The Shark steam cleaner is a portable, hand held cleaning unit that uses heat and steam. The attachments that come with the steam unit can be used to clean a wide range of surfaces and are appropriate for different applications such as flat surfaces, nook and niches, garments, thin and narrow spaces, and surfaces that need scrubbing.

Unplug the steam bottle.

Step 2

Grasp the water tank cap, then turn it counter clockwise until it is unscrewed from the bottle. Remove the cap.

Step 3

Pour distilled water into the filling flask that came with the steam cleaner. Pour water from the flask into the water tank until the water level reaches the filled mark.

Step 4

Screw the water tank cap clockwise into the bottle until it is seated.
