Thane Steam Cleaner Review



What do you know about steam cleaners?

Did you know that a steam cleaner can:-

Kill up to 99% of bacteria,
Be used on upholstery, carpet, vinyl and a whole host of other surfaces, 
Can be used to steam garments,

and that's just for starters!

Well I didn't know much about the steam cleaners until I was sent the Thane H20 Mop X5 to review but I had heard good things about these type of cleaners.

So firstly when I got it out of the packaging I realised it was light in weight. It had to be assembled but the instructions were quite simple and straightforward. I picked the red cleaner as my kitchen is red and black and I thought it would look quite stylish kept in the kitchen.

The Thane H20 X5 is 5 steam products in 1 – a floor cleaner, fabric steamer, window cleaner, handheld steamer, and carpet cleaner, and all for £99.99. It is simple to use, it just needs ordinary tap water, which it turns into steam at a touch of a button. The X5 kills 99.9% of salmonella and E.Coli on contact and the included microfibre pads grab the dirt and lock it in.






Firstly we used it on our vinyl kitchen floor. The cleaner coped with this well, although with the microfibre pad it didn't glide as well as I thought it would. I find the kitchen floor hard to clean in certain areas such as under the fridge/freezer and in the areas around the kitchen door. It was really good under the fridge freezer as the head swivels, and so I found I managed to get it under the bottom section of the fridge/freezer and clean the areas exposed easier than normal. On the kitchen door and around the cooker hob, Mr W used the angled jet nozzle. This is great for a powerful jet of steam, and the grime was simply steamed away.


Before and After

Mr W then used the round metal brush on our cooker door. We tested it first in a small area to see if it would scratch at all, but we were pleased that it didn't. I would advise you to do the same if you are trying it out. Our cooker door was well and truly brown with baked on grime and food deposits.  With a little time and some patience, Mr W worked on the cooker door until it was throughly cleaned. I was delighted with the result and now it looks sparkly and much cleaner. 



Before, During and After

Then we moved onto the bathroom. Mr W used the angled jet nozzle on the grouting.  I was expecting a miracle here but personally I couldn't see a huge difference. 

Next he tried it out on one of our windows, in the lounge. We both thought it was excellent cleaning the windows, and the finish was shiny and streak free.

I am looking forward to using it next on an old carpet we have, to breath some new life into it. Apparently it's great on mattresses to help eliminate dust mites and bed bugs.

What did I think of the Thane steam cleaner in general? I think this a useful addition to any household. If you have young children the Thane H20 X5 is great to sanitise and clean any surfaces in which they crawl around, such as kitchen, bathroom and playroom. It's perfect for hard to clean surfaces like ovens. Due to the condensation it can create be sure you open the windows in the room you are using it in. It does produce a powerful jet of steam so be sensible when using it, and always test it on a small area first to ensure it doesn't damage or mark fabric materials. 

Would I recommend it? Yes most certainly. It did a great job in the kitchen particularly with the cooker with which I was delighted with. It has great versatility and at this price it's affordable too.

  6. This review has well and truly persuaded me to get a Thane steam cleaner. If there's one job I hate then it's the oven and if it can help me with that, then I am won over. Also, no need for all those harsh chemicals either. Excellent!

    1. I think you are right, it is so versatile and no scrubbing the cooker anymore!

  11. I have this and I love that it's so easy to quickly zip around the floor and that there's no need for chemicals. I do find it works better on some floors that others, it's brilliant for laminate flooring but with real stone tiles it can be iffy but overall it's a great piece of kit to have :)

  13. I have got the H2O steam cleaner. I have had it since 2010 and LOVE it, but I was a bit disappointed when I found out it only kills bacteria if held on a spot for 10 seconds, and the way I whizz around the floor that does not happen on every spot. Also they didn't even suggest using a product (in the instructions) but of course I do, so I hope those at least do kill the nasties. I wouldn't be without something like this for hard floors. xx

  14. Wow, it certainly sounds like a versatile piece of kit! Often these items sound great but aren't all that in practice. Sounds like a good one :)
