Welcome! I posted my final post in October 2010 for the sole reason that for those who need it, it is the post I most want them to see. It was, for us, an answered prayer. I wish you the best of luck in your journey with food allergies, eczema, and/or asthma. I have since founded ChasingMotherhood. CONTACT: stopandenjoy@gmail.com XO

One of the greatest joys in life is reconnecting with dear friends, which I was lucky enough to do last week. And a very unexpected and added perk to my visit was learning about the Shark Steam Mop! I have been on a one-woman mission these past few weeks to become as knowledgeable as I can about the underlying causes of my son's allergies, eczema and asthma. While I am so grateful to "manage" his care, my goal now is to try to eliminate them at their root. Lofty a goal as it is, it feels good to be proactive. And one step I have taken joyfully is to bring the Shark Steam Mop into our home. Just plug it in, fill up the steamer with tap water, wait 3o seconds for the Shark to heat up, and clean away any sealed hard floor surfaces - the Shark "tackles tough grime, stubborn dirt, scuff marks, sticky messes and muddy footprints and features s a 10 1/2-inch cleaning path and leaves floors virtually dry." Just wash the pads after use in the washing machine in their own load and the Shark is ready again. Best part of all, "there's no refills or toxic, messy chemicals required making it environmentally friendly". Additional pads are sold separately and come with colored tabs to dedicate to specific rooms (bathroom, kitchen, etc.). Removing toxic chemicals from the home may not be the cure, but it's a step in the right direction!
