    The steam cleaner comes with directioins. if you have lost them. the lid where you put the water has a fill line in it.. fill to the line and dump your cleaner in the water.. that is all there is to it..

    remember when using it don't use to much water and keep going over it until it is pretty much dry.. or you will get mold in your carpet.. don't know where you live but if you have high humidity .. put a fan on the floor to help dry it.. if you have done it correctly the floor should be dry with in an hour after cleaning it. move slowly so it cleans really good.. I do this as a part time job and it is a good job..

    if you want better results try spraying the cleaner into the carpet first, leave it for 5 minutes then use the steam vacuum just with water.

    Depends on the brand , some have seperate containers and some mix the solution with the water. If you have a machine that mixes it probably came with a measuring cup of some sort. Sometimes the top of the water/solution container is the "measuring cup". If not go online to the manufacturer's web site and they will probably be able to tell you.

    The cap that seals the cleaning solution reservoir usually has a fill line inside. Check that. Good luck and Happy Cleaning!

    The best answer is to look up your particular model on the net and read the owners manual... Be careful, cuz we did something that we weren't suppose to do and the thing broke

    read the instructions in the manual. it will tell you how much cleaner to use.

    there should be a mix ratio on the solution bottle per gallon of water.

    most of them say some where on machine , I would guess a half cup, is what most of them are.

    Look in your manuel. All steamers are different.
