The things you wouldn’t expect to clean with steam

The things you wouldn’t expect to clean with steam

Learning to clean with steam is one of the best habits people have, not only, the eco-friendly consumers. By now you know perfectly well the advantages of steam cleaning: a clean, healthy, and sanitized house. You also know that you don't need any kind of detergents because the power of steam dissolves dirt and neutralizes dust mites, germs, and bacteria. Forget chemical products!

It’s not impossible! You will not go without the feeling of freshness you feel in your home any longer: no unpleasant odors or detergent scents that linger for too long, with the mistaken conviction that deep down cleaning means drowning in perfume.

We have learned how to get our bathrooms, kitchens, mattresses, carpets, floors, and windows perfectly clean.

But what don't you know yet? The list of objects you can clean with steam is much longer than you can imagine. Some examples?

Clean with steam: barbecue


Remove residues from your barbecue after summer parties. Dissolve grease and sauces from the grill and other parts of the barbecue. You can also clean the utensils: spatulas, tongs, and other tools will all be spotless for the next time your friends come over.

Clean with steam: car


Upholstery, windscreen, headlights, and also wheel rims and tires: that typical black residue made of tar and dust found on rims can be easily removed with high pressure steam, maintaining a distance of at least 8 inches.

Clean with steam: children's toys


Use steam on plastic toys, and also on stuffed animals to remove dust mites  (avoiding any electric parts). While you're at it, steam clean the changing table, the crib, the stroller...

Clean with steam: garden equipment


Remove crusted dirt from your garden tools with a powerful jet of steam and store them away without worrying that they will leave bits of soil everywhere.

Clean with steam: drains and traps


Use steam to clean sink or shower drains and dissolve the dirt that produces unpleasant odors. Rinse, steam again, and toss in a few spoonfuls of baking soda.

Clean with steam: the top of cabinets


If it is safe for the material, after dusting, clean the top of cabinets with steam.

Clean with steam: what you don't expect


Wondering how to sanitize toothbrushes? Deliver light steam directly on the toothbrush, keeping the source at least 8 inches away, and remembering to place the toothbrush where the bristles can dry easily in order to avoid the formation of bacteria.

Clean with steam: range hood filter


You can easily dissolve the grease deposited on the range hood filter. If you want to clean the hood itself, remember to disconnect the electricity, cover all electric parts with waterproof material, and dry everything perfectly before reconnecting the power.

To clean with steam without concerns, choose a product suitable for all surfaces. One example is Vaporetto Polti, that is perfect not only for daily cleaning, but also for special cleaning, thanks to its large accessories equipment.
