If you spend any time on the internet, you’ll know there’s always a new cleaning hack. This time, it’s a Kmart cleaning hack… but does it work?
Kmart Cleaning Hacks & Using Steam to Clean
Kmart has inspired a cult-like following, with its excellent range of plastic ware, cheap shoes and surprisingly wearable clothing. On its hallowed shelves, you might find the answers to all your cleaning problems!
First There Was the $99 Kmart Cleaning Vacuum
In 2017 following a wave of positive social media, the $99 upright Kmart vacuum shot to home-cleaning fame, sucking up more dirt and dust than its pricey counterparts. Despite the short cord, lack of manoeuvrability and extra weight, this vacuum became an overnight sensation (strangely enough, people get excited about vacuuming).
Now, Behold, The Steam Cleaner
It’s happened again. This time, a woman has reported that her Kmart steam cleaner has cleaned her stained stainless steel cooktop using its magical steamy powers. Her results have been replicated by some, and not be others. So why has it worked for some people, and not for others?

So What is The Best Way To Clean Your Stove?
Experts say that you should wipe down your cooktop straight after you’ve used it. A quick wipe down with surface cleaner keeps it clean with very little effort. If you have burnt food, or a build-up, then create a baking soda paste. Leave on for a bit and then use a damp cloth to rub away the dirt, the abrasiveness of the soda helps to take off set stains. You can use scrapers on glass cooktops.
If you want to invest in the $30 hand steamer, it might make your life a bit easier, or, it might not. Just be aware that a trip to buy Kmart cleaning gear results in many things sneaking into your trolley so this is another gateway to Kmart overdose!
