Bissell Scented Demineralized Water
Bissell Scented Demineralized Water is common choice of people wanting to clean their home using steam mops, while leaving the refreshing scent in the air, increasing the feeling of freshness. Since demineralized water leaves no residue on the water heater, it extends the operating life of the steam mops.
The use of scented demineralized water also has other benefits as well:
- cleaning with the demineralized water leaves no dulling residue on the floor,
- cleaning with the scented demineralized water requires no scented discs to be placed in the steam mop cleaning pads (which are often washed) for additional scent after cleaning,
- even steam mops that are designed for use with tap water can benefit from demineralized water due to easier maintenance, etc.
Bissell Scented Demineralized Water comes in several fragrances:
- Eucalyptus Mint,
- Spring Fresh.
Bissell Scented Demineralized Water is used just as any other demineralized water - fill the water tank with it, and use the steam mop as you usually would.
Note: Bissell Scented Demineralized Water is 'common' demineralized water with scent (fragrance) added and it contains no cleaning agents that might release harmful fumes or that could damage the steam mop - the cleaning is done via hot steam and cleaning pad! It is non-caustic liquid, containing no bleach, no phosphates, no heavy metals, no dyes.
Bissell Scented Demineralized Water can be used on all high-temperature and steam resistant surfaces like ceramic tiles, marble, stone and similar.
Sealed wooden floors can be cleaned with steam mops, just be sure that there are no cracks in the wood finish and that the floor is certified for cleaning with the steam mop.
The use on steam-sensitive materials and floors should be avoided in order to avoid any damage.
Fragrance left after cleaning is pleasant, not strong - nonetheless, some people 'dilute' scented water with demineralized/distilled water to decrease the scent left after the cleaning.
Long Story Short: Tap water is cheap, but when used for cleaning with the steam mops, it can leave a residue on the floor and on the water heater within the steam mop. Hence, the use of distilled or demineralized water in steam mops is highly recommended.
And if you are using distilled or demineralized water in your steam mop, why not give a scented demineralized water a try? :)
