I'm a big proponent of the trusty steam mop. As a proud owner of one, I find that they not only make cleaning floors a breeze, but they actually sanitize floors more effectively than your run-of-the-mill mop and bucket. And if you need an excuse to join the steam mop party, here's your personalized invitation: This highly-rated model that shoppers call ″magical" is 25% off on Amazon right now.

To buy: OApier S5 Steam Mop, $45 with coupon (originally $60) at amazon.com
Using it couldn't be easier. The steam mop starts working as soon as you move it across your floors, swooping up everything from stubborn tomato sauce stains to caked-on food splatters from your kitchen floors. A full tank can handle approximately 30 minutes of mopping, and it's compatible with nearly every floor type, including hardwood, tile, laminate, ceramic, marble, linoleum, and vinyl — making it a great cleaning tool for the rest of your home, too.
The mop features a retractable cord for easy storage, and it uses reusable cleaning pads that can be tossed in the wash, so you won't have to worry about wasteful disposable pads. And the best part? You can actually control the level of steam manually. The faster you move the mop, the more it releases steam, and it even turns off on its own when you stop moving it.
