But its worked out that i can use it for everything! cleaning turned into fun process and even mu husband who is not big fan of cleaning enjoying it now.
There are some tips i can give after I read some previous reviews:
@Floor becoming too wet. Not if you keep steam output on lower setting
@After first meter you spreading dirt around. Not if you overturn cloth. You can do it up to 4 times on one cloth.
@cloths are too expensive for what they are. You can create your own out of old towel. Just cut it to same size and off you go. For me i use 3 cloths for each room separately.
@little brush collects grease and after that it become ineffective. You dont have to buy another one. Just apply a bit of washing up liquid, press against kitchen sponge and release steam. steam will clear all grease out of brush and sponge will collect it.
The unit fits together easily and intuitively. The handbook is good and if you're a linguist in 28 languages! All very straight-forward.
Previously I used a mop-n'-bucket to clean the kitchen which has a ceramic tiled floor.
I first thoroughly swept the kitchen to remove all the loose stuff.
The unit came up to steam within the stated 8 minutes and kept up the steam pressure for the duration of the clean about 15 minutes.
The cloth pads get a bit grubby after around 2-4 square metres (proves their working) but this might be as previously I used a mop and was not happy with the cleanliness achieved.
The Kärcher towelling cloth pads are circa 15" by 8" so by turning and refolding you have 4 sides to use. I rinsed out the cloth each time I turned it to remove the worst grime. This is the same as rinsing a mop and not too much more effort.
I also used microfibre cloths which being 16" x 16" give 8 sides available by refolding as above and are easy to attach and use.
Both can be rinsed out and then washed in the washing machine & tumbled then ready for reuse.
The Microfibre cloth was most probably marginally better as it seemed to leave less water residue on the floor although cleaning wise no discernible difference.Read more ›
I was a tad perturbed that it does say not to use it on the oven; according to my friends' that's probably because the steam can damage the seals on the door, but just not to direct the steam near the seals - so I've not tried this yet. But I have cleaned my kitchen, and lounge. I have a leather sofa and I was astounded at the colour of the cloth after using the karacher on it. And oh, it was wonderful at cleaning the hob, which did have a fair amount of burnt on spills - tackled those easily. And that fatty sticky residue that is a bit of a bugger to remove..the karacher with the little brush on, easily cleaned it away.
My kitchen tiles are shiney and look fab; the black mould that had grown in the grouting behind the sink and no amount of wiping had removed, was easily blasted away. It cleaned the back pvc door and glass beautifully - there isn't a window attachment with this model, so I used my own squidgy thingy afterwards to remove the condensation; and again using the small brush attachement to scrub any stubborn spots and the glass came up lovely.
I have laminate floors and they were quick and easy to clean - and dried much quicker than when I use the mop. I had hoped they would come up lovely and shiney and they haven't..but I am in rented accommodation and the laminate is quite badly scratched.
There are a few niggles; the power lead could do with being longer. A few more brush attachements would have been nice, and I found the handle of the steam gun did get quite hot after prolong bouts of steaming. The cloths supplied are great; but not fantastic quality so I imagine the cloths will fall apart after a few uses and washes.Read more ›

A really good product. The window cleaner attachment which I bought separately is perfect for bathroom tiles (and windows!). I haven't found it particularly good for floors.Published 3 months ago by KHS

As other posters, we only used our machine a few times before the lid got stuck and wouldn't come off. Design fault but it was out of guarantee so had no joy with Karcher. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Maura
