Having the oldest child in school and the middle child in daycare is bound to mean one thing for us each winter….plenty of germs. Unfortunately for us this year we were part of the unlucky population to catch the dreaded flu in January. Fast forward to two weeks ago when I was looking to clean my entire house for a birthday party for both of my boys. I knew I wanted to clean as effectively as possible and thank goodness Reliable Corporation, manufacturer of innovative steam cleaning appliances, was there to help me!

My take: At first I was skeptical that this unit would step up to the job because it is small compared to any other I have seen. In no time at all this mighty machine proved me wrong. After reading the manual and orienting myself to all of the accessories I was quickly on my way to sanitizing my home. Hands down my favorite place to use my EnviroMate BRIO EB250 is in the bathrooms. The accessories make reaching all the nooks and crannies a cinch to clean. The boys bathroom was by far the worst with built up soap and toothpaste crammed in every imaginable space. Within 10 minutes their bathroom countertop and fixtures looked brand new.
I love so many things about this unit. It is small enough to fit in tight spaces, it has wheels for easily keeping up with you when you are cleaning floors, there is a place to store the handle when not in use and there are so many attachments I have not found a single thing that I could not access and get completely clean. You fill up the water tank with the provided funnel and measuring cup, turn the unit on and wait until the green light is activated (takes about 5-7 minutes). It is important to remember before using the unit to activate the trigger handle to release any built up water (I just squirted the water into the sink). Once you have done that pick your accessory and you are ready to clean. Pick your pressure by using the dial pressure gauge and you are on your way.
There are only two things I would change and believe me they are minor- the EnviroMate BRIO250 comes with a carrying case for all the accessories. I would suggest changing the color from black to any other color. It is difficult to locate the small pieces (most of which are black). In the same vein I would also like a small zippered pouch to put into the accessory bag so you can store all the smaller pieces.
I have tackled counters, floors, bathtubs, toilets, baseboards, kid/baby toys and kitchen appliances and am so happy with the results. Each surface is super clean and I didn’t have to use any chemicals which is really important to me since my 7 month old will be crawling around in no time at all. Now that the party is over and my house is clean I am ready to tackle the bedding!
