With a tingle of warmth in the air, it's an unspoken tradition to give everything a good spring spruce up and shake off the dust.

Focus on areas of your home that have been neglected during the winter months: think cleaning curtains, woodwork, and a complete overhaul of the kitchen.

If you are tackling upholstery or curtains a quick burst of steam is quick and effective. A steam generator iron is a good investment piece, as it quickly provides constant steam and a high temperature. The Philips GC6520/02 Steam Generator Iron can be used vertically, its clever steam tip reaches even the smallest areas, perfect for those crinkled curtains.

And if you’re starting to pull out your summer clothes from the depths of your wardrobe, this Rowenta IS6200 Compact Valet Garment Steamer is the perfect solution for removing stubborn creases and reviving last season’s clothes.
