Product Description

Why Steam?

Steam cleaning is a highly effective way to clean your home, using high temperature steam to break down grime and eliminate harmful bacteria. As well as being hygienic, steam cleaning eliminates the need for additional chemical cleaners. The incredible cleaning power of steam can eliminate 99.9% of harmful bacteria around the home, leaving every surface spotless and hygienic for a healthier home environment.

Vax S4 Grime Master

The Vax S4 Grime Master gives you the tough cleaning, grime busting power of steam in a versatile, handheld design. It's great for hygienically cleaning a wide variety of surfaces all around your home--windows, upholstery, tiles, mirrors and much more.

Removes stubborn grease and grime
Removes stubborn grease and grime

The high temperature of the steam breaks down grease and grime, kills bacteria, dust mites and other allergens, helping to keep your home clean and hygienic. As it doesn't use any cleaning solution it's kind to the environment, and its compact design means it's easy to store.

Tools for cleaning windows, tiles, mirrors, upholstery and more

Easy to use

Simply fill up the Grime Master with water, switch it on and wait just two minutes for it to heat up. Once the green light comes on, it’s ready to go. Press the trigger to release the steam. You can use the dial to vary the steam pressure from low to high, depending on the job in hand. A full tank of water provides around 10 minutes steaming time.

7-piece accessory kit

With a 7-piece accessory kit included, you've always got just the right tool for the job. To use one of the tools, first fit the concentration nozzle then attach the tool and twist to lock.

You can use the concentration nozzle on its own to remove soap scum from a bath or shower enclosure and to clean heavily soiled areas in your kitchen. The brush tool is ideal for cleaning a wide variety of surfaces from tiles, sinks, toilets and oven tops, while the squeegee tool leaves your windows, tiles and mirrors gleaming.

For cleaning upholstery or clothes, unclip the squeegee part and attach the upholstery cleaning cloth. This cloth can be washed by hand or in your washing machine, then allowed to dry before using again.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Vax S4 Grime Master 24 Mar 2011
    By M Low
    I have borrowed steam cleaners from friends before but was delighted to get one of my own. I would say this is by far the most compact and easy to use steamer I have used. The steamer can be operated using one hand. (Some of them I have used required you to hold the steamer in one hand and a hose connected to it in the other which is very awkward). This allows you a free hand to steady yourself if you are reaching into corners or a free hand to clean with after using the steamer.

    It comes with a range of attachments - these include a simple 15cm long nozzle, a small circular brush that fits on the end of the long nozzle, a window-cleaning attachment and a couple of elasticated flannel covers that fit into the window cleaner for use on furniture. Of course, you can also use the thing with no attachments at all. There is also a plastic beaker for measuring the correct amount of water that you can pour in to the tank (260ml).

    For those of you who have not used steamers before it does not eliminate the need to use elbow grease but what it does do is make cleaning much easier and quicker. It is also great for crevices that are difficult to clean. The steam forces the dirt on allowing you to wipe it away.

    I have used the steamer on tiles and shower screen in the bathroom. It is great for cleaning the scum of the grout. There is a round brush attachment that comes with the steamer but I always use an old toothbrush with the steamer for this job. It is also great for mirrors, sinks and toilets. What is does is removes the germs that you cannot see as well as they dirt you can see.

    It great to cleaning the inside out outside of oven and grill doors but you cannot use it inside because of the danger with electrics and steam!

    4.0 out of 5 stars I Got Steam Heat! 9 Mar 2011
    By Diziet TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    I've seen steam cleaners advertised around the place and they seem like a good idea. So I was happy to get an opportunity to try one out. O.k. so - it is good, it is useful, but it's not going to suddenly turn your home into a gleaming germ-free palace. A little elbow grease is still going to be required and it's not going to take over every cleaning job in the house. But for some jobs, it has quickly made itself pretty well indispensable.

    What do you get for your money? A 3metre/10ft mains cable. That is a sensible length, I think. Long enough to give you flexibility to move around, not so long that you'll be tripping over it. A range of attachments - these include a simple 15cm long nozzle, a small, stiff brush that fits on the end of the long nozzle, a window-cleaning attachment and a couple of elasticated flannel covers that fit into the window cleaner for use on furniture. Of course, you can also use the thing with no attachments at all. And a plastic beaker for measuring the correct amount of water that you can pour in at one time (260ml).

    The instructions are all in pictures - no multiple languages. They are straight-forward. Unscrew the large grey nob and pour in 260ml of tap water. Screw down the nob, plug in, switch on - make sure the safety catch is set to ON while it is heating up. A red light shows that the power is on and a green light signifies when the machine has reached a working temperature. There is also a calibrated switch which allows you to select the power of the steam jet.

    Once the green light is on, flick the safety switch to OFF and press the trigger. That's it really. It takes about 2.5 to 3 minutes to heat up. 260ml of water doesn't seem a huge capacity but it lasts for long enough.

    The only reason I award one star is because no stars is not an option.

    I ordered this a few days ago on free delivery and, as ever, Amazon excelled and it arrived this morning.

    I had high hopes, not least because of the very favourable reviews hereon. I decided to try it out on our Ikea chair pads with white cotton covers. The result: after a lot of gurgling and spitting and some steam, not a steam-cleaned pad but a sodden pad, looking beige instead of white.

    The steamer comes with a label asking that those with a problem phone VAX before returning; it's the first time I've seen such a sticker on an appliance. So, I phoned VAX and explained the problem. What I really wanted to know is this: did I have a faulty steamer and should I seek a replacement from Amazon? The answer I got from VAX astounded me: "The product is not designed to be used at an angle because the heating element is in the base." VAX didn't need to explain the technicalities, since I understood immediately: you lose steam power when you tilt the steamer and end up with a mixture of steam and gurgling water (and sodden chair pads!)

    Amazon's photos show the steamer being used at an angle and Amazon's description states "1 × Matress (sic) / Upholstery tool". By contrast, VAX told me: "the machine is not designed to do this", despite VAX's User Guide, on page 5, containing a drawing of the steamer being used at an angle of 45 degrees to clean the arm of a sofa!

    When I pointed out to VAX that the Mattress / Upholstery tool, when attached to the steamer, sits at an angle of 45 degrees, thereby making it impossible to steam the bottom of a chair without tilting the steamer itself 45 degrees, they still advised that the steamer is not designed to be tilted: "it must be held straight".
