Rated 4 out of 5 by Bets quite satisfied
Overall I am pleased with the cleaning power of the steam sponge. Others have commented on the sudden bursts of steam and then the lack of steam, which I agree is a bit disconcerting, I've used the sponge attachment on granite countertops, shower walls, etc with very good results. I used the brush attachment to tackle a built up greasy mess (outdoor grill) with equal results. I have not used the other attachment yet. While this steamer is not a miracle worker, it has allowed me to cut back on chemicals and is well worth the price. I am extremely disappointed that replacement scrub brushes are no longer available.

I was excited to receive my steam sponge in the mail just knowing that this would make my cleaning chores easier, however, I was very disappointed on the first usage. It only works with the sponge attached and you have to continuously pump the trigger to get it to work. When I attach the steam concentrator tool, it does not work at all.
I was so sure that this little machine was going to do a great job I threw away the packaging, otherwise I would be returning it. I have other Bissell products that are outstanding, but this one gets a thumbs down

I bought myself a Sponge cleaner as a Christmas present. At first I thought it was broken because it took longer than 30 seconds to warm up. I used it on my counters and glasstop stove. Beautiful! Then I tackled the bathroom. I had just had an overnight with my 8 year old nephew. It softened the sink scum (mostly toothpaste) with ease and all it took was a quick wipe with a wet cloth. The same with the tub and outside of the toilet. I might add here that my mother was a maid in the 50's and taught me how to clean. I don't know what the customers are complaining about. Did they think the dirt just disappeared? Look it makes cleaning that much easier WITHOUT harsh chemicals. My home is clean and I didn't have an asthema attack!

I just wanted to clean my glass enclosed shower and the steam---well I could actually blow harder than that steam comes out---not sure what this little guy could clean but it's not my shower

maybe its just me, but i just went to clean my very soap scummed shower and the only thing it did was melt the soap scum and smear it all over. i had to use an entire bottle of tylex to get the shower clean. maybe my shower was just too dirty. (hadn't been done in a while) i also have minerals in the water and that leaves its own mess behind. i was hoping i could just go over the shower and it would be clean. i love my floor steamer and wouldnt be without it. i guess i was hoping this would do the same kind of magic. like presto and its clean.

The only reason I did not give this product 5 stars is because the sponges do not adhere as well to the unit as I would like- the front of the sponge is a little loose.
I've just moved into an apartment which had decades of grim on the metal kitchen shelves (people had put layers of adhesive shelf liners on them). Using the Steam Sponge I was able to get down to the original metal and there is no grime- this is not something that I think I could have done without steam.
