HomeSav and a New Mop!


My greener cleaning supplies.  Not shown is the bottle of bleach+water which I do use, even though it's not very green.  I think it's still a good compromise.
Thanks to other bloggers, I have recently discovered a website called HomeSav.  HomeSav highlights different items and brands that are offered at a discounted price, the sale lasting anywhere from 24 to 96 hours.  Most of the items are designer items that have a discounted price that is far above my normal paying range.  However, there have been a couple of good deals, including the one I ordered today.

I have been wanting a steam mop for some time now.  Ever since I went to cleaning "greener" (read the post here), I realized my disgusting mop and bucket of bleach-water is not how I want my floors to be cleaned.  Both Kelly and Stephanie have raved about their steam mops, so I've been keeping my eye on sales.

Today, HomeSav was highlighting a brand called Reliable which sells all sorts of steamers, vacuum cleaners, and irons.  Their steam mop is called the Steamboy T1, and after a bit of research this morning, I found that it is a great runner in the steam mop world.  The Shark, for example, gets up to 110 degrees F; this little guy gets up to 245 degrees F.  That's one hot mop!

I was also very pleased to see that the offer they had was a way better one than Amazon's.  Here's my little comparison:

Amazon: Steamboy T1 with one replacement pad and no extra filters......$75.00 (on sale from $99.00)
HomeSav: Steamboy T1 with SIX replacement pads and one EXTRA filter.......$72.00 (on sale from $99.00)

The only catch is HomeSav didn't give me free shipping, although I e-mailed them (since it said I was supposed to), so maybe they will fix the problem.  Even with their $9.95 shipping fee, however, it still was a better deal.  The replacement pads cost $13 for four, and the replacement filter costs $8.

(UPDATE: HomeSav refunded my shipping charge, so now it's a waaay better deal than Amazon.)

My new mop should be here soon.  In the meantime, it's really hard to be motivated to clean my floors knowing I have an awesome cleaning tool arriving this month!

  1. That's really cool, I have been wanting a steam mop for awhile as well...just another thing on our "when we have the money" list.

    I only made it entirely through peddler's market, and I didn't even go into most of them. I think we did more walking and enjoying the sunshine than actual "antiquing." Josh runs out of steam much faster than I do. He's not big on combing through every single case and corner to find something awesome.
