Just like thousands of other people out there I never used distilled or purified water inside my Shark Steam Mop. This solution of using only tap water worked for several years until one day my trusty Shark Steam Mop simply stopped producing steam.
I searched the internet hoping to find a solution to this common problem and I tried them all. Luckily one of the unclogging solutions worked for me immediately and that was soaking the internals of the Shark Steam Mop with CLR. CLR stands for Calcium, Lime and Rust, this is exactly what clogged my nozzles because let's face it our tap water is not what it used to be.
I filled my Shark Steam Mop tank with a 50/50 solution of CLR to water and let it marinate for several hours. Some people suggest soaking for at least a day for really clogged steam mops
In my How-to Tutorial Video below I'll even show you that I also tried a few other popular solutions like white vinegar, using a pipe cleaner, a q-tip, and trying to power wash the nozzle with my sink sprayer hose.
