Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Somewhat new_ leaking dark water on white shirt- washed then repeated


Answers :

I stopped vacuuming my shirts ages ago, and mostly everyone else did, so I assume you're talking about an iron?

The dark water is just tap water that was sitting inside the iron and caused it to rust.

After you rinse the iron several times with distilled water, keep using distilled water from now on.
It's about $1.00 per gallon and you can buy it in any supermarket.
When you use distilled water in your iron, there is no need to empty it every time you're done with the weekly ironing.

My Eureka Atlantis Express is brand new - never used. I took it out of the box, read the manual, filled the soap and clean water tanks, put them in. I lifted the machine off the counter to take into the living room but all the water came running out of the bottom all over the kitchen floor. I can see where the little white plastic piece sticks up into the water release valve and lets the water out. How do you stop this? Can it be fixed?

I have a new Hoover Dual V steam vac that I bought from a neighbor who only used it once. I have only used it once since then and it worked great. This time, because I am pregnant, I bought some non-toxic cleaner that was much thicker than the very watery Hoover soap. This vac has a wash option and a rinse option. The rinse option works (sprays and sucks properly), but the wash cycle doesn't at all-neither soap nor water comes out. Nothing comes out, but it still sucks. I took everything o

Vinegar Hello! I really love my new Shark Steam Mop. It is useful for cleaning my Pergo floors without streaking. Can I add some white vinegar to the water or will that damage the mechanism or clog something? I am using distilled water, by the way. Thanks- Denise

I am still awaiting for your reply, [email protected], regarding water reservoir cap steam leaking is this normal or do I require a new cap or rubber ring, otherwise I will have to take my custome elsewhere. Many thanks.
