Polti Vaporetto 950
Advantages: works well
I recently was a manager at a charity shop and when the clothes ae donated to the shop they have to be looked through and the best are kept and steam cleaned before going onto the clothes racks to be priced and sold.
it is the job of the manager or volunteers to do the steam cleaning and you need a really good steam cleaner to get the clothes in a nice looking condition togo on the shop floor.
This Polti 950 Vaporetto 195880 is a handy size steam cleaner asit is light weight and portable, some shops have huge dome cleaners which are very weighty and take longer to heat up and produce steam to clean with.
This little cute red one is on wheels and can be dragged around easily. To use it you have to fill the water compartmnet up to the right level, switch it on and wait for the steam to come out of the end. Its that simple to use.
There is a safety cap on the steamer which means it cannot be undone to let the hot water outonce the steam pressure has built up in the steamer, which is good for if you have children as they cannot hurt themselves, however the steam is dangerous if you let it get near your skin it will brun and burn badly. Its easy to miss the material of curtains that are being steamed as they are hung up, be careful not to get fingers at the edges of curtains whiclstthe steamer is in your other hand.
it is always best to stand by someone and show them how this works if they haven't used a steamer before.
The steamer cost the shop £108.00 which it soon made back with the donations of kind people. it is a 2000W machine and therefore does use a fair bit of electric, but its not the kind of appliance that's used all the time as steaming doesn't take to long.
its ideal for all materials, and is especially good for curtains, jackets, blankets and bedding as it kills dust mites and other allergens.
the steam ready light will come on when its ready to use and it will make a sound when its out of water so you don't have to worry about it running out without you noticing.
It comes with a funnel for the water tank and two brushes, you can buy other assesories for it like disinfectants to go in the water tank but its perfectly good on its own steam.
You can buy it only from Amazon or other online shops like www.go-electrical.co.uk it is around £108 but on Amazon you will pay a little bit more and buying online you also have to pay for the postage of your item seperately to the price its offered at.
If your looking for a steam cleaner then its a good all rounder, it does the job well and the clothes come out crease free and smelling nice.
Summary: does the job
