What our reviewer said….
“Although this steamer comes with lots of attachments, I found it very easy to put together. The steam mop was great, it’s very light and heats up quickly. Due to its triangular shape I was able to get into all corners very easily. It left my laminate floors clean and streak free.
I then used the duster attachment, which I didn’t find as impressive. It seemed to just push dust around rather than collect it, so I ended up having to use a duster cloth to finish the job.
I then tried the clothes steamer, which worked very well and got some extremely stubborn creases out of my curtains. However, I did find that it leaked a lot of water and my curtains needed all night to dry completely.
The window cleaner and brush attachments were both great for removing most stains, although they couldn’t quite cope with particularly stubborn stains.
Overall, I thought this product was good value for money, but could be improved by the inclusion of extra mop and duster pads. The pads can be quite dirty after just one use so to save washing them constantly it would have been useful to have a few extra."
