Is there any reason not to steam clean apideas?

Kind of depends on the steam cleaner.....the one i have would obliterate them.

I think I would look at washing soda first. Does a good job on propolis.

Co-op sells washing soda,or even better loads of pound shops do it in litre bottles of powder.

PH - Is this product only purchased on line or do hardware shops stock. Yes, I am being lazy asking before looking - but so much to do so little time .....
(Hope all well with the poorly ones and that they are progressing)

A lot of supermarkets carry washing soda in the laundry area, but it's not usually there in any great abundance. Normally 1kg bags or boxes.
