Here is the one I bought and - it is one sale! But beware: You will get hooked on Joy Mangano products. Her huggable hangers transformed my closets and I keep buying them to do the other closets. I have the neatest closet in town now, LOL.

I can't believe how good this little steamer is. And it even has a retractable cord, wh/ I love - and comes in colors (wh/ may not mean much to some people but I like for all my closet stuff to match - why not???)

Default Pearl Scents

I have one, if any of you have the product "Pearl Scents" air freshener by the company Renuzits, you can make them last longer by adding a little water to the pearls when you see them start to get smaller and start to dry up. In about 10 minutes you will see the pearls swell up to their original size! I have had my same freshener for about 3 months and it smells and looks like i just bought it. Just add water and swish it around until all the pearls are wet and start to roll around. Sure beats spending 5 bucks every time on one

None. Have experienced none. I think it is b/c the way the nozzle is made. That is the problem I had w/ the THREE steamers I have bought in the past - all as travel steamers. I hated them all!!!!

This one is different. I highly recommend it. Get on the website and read customer comments on it - and see what others are saying. I like reading the ratings - people do mention the postives and any negatives, as well.

Good luck!

About enzymes...

I saw these mentioned in the tips, but wondered where you get them, are there different kinds for different purposes, and brands do you look for?

I buy my enzymes in a concentrated form. I get them from www.killmoldfast.com

The pet stores have a very expensive diluted form available in many brands and Wal-Mart carries the OUT! enzyme products. I prefer to have TONS of product on hand that I dilute myself for pennies on the dollar.

Thanks! Someone said Clorox II would do the job on grout, but I think I'll wait and try this.

The oxygen cleaners such as Clorox 2 are effective, but I have seen instances where it caused damage to poorly maintained grout. If you have sealed grout, you should be fine. If your grout is in fairly good condition but just needs a good cleaning, make sure you seal it after you get it sparkling clean.

How do you seal it? There's a grout sealer? As you can see, I'm not too well-versed in this kind of thing.
