    That's a good idea

    I have a Hoover steam mop dual tank that can take just water and also another tank for specific disinfectant sold by Hoover. I rarely use anything but water.. But there are models that are dual if you want to use it :-)

    I put a couple of drops of tea tree on the mop pad not in the water. I alao use the microfibre coral pads which although they are for a diff brand mop still fit ok. The pads are great bc they dont get soggy too quickly.

    My whole house except for bedrooms is tiled and I'm always looking for the best way. I've been through a few steam mops but they are a pain for a quick spill clean up. I got the aldi mop and bucket with a foot peddle that squeezes the water out. I use very hot water, all hot from the tap plus sometimes boiling from the jug and I find that better and easier than the steam mop.i never use any chemical as it always seemed to streak and very hot water cleans everything.

    Default Steam Mop question

    Thanks for all the replies!!
    It looks like just water is the way to go. I never even thought about the floor boards swelling so thankyou for that info. I don't think I have my manual anymore but I'll google search the mop I have.
    Thanks everyone, appreciate all your input

    Sorry to gatecrash, but just a quick question (if that's ok, OP).

    We've used our steam mop maybe 4-5 times, and each time I notice a strong smell - like chlorine - whilst using it and afterwards. It only has water in it.

    DH reckons it's all the old cleaning products/ bleach coming up out of the tiles. Did anyone else have that happen when they started using one?

    yes , and i put it down to the same reason ....plus i guess the "new plastic" type smell from the unit/machine itself being new
