- heavy duty barbecue grills
Released by Jenny Wood: EDT 19: 25 on April 18, 2014 | update: EDT 19: 34 on April 18, 2014 thinking about spring cleaning this weekend?
I 've always dreamed of a clean way to kill 99 bacteria without a chemical?
This will require minimal elbow grease for everything from floor and carpet to window, sofa, faucet, tile
Even unfreeze your fridge?
If so, steam cleaning is for you.
Suddenly the country became hot and annoying, and John Lewis reported sales of steam cleaning equipment soared 94 last year.
While cloth and spray usually remove dirt only from the surface, high
Pressure Steam can penetrate deeper into corners and gaps, kill stubborn particles with tap water, and kill everything from bacteria to mold.
It does not leave a chemical, combined with dust, to prevent it from escaping into the air, and most importantly, it will eliminate mites.
Most people even claim to clean Chesterfield's couch.
It all sounds great, so what's the point?
Critics complain that it can take up to six minutes for water to turn into steam, that many steam engines have high "faff factors", buttons are complex, instructions are minimal, and there are a lot of confusing attachments.
Then, in fact, you still need to wipe afterwards to get rid of the falling dirt and excess water.
So, is this a new golden age of steam, or is it just a pile of heat?
Jenny Wood put eight of the best.
Sell models to testers. . .

Brush the attachment to make my grout look like new. The downsides?
It is not very good at the top of the greasy oven, and in the maximum setting it produces a lot of excess water.
Conclusion: It's great for tricky little work, especially in the bathroom. 4/5 BEST ALL-

A wise kettle
Like shape, it sits happily on the surface of your work.
Again, really, because got up and steamed for nearly three minutes.
Once filled with water, it is quite heavy and the wires are shorter than most.
The lid of the tank is strong, but it is difficult to unscrew;
I waited more than an hour.
I think before it cools down
Be able to open it and empty the water.
There are many tools on the steamboat, but there are very few instructions for use;
Still, this is useful for small jobs like sanitizing children's toys, and the spatula attachment is the best I have tested when removing grease from the stove.
Conclusion: The design is simple, but the weight is large and the use is not much. 2/5FOR NON-

Stop the floor cleaning when the hose becomes a handheld gun.
The luxury steamboat looks like a chubby yellow lady and needs enough cabinet space, says Jenny.
This manual looks like war and peace, but it's mainly because it has a part of almost every language on Earth.
More charts and tips will help, although it's a clever thing to pour vinegar on the scale before steaming.
It takes about three minutes for the refuel tank to heat up, and although it is not very quiet, it is very powerful --
Even if the dial only appears half the time.
The mop attachment made my kitchen floor light.
After I finished, I simply undid it and blitzkrieg the inside of my sink and pedal bin with hose and gun (
Where chemical cleaners fail).
I would like a little bit of a brush like grouting, but on top of that it is impressive.
Conclusion: big and powerful for those who take steaming seriously.

Inside the base, this means there is no need to take root in the cabinet.
It's a trendy red design, sitting on the floor, but it's not too heavy, it's only a piece of A4 paperFootprint of size.
There is a long hose and while the steam gun looks basic, it provides a powerful explosion and has a handy lock to keep steam out of use.
It cleans the floor thoroughly and is also good at smaller jobs such as polishing the working surface and refreshing the sofa.
It was heated in about three minutes.

I was so energetic that the fabric fell off my head-
But the amount of dirt it collects is very obvious.
Having said that, I'm not sure if the vibration function is too different --

4/5 small and simple steam mop, £ 39.
This pocket flat steamer is designed to clean large and flat areas such as windows and tiles, or is used to disinfect bedding and is one of the smallest and cheapest steamer on the market.
Jenny said: in good terms, it is not easy to start.
Just put a washable cleaning pad on the base, fill the tank and insert it.
However, instead of taking 30-
As claimed on the box, I'm still waiting for three minutes.
However, once it starts to work, its use is simple enough, perfect for running on mattresses and pillows like an iron to disinfect them (
Steam will eliminate dust that can aggravate allergies).
It also performs quite well on the tile, but due to the short bending, the steam output is mild and there is no attachment, it is only useful for a flat surface.
Conclusion: only mattress and plane are good.
