I love the British series, Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners. I like it even better than How Clean is Your House? and that was a favorite. I know the point of the show is to highlight that both ends of the spectrum are dysfunctional but I have to admit a certain amount of admiration for the compulsive cleaners. Don’t get me wrong, I understand that OCD is a serious disorder and I wouldn’t want to feel compelled to clean 15 hours a day. However, I’m impressed by some of their cleaning methods and tools.

If you’ve never seen an episode of Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners, here is a short excerpt:
Many of the OCD cleaners use a steamer to clean and disinfect everything from toilets to mattresses. I’m rather intrigued and this is now on my Amazon wishlist:
About a year ago I mentioned my desire for a steam mop on Facebook. I actually planned to buy one but when I started researching which one to buy I got confused over all the different brands and just gave up. And then a couple of weeks ago a friend asked if I’d ever bought one. When I told her no she insisted that I borrow hers to see what I thought of it. I loved it! Guess what? She insisted on giving it to me because she hadn’t used it in ages. The best part is that it leaves the floor almost dry so I don’t have to try to keep everyone and the dog out of the kitchen until the floor dries.
Okay, this next one is totally over the top. Especially the price. Good grief! This handy little gadget is a mere $1179.00. At least the shipping is free.
What about you? Have you ever watched Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners? Do you have a steam cleaner or steam mop? If the bacteria tester were a more reasonable price would you want one or would you rather not know the bacteria count on your household surfaces?
