Actually Chis ours ARE much different...Most don't produce steam at all
(it;s really a misnomer)and are really a mixture of hot tap water (some very
new units have their own built in heaters), mixed with special detergent
which is sprayed onto the carpet, agitated into the fibers, and then sucked
up into a waste tank that is then emptied at the end of cleaning.

They are now selling some "Euro Steamers" that are what you are talking
about, but they are still rare and not what we usually mean....

Cross pond cleaning 101 is now dismissed....<g>

"It is interesting to note here that the Europeans always consider
themselves vastly superior to any other race they encounter, since they can
lie, cheat, steal, and litigate (marks of a civilised culture they say)-
whereas all the Aboriginals can do is happily survive being left in the
middle of a vast red-hot desert, equipped with a stick."Douglas Adams
