    My beige armchair is grubby and I was considering buying a steam cleaner to tackle it and all other soft furnishings I can find. Any advice or suggestions for good models would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hi Erith,

    We have this key post on Steam Cleaners which appears to back up my theory that they are for floors etc. and not upholstery but I could be wrong!

    You don't mention what material the chair is made of?

    Leave it to these guys they are good, the steamer will do more damage than good they are great for cleaning solid surfaces but for anything material they can/may do damage.

    Hi SE, I think it is "chenille" but that could be complete arse.

    D22, looks expensive. Did you use them? Any hint on cost?

    Used the Limerick branch for carpet cleaning they did a fine job wasn't really expensive and was worth it for that really clean smell

    Hi again D22, still no idea what "wasn't really expensive" might mean in new money. I have no reference for this kind of job.

    Erith,

    A quick read of one of these would indicate that chenille is delicate and due care should be taken especially with water.

    Try having a read thru them and see if you can get any info.
