Hoover twin tank handheld steamer WH20100


Step 1 - How It Works
A garment steamer is a hand held device. Water is placed in the tank and is heated until it becomes steam. The steam is directed at pressure through a nozzle to the garment. The heat relaxes all the fibers in the garment, which eliminates the wrinkles in the clothing.
Step 2 - Preparation
Put cold water in the water tank of the handheld steamer. Check to ensure all the parts are properly connected. Turn the device on and allow the garment steamer to heat until steam forms.
Step 3 - Shirts
Put the shirt on a hanger. You should button the collar and a couple of buttons below it. To make life as easy as possible, hang the shirt from something that will easily let you reach all around it-a shower curtain rail is ideal for this.
Steam from the bottom of the shirt, moving upward. Direct the steam at the material and pay particular attention to the collar area. After you've finished, let the shirt hang for a minute before putting it in the closet. This will allow the dampness to air out.
Step 4 - Dresses And Skirts
Dresses and skirts can be made of many different types of fabric, with different printing, so special care is needed with these. Where the material itself is delicate, such as silk or velvet, make sure that the nozzle of the garment steamer never directly touches the material.
Where clothing has been embroidered or screen-printed you should turn the item of clothing inside out and steam that side instead. That way there's no risk of damaging the print or embroidery, and the wrinkles will still disappear. When you've finished, give the clothing a minute for the dampness to fade, turn right side out and hang in the closet.
Step 5 - Heavier Material
Where you're steaming a heavier material, you might well find that it needs several steamings before all the wrinkles go. As an alternative to this you can also use the garment steamer on the inside and the outside of the piece of clothing.
Step 6 - Water Level
Check the water level in the tank after each item of clothing. This way there will be no danger of the water running low. If you let the water run out you can end up damaging the garment steamer. On the other hand, if you put too much water in the tank, all that will come out will be water, not steam.
Step 7 - Other Uses
A garment steamer is surprisingly versatile. You can also use it on drapes, upholstery and even wigs. Many people pack travel size garment steamers when they go on trips.

Forgot what kind of water to use - distilled or other wise can not find manual, can I get one - Model GS7RW Thanks, Susan


hi.

i am assuming it is the GS7RW garment steamer and not actually a vacuum cleaner.

any electrical item with a heating element should be used with distilled or de-ionised water.
if you live in a "hard water" area where the water contains dissolved calcuim salts, these will cause scaling and furring up of the heater element. easiest way to tell is to look inside your kettle. if there are white deposits on the base or heating element, your steamer will get the same deposits and work less effectively.

another option is to use the scented ironing waters available from many supermarkets for use in steam irons. these will not harm your steamer, and will also make your clothes smell nice as they come in a range of scents.

this link does have some instructions that may help.

The steam in my handheld steam shot does not seem to be very hot therefore the surfaces, specially cloth ones do not get clean properly. What should I do?


If it steams it is as hot as it is going to get. Water steams at 212 degrees F at sea level so the only way to increase that heat is to pressurize that steam to a higher density than sea level which is about 32lbs per sq. in. Your steamer has no method to pressurize that steam to increase that heat. Conversely, as the pressure decreases, say you live in Denver which is about 5000 ft above sea level, then that steam will only get to about 203 degrees F. (See: http://whatscookingamerica.net/boilpoint.htm) Steam Cleaning at best is a poor method of cleaning as all it does is saturate the clothing item with water, which in theory loosens dirt, but no way is provided to remove the dirt. A rug shampooer has a vacuum that sucks the dirt away from the carpet along with the suds for a better cleaning method. In my opinion a hand steamer will only remove wrinkles at best.

I am trying to find somewhere to get spare parts (in particular the small detail brush) for this two-year-old steam cleaner. It appears that Domotec no longer have a UK distributor but I think they do...


Domotec does not exists anymore , however you can buy from www.espares.co.uk : Vax Steamer Nylon Brush (ES956244) which is similar to the one supplied with Domotec steam cleaner.

My steam cleaner will not get hot enough any more. It is only a year old.


probable scale problem in boiler. Try using coffee machine de-scaler add to steamer heat and rinse. De-scaler available from most stores selling automatic coffee machines. Or it may be an element failure.
