Strollers, high chairs, seats (over time) and dust, infiltrates everywhere in a car. If you don’t want to spend money on a job you can do yourself (and even better, in many cases), use your steam cleaner to make your car seem brand new. In no time, and only with a few ingredients you can find at home, you will manage to keep the dust at bay. Use a brush and a cleaning spray to remove stains – the role of the steam cleaner is to rinse them effectively. When they will dry out, you will be amazed at how clean your car upholstery is now! Repeat every month, or every few months, depending on your car usage (remember – even if you don’t use your car that much, dust still exists!).

Have you ever thought of sanitizing your mattress? Usually, nobody does. However, especially if you are prone to allergies, cleaning the place you use every night for 7-8 hours could be fundamental to your health. Move the steam cleaner over the surface of the mattress and easily remove all the dust mites. Then, let it dry for a few hours, before being able to use it again.

6. Clean Your Taps

You may think limescale is not that dangerous for your health – if you drink it or put it on your body, nothing is going to happen. However, even though you may not notice it, it is the quality of your tap water that can drastically change your skin. If you drink tap water and don’t use a water filter, limescale can form kidney stones. If you are acne prone, instead, you need to be very careful about what kind of water you put on your face – otherwise, limescale, because of its PH, can cause more irritation to flare up (no need to wonder why many French beauty gurus only use mineral or thermal water to rinse their face, and it does work!). With a steam cleaner, you can be sure to be able to remove any kind of grime that accumulates about your house’s taps. Then, just wipe them with a simple cloth.

7. Clean Your Windows

There have been many people who tried to invent the perfect cleaning windows tool – from the simplest cloths, to elaborate magnetic appliances. What if I told you it is possible with your steam cleaner? Take advantage of it and reach the entire window surface which, if you are not that tall, can immensely help you – using a stair to reach the upper window can be dangerous, especially if you are home alone and can’t ask anyone for help.

Babies play around a lot, and that means their toys have to be carefully washed, in order for them not to pick up any dangerous bacteria.

Here comes your steam cleaner to help you – gather all the toys in one place and the job is done.

It will result in a perfect job – a shiny, non-greasy, but most importantly, never damaged kitchen.
