    I bought a steamer to do the cleaning around the house. Has anyone ever used one? Do you think they are much good?

    When I saw the thread 'Steamer', I thought it was a welcome to a new member thread!
    And the name 'Steamer' meant (for me anyway), it could possibly be a new member with a revolving or rotating IP address!:ROFLMAO:

    I'm sorry Padraig, I'm not much help on a real steamer.

    I have used a steamer for cleaning floor tiles and was very impressed. It wasn't my own steamer and not in my own house (I was helping a family member). I was very impressed although not impressed enough to buy one for my own house.

    I do not think they make the floors shine, but they serve the purpose I guess. And they do not go smoothly over the floor after a bit so I felt like I was really pushing and pulling the thing. It may only be the one I borrowed though, maybe other brands would have been better.

    I have 3 dogs so I like my steamer for disinfecting purposes. It does not make my laminate floors look shiny as claimed though I use distilled water in it. It is not a virtually effortless process as demonstrated either. But if you have little creatures allowed in your home a steamer does help keep it fit for humans.

    It occurred to me after closing my message that I had just gone from reading about earthquake warnings, possible heresy with clerical infighting, revolving IP's, a lovely picture of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, to opinions on steam cleaners. There must be something for everyone on this forum.

    I used mine to strip wallpaper...worked great. Follow directions....don't tilt it too much...can ruin the heating element. Attachments for steaming clothing etc. cheap versions on eBay..got mine there;)

    Oh, yes....it works great for loosening dirt anywhere. Used mine on tile flooring.

    Thanks very much! The puppies were fun but dirty. I hope to take a week of work soon to redecorate and clean.

    I watched a programme one time about a Carmel in New York. The nuns used to rent a large appartment for their Carmel, run down and cheap . Then they cleaned it and decorated it. But as soon as they fixed the palce up the landlords always put the rent up and they had to move again.

    But in any religious house I love to see clean. St Paul of the Cross when checking up on his religious houses always used to check the cleaniless of the toilets out first. He reckoned if things were fine in the toilets every thing else would be fine.

    Clever man:)

    Whatever you do don't use a steamer on a laminate floor , a wooden surface or a painted surface...;);)

    we have a carpet cleaner which works by very hot water and it's excellent. With two dogs and my husband's propensity for traipsing around with mud on his shoes, the carpets do get grubby quite fast. A steamer sounds more versatile and you could use it in the car as well. I assume you are not a smoker but curtains would be easier to clean with a steamer.

    I'm sorry...I thought that you meant a hand held multi purpose steamer. ( little steamer)

    I also use a floor steamer by shark. I love it. I use it on my hardwoods....no detergent...except on tile flooring.
    You can buy replacement , washable cleaning pads on eBay cheaper than the shark company.

    Much more sanitary to use. When you are finished cleaning, remove pad, throw it in the washer and that's it. I'd buy another one in a heart beat.
