Try distilled water, then get back to us.

I love mine. It just really thoroughly cleans my floors and the effect lasts. I can't do this with any other mop. Today I took it down to my bathroom basement for the first time and it was miraculous. I can't figure out the carpet attachment. I bought it assuming that it wouldn't do much for the carpet stains. If I could figure out the carpet part, that would be a great bonus, but it's wonderful for my non-carpet floors (cork, hardwood, tile, and laminate in the basement).

Leaves an oily looking residue on ceramics. The pads seem to have a musty odor and have to be replaced often.
Same problem as the other folks, started out okay and now does not work.
I also have hardwoods and would not put water on them.
It is a complete dud of a product. Don't buy it!

Default Shark Vacuums

I have several Shark vacuums and absolutely love them. Have had them for five years and they're still going strong. Have a hand-held one that I use to remove animal hair. It's fantastic. Couldn't live without it.

Have recommended Shark to other people and they, too, love the brand.

The only one I haven't heard good things about is the cordless vacuum sweeper.

Bought a steamer last year and used only once. Was thinking about using it on my hardwood floors, but after reading these posts have decided not to do that.

My shark steam cleaner leaves a haze on the tiled floors. I am wondering if it has something to do with the grout although we sealed it as suggested. I have been going over them after steaming with a dry swiffer mop & that helps somewhat.
