We all look forward to longer days and warmer weather in the summer – especially all that time you get to spend outdoors. Of course, higher temperatures aren’t always good news when you’re inside. If you have children or pets running in and out of the house all day long, your floors can quickly start gathering grime. Then there’s the bathroom, where humid temperatures can start the spread the mould. It’s tempting to turn to chemical cleaning sprays to stay on top of things. But actually, there are other more natural ways to keep your home clean.
Keep nasty niffs at bay
How often have you wandered into the kitchen on a summer’s day to discover an unpleasant odour in the air? Perhaps the sun has been shining on the bin, or the composting caddy, all morning and it’s starting to smell a bit ripe. That’s where your H2O e3 Cleaning System comes into its own.
Using nothing more than simple tap water and table salt, it not only cleans up spills but helps deodorise your home too. In just ten minutes, you can make your own non-toxic cleaner, sanitiser (which kills up to 99.9% of viruses and bacteria – even coronavirus) and deodoriser – keeping your home smelling fresh and clean, no matter how hot it gets.
Bring your oven back to life
If there’s one thing that signals summer has arrived, it’s the scent of charcoal wafting across the breeze. Everyone loves a BBQ when the weather is fine. When you’re spending more time eating outdoors, it means your oven is getting used less often. And that gives you the perfect opportunity to give it a good clean. Of course, depending on the state your oven is in, cleaning it out may not seem like a particularly tempting activity. The good news is, if you have your trusty H2O Steam FX Pro to hand, you’ll get it done in no time at all.
The H2O Steam FX Pro combines the power of a steam mop with the convenience of a handheld steamer. For effortless oven cleaning, simply switch to the handheld steamer mode and instantly you’ll have super-hot steam to power through even the toughest baked-on grime. Best of all, you don’t even have to use the nasty chemicals normally sold for oven cleaning – so it’s totally safe to use all around your oven.
Say bye-bye to streaky windows
There’s nothing that lifts your spirit quite like looking out of the window on a bright sunny day. Except of course, when you notice that your windows are covered in streaks, or sticky fingerprints! But don’t worry – whether you’re giving your home ‘The Big Clean’ or just staying on top of your weekly chores, it’s easy to keep your windows clean using the H2O X5 5-in-1 Steam Cleaner. It’s such a versatile machine, it even comes with a specific window cleaner tool with a squeegee, and a window cleaning cloth. Use both together and get your windows looking as good as new in a matter of seconds. Even better, its ergonomic lightweight design means your arm doesn’t tire even after extended use.
Give your mattress a steam-clean refresh
Sultry summer evenings may be great for sitting out in, but they’re not so great for getting a good night’s sleep. We’ve all spent nights tossing and turning because we’re too hot and sticky to nod off – even wearing nothing but a sheet! Usually, it means having to wash your bed clothes more frequently. But it’s also a good idea to refresh your mattress now and again, too.
No doubt you’ve seen the horror stories about what’s lurking inside the average mattress – everything from dust mites and bed bugs to dead skin cells. Yet you can banish all these and bring your mattress back to life with a good steam-clean. Our favourite for this kind of task is the H2O Steam FX Pro – the genius 5-in-1 steam mop, carpet steamer, handheld steamer, window cleaner and garment steamer in one lightweight machine. With nothing more than simple tap water, you can harness the power of steam to give your mattress a really deep clean, leaving it smelling fresh and clean in minutes.
Make light work of eliminating mould
Warm, humid days can cause mould to thrive in the home, especially in the bathroom. A lot of people turn to bleach sprays to keep the spread of mould under control. Yet that can leave quite an overpowering odour. A better bet is to use the power of steam, which not only kills mould but can do so in those hard-to-reach spots, like your bathroom grouting, too.
The H2O HD Advanced 5-in-1 Steam Cleaner comes with a selection of handy tools designed to allow you to point concentrated steam at the most troublesome spots, including the bathroom sink, toilet and shower. But it’s not just for use in the bathroom – the H2O HD Advanced 5-in-1 Steam Cleaner is equally effective at tackling mould in the kitchen too.
Bin those bottles of harmful chemicals
Have you noticed how the bottles of cleaning spray, bleach and polish seem to multiply? Do you ever wonder whether you really need a different cleaner for the bathroom, for the kitchen and for your floors? You might be surprised to learn that the answer to that is no. In fact, you can do away with practically all the chemical cleaners in your home. How? By harnessing the power of nature.
For example, the H20 e3 Cleaning System uses just two natural ingredients – table salt and tap water – and transforms them into a powerful home cleaner. It cuts through grease and grime, kills germs and eliminates odours. And unlike all those chemical cleaners, which cost a fair bit to add to your shopping list each week, it costs pennies to make.
The same goes for the H20 Steam Cleaner range. Every single one of our steam cleaners uses nothing more than tap water to create powerful cleaning results with steam.
