yes you can use white vinegar diluted in water to clean your mop. I have just done ot and it worked a treat. make sure that you have the mop positioned so the steam goes into the air. Allow all water to disperse then refill with clean water and and allow that to disperse also. The downside is the smell of vinegar.

Tried Johns solution with no improvement then filled one third of tank with warm water, drop in a Steradent tablet leave for 15 minutes then warm up, clean and refill warm up. It worked for me.

i THINK IT'S A PROBLEM OF LIMESTONE. YOU CAN TRY TO PUT WHITE VINEGAR IN THE TANK AND LIGHT UP. IT WILL BE TAKE A FEW MINUTES.
