. 😉 I’m all about only promoting things I would use myself.

  40. Kelly Youngblood says

    In addition to cleaning our cars, I would use this to clean the bathroom (shower doors and tiles), for window cleaning and also small appliances.

  41. Patty says

    I was just kind of forced to buy a newer car and I found as 2015 with just 3,000 miles on it so that doesn’t need a lot of cleaning but . . . . . Inside our house we have 2 big dogs and 2 cats. One of our dogs is 12 and has cancer so she has a few “accidents” and when I say a few I mean a lot. One of cats also likes to eat so much that she throws up and of course it has to be on our light covered rug. I no longer use any chemicals to clean so this would be a wonderful product for our house.

    • Larissa says

      Pets are wonderful, but they are like anyone else and TLC. This would be perfect.

  42. Suzanne Mathes says

    My husband’s truck finally died and now he uses mine exclusively. I LOVE my truck and have always taken special care for it. Poor thing. He’s a busy man and cleaning is not on his radar. I would absolutely give my truck a good cleaning then start on my car. What an awesome machine!!

    • Larissa says

      Ouch to watch, but I know what you mean. My husband will be getting mine soon so I can get a newer one. Yay!

  43. Cecilia says

    That is so cool! I’d clean my husband’s truck – between work and the dogs, it’s rather dirty inside! Or I’d use it to spot clean the rug where the cat throws up. Love that it’s chemical free!

  44. Candy Walsh says

    What a great giveaway! I’ve been wanting one of these forever! I have a little handheld clothes steamer but it only lasts about 2 minutes and you can’t tip it or the scalding hot water will come out (not a good idea, lol). I would love this for my car among other things! And I don’t have young children, they’re grown and moved out but…I do have a husband, enough said!!!
    Thanks for the great opportunity! Again, you rock!

  45. Laura says

    I have been down for the count since Aug. 7th. Fell off a step ladder. Sooooo……My Husband had been driving my car rather than his truck. The last time I rode in my car, was visiting the Doctor. I almost had a heart attack. This product would really come in handy. I love your blog. I have sifted out alot, but yours remains one of my favorites. Thank you.

    • Larissa says

      Oh no, Laura!! So sorry to hear that…no fun. Thank you for keeping me on the A list. 😀

  46. Elizabeth A. says

    The first thing I would clean is my shower. I hate using chemicals in an enclosed space.

  47. Angela Williams says

    I would clean the inside of my car first!

  48. Tina W says

    My Dad’s car! I’ve driven him to countless dr’s appointments in the past year, and it could definitely use a good cleaning.

  49. Maria says

    My 16 year old mini-van that is being handed down to my teenage son. We haul everything for our DIY projects in it and it’s our go to vehicle for hauling the pets around as well…..

    • Larissa says

      Awesome he gets some wheels and it could be cleaned too!

  50. Deb Gotham says

    This is the perfect size for me in my tiny apartment and has so many uses! This would be so great especially since my old machine quit on me last week ! Thanks for this opportunity!

  51. SONJA HANSEN says

    My car could definitely use this, and I can think of so many other uses in and about our home.

  52. Lynne says

    Wow–the list is endless! Car, truck, trailer,–does it do well on the kids? 😉
    Thanks!!

  53. Raye Marie says

    Perfect for the car!

  54. Karyn says

    I’d love to try it on my car and on my outdoor rugs!

  55. Stacy says

    I would start with my car! Then on to everyone’s cars! I have many driving children! Haha, young adult. ; )

  56. mary ballerin says

    Oh, I would clean my car’s mats and seats first! I avoid chemicals because of my health. My car’s interior is beige because of my shedding dogs. It doesn’t hide any dirt, but the fur blends in. 😉

    • Larissa says

      We all should avoid chemicals, and this would certainly help with those fur babies. 🙂

  57. Brandy Jones says

    This would be awesome to clean out my truck!

  58. Gwen Clark says

    First, I would clean the jute rug I have in my kitchen. Next would be my lovely old Subaru. Then I would use it on my dining room chairs. Maybe I wouldn’t have to recover them! AS soon as I get your email, I open it to see what you are up to. I don’t know how you keep your head above water with 6 kids and all that you do, but I am so impressed. My best to you, your beautiful children, and your hard-working husband. You are blessed and deserve to be.

    • Larissa says

      Wahoo!! Sounds like a game plan, Gwen. Thank you so much for the love.

  59. Carol Prygo says

    I would LOVE to have this machine. My vehicle needs to be cleaned so badly. This machine would do wonders to make it clean. Thank you Larissa for the opportunity to win this wonderful machine!!!!

  60. Rebecca Drake says

    I would love to have one of these. I could even use it on my furniture at home!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  61. ruby says

    what a great machine! Carpets! definitely carpets! Thanks so much for being here!

  62. Suzanne says

    Not just cars…tiles, toilets, bathtubs, walls, floors, Windows, etc… And steam actually disinfect. I want one.

  63. Gail says

    Well this looks great. I loved the homeright paint sprayer. It worked as well as you said so I am thinking about this now. I like endorsements from real people who have used items and prove it. That is the best way to judge. Thanks for sharing

    • Larissa says

      That’s what I’m all about, Gail. I’m pretty picky as to what I would recommend to purchase, so I make sure it stands to the test. This thing is sweet!

  64. Joan C says

    Definitely the car! And then the carpets and floors!?

  65. Darlene N says

    So many possibilities. I would start with my daughter’s car 🙂

  66. Nina Barr says

    I have used a steam cleaner for years on my hard floors. It just died after 10 years. Chemical free cleaning with steam works so well. I would love to have one for the car. thanks for the chance to win one.

  67. Karen S. says

    I would love this to clean my car seats. My husband loaded an old lawn mower in the back seat and the gas smell just hasn’t come out.

  68. Kyla Nunes says

    What would I clean first? Hmmm, his truck? My truck? The suburban? Let’s just make it a whole day of cleaning vehicles!!!

  69. Susan Welsh says

    Now this is a great gift for any car lover!! male or female. My sister washes her car every week and so does her son!!! they would love this!!This would be be great in my craft room…oh those dreaded paint spills!!!1

  70. Jenn Dynys says

    My van and some furniture, maybe our mattresses?

  71. Jessie says

    I would first clean our family vehicle, and then my husband’s car. Both are OLD and seen a lot of use with not enough cleaning :o)

  72. MARTHAIA says

    My couch & recliner would be like new after this steam cleaner machine got done with them.Thanks

    • Larissa says

      You bet they would! I have a tufted sofa I’m going to have a go at. Wahoo!!
