The Shark Portable Steamer Uses Pockets on most tools and bonnets and pads on certain special tools. The pad is constructed to attach to the bottom of the handheld steam scrubber by "Hook and Loop" attachments. It is flat and is made of an all-purpose microfiber terry material. The bonnet is constructed to attach to the bottom of the handheld steam scrubber similar to a shower cap. It has an elastic edge that "hugs" the bottom of the steam scrubber. It is made of a heavy duty, large shag textile. The pockets wrap around the wedge or cylinder and close with a drawstring. They can be made of different materials for each job (microfiber versus the scrubber pad or the squegee pad)
Tap water is ok to use in the handheld steam scrubber. Distilled water is better for the longest boiler life. *However, if you live in an area with hard water we recommend using distilled water to prolong the life of your product.
Distilled water is best. We have learned that distilled water is empty of all minerals and undergoes a multi-step process to be classified as distilled. However, filtered water is indeed better than unfiltered for the boiler life.
