Home gifts: Decor, gadgets and moreShark Vac-then-Steam

Give the gift of germ-fighting clean. The Vac-then-Steam is a first-of-its-kind product that combines a vacuum and a steam mop for two-step functionality. According to tests conducted by Shark, the Vac-then-Steam cleans hard floors up to 120 percent faster than traditional methods while its powerful suction picks up even the finest particles from hard floor surfaces. A simple flip of a switch and the steam pad attachment quickly converts to steam mode: Super-heated, sanitizing steam combined with microfiber cleaning pads loosens, lifts and locks away dirt, leaving surfaces spotless --  eliminating 99 percent of germs and bacteria, including the viruses that cause H1N1.
