More Outdoor Uses For Your Steam Cleaner

I just wrote an article on some of the ways that I use my steam cleaner outdoors and the response has been overwhelming. It seems like everyone has their own best steam cleaner suggestions on how to use their steam cleaning machine outside the house. So I have gathered up some of the ones that I really liked, and plan on using around my own home, and am now going to share them with all of you kind folks. If you’re ready for some more great tips on using this device out in your yard, patio or garden, then be sure to read along. I got some great suggestions for you.

Outdoor Furniture

Do you usually have to go out and scrub your patio furniture down and then hit it with a hose? Well, if you do, then you should know there is an easier way. Just break out your steam cleaner and get those tables and chairs clean in no time flat.

Window Screens

Many people have become wise to the fact that these machines are great at cleaning windows, but not many people know that they are also fantastic for cleaning screens. Pull out your screens and clean them with the power of steam. Even if you don’t think they were that dirty, you’ll still be amazed about how much dirt and dust comes out of them. Try it for yourself and see.

Outdoor Taps

If you’re like me and live in an area with hard water, then you may have noticed your outdoor water taps get pretty clogged up with lime scale. Especially around the areas where the garden hose attaches to the nozzle. It can be really difficult to clean this mess off by using ordinary methods, but it seems like a steam cleaner was made for the job. The heat from the cleaner will lift this scale off in no time flat, and do it without you having to use a lot of elbow grease. When it’s done doing its job, just use a rag or towel to wipe it clean.


You might know that you can detail your car with your steam cleaner, but did you know that you can also clean your boat with it?  My neighbor uses his steam cleaner to not only clean the windows but also the hull. And let me tell you, he has one of the best looking boats in the entire neighborhood. I have also seen many steam cleaner reviews that say the same thing.

Your Child’s Play Area

You can use this device to not only clean the toys that your children uses in the pool or the back yard, but it can also be used to clean the play equipment your children use. It cleans things like the monkey bars, the slide or the swing like magic. Just be careful using it on some plastics because they are sensitive to heat and cleaning them might cause them to warp.

Garden Tools

Are your garden tools all caked with dirt? If they are, then take your steam cleaner out there and get them looking and working like new. These machines can clean areas that often go untouched by traditional cleaning methods. Just remember, once you have cleaned them with steam be sure to wipe them off with a dry cloth. You don’t want any lingering moisture left on your garden tools that might rust them.
