  1. Sewing
    My Shark steam iron (only 4 years old and not much used) won't heat anymore. :grrr: I used to have another older steam iron that worked, but unfortunately I gave it away. So I need recommendations for a good steam iron... I like one that produces hot steam for pressing seams when sewing.

  4. Question and Answer
    So I am looking to buy a steam cleaner for our home. We were fortunate enough to get a living room set for free (BF was working on a hotel job where they were replacing furniture), it is in great shape, but a bit dingy. Also with 2 dogs and a cat who are pretty sure they own this house, I really...
  5. Question and Answer
    And are they okay for hardwood? I don't know a specific model, but they are usually about $100 and have pads at the bottom that wipe the floor while spraying steam at it. Spraying hot water at wood seems counter-intuitive to me, but the people in the commercials seem to be doing it. I'm...

  11. Question and Answer
    I have been eyeing the Steam Buddy at CVS. The main reason is that I have a bunch of really nice sweater sets that get wrinkled really easily when folded. Would hang them but don't want to stretch them out. Has anyone bought this? It says it gets rid of smells. Is this true? Thought it...

    Ok ladies, Last week I found an old Gift Card I had to KMart and decided to purchase the Shark Steam Mop. All my floors are basically WHITE vinyl and trying to clean them is terrible. So, I decided to give this a try. I still have the Box, and receipt, so if I'm not fully satisfied with it...

    I need to clean my carpets. Plus a lot of other things, mold on the ceiling of the shower etc. I was wondering if using a steamer and a shop vac would do a good job.

  16. Laundry
    Q&A: Do steam laundry appliances work better than regular washers and dryers? I've seen a growing number of steam-equipped washers and dryers in stores. How well do these machines work?

    Does any one have a good shampoo for a bissell steam cleaner? Iv'e been using either the shampoo they sell, or simple green, then final rinsing with vinegar water. My carpet is almost white so its real hard to keep clean. Plus I have the 4 cats inside, which of course have to get sick on it...

    Okay, what is the trick? I have tried steam blocking several scarves with different methods, and I always end up with a scarf that still curls up afterward! I have tried: 1) placing the scarf on a flat surface (ironing board) under a wet towel, then running an iron over the wet towel; scarf...

    It was explained to me that the best place for those cast iron radiators is under a window. I always wondered why ours were on the outer walls - why not inner walls? The reason is that the hot air created by the cast iron radiators rises, hits the cold window and this creates a convection...
