Is it harmful to use deionized water?

Hi, I'd like to know why is it harmful to use deionised (demineralised) water for the steamer?

  • Hi Marty,

    It's not directly harmful to use deionized water in your hand-steamer. However, deionized is not the same as distilled.

    Deionized: Is exactly what the name indicates, water free of ions. There can still be organic residue in deionized water, like limescale.

    Distilled water: Is completely free of ions AND organic residues, like minerals and limescale.

    This means that deionized water can still contain limescale. Residues of limescale can build up inside the steamer over time, causing it to malfunction.
