Did the unit continue to work fine? Yes. Should I have left it plugged in? Well no, but should the unit have melted even though it was "off" just because it was plugged in? I think not. So, if you're going to use it, make sure you unplug it as soon as your done. Thankfully Amazon was gracious about the return (had only had it a few days).
There are some pros and cons with the cleaner I should mention:
lots of useful tools
adjustable steam output
quick warm-up time
loud water pump (as indicated by other reviews)
poor quality switches / reservoir cap
unit gets hot after extended use
As you can see, the pros outnumber the cons. The water pump is loud, but that is the trade off for having the amazing variable steam output switch... Speaking of that switch, you have to play with it to get the steam to come out "full power" as the quality of that particular switch is sub-par.Read more ›
Now to the amazement of my family and friends, I use my steamer exclusively (and white vinegar)--no, you can't put white vinegar in the machine. You only need water, but I use bottled water because of the level of minerals in our water. I use my machine everywhere: bathrooms, kitchen, wood crevices, floors, vents, window blinds, mirrors, garbage cans, white residue on rocks (!), appliances, especially appliances. I also use it for my car, especially to clean the wheels. Most of the time, I take it to the car wash, but it is never quite right so I use my machine to finish the job. I call it completed staff work.
Everybody is so grateful because when they visit me they are not bombarded with the odors of cleaning chemicals. I was wondering what made me sneeze so much. And I don't have to wear those special gloves.
I hope this is helpful. I guess I have gone Green without knowing it. Cheers!
Grout around a fireplace -- didn't turn it white, but it did clean it up a bit. Soot that wasn't visible to the eye ended up on my cleaning cloth.
Tennis shoes -- Just meh. I don't think steam is enough to get out stains in this case. It needed some kind of cleaner to help it along.
Oven -- I don't have a self-cleaning oven. The gunk that was baked on and flush with the surface didn't come off as easily as I had hoped. Here's an occasion where you might need some cleaner in addition to the steam. I used the little round scrub brush tool as the nozzle, and that still didn't remedy some really baked on crud. That's going to require some chemicals and/or a putty knife at a low angle with lots of liquid. I kept cleaning one section that I thought was dirty, only to wipe and find sparkly flecks on the cloth. Apparently, the coating on the oven was peeling, and the steam and scrubbing made it worse. Not the fault of the steamer.
Fiberglass shower/tub -- This was admittedly way overdue for a cleaning. I tried steam alone at first and found that the soap scum melted a bit but I could still see and feel it. So then I sprayed some Seventh Generation tub cleaner and let things sit for about 10 minutes. I took a regular scrub brush in one hand, the steamer in the other, and got a little rhythm going of steaming and scrubbing along right after the steam. That was a lot of work, but it came clean easier than just scrubbing + cleaner.Read more ›

This unit does put out a good amount of steam but it clogs frequently which means you have to take it apart and in doing so you will destroy some of the O-rings and gaskets. Read morePublished on May 21, 2014 by Boyd Goodhart
