The search for Carpet
Both are reallly nice and at a very good price for the quality. I would choose darker as I have 3 young kids and all our rentals have had lighter coloured carpets which…
Have used both Enjo and Kenwood 2000 steam mop. Enjo just doesn't cut it for me - cold water alone doesn't clean a floor hygiencially enough…
