Filling with Water
Important: Your handheld steam cleaner features a water tank with a boiler system to create powerful, pressurized steam for cleaning and sanitizing.* To properly heat up and build pressure, the water tank MUST NOT BE OVERFILLLED. DO NOT FILL WITH MORE THAN 300 ml or 10 oz.
If overfilled, water replaces the air space in the tank required to heat up and build pressure. If this happens, you will experience the following:
- Hot water will leak out of the vents on the safety cap.
- When the stream trigger is pressed, a stream of water will release out of the steam nozzle.
- Once the water is cleared, it will change to a spitting and sputtering steam/water mixture.
After the above steps have cycled through, proper steam will start to release out of the steam nozzle for optimal steam cleaning.
Note: Use of distilled water in place of tap water is recommended to prolong the life of your steamer. Do not use chemicals in the water tank of your machine. Other solutions may harm the machine and void the warranty.
|1. Push down on the safety cap while turning counter clockwise.||2. Slowly pour 300 mL or 10 oz of water into steamer.
Do not overfill.
|3. Reattach the safety cap by pushing down while turning clockwise until the cap is tightly secured. If cap is not tightly secured, steam will leak out of vents on cap.|
Refilling Water During Use
Important: Your handheld steam cleaner features a water tank with a boiler system to create powerful, pressurized steam for cleaning and sanitizing.
* For safety, the water tank MUST be depressurized before opening the safety cap to refill with water during use.
|1. Unplug your steam cleanerand wait 5 minutes.||2. After 5 minutes, press the stream trigger to release all
built up pressure in the water tank. When steam is no longer
present, all pressure has been released and the water tank is
|3. If safety cap is still hot, use an oven mitt to remove.
Follow steps 1 to 3 above to refill your tank. Be sure safety cap is tightly secured before plugging back in.
WARNING Never put descaling, alcoholic, vinegar, or detergent products into the steam cleaner, as this may damage it or make it unsafe for use.
*Use as instructed. Results may vary. Tested under controlled laboratory conditions with accessory nozzle only.
Steam Cleaning and Sanitizing
Your handheld steam cleaner was tested by third-party laboratories to ensure sanitization and elimination of 99.9% of germs and bacteria under controlled conditions. Please use as directed; your results may vary.
Before using your handheld steam cleaner, please note:
- Do not use on porous, hard surfaces.
- Do not use on painted, plastic or vinyl covered surfaces, wax polished furniture or floors, synthetic materials and fabrics, velvet, leather or other delicate, heat or steam sensitive surfaces, materials or fabrics.
- To sanitize, only use on non-porous, hard surfaces with the accessory nozzle only.
- Test on an inconspicuous area before first use on a surface. If hard surface is effected, do not use the steam cleaner to clean.
- Thermal shock can shatter glass. Before cleaning cold glass surface, carefully warm the surface by directing the steam jet on the glass from a distance of no less than four to six inches.

|1. Unplug from the grounded outlet. Wait 5 minutes for the machine to cool down.||2. Press the stream trigger to release all built up pressure in the water tank. When steam is no longer coming out of the steam nozzle all pressure has been released. The water tank is depressurized and remaining water can be emptied. See “Refilling Water During Use” (page 6) to safely depressurize
