HELP!! Shark Steam Mop problem
Sorry for yet another post about steam mops but I'm really stumped. After reading some great reviews about the Shark steam mop I finally broke down and got one. I got it home and tried it right away and now I have to reclean my floors!! I tried it on laminate, bathroom tile, and ceramic tile in my foyer and all 3 surfaces now have a residue on them. After doing the bathroom floor I sprayed it with vinegar and water and wiped it with a white rag. Not only did the residue come off, but so did a good amount of dirt!
I know it's not the steam because I have a Shark canister steamer with a floor attachment that works just fine. I just thought that the mop would be more convenient to use on a daily basis. Am I doing something wrong? Are you supposed to wash the cloths before using them? I used distilled water like it recommended in the instruction book. I know it's not left over residue from previous cleaning because for the past couple of years I've been using vinegar and water on the floors.
Any help would be appreciated. I'm getting ready to take it back and that's a shame because it's so easy to use so I would probably clean my floors more often!
