I dreaded the thought of mopping my floor every day. Trying to get rid of the stubborn dirt and stains can be extremely tiring. After a while I could not stand it anymore and decided to find an alternative. After some research and consultations with friends, I learned about Bissell 1867 steam cleaner. As the name suggests, this steam cleaner is suitable for cleaning tiles, ground, hardwood and laminated floors. Bissell 1867 became famous mainly because it was deemed to be the most naturally safe steam cleaner of all. This steam cleaner does not make use of any harmful detergents or chemicals, it uses plain water. The mop used in this steam cleaner is also preferable to many because of the ease of operation and speed.
As stated above the main feature is that the cleaner does not work with any harmful chemicals. It uses just water however, it is recommended to use distilled water, as this will ensure a prolonged life for the steam cleaner’s internal filter. Another advantage is that the container heats up very quickly and within 30 seconds, the water is so hot that it starts to create steam. This water inside the container lasts for up to 15 minutes before you need to replace it.
The cleaner comes with a low profile pivot head and 360-degree swivel along with it to help clean areas that are difficult to reach like shelves and cabinets. The actual mop is available with terry cloth pad, which cleans the dirt spills. It has a ten and a half inch floor nozzle that complements the mop and serves the significant purpose of getting the mop around the corners with a relative ease. The steam cleaner also comes with beads that indicate when to change its filters and it has indicator light.
Apart from the obvious features mentioned above, the Bissell 1867 also has a good-looking handle, one extra mop cover, a carrying handle that is built in, fast release cord hooks and a wall mounted storage bracket.
