The Steamfast SF-246 is for heavy duty cleaning.. It would be too powerful for clothes, I would recommend one of the hand held steam cleaners like the shark.

answer 2
I haven't tried this, and don't think it would be a good idea to use this on delicate clothes. I have a separate steamer for that type of thing, but only to take out the wrinkles. If I need something cleaned that's an valuable item, I take it to the cleaners.

Question

What is the difference between this and the McCulloch Portable Power Steam Cleaner, MC1246?

They are the same price and if you put the two pages side by side they look identical except for the color.

How many amps? Can it be used to defrost a freezer?

I don't know the amps but it will defrost a freezer. I used it to defrost some ice that was jamming my ice maker. It saved me about $150 for a repair man to come out and look at it.

Just have lots of towels to wipe up the water that will melt. Also be aware to hold it away from you a bit.. steam and ice don't mix well. It will be quite misty.

how does this work on carpet stains

It works awesome... but don't point down - use it sideways. You want the steam to push against it - not push it further into the carpet. Common mistake. Also dab with paper towels DO NOT RUB it will again be harder to get out of carpet.

Check out my review - I posted a video of dog puke (after eating horse manuer) on a white carpet and how easy it came up.

Can this be used to clean suede furniture? If not, does anyone know of an affordable steam cleaner that can?

The SF-246 is for heavy duty cleaning, depending on the age fo the furniture might decide whether it would work or not. If you have light stains, try soap and water first. If you have pet stains then test in a small hidden corner first. Like I said if it is an older couch, you may make a really CLEAN spot and the rest of the couch will look really dirty.
I used it on a 2 year old suede couch that had cat urine on it. I couldn't believe that it got the smell out so well. It was awesome! And it did not ruin my couch. Good Luck!

I've used it on tile floors and it does a great job. It comes with extensions like a vacuum cleaner so there's no hands and knees work for the floors.
