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.
I paid £99 for mine and was delighted with the cost for all the equipment that comes with it - they are now even cheaper at £89 which is a real bargain.
It is able to clean about every surface in my home leaving them with a brilliant streak free shine when dried with the micro fibre clothes
Filling is so easy - tip - use boiled water from the kettle and it's good to go in a minute. When refilling you need to switch it off or the cap won't unscrew - be careful when unscrewing and also re-filling when it's still hot as it will spit hot steam and water!
Like about every other reviewer I bought the pack of 20 cloths to use in conjunction with the steamer and these are essential and so easy to wash and re-use.
The bathroom gleams like never before you can get into awkward areas such as round the toilet where cleaning fluids collect and also the chrome taps are wonderfully clean :-)
You really won't regret your investment in this piece of kit...all I need now to do the housework is the hoover and this gadget and I'm good to go....
An added bonus is on alloy wheels...if you take the time every now and again to use the steamer and disposable towel they look like new and in between they are easier to wash and keep clean as the dust doesn't stick the same :-)
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 ›
