    This is all show and no go daveyboy.

    He is cleaning no more than you would being thorough with a WFP.

    Placebo effect. All noise and steam. 'Oh that must be good cleaning' A steamer like that wont revive 'greyed' frames to white, still need abbrasion. Much quicker WFP and magic sponge.

    I have a 4.5 bar 190 degree machine. By the looks of his mine is more powerful and still wont get the frame white without a brush attachment for abbrasion. All he's doing is blowing some dirt out the crevacies that regular cleaning would get anyhow.

    That answers that then. Also, why bother when you can use ghat hg upvc spray stuff and get great results, all the grey gone etc.

    They do work well an all surfaces with the right attachments. However in this video he is litterally just 'blowing steam'
