The Oreck Steam-It uses steam to remove dirt & grime. The Oreck Steam-It has a unique vapor chamber making it easy to clean above the floor without spilling. It's an easy way to get a deep down clean without the use of chemicals or detergents. Just add water, turn the Steam-It on, and it heats up in less than a minute creating a high-temperature, low-moisture dry steam that quickly removes dirt and deep cleans virtually any hard floor surface. To sanitize those particular hard floor areas just focus the steam on high while mopping for at least 5 seconds. It also cleans windows spot-free, cleans kitchen and bath fixtures, tile and grout, helps remove stains from furniture and car upholstery, and even freshens pillows and mattresses. And surfaces are dry within minutes.
