10 situations in which a clothes steamer saves the day

Steaming is a simple, time-saving and gentler alternative to ironing. It is also much more sustainable. If you steam your clothes instead of washing them, they will last much longer. A steam device refreshes garments, reduces wrinkles, odors and kills bacteria. Dry cleaning is also more environmentally friendly, because you don't have to wash the clothes that just need to be freshened up.

10 clothes steamer tips

The hot steam (97-99°C) from a steam device reduces odors and eliminates virtually all bacteria. Make it a habit to steam clean all your household textiles once in a while! Did you also know that a steam device also works as a steam cleaner? Use it to kill bacteria when cleaning the stove, kitchen or bathroom tiles, door handles, and so on. Below you can read 8 useful tips where a steamer comes in handy!

1. Carpets

Save money and the environment by dry cleaning your carpets instead of taking them to the dry cleaners. If necessary, use an extension cord and run the clothes steamer over the carpet. To further freshen the carpet, hold the clothes steamer slightly away from the carpet. This allows extra steam to escape from the device and penetrate the carpet. All bacteria are thus killed. The textile fibers of the carpet swell, making it easier to clean and remove stains.

2. Curtains

Use an extension cord and climb a ladder to iron and clean curtains without even taking them down. Super handy! Press the clothes steamer against the fabric to iron out all wrinkles with the steamer. Want to freshen up more? Then hold the steamer a little bit away from the fabric.

3. Fabric sofas and armchairs

How often have you been the couch? This is not really a popular job for many. Fortunately, the clothes steamer easily steams the couch fresh. Creases in the sofa are also easily removed with a clothes steamer, making the sofa immediately look sleek, fresh and well-groomed again. Please note: do not steam leather or suede. All other fabrics can be steamed.

4. Blankets and bedding

Ironing and then making up bed linen is a tedious job. If you have ironed your sheets and covers tightly, they will wrinkle again when you make your bed. Cover the bed first, then use a steamer to remove any wrinkles from bedding. You may not think it is so important for yourself to sleep in a perfectly ironed, made bed, but when you have guests over, a dry-cleaned bed looks incredibly chic. The hot steam also kills the bacteria in bedding and freshens your bed. Make sure you let it dry thoroughly before crawling under it.

5. Pillows

Freshening up your pillows is a must. A lot of bacteria collect in your pillow after a few nights of sleep. These are easy to eliminate with the clothes steamer. Make sure the cushions dry thoroughly.

6. Ovens and stoves

When was the last time you cleaned the outside of a stove from bacteria? Cleaning the exterior of ovens and stoves is often a forgotten task, but it is important for a hygienic kitchen. With a steamer you can easily kill bacteria and remove dirt from the outside of your stove. Take a moment to thoroughly clean your stove and enjoy a clean and bacteria-free cooking environment.

7. Tiles

Clean your kitchen or bathroom tiles thoroughly. Start by removing excess dirt and then use the steamer to deep clean the areas needed. The hot steam will effectively remove stubborn dirt, grease and bacteria, leaving your tiles looking radiant again. With a steam cleaner you can easily and efficiently maintain a hygienic environment in your kitchen or bathroom.

8. Mattresses

Some parts of a bed, such as mattresses, are very difficult to clean. Fortunately, you can use a steam cleaner to kill bacteria and keep your mattress fresh. The hot steam penetrates deep into the fabric and kills bacteria and mites that can accumulate in your mattress. By regularly steaming your mattress, you can ensure a hygienic sleeping environment and extend the life of your mattress. Take the time to thoroughly clean your mattress with a steam cleaner and enjoy a clean and healthy sleeping surface.

9. Stuffed animals

Disinfect your children's favorite cuddly toys and freshen up the plush animal easily and quickly with a steam cleaner. Stuffed animals can collect dust and bacteria over time, making them smell less fresh and possibly become a source of germs. With a steam cleaner you can safely and effectively kill bacteria and remove odors, while maintaining the soft plushness. Freshen up your children's stuffed animals with the power of steam and ensure a clean and healthy play environment.

10. Removing (old) stickers

In addition to household chores, a steam tool can come in handy for removing old stickers, cleaning hard-to-reach corners and much more, making it a versatile tool that can save the day in a variety of situations.

These are just a few examples of how a steam appliance can be used. Do not steam wood and leather, but use your imagination. Lots of steaming fun!

Last but not least: take better care of the clothes you already have!

Use the right care products to care for your clothes. Do not unnecessarily put your clothes in the washing machine, but for example run a clothes steamer over them to freshen up the fabric, or hang the fabric outside to air out. Does a substance pill? Or is there lint on it? Use a fabric brush or lint remover to breathe new life into the fabric. It certainly doesn't have to be thrown away. Use gentle detergent, without chemicals and harmful substances for your garment. This way the fabric lasts much longer!
