Has anybody used one of these hand held steam cleaners? Are they any good or do they leave upholstery too wet. I was thinking of buying one for the mh.

Don't know about the hand held steamer, but I use my steam cleaner-or did to clean the van seats and carpet. Doesn't leave them wet, just damp
so choose a day when windows can be left open for quick dry
(I don't have a security problem so would need to take that into consideration)
They dry anyway but just take a little longer if van closed up and weather favourable

Careful what cleaners you do try. Without following the instructions where they say 'Try an inconspicuous area first' I went for the most prominant. It cleaned it but also took some of the colour, which did not show until it dried.
It is very annoying, but I cannot remember which cleaner I used
Will try the steam cleaner which sounds a good idea.

Hire a Rug Doctor from your local dry cleaner. Johnsons do them and so do B & Q.

Don't forget to use Scotchguard or fabric protector afterwards. The retailers who hire Rug Doctors will also be able to sell you the fabric protector.

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.
