Many people will question whether a new appliance launched on to the market is worth the investment? There are so many kitchen gadgets and appliances available in stores or online with new ones launched annually. Many offer promises of helping to make the job for which they are designed easier and more efficient thereby saving time and effort. Decisions on whether to add yet another appliance or gadget to our home is often based on budget and storage facilities. Budget is often determined by its frequency of use. A vacuum cleaner in a carpeted house is likely to be used weekly if not daily and therefore is a necessary purchase, but what about a steam cleaner - how often is it likely to be used?

The summer of 2012 is a talking point amongst many UK citizens. The wet weather has caused havoc to businesses, homes and many cultural and sporting events. Golf club managers have had to stop play due to golf courses becoming water logged. For golfers who have been able to play and are enthusiastic enough to brave the rain, return home with muddy shoes and clubs. Cleaning golf clubs can be a time consuming process depending on how much mud is lodged into the groves of the club head.

How often have you purchased an item of furniture, an appliance or home accessory and it has a sticky label stuck fast to it? This is particularly annoying when it can't simply be peeled off. There are various approaches to removing stickers depending on the type of surface it is stuck to.  For non-wooden items you can either use a wet cloth and hold it against the sticker until it softens sufficiently to remove or trying using a steam-cleaner for quick efficient results.

Stainless steel surfaces and cooker hoods are particularly prone to the accumulation of grease. While it is a known fact that there are cleaning products on the market that can cut through grease and grime in no time. These chemical cleaners are great, but they can be harmful to the environment and they aren't the sort of thing that you might want stored around small, inquisitive fingers and mouths. The alternative? Steam Cleaners

As the weather warms and the days become sunny and drier there is the urge to open windows and spring-clean the house. Armed with bucket, cloths and cleaning products we proceed to tackle the grime that has built-up over the cold winter months.  The thought of a gleaming home to welcome in summer is appealing, but, for many this presents a twofold problem; we want our home to be clean and to be free of germs, but we don’t really want it nor the environment covered in chemicals.  So can we learn anything from times past about how to keep our homes hygienic and clean?

Dust mites love to live and breed in mattresses. They feed on dead  skin cells shredded from our bodies daily. The faeces and dead bodies of mites are allergens to susceptible people, causing asthma,  rhinitis or dermatitis. The ideal home for dust mites is the mattress  because it's warm, often moist, cosy, easy to burrow into and full of  their favourite food. Just vacuuming them away isn't sufficient to keep your mattress free of dust mites.

The cold and wet winter days often brings with it challenges to keeping a house clean and domestic chores in order. This is particularly the case if you have children and pets running in and out the house daily. Removing shoes at the door does help to reduce the amount of dirt bought into the home.  But, pets shed dust from their fur and children from their clothing. If you have carpeted rooms in your home, then vacuuming is one of the most important chores to maintain its cleanliness as well as to keep them looking good for longer. But, just vacuuming your carpets is not enough although it is a necessity. Carpets, no matter what type, holds everything inside of it from dust, hair, mites, odors, dirt and stains. Using a steam cleaner regularly will further enhance a carpets look and feel by removing stains and deeply ingrained dirt as well as allergens.

The BBC News has reported a high incidence of the Norovirus or vomiting bug, which is sweeping across the country with as many as 200,000 new cases per week (8th February 2012). With those families affected comes the torrid task of cleaning-up the vomit particularly when bedding and carpets are affected. Cleaning-up after someone has been ill and not made it to the bathroom on time presents two challenges; one to remove the debris and the other to remove the odour.

Cleaning with a good quality steam cleaner is quick and easy, it cleans faster and more easily than conventional cleaning methods. No chemicals are required in the cleaning process.  A steam cleaner just uses ordinary tap water, which is heated to above 100 o Celsius, the dry steam that is produced loosens the dirt and germs, which are then collected on the cloth.

With winter now upon us we generally find ourselves using our ovens or hobs more often. The more we use them, the greater the likelihood of grease and grime build-up. For many of us, though we would love a nice shiny oven without having to scrub and scrape or use cleaning products which give-off nasty toxic fumes. Using a steamer to clean your oven is a much more environmentally friendly method and doesn’t produce any nasty smells.

Many of us are drawn to what we hear or read in adverts about the wonders of household cleaning products designed specifically for each job around the home. While ‘everything in moderation’ holds true for the use of cleaning agents, we must not loose sight of the fact that they do all contain powerful chemicals which some people may be sensitive to. The need to have clean homes and laundered clothes has resulted in cleaning agents being bought and used without questioning their effect on our children, our pets, the environment or us. However, with the focus now on caring better for our environment, there are alternative products available such as the use of steam cleaners which use just water at very high temperatures to clean just about every household surface, or the use of organic cleaning products.

There is a growing need to reduce our carbon foot print via reduction in the use of fuels and the release of toxins in to the atmosphere. Many house-hold detergent manufactures are addressing this important issue by using biodegradable ingredients in place of environmentally hazardous biologically stable detergents. The use of detergents free from non-essential additives like perfumes, color and brightening agents in minimal packaging will go a long way in assuring healthier and cleaner environment. But, an even 'cleaner' option is to avoid the use of cleaning detergents in your home altogether and invest in a multi-functional steam cleaner, which uses just water. This means you will also be cutting down on the expense of buying products needed to clean carpets, windows, hob, bathroom, kitchen, grouting and floors plus throwing less packaging into the bin or into recycling.

Today, there are many ways to approach any household chore. Cleaning windows is just one example.  The options commonly used involve a solution of warm water plus a detergent of choice, a sponge or squeegee  and a dry cloth. Other options include adding a mixture of vinegar, alcohol (isopropyl) and dish washing liquid mixed together into a spray bottle or just vinegar added to hot water. The use if a squeegee versus a sponge or cloth does mean that window washing can be achieved in a shorter time. There is an even quicker, smear-free option using a portable steam cleaner.

Having bought a domestic steam cleaner recently I found that many of my friends had no idea what I was talking about when I was describing my steamers various attributes so thought it would be useful to provide a short glossary of ‘steamy’ terminology.
