Saw an advert for a steamer on television that appears to be able to clean pretty much anything. Do they actually work? Has anyone got any experience with them?
And they appear to be able to get creases out of clothes too? Is this right?
Mixed reuslts. Admittedly I've got an old school steamer and it gets dirt and pet hair out the rugs really well, but can't say it does much to our fabric sofa.
Never used it on clothes.
I always take these adverts with a pinch of salt. I remember getting excited about a paint roller that you tip the paint inside. It then supposed to dispense it when applied to a wall.
I bought one and didn't finish a wall before the pressure I was applying to get the paint out of it casued the plastic housing to explode into numerous pieces. They didn't show you that on the advert.
Thought of you today. GroupOn have got a 5-in-1 floor steamer for sale at £49.99 at the moment.
Didn't deliver to France. If I could find a simialr deal here I'd be sold!
My ex had a steamer and it made beautiful vegitables and all he needed to do was set the timer and go do someting else for 40 minutes. We also put chicken in there, with mixed results.
Steamed vegetables are really healthy as they don't lose the nutrients in the cooking process. We've got one too.
I think SN needs to clarify what sort of steamer they are talking about.
Hi, yes. I was talking about the steam cleaners initially.
However, I'm now thinking abotu getting a steamer for cooking vegetables. What brands do you recommend?
In my experience I would recommend a food steamer but not the steam cleaner unless it is very well priced.
BTW I believe you can also steam your vegetables in the dishwasher by placing them in a water tight container!
