When using your Steam Cleaner with Soap Dispenser, basic safety
precautions should always be observed, including the following:
1.
Read all instructions before using your
steam cleaner.
2. Use the system only for its intended use.
3. To protect against a risk of electric shock,
do not immerse any part of the system in
water or other liquids.
4. Never yank cord to disconnect from
outlet; instead, grasp plug and pull to
disconnect.
5. Do not allow cord to touch hot surfaces.
Let the system cool completely before
putting away or opening water tank
(removing the safety cap). Wrap cord
loosely around system when storing.
6. Always disconnect system from electrical
outlet when filling with water or emptying
and when not in use. Always turn the
safety cap slowly when opening the water
tank . This will allow any remaining steam
to escape gradually.
7. Do not operate the system with a damaged
cord or plug, or if the appliance or any other
part of the system has been dropped or
damaged. To avoid the risk of electric
shock, do not disassemble or attempt to
repair the steam cleaner. Return the

Incorrect re-assembly or repair can cause a
risk of electrical shock or injury to persons
when the steam cleaner is used.
8. Close supervision is necessary for any
appliance being used by or near children.
Do not leave the system unattended while
connected to electrical outlet or when hot.
9. Burns can occur from touching hot metal
parts, hot water or steam. Use caution
when draining unit after use as there may
be hot water in the unit. Never direct steam
at any person. The steam is very hot and
can cause burns.
10. Do not operate in the presence of
explosive and/or flammable fumes.
11. This appliance is intended only for
household use. Follow all user instructions
in this manual.
12. Never use any chemicals or substance
other than tap water in the machine. Use of
chemicals may damage the machine. Use

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
1. To avoid circuit overload, do not operate another appliance on the same socket
(circuit) as the steam cleaner.
2. If an extension cord is absolutely necessary, an extension cord rated a minimum
of 15 ampere, 14 gage cord should be used. Cords rated for less amperage may
overheat. Care should be taken to arrange cord so that it cannot be pulled or
tripped over.
3. Do not leave unattended when the system is connected to a power
supply/electrical outlet.
WARNING: This appliance is equipped with a grounded,
type 3-wire cord (3-prong plug). This plug will only fit into an
electrical outlet made for a 3-prong plug. This is a safety
feature. If the plug should fail to fit the outlet, contact an
electrician to replace the outlet. Do not attempt to defeat the
safety purpose of the grounding pin, part of the 3-prong plug.
CAUTION: Always drain condensed water from hose
before use or if unit has been left idle for a period of time. To
drain hose, direct nozzle into an appropriate container or sink
and depress hand grip steam trigger. Once hose has been
drained, normal use may be resumed. Never direct nozzle
towards people, animals or plants.
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS FOR SOAP SOLUTION
CAUTION: Eye Irritant. Should some of the cleaner be
rubbed or splashed into the eyes, wash out thoroughly with
water. If irritation continues, contact a physician. In case of
ingestion, contact a physician.
Ingredients: Anionic and non-ionic surfactant system
TIPS ON HOW TO USE YOUR SYSTEM
Artificial Plants
Use the concentrator without a brush
attached to blow off the dust and dirt.
Clothing
A vapor cleaning system is excellent for
removing wrinkles from fabrics. Simply
“vaporize” the surface from a distance
(12”-18”) The dry vapor removes
wrinkles without leaving the fabric wet
like ordinary fabric steamers do. Always
test a hidden section of the clothing for
color fastness.
Nicotine and Tar
Nicotine and tar dissolves at high
temperatures and becomes a light
yellow oil that has the consistency of
sewing machine oil. When the
nicotine/tar film is touched by a hot terry
cloth towel clipped over the floor brush,
it immediately dissolves and flows into
the towel. You can remove it from flat
surfaces as fast as you can move the
brush over the surface.
Removing Wax, Tar, Etc.
Many stains are only stuck on the
surface of materials and can be easily
and quickly removed by “blowing”
excess material away from the surface
from the side. This is accomplished by
using the concentrator. Hold the terry
cloth towel to the side to catch the loose
residue as it is blown by the
concentrator. Note: Always vacuum
any loose residue off the surface before
you apply vapor to it.
Hints
ALWAYS FINISH CLEANING BY WIPING
DOWN THE CLEANED SURFACE WITH A
TOWEL
The steam cleaner has many uses that
have not been mentioned. This was
meant only to give you a general idea of
what can be achieved with the unit.
However, the ways in which to use the
attachments and brushes are in most
cases universal. It is most helpful to
always have a terry cloth towel or paper
towel ready to use for removal of
moisture and residue. 100% white
cotton towels work best.
You can clean the brushes with your
steam cleaner. To clean the triangle
brush, hold at one end and use the
concentrator to simply blow off dirt into
the garbage can. When cleaning the
bristle brushes, use a pair of pliers to
hold and blow dirt as above or place in
the basket of your dishwasher.
Note: Wipe with a towel immediately
before the cleaned area dries. When
cleaning the oven, use the nylon bristle
brush to clean around the elements and
drip trays. Use the nylon bristle brush
for cracks, crevices, and hard to reach
areas.
Refrigerator - Use the concentrator to
blow away dirt in the ice machine and
on door seals. The vapor will not dry
out or crack the seals as chemicals
often do. Can openers and other
kitchen equipment can be easily
cleaned with the detail brush to get into
all the nooks and crannies. Mold stains
around door gaskets can be removed
with the detail brush.
To clean microwaves or other small
appliances use the detail brush for
small areas.
Note: When cleaning small electrical
appliances always unplug them from
outlet before cleaning. DO NOT direct
steam into any openings of the
appliances.
To clean counter tops, use the triangle
brush with a terry cloth towel attached.
For heavily soiled areas, use the brush
without the terry cloth towel first in order
to loosen the debris, then follow with a
terry cloth towel attached to finish.
WARNING: Use only the soap solution that has been
supplied with your steam cleaner. Use of any other detergent
soaps may damage the pump mechanism and the feed
system of the dispenser. Regular soap should never be used
with this dispenser.
WARNING: NEVER ADD THE SOAP SOLUTION TO THE
BOILER OF THE STEAM CLEANER.

TIPS ON HOW TO USE YOUR SYSTEM
Note: Soap scum sometimes will develop
a hard surface from waterborne minerals.
If this is the case, use the floor brush with
no towel first to break up this surface - or
spray or wipe first with lemon, vinegar or
seltzer soda water to soften the minerals.
Moving too slowly can dry out the soap
scum and cause it to granulate on the
surface. The surface will have a gritty
feel. If this happens, apply vapor to the
surface with the open brush again and
re-clean.
Bathroom Areas
To clean the bathtub or shower area, use
the nylon bristle brush for grout, shower
door tracks, hard to get areas and heavily
soiled areas. The dual edge window/tile
squeegee will be the most efficient way
to clean the rest of the area. Allow plenty
of time for the heat to penetrate the
surface. This is especially helpful in the
shower area if there is tile or grout. Wipe
with towel.
Removal of soap scum on tile, grout, and
shower doors is also easier with the
steam cleaner.
Garden Furniture
Use any of the brushes depending on the
surface area. Work quickly when
cleaning resin outdoor furniture. Finish by
wiping with a towel
Blinds
Use the nylon bristle brush to clean
blinds. Move the brush over the surface,
allowing enough time for the vapor to
penetrate. Work quickly on PVC blinds.
Test for color fastness on fabric blinds
before using. Finish by wiping with a
towel.
Automotive
For detailing the wheels, use the
concentrator and the brass bristle brush.
Exterior windows are cleaned best by
applying the vapor with the concentrator
and following with a paper towel.
To clean bicycles, use the nylon bristle
brush.
To clean equipment, use the bristle
brush, depending on the surface area.
Finish by wiping down with a towel.
Upholstery
Use the triangle brush attached directly
to the hand grip with a clean white terry
cloth towel. Use fast, light strokes, avoid
getting the fabric wet. Be patient with
stubborn spots; work on a spot gently for
no more than a minute at a time, then
wait five minutes for the area to dry and
repeat. Use circular movements or backand-forth and side-to-side movements to
get all sides of surface fibers then blot
with a towel. Finish with a brushing in
one direction that will give the fabric a
uniform appearance.
CAUTION: Always determine
the color-fastness of any fabricespecially with reds or blues - by taking a
clean, moist, warm towel and gently
rubbing a small area as far down on the
back or other out of the way place on the
furniture as possible. If color comes off
on the towel, you may need to have the
piece dry cleaned.
Window, Glass Surfaces and Mirrors
Use the dual edge glass and tile
squeegee. Work with the vapor jet on
using the top to bottom movements. Use
the squeegee with the vapor off to clear
the water from the glass. To do this
without leaving streaks, use lateral
movements from the top to the bottom of
the surface.
CAUTION: When cleaning
windows, always avoid any sudden
changes in temperature to prevent glass
breakage or cracks.
Fiberglass or Stainless Steel Surfaces
Use the triangle brush or nylon bristle
brush. Slowly move the brush over the
surface to be cleaned. The vapor will
emulsify the dirt and grease on the
surface. Follow behind with a terry cloth
towel over the brush to remove excess
moisture and residue.
Tip: An old idea for polishing stainless
steel is to wipe it down with seltzer soda
water after it is cleaned.
Soap Scum
Soap scum dissolves almost immediately
under a combination of heat and
moisture. Rinse the surface with a small
amount of water afterwards or go back
over it once more with a clean terry cloth
towel.

TIPS ON HOW TO USE YOUR SYSTEM
Note: When storing your unit, always
drain any residual water in the boiler
and do not tighten the safety filler cap
onto the unit. Always leave the safety
filler cap loose on the unit when not in
use.
Water
• Use tap water for all your cleaning
needs.
• However, if you live in an area with
hard water, use de-mineralized /
distilled water when steaming light
colored fabrics to eliminate the
possibility of hard water stains.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT add cleaning
solutions, scented perfumes, oils or any
other chemicals to the water used in
this appliance. Use tap water or
distilled/purified water if the tap
water in your area is very hard.
WARNING: A towel wrapped
around the brush can become hot
enough to burn. Make sure that you let
the towel cool off for 5 minutes before
touching it.
Using Towels
• For best results use 100% cotton
white terry cloth towels.
• Use correct size of towel to allow you
to wrap the towel around the brushes
and clip it under the spring loaded
cloth holder.
• The purpose of using a towel is to
absorb moisture and dirt being
removed. Always use dry towels.
A wet towel will smear the dirt.
• Wash towels with strong detergent
and bleach.
• Using scented fabric softener while
washing the towels will cause the
scent to be released into the air
when using the towels with your
steam system.
Efficient Work
• For vertical surfaces, wipe with a
towel from the top down, in this
way the dirty water will not soil
surfaces already cleaned.
• Avoid changing brushes back and
forth while cleaning.
• Start with the smallest brush to
clean tight spots and corners first.
• Use a towel to wipe dirt as soon as
possible, otherwise it will dry and readhere to the surface.
Wood, Vinyl and Marble Floors
Use the steam pocket. Move the steam
pocket across the floor as if you are
mopping. When one side of the towel is
soiled, turn the steam pocket frame and
use the other side. If you are working
on a very dirty area, you can move the
steam pocket over the area slowly,
several times. If it is a wood floor, move
fast to avoid heat or moisture buildup in
the wood.
To Clean Waxed Floors: Use the
steam pocket with quick strokes. This
will cause the dirt to be removed but not
the wax.
Vinyl Floors: Do not allow heat to
buildup in any kind of vinyl, since it can
soften it enough to affect its texture.
Work fast on vinyl.
Tile Floors: Use the concentrator with
the nylon bristle brush attached to an
extension. Have the steam pocket
ready as well. Clean the grout between
the tiles with the nylon bristle brush.
Remove the nylon bristle brush and
attach the steam pocket, move the
steam pocket across the floor to clean
the tile and remove excess moisture and
residue. Do not let the area dry before
you wipe with a towel.
Spot Cleaning (Carpets)
Use the concentrator with or without the
bristle brush. Move slowly over the soiled
area, allowing the steam to penetrate.
Agitate with bristle brush or clean towel.
Dab the spot with the towel (do not rub).
Repeat as necessary to remove stain.
Vacuum only after the carpet has
completely dried.
Always test color fastness of carpet in an
inconspicuous area before cleaning.
If your steam cleaner fails to remove
stubborn stains a commercially available
carpet shampoo may be required. Do
NOT use the soap supplied for spot
cleaning carpets.
Do NOT add cleaning solutions, scented
perfumes, oils or any other chemicals to
the water used in this appliance as this
may damage the unit or make it unsafe
for use.

TIPS ON HOW TO USE YOUR SYSTEM
Care and Maintenance
If you consistently use demineralized or
distilled water, cleaning the tank is
unnecessary.
Rinsing Out the Steam Cleaner
Normally, a periodic rinse of your steam
cleaner will free it from deposits. This is
recommended every 10-15 tankfulls, to
free up any scale deposits from the tank.
Fill the boiler with 20 oz. of water and
shake the cleaner vigorously. Tilt the
cleaner upside down to empty the boiler of
water and any scale deposits.
Descaling Your Steam Cleaner
If the tap water in you area contains a high
level of calcium deposits and you have
been using tap water to do your steam
cleaning, you should descale your unit
after 10-15 tankfulls.
To Descale the Steam Cleaner
Step 1:
Step 2:
Step 3:
Unplug the steam cleaner from
the power source before you
descale the boiler. Allow to cool.
Fill the boiler with 1 part
vinegar and 5 parts water and
leave overnight or for a period
of approximately 8 hours. Do
not screw the safety/filler cap
onto the steam cleaner while
you are descaling the boiler.
Do not use the steam cleaner
while descaling solution is
inside the boiler.
After the period of soaking, turn
the steam cleaner upside down
to empty solution from the
boiler. Due to the fact that a
small amount of solution will be
left in the boiler, it is necessary
to rinse the boiler out with clean
water 2 or 3 times. Your steam
cleaner is now ready for use.
Water
• Use tap water for all your cleaning
needs.
• However, if you live in an area with
hard water, use de-mineralized /
distilled water when steaming light
colored fabrics to eliminate the
possibility of hard water stains.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT add cleaning
solutions, scented perfumes, oils or any
other chemicals to the water used in
this appliance. Use tap water or
distilled/purified water if the tap
water in your area is very hard.
Efficient Work
• For vertical surfaces, wipe with a
towel from the top down, in this
way the dirty water will not soil
surfaces already cleaned.
• Avoid changing brushes back and
forth while cleaning.
• Start with the smallest brush to
clean tight spots and corners first.
• Use a towel to wipe dirt as soon as
possible, otherwise it will dry and
re-adhere to the surface.

temperatures and moisture such as
ceramic tiles or counter tops. This
should not be used on materials such
as carpet or wood floors because the
high temperature and steam with soap
can damage the surface.
VERY IMPORTANT: Use only the soap
solution that has been supplied with
your steam cleaner. Use of any other
type of detergent soaps may damage the
pump mechanism and the feed system of
the injector. Regular detergent soaps
SHOULD NEVER BE USED with this
injector.

Due to the unique cleaning ability of this
cloth, proper care of your microfiber towel is
required to ensure long life and continued
cleaning ability.
• The first thing you should do when you get
a new microfiber towel is to wash and dry
it. During the manufacturing process the
fabric has a tendency to become flat as it
picks up contaminants from the air and
machinery. There will also be a number of
loose threads that, while they cause no
harm, can be annoying the first time you
use the towel.
• To clean the towel, simply wash it in your
washing machine using the warm water
setting.
• Always wash your towels separately from
other fabrics. They have a tendency to
pick up lint and other particles from other
fabrics and the next time you use your
towel, this lint will transfer to the surface
being cleaned.
• ONLY USE LIQUID DETERGENTS, never
use dry detergents as many times the
granules do not fully dissolve and become
trapped in the towel. This can scratch the
surface that you are cleaning.
• NEVER USE BLEACH OR FABRIC
SOFTENERS! Bleach will damage the
microfiber fabric and fabric softeners
deposit a coating on the microfiber fabric
what will not allow the cloth to clean
efficiently.
• Air dry the towel. Do not put in a clothes
dryer as high heat will cause the towel to
shrink and the microfibers to break down.
• If you wash your towel on a regular basis
and don’t let them get too dirty, they will
last much longer. As with any fabric, dirt
particles, grease and other contaminants
can cause the fibers to break down,
therefore regular cleaning will help
preserve your microfiber towels.
• As you use the microfiber towel, you will
notice that sometimes a thread will loosen
or pull out. This is normal and you should
NEVER PULL AT THE LOOSE THREAD!
Pulling the thread can cause the weave to
come undone. Instead, simply trim the
thread with a pair of sharp scissors.

triangular brush and turn 180° to lock
in place. (Fig. 7 )
Fig. 7
Step 1: The triangle brush w/angle
adaptor connects either
directly to the handgrip or
may be used with the
extension tubes. To connect
the extension tubes to the
hand grip attach the
extension tubes one onto the
other and then onto the hand
grip. (Fig. 8 & 9) To

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Attaching a Towel to the
Triangular Brush
To use: Connect the tile
squeegee to the hand
grip or use with
extension tube for
hard to reach surfaces.
Apply steam abundantly, rub with the
soft spongy edge, then remove excess
water and dirt with the glass wiping
edge.
100% white terry cloth towel can be fitted
on this brush, so as to absorb the dirt and
protect delicate surfaces.
Important: Please note that bristles
may break through thin towels. We
recommend that two (2) towels, laid one
on top of the other be used. This will
ensure that the brush bristles do not
break through and that the towels will be
sufficiently absorbent and retain as much
dirt as possible.
Very Important: When installing the
towels to the triangular brush, ensure that
the towels do not cover the front and the
back of the brush. (See Fig. 13)
IMPORTANT: When cleaning
windows, always avoid any sudden
changes in temperature to prevent glass
breakage or cracks.

not use the soap injector with the
steam pocket. You can use the
concentrator to apply the soap.
1. Use the steam to moisten and heat
up the stain that you wish to remove.
2. Spray the soap onto the surface with
the stain.
3. Let the soap stay on the stain for 10
to 15 seconds. Then using a brush,
scrubbing pad or sponge, scrub the
stain.
4. Then using the steam, scrub the stain
some more and then wipe it clean
with a towel.
5. For stubborn stains, repeat steps
1 to 4 one more time.
