Instead of using plain demineralized or distilled water when steam cleaning, you can add some fresh scents to give your home a nice refreshing aroma. In this article, we shall guide you on the best scented demineralized water and other products you can use to add an aroma to the air when cleaning.

There are several varieties of scents you can consider according to your preference. Check out this guide to learn more.

What is Bissell Scented Water?

Unlike ordinary demineralized water, Bissell-scented water is added into a steam mop when cleaning to add fragrance and aroma to the room. If you have pets in your home, you can add it to the steam mop when cleaning to remove unpleasant smells.

It is available in different varieties such as eucalyptus and mint, citrus, and spring breeze. Buying scented demineralized water is not as cost effective as ordinary distilled or demineralized water.

When choosing scented demineralized water, Bissell and Steam & Go are the two main choices. There are other options you can consider such as boutique style linen or ironing water but these are equally, if not more expensive than Bissell and Steam & Go fragranced water.

Price wise, Bissell and Steam & Go are very similarly priced for the same size bottles.

Other Ways of Adding Scents While Cleaning

Bissell Odor Eliminating Scent Discs 

Another way of adding scent to your steam mop is by using the Bissell Odor Eliminating Scent Discs.  These scent discs come as a pack of 8 pieces to ensure that you have enough for several weeks. 

They are very effective in removing pet odors and other unpleasant smells from the floor. You can use them when cleaning any floor type that is suitable to steam mop.

In the Bissell PowerFresh steam mops, you can place these discs in the tray (Powerfresh Deluxe model) or in the steam mop pad (other Bissell models).

If you don’t have a Bissell steam mop, try placing the disc inside your steam mops microfiber cover instead. Check back regularly to make sure it hasn’t broken apart.

If you don’t want the odor eliminating scent (designed for pets), you can also purchase Spring Breeze scent in a disc.

Steam Discs You Might Want to Avoid

These Bissell compatible fragrance discs from Maitys are around 55 cents per disc making them an affordable buy. But, you may get what you pay for with these. Here are the biggest consumer complaints:

  • Fall apart easily
  • No smell or not very strong
  • Quality not comparable to branded products
  • Clogged the bottom of the steamer as they disintegrated easily
  • Scented demineralized water had a stronger, longer lasting smell

So, if you’re wondering why I haven’t recommended the cheapest possible option, that’s why.

Frequently Asked Questions

adding fragrance while steam cleaning

How Do You Use Bissell Demineralized Water?

Add the scented demineralized water to your steam mop water tank. The bottles come pre-diluted so you don’t need to mix with anything else.

Do You Have to Use Demineralized Water in a Steam Mop?

Demineralized water is very safe for steam mops since it doesn’t have minerals such as calcium that may clog the machine. If you don’t have demineralized water, you can use distilled water instead. 

What Can You Put in a Shark Steam Mop to Make it Smell Nice?

You can use Bissell scented demineralized water in a Shark steam mop for a fresh smell when cleaning. You can also use Steam & Go scented water. Alternatively, try placing a scent disc inside the microfiber mop pad cover.

Can You Put Scented Demineralized Water in a Steam Cleaner?

Yes, you can add scented demineralized water to your steam cleaner boiler tank. Never add any other products however, like vinegar, bleach, perfume or floor cleaner, use distilled or demineralized water only.

What’s Your Favorite Fragrance?

I love a lemon scent and will be excited to try out the generic branded fragrance discs. Other than that, Bissell Spring Breeze fragrance is a winner for me. It’s sweet, florally and happy.

Buying scented demineralized water is a little luxury as its not the most cost effective way to clean. Don’t forget that steam has a natural fresh smell too.

My go-to is usually distilled water in my steam cleaner, and essential oils in my diffuser for fragrance. I’ve tried adding essential oils to microfiber cloths, but the heat of the steam changes the scent, so I wouldn’t recommend this.

So, now you know which are the best-smelling scented demineralized waters, which one will you choose? Let me know in the comments below!
