The steam buggy I was talking about is something I bought about a year ago.... It's going to be hard describing it without sounding like an infomercial- I love this thing!
It looks like a really tiny canister vaccum. The canister holds water in a pressurized container. When you turn it on, it heats the water, and shoots it out through the wand and out whichever nozzle you pick- there's one for scrubbing, one for just cleaning, a floor brush, a carpet brush, and a squeegie. The thing is, obviously, hot because it's pure steam coming out.
This thing can clean everything, and the first time I used it on my disgusting rented apartment a few years ago, it was pretty impressive. After you steam, you wipe the gunk that it frees with a rag. It's perfect for toilets (don't have to touch or scrub anything), little spaces around sinks, and it's great on basically anything you want super clean.
One reservation I have, though, is the whole antibacterial effect. Basically, using this thing is like boiling your bathroom in water for a while- it indiscriminately wipes out all germs and bacteria. For that reason, I usually wash the bathroom with vinegar each week and save the steaming for once a month.
OH! One more thing.
We had a rampant case of fleas over the weekend. I mean bad. I'm still scratching at the huge number of bites I have. But, the steam buggy can basically kill fleas in mattresses and carpets. So we got rid of them.
Okay, enough advertising!
I don't sell these things, really.
