Vax S2S-1 Bare Floor Pro Upright Steam Stick, Grey
Love it, but it broke
This cleaner was exactly what I wanted. Simple to use, stores in the cupboard. Great results. Bought in July 2013, switched it on this week and it didn't get hot at all. Back to John Lewis to sort out a replacement. I have bought another Vax, just hope this lasts longer. I agree with the comments about the water tank. It can be difficult to get off. I thought it just mine.

Does exactly what it says on the tin
I don't know how the hardened black grim gets in on my shoes but this cleaner has spruced things up wonderfully in under 24 hours from receipt. No more hands and knees and scrubbing!
The 2 year guarantee was a definite selling point, hopefully it will never be needed. The water tank is a bit reluctant to come off but this may well get easier with time, and that is all I can find to complain about.

Quick and easy
I've just used this for the first time after having used a bucket and mop for years. I had it on the highest setting, which did leave the floors quite wet and streaky, but reading other reviews it seems a lower setting (as well as not pressing the trigger quite so much# will remedy this.
I couldn't smell any detergent, although the tank was emptying, which was a bit disappointing as I like a nice clean smell. #I suppose I could always spray a cleaner on the floor myself as I go, and not use the detergent.)
The floors were easy to clean and the shape of the cleaning head means I could get into corners well. It's very lightweight with a long cord, and stands upright on its own. It comes with a spare mop head, and the used one can just be popped in the wash. Overall, very pleased.

Ordered cleaner at about 11.30 on 20/13' it was delivered -at 9.15 on 22/04/13. Amazing Thankyou. By 11.30 used it , & really did the job, Have had 2 steam cleaners before, & didn't get result I would like, so thought I would go to John Lewis this time for the 2 year guarantee, so glad I did ,The only negative is it is quite hard to push, but will accept this for a good result. So at Last a cleaner that does what it says on the box!!!

Used this for the first time today, really easy to use, cleaned a very large area with one tank of water, large garden room, large kitchen, hall, utility room and large downstairs loo all done in approx 15mins, other reviews mention the wet floor - of course it's going to be wet it's using water/steam but it dried really quickly (5 - 8mins max) thats what i call a good product and my floors are super clean - the tanks are not intuitive to remove you have to push them upwards, once mastered its easy too.

broke after 3 moths
The suction hose broke after 3 months and Vax customer services refused to help me. I even offered to pay to ave it repaired but they just kept hiding behind some small print.

Never use a mop & bucket again
Since I had open heart surgery I found very difficult to use the mop also the vacuum cleaner. I saw it on the TV and looked very easy to use so I looked into it and read all the reviews and bought the Steamer from JL blue water.
After using it I can't believe how easy it was and quick did the kitchen floor in no time at all. It's just glides into all the corners. I should have bought one years ago when I was working full time with a young family.
Also bought the carpet cleaner solution its the best to get rid of very stubborn stains like make up and if its does not come off (in very small areas in the carpet)when steamed do it by hand stains will disappear like magic. I will Never use a mop and bucket again. Highly recommend the steam cleaner.

I was a little worried about some of the reviews on this but I decided just to go for it and I am not disappointed. I have never had a steam mop before and now I wonder why. It has cleaned my floors beatifully and leaves them much drier than my mop and bucket did. It will take a bit of getting used to I think but so far so good. Another great producet from Vax.
