IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When using your Steam Cleaner, basic safety precautions should always be
observed, including the following:
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or
injury:
• Do not leave the steam cleaner plugged
in when unattended. Unplug the electrical
cord when not in use and before servicing or
refilling water tank.
• Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close
attention is necessary when used by or near
children, pets or plants.
• Use only as described in this manual. Use
only manufacturer’s recommended
accessories.
• Do not pull cord, use cord as a handle, close
a door on cord, or pull cord around sharp
edges or corners. Keep cord away from
heated surfaces.
• Do not use extension cords or outlets with
inadequate current carrying capacity.
• Do turn off all controls as applicable before
unplugging from electrical outlet.
• Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug,
grasp the plug, not the cord.
• Do not handle plug or steam cleaner with wet
hands or operate without shoes.
• Do not put any objects into openings. Do not
use with any opening blocked.
• ALWAYS STORE YOUR APPLIANCE
INDOORS in a cool, dry area.
• Do keep your work area well lit.
• Do Not turn the appliance over or on its
side. Never direct steam from steam
cleaner or iron towards people, animals or
plants.
• Do not immerse the steam cleaner or iron into
water or other liquids. Always unplug the
power cord from the electrical socket when
filling the steam cleaner.
• 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. Use tap water or distilled/purified
water if the tap water in your area is very hard.
• Never use scouring pads, abrasive or
chemical cleaners, or solvents to clean the
exterior or soleplate of your iron. Doing so
will scratch and/or damage the surface.
• Never leave the hot iron resting on the iron
rest for extended periods or time or when
the unit is unattended.
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

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

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
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, use a 14 gage cord rated at a
minimum of 15 amperes. 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.
Temperature Control Guide
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.
WARNING: Your Steam Cleaner is designed to clean hard surfaces
and upholstery that will withstand high heat. Do not use on soft plastics
and cold glass. On surfaces that have been treated with wax or some no
wax floors, the sheen may be removed by the heat and steam action. Do
not use on unsealed wood. This could cause the wood grain to rise. It is
therefore recommended to test an isolated area of the surface to be
cleaned before proceeding.
IMPORTANT:
Do NOT add cleaning solutions, scented perfumes, oils or
any other chemicals to the water used in this appliance.
Use regular water or distilled/purified water if the tap
water in your area is very hard.
•
•
Damp Steam: You can iron any
fabric with damp steam as long as
you turn the temperature control dial
to the “Wool” setting.
Dry Steam: With the iron
temperature at the “Linen” setting,
ironing will be more efficient.

TIPS ON HOW TO USE YOUR STEAM CLEANER
ALWAYS FINISH CLEANING BY WIPING DOWN THE CLEANED SURFACE
WITH A TOWEL
Hints
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. 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.
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 bristle brush to get into
all the nooks and crannies. Mold stains
around door gaskets can be removed
with the bristle brush.
To clean microwaves or other small
appliances use the nylon bristle 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 or onto electrical
connections.
To clean counter tops, use the bristle
brush first in order to loosen the debris,
then wipe with a terry cloth towel to
finish.
NOTE: Wipe with a towel immediately
before the cleaned area dries. When
cleaning the oven, use the bristle brush
to clean around the elements and drip
trays. Use the bristle brush for cracks,
crevices, and hard to reach areas.

WARNING: Only refill the unit
TIPS ON HOW TO USE YOUR STEAM CLEANER
WARNING: This appliance is
under pressure. After every use,
unplug the unit and squeeze the
steam trigger button until all
pressure has been released
before removing safety cap.
Allow unit to cool for fifteen (15)
minutes before refilling.
when boiler is empty and steam
output has ceased. Allow unit to
cool for 15 minutes before
refilling. Extreme care should be
taken when refilling the unit. Use
caution when opening the Safety
Cap as it may become hot during
use and escaping steam can
cause scalding.
Step 1: Squeeze the steam trigger on the
hand grip to vent any residual
steam that is in the boiler. This
ensures that the boiler is out of
water.
Step 2: Unplug the unit and allow to cool
for fifteen (15) minutes. Continue
to fill according to “Operating and
Filling Your Steam Cleaner”
instructions.
IMPORTANT: It is not recommended to
refill your unit if there is still steam coming
out when the steam trigger is pressed.
Using the Variable Steam Feature
Your steam cleaner has a variable steam
feature that allows you to adjust the
steam flow to the job that you are doing.
The variable steam control is located on
the handgrip. To increase the steam
flow, turn the knob counter clockwise and
to decrease, turn it clockwise. (Fig. 7)
Fig. 7
Preparing Your Steam Cleaner for
Storage After Use
Using Your Steam Cleaner with
Steam Pocket
When cleaning tasks are complete it is
recommended that you follow these steps
to keep your steam cleaner in good
working order.
Step 1: Unplug unit and allow to cool for at
least 40 min.
Step 2: After unit has been allowed to cool,
slowly loosen safety filler cap to
remove.
Step 3: To empty the boiler tank, tip the
steam cleaner over a sink, to empty

Fiberglass or Stainless Steel Surfaces
Use the 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.
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 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 bristle brush.
To clean equipment, use the bristle
brush, depending on the surface area.
Finish by wiping down with a towel.
Bathroom Areas
To clean the bathtub or shower area, use
the 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.
To clean sanitary fixtures, use the
concentrator with or without bristle brush.
Use a terry cloth towel or paper towel to
wipe up excess moisture and residue.
To clean the sink and faucets, use bristle
brush then finish by wiping with a towel.
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.
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 steam
pocket, it immediately dissolves and
flows into the steam pocket towel. You
can remove it from flat surfaces as fast
as you can move the steam pocket over
the surface.
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.
Note: Soap scum sometimes will develop
a hard surface from waterborne minerals.
If this is the case, use the bristle brush 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 bristle brush again and
re-clean.
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.
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.

TIPS ON HOW TO USE YOUR STEAM CLEANER
Wood, Vinyl and Marble Floors
Use the Steam Pocket ™ to clean wood,
vinyl and marble floors. 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. One of
the great advantages of using our
Steam Pocket™ is that your floor will dry
faster than if you used a mop or other
floor cleaning device. It is normal that
some moisture may be left behind
depending on how quickly you move the
Steam Pocket™ across the floor and the
relative heat and humidity of the room.
Be sure to move quickly and steadily
over wood, linoleum and vinyl flooring to
avoid damaging the surface and
removing wax.
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 build
up 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 bristle brush. Have the Steam
Pocket™ ready as well. Clean the grout
between the tiles with the bristle brush.
Remove the concentrator and bristle
brush and attach the hose and Steam
Pocket™. Move the Steam Pocket™
across the floor to clean the tile and
remove excess moisture and residue.
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 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.
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 window 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.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
NOTE: If not already assembled, fit the
steam pocket frame with the angle
adapter onto the extension tube.
Step 2. If the angle adapter is not
attached to the steam pocket
frame, attach as follows: Hold
the steam pocket frame in one
hand and the
angle adapter in the
other. Insert the
angle adapter
stem into the
Fig. 10
opening of the
steam pocket
frame as shown in Fig. 10. Note
that the flat on the nozzle must
face toward the side of the

NOTE: When replacing the steam
pocket towel, make sure that it has
been allowed to cool before removing
or attaching a new steam pocket towel.
Care & Maintenance of the Steam
Pocket Towel
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
that 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.

TIPS ON HOW TO USE YOUR STEAM CLEANER
Attaching the Shoulder Strap
Attaching the Accessories to the
Hand Grip
Window Squeegee
Using the detachable shoulder strap
allows for greater freedom of movement
when both hands are needed for
various cleaning tasks. To attach the
shoulder strap to the steam cleaner,
simply snap the shoulder strap hooks
onto the connecting rings on the
unit body. See Figs. 14, 15 & 16.
This attachment is very useful for
cleaning large windows, plastic
material, ceramic, tiled or marble
surfaces.
IMPORTANT: When cleaning
windows, always avoid any sudden
changes in temperature to prevent
glass breakage or cracks.
Connection
Points
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.
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.
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.
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.
Descaling Your Steam Cleaner
Fig. 14
Concentrator
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.
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
Attach the concentrator
to the handgrip or to the
extension tubes.
Fig. 15
Nylon Bristle Brush (x2)
It is best for cleaning grout in-between
the ceramic and marble tiles.
To use: Attach the nylon
bristle brush on to the end
of the concentrator, which
then may be used directly
on the hand grip or with extension
tubes.
Fig. 16
IMPORTANT: When using the
steam cleaner with the shoulder
strap, avoid rocking or tilting the unit
excessively as this may cause water
to enter the hose and be discharged
along with the steam.

Step 1: Unplug the steam cleaner from
the power source before you
descale the boiler. Allow to cool.
Step 2: 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.
Step 3: 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.
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.
