Thane H20 X5 5-in-1 Steam Mop Review

Like most people with children, my priority is to keep the house clean and tidy to provide them with a clean environment to live in; but sometimes I do worry about the safety of the products I use.  Sure enough they work efficiently and leave a glistening bath or tile behind and a fresh (and sometimes overpowering) fragrance but the dull ache I get in my head not long after using them tells me that they aren't as good for my body as they are for my home.

There are so many jobs around the house that require so much more than just elbow grease; for starters there's the oven (the thick sludgy grease and grime), the bathroom tiles (the mould and mildew), the carpets (which presents an attraction to an assortment of stains from trod in muck to toothpaste and chocolate) not to mention the floors and windows.  

It's hard to imagine not having to use any chemicals whilst you clean but in fact that's just what the H20 mop X5 5 in 1 Steam Mop from Thane Direct allows you to do.  If you research the dangers of Pthalates, PERC, Triclosan and Sodium Hydrochloride you will see why the conventional cleaning products make us feel so ill.  So to be able to clean without using these ingredients is no small feat for me.

As the name suggests, the Thane H20 X5 5 in 1 Steam Mop is a multi-functional tool which can conquer almost every household chore whilst killing up to 99% of bacteria. The innovative appliance uses the power of steam to clean carpets, hard floors, windows, garments, upholstery and just about every kitchen and bathroom job you can think of.

 We assembled the Thane H20 X5 5 in 1 Steam Mop with ease thanks to the self explanatory booklet. I started by using the mop on my laminate flooring and kitchen tiles and was pleasantly surprised by how well it glided across the floors, more importantly I felt I was blitzing away any germs with the hot bursts of steam and a bonus was the fact that floors sparkled.


The carpets also received a good spring clean and looked like new carpets once I had finished, the only minor irritant was when I attempted the stair carpet; the bumping against each step caused the carpet glider to constantly fall off which was a little disappointing but the rest of the jobs I attempted more than made up for the fact.

My mirrored wardrobes came up a treat using the window cleaning attachment, diminishing the many little hand prints and replacing them with a steak-free gleam.  Whilst the bathroom tiles which were dull with the pinky gunk that we get through living in a hard water area disappeared with ease.  

Every job was completed without any trouble because the steam cleaner is so light-weight and versatile.


There are so many wonderful things to love about this steam cleaner.  The fact that I can be sure that 99% of bacteria is killed in my household, ensuring that not only do my children have a clean environment to live in but even better the fact that I am not polluting the air we breathe with harmful toxins.  

If it was just these two facts alone I would be over the moon, but there's more....  The fact that the steam cleaner is so good at multi-tasking with just the use of plain old tap water means that I can put my purse away as I won't be needing to buy any more cleaning products again...  The only negative I can see about the steam cleaner is that sometimes it is nice to have a subtle fragrance whilst cleaning (although I do believe you can buy packs of fragrance from Thane Direct to put in the steam cleaner) but this is a small price to pay for the many advantages of this product.  

I also have a discount code for my readers- you can get 10% off if you order direct from Thane with discount code HOMESWEETHOME.

* I was offered the steam cleaner in exchange for an honest review


  1. I love my steam cleaner it's fab. It's such a versatile piece of equipment don't you think?

  2. I am on a mission to rid my house of chemicals and buy only natural products. I'm doing really well with the products but this is one little gadget that would make my mission complete! I particularly need it to clean my oven as I believe they are great for that too.

  3. This sounds like a dream! I also suffer headaches and allergies to various cleaning products, this would be so perfect for me. It covers so many aspects of house chores safely and effectively - it is an essential piece of cleaning equipment. Every household should have one!!!!
