To reduce soap bubbles in a steam cleaner, add about 1/4 cup white vinegar. Use the same amount in the rinse water to remove detergent residue and make carpets stay fresh longer.

We received this tip recently. "Steam for Soap Scum: For easiest removal of soap scum, use a steamer to dissolve it."
Has anyone else used a steamer for cleaning? What cleaning projects are they good for and are their any brands that you would recommend?
I had a DeLonghi for about 5 years and burnt it up about 6 months ago. Absolutely worked the thing to death!!!! I now own a Eureka and love it as much. It does every cleaning job in the house, and the bonus is no chemicals! In just the bath, bathtub, sink and faucets, shower walls and floor, pullman hardware, painted walls (haven't tried the wallpapered ones yet), the lavatory inside and out, the window and frame, then lastly, the floor. SS is absolutely correct, you've never seen a whiter floor! I love it.

Use a little tape to hang a sheet of newspaper to the wall behind a sink to catch splatters when you steam clean small items. This will save having to also wipe up dirt or debris blown off the caps.
