    defrosted freezer with steam cleaner 17th May 17 at 3:15 PM
    its probably not an approved use of a steam cleaner but just used mine to defrost my chest freezer! start to finish 15 mins including cleaning. It was so caked with frost that i couldn't close it properly. Took all the food out i could apart from the iced up fish fingers and peas t the bottom and used steam cleaner with the little gun attachment. Went round the edges then was able to get a spoon behind it and it came off in sheets. as i said probably not the best way but there was no damaging of the freezer like there was when i used a sharp object to get it all off

    I've always used my steam cleaner. Much quicker than anything else.

    I stand a fan heater in front of the open freezer door, works for me.
    Ignore me if you like, it's not the real me anyway.

    Saucepans of boiling water work well too, so long as child labour doesn't scald themselves (or each other...)
    I have a bad feeling this snazzy tech will mean *I* am supposed to do it.
