    Steamers - How do you use it?

    For those of you that utilize some type of steamer with your detailing work, what do you use it for the most?

    Please be specific!

    Re: Steamers - How do you use it?

    Have used it under the hood where it latches and the springs (they had oil and grease on them and I want to re-lubricate them). Used on door jambs, soiled seats, and floors on interior. Used under and around Front Grill area.

    That is all I can think of that I used steam on. May have used in other areas but it is to hot to think any harder, my brain will start sweating, LOL

    Re: Steamers - How do you use it?

    I can only pick one option in the poll? Not fair!

    Let's see...

    Interior:
    * Stained carpets/mats/seats
    * Cleaning consoles and cupholders
    * Extremely dirty glass
    * Air vents and dash seams

    Door Jambs

    Engines (never around electrical connectors/wiring)

    Cleaning old wax/polish from panel gaps/etc.

    There are all kinds of cool things you can do with steam!

    Since this poll is on top of every thread I use I voted for other - because I don't own one.
