Steam Cleaners

Post by sunflowergs on Tue 23 Apr 2013, 8:21 am

In Lidl yesterday i saw Hand Held Steamer cleaners with one or two attachments for £16/£17. I saw a thread somewhere that recommended these for cleaning PVC. I bought some plastic cleaner in a sqeezey bottle for 1.99, i'll let you know how effective it is.

I didn't buy a steam cleaner,just solvent and a pack of dish cloths. The solvent has done a good enough job for me. To be honest cleaning and shining is not my idea fun,so 4 hours spent rubbing solvent soaked rags over the dandy is about my limit annually.

Ah I thought the whole idea was that you didn't spend hours with a steam cleaner. Was hoping for someone else's review other than Pete's. After all everything works like magic for him! (Oh dear oh dear oh dear. I couldn't resist it)

Steam Cleaner works very well with loose dirt, mud ect:-
ground in dirt, a mixture of steam cleaner, to try and loosen the dirt, then cif, then steam cleaner worked well on my cover.
We had the dandy awning up last week, and that was a fair bit dirtier than the dandy.
So had a couple of hours cleaning it.
This time i tried using a mixture of cif with microfiber cloths on the PVC which worked better than just ordinary rags.
And on the windows of the awning i used a microfiber cloth and just plain water, and they came up nice and shiny (there were water marks on the windows before that i couldn't get rid of now gone).
Also Helen's suggestion of using silky caravan cleaner on the PVC afterwards gives a nice finish. (But not on the windows)
Nothings perfect, just a matter of trying different methods until you find what works best for you.
And my wife says i am very trying. piff,paff,poof. Pete  Smile
