A Steam Buggy is a home steam cleaner that you use to clean a variety of surfaces, such as your hob, oven, upholstery, carpets, floors, windows and mirrors. The Steam Buggy uses attachments such as a Squeegee and a brush. It also has an extension wand to help reach ceiling fans and heating and air conditioning ducts. Besides cleaning your home, the Steam Buggy also steams wrinkles out of your clothing and drapes.

    Unplug the Steam Buggy's power cord if it is not already unplugged from the electrical socket. Pour warm tap water into a measuring cup (which is included) up to the fill line. Remove the reservoir cap,and pour the water into the Steam Buggy's reservoir. Replace the reservoir cap.

    Press the power switch to the "Off" position if it is not already set to "Off," and then plug in the power cord into an electrical socket.

  3. 3

    Lift up the door on the front of the Steam Buggy, and insert one end of the steam hose nozzle, pushing it in until it is secure. You can use the nozzle by itself to direct steam to places you want to clean, or add an extension tube and an attachment.

    Insert one end of an extension tube into the steam hose nozzle. Line up the hole on the attachment you want to use with the protruding button on the extension tube until it locks in place.

    Clothing and fabric

    Read labels on your clothing, drapes and other fabrics before using the Steam Buggy, so you'll know the best setting to use.

    Insert the male plug located at the base of the hose of the steam iron into the Steam Buggy.

  4. 4

  5. 5

    Press the power switch to the "Off" position to turn it off.
