I recently purchased a steam cleaner on Amazon.com and love it. I got the idea to search for one after seeing an infomercial for another steam cleaner on television. I jumped on my satellite internet, did a search to see if I could find one cheaper, and found one.
The model I bought is actually a no name brand model but it works wonderfully. I decided to take the plunge and purchase the product because of the many positive reviews that it received.
The steam cleaner is a small hand held steamer that resembles a pitcher. It’s blue, sturdy, well constructed, and easy to use. You simply fill it up with water and it’s ready to go. There is no on/off switch, you simply plug it in, but there is a light indicator to let you know when the machine is on.
Before using the machine you have to wait at least 5 minutes for the steam to warm up. For best results I allow the unit to heat for about 10 minutes. Don’t let it heat too long or the water will evaporate. The steamer has an automatic shut-off function that is activated when the water level is low.
The unit has many attachments. My favorite is the clothing attachment. I use the clothing attachment on the ironing board as I would an iron and it does wonders for getting rid of wrinkles in cotton clothing.
Even though the steam cleaner I purchased has no brand name and was incredibly cheap, it is well worth the money.
