Thankfully the house is mostly bamboo flooring, but DS playroom (and the bedrooms) is carpet.
His playroom carpet whilst a dark mushroom colour, still gets pretty dirty. About once every couple of months I hand wash it (yes I am nuts) with a sponge to try and keep it looking half reasonable. But I was wondering if one of those steam mops you see on Telly with the carpet glider attachment thing might make the task less arduous.
You want a carpet shampooer, not a steam mop. A shampooer sprays soapy water onto the carpet and then sucks it back up along with (hopefully!) all the dirt and grime. A steam mop just sprays out steam and relies on friction to remove the grime, the steam loosens it but it won't lift anywhere near as much grime as a shampooer.
I have both a steam mop and a carpet shampooer, the amount of difference between how good they are at cleaning carpets is amazing.

Fidgets and other sensory hand held toys are a great way to encourage attention and concentration. We all love to rock on a chair and click our pens or chew gum to stay alert and attentive, so why not let children have functional and socially acceptable fidgets too, to help them learn and keep them focused on learning.
