Win the 2-in-1 Steam Cleaner!

29/11/2012 | Posted in Floor Care



Steam cleaners are often falsely associated with having the sole purpose of getting unwanted, stubborn stains out of the carpet.

Whether it’s a clumsy red wine spillage at a party, or an unwanted “gift” from a pet, we clamour to dust the cobwebs off the steam cleaner to avoid a domestic incident. However, steam cleaners are much more versatile than that, and have many everyday uses.

The Morphy Richards 2-in-1 Steam Cleaner is a lightweight, manoeuvrable steam cleaner ideal for all floors. Using the steam cleaner for floors (both hard and carpet), as well as general surfaces and doors is the best way to ensure a spotless finish on a day-to-day basis.

The instantaneous steam boiler also means that steam is produced in 30 seconds flat, and the large 400ml tank means you should spend less time re-filling.

What’s more, the detachable handheld helps you clean those hard-to-reach places with ease, meaning that any time you stretch for those nooks and crannies, you can be confident of a spotless finish. A fast and thorough clean? Who wouldn’t want that!

To see the steam cleaner in action, watch this video of Glynn, our design and innovation manager, exploring its features.

To celebrate the launch of the 2-in-1 Steam Cleaner, we are giving one away to a lucky reader! All you have to do is to share with us your finest cleaning tip by dropping a comment below, and we’ll pick a winner at random on Thursday 6th December.

    I clean my grout with vinegar and baking soda. Mix it to a paste, leave on grout for a few minutes then give it a scrub with a brush. It's really easy and environmentally friendly too. If I win the steam cleaner I will be able to use that to have a sparkling floor. Fingers crossed!!

    Never throw away your odd socks or those very squeezy toothpaste tubes. They just work wonders on silver metals. Cut open the toothpaste tube, place your odd sock over your hand. Using your socked hand lightly rub the toothpaste on your shiny surface. Wow! what a difference to taps, bicycle wheels, teapots etc. Thank you

    clean up as dirt happens that way you get to keep on top of it and it doesn't build up

    I have 2 hairy cats and a 4 year old, so it is a challenge to kep my hallway and kitchen floors clean. To do this, I have to make sure that the floor is dried as soon as possible after I wash it - which generally means following an area that has been washed with some folded kitchen towel on the floor, swept over the wet floor with a broom. This stops the wet floor picking up yet more hairs and dirt, and stays reasonably clean until the next time it is washed (pretty much 2 or 3 days afterwards)

    Cut through dirt and grease by adding lemon juice to your bucket when cleaning. The juice of 1 lemon should do the job.

    To get rid of stubborn stains on stainless steel sinks, soak a cloth in Vinegar and wipe round. Leave for a few minutes and then rinse off.

    My cleaning tip is ; For burned on yuck on your cooker racks, put them in the bath with very hot water and a cup of washing powder and leave to steep for a wee while. The yuck just wipes away.... perhaps a steamer would do the same job or even better???

    As much as I love candles they can sometimes spit and splutter up the wall onto the wallpaper, the best way to remove this is to put a tissue over the wax and gently iron on a warm setting, when it comes through the tissue apply another one until it has all gone........

    Lemon juice is a fantastic aid to cleaning - it cuts through grease when cleaning kitchen surfaces, and floors, add a few drops to the water used to rinse drinking glasses after washing makes them sparkle and it has a clean non-chemical fragrance.

    After hoovering and steaming to lift off stubborn pet hair from carpets, layer it with brown sticky tape and rip them off in one direction, just like waxing legs! Makes a great clean carpet and great for people with allergies too x

    Just what Santa and the Doctor ordered for an arthritic 70+ to get ready for Christmas with my family and to clean up after they've all gone home! As my mother always said, it's lovely to see you but better still when you go home, which I now understand!!

  58. tamalyn roberts says:

    30/11/2012 at 1:46 pm

    a healthier way of cleaning the oven without all those caustic fumes, is to use bicarbonate of soda, mix it to a thick paste and smear all over the inside of the oven. Leave overnight then brace yourself for some serious scrubbing with water and a scourer.

    30/11/2012 at 1:52 pm

    The best way to dust blinds? Close them, then wipe up and down with an old dryer sheet. It'll create an antistatic barrier that helps prevent dust from building up again ;-)

    A good tip ...if you are cleaning the inside of the windows wipe horizontally. When you clean the outside wipe the window vertically. This is extremely handy for checking any streaks which may have been left. Vertical streaks will be on the outside and horizontal streaks will be on the inside!

    To make painted walls look like new wipe them down all over with well wetted 'magic' sponges. No need to use a branded version, they all work the same and you'll get through quite a few but even bad marks usually disappear, and they don't mark the paint - you can even try on wallpaper. Avoids redecoration time and cost and makes them look brilliant. Buy a big block/sheet and then cut to a size which suits your hand and the size of each job as the branded ones are often too small and much more expensive.

    I am aware of lots of different tips for getting stains out of tablecloths, cleaning windows etc. However, as I have three young boys and a rather messy husband, I feel I'm qualified to share my tricks. THREATS! I walk round with a bin bag and any toys that aren't tidied away within 60 seconds end up in the bag for two whole weeks! Works a charm! (Even onthe husband!) Not sure if this is necessarily the kind of anecdote you were looking for but it's changed my life!

    Best way to clean a microwave oven, as well as ridding it of bad smells... 1. Boil some water in a kettle. 2. Fill a (microwavable) cereal bowl with the boiled water. 3. Cut a few (circular) slices of lemon. 4. Put these slices in the boiled water. 5. Squeeze the remainder of the lemon in the boiling water. 6. Place bowl in microwave (on full power) for approximately three minutes (depending on model, as all microwaves actually differ in chosen power settings). 7. Once the microwave cycle has finished, allow one minute to stand before opening. 8. Open the microwave, remove the bowl and give the inside a wipe (contents will be extremely hot!). 9. Brand new microwave! Well, the inside at least...

    looks really easy to use and is ideal for all floors in the home. Shame it is only for floors and does not include a handheld steamer for other cleaning tasks around the home.

    Fill a bag with white vinegar, tie it around the tap so any limescale is in the solution, leave for 30 minutes and it will descale the taps leaving them looking shiny and new!

    T clean the microwave...Pour 2 cups of water into a microwave-safe bowl, and cook on high for 5 minutes. The steam generated will soften any cooked-on food splatters. Then, wipe down the interior with a damp sponge

    this would be great for me, after receiving our wedding present, which was a new bedroom, we decided to change rooms. Our new bedroom looks amazing, but we have found some unsightly stains on our old carpeted floor. This would be great to remove these stains and save us the cost of a new carpet

    My best cleaning tip would be microfibre clothes and Bicarbonate Of Soda. Once youve done your dishes, and whilst you are swilling out the sink give it and the taps a once over with a little bit of bicarb and rinse it off and dry it and it will be gleaming.

    I used to spend a lot of money on floor cleaners but instead now I buy a big 30p bottle of Basics bleach & some & a small dash washing up liquid when I clean the floors. It makes the floors clean & germ free! Obviously a steam mop would be better though LOL!

    Put a slice of lemon and a slice of orange in a jug of water and heat in the microwave for a couple minutes. The natural lemon juices will clean the microwave and the orange will create a sweeter citrus smell.

    This looks great, far better than the one I have where the cleaning cloths never stay on and I have to bend down holding them on to be able to use it at all! Now it lives in a cupboard unloved and a waste of space.

  312. Fran Light says:

    06/12/2012 at 11:58 pm

    To clean the microwave I cut lemons into quarters (once that are past their best and no good for putting in gin & tonics are fine!), place them in a large bowl of cold water, microwave on high for five minutes and then leave to 'rest' for another three minutes. After removing the bowl (carefully, as it's always hot) I simply wipe the interior of the microwave with a damp cloth and any embedded grime wipes clean away. I then leave the microwave door open for a while so the lovely, lemon fragrance can permeate the kitchen :-)
