Can we be 100% real for a hot second? Everybody in the world (except maybe Oscar the Grouch) enjoys a fresh, clean living environment. But almost nobody enjoys the “tidying up” part!

Truth: if routine cleanup chores and laundry-day tasks were fun and easy, we would all live in spotlessly clean homes 24/7. But that’s not a reasonable expectation, is it? So at Kenmore, we decided to do the next-best thing: we’ve created a new generation of products designed with smart features that make everyday cleaning projects no big deal. Minimum effort for maximum results, making it easy to stay on top of your cleanup game without breaking a sweat. Read on for more…

Take Down the Toughest Tasks Like a Boss

Keeping your hard floors, carpets, rugs, and upholstery clean on a day-to-day, week-to-week basis can be tough enough, on its own. But when you add the challenge of removing stubborn, stuck-on messes from microwaves, ovens, stovetops, sinks, countertops, etc… it becomes tempting to put off cleaning for another day or two. Or nine.

That’s when Kenmore’s versatile 2-in-1 Steam Mop comes to the rescue! It easily powers away routine dirt and grime from all types of floor surfaces with sanitizing, chemical-free steam. Plus, it quickly and easily converts to a hand-held cleaner for eliminating scorched messes on stoves, nasty spots on tile surfaces, and even that smelly gunk on laundry appliance doors. Simple design, simple to use, simply spotless.

Versatile & Powerful: The Best of Both Worlds

Kenmore FeatherLite™ MAX Bagless Upright Vacuum, Effortless Clean

Take a moment and ask yourself: what would make everyday vacuuming less of a chore? We asked ourselves that question too, and came up with a vac that’s super-light and goes everywhere you want, delivers ample suction and cleaning power, provides True HEPA filtration for fresh indoor air, and easily converts into lift-up pod for cleaning stairs and furniture. And oh, yeah… a dust cup with 3X capacity so you won’t have to empty it as often. Sound good?

Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about these easy-to-use cleanup tools.

Q: What is the difference between a household steam-cleaner and a carpet-cleaner?

A: Generally, commercial and residential carpet cleaners are appliances that inject heated water and cleaning formulas into carpets, and extract the dirty cleaning solution from the carpet at the same time. A steam-cleaner is a much simpler device that powers away messes without chemicals, only steam, and it can be used on virtually any flooring surface.

Q:  What are the advantages and disadvantages of upright vacuum cleaners?

A: Upright vacs generally offer the best performance in terms of deep-down carpet cleaning, and today’s models also include detachable hoses with cleaning tools for above-floor cleaning as well. The main disadvantage is that they tend to be heavy, typically between 15 – 20 lbs. for a full-size model. By comparison, the Kenmore FeatherLite™ MAX upright vac is only 12.5 lbs. but still offers all the power and versatility of a full-size vacuum.
