1. What cleaner/solution to use in Tineco?

It is recommended to use the Tineco Floor Cleaning Solution in your Tineco vacuum cleaner. It is engineered to work with Tineco wet dry vacuum cleaners. The powerful formula removes grease, dirt, and stains. It is safe for sealed hardwood, ceramic, tile, linoleum, marble, stone, and other hard floors.

2. Why use Tineco Floor Cleaning Solution?

The Tineco Floor Cleaning Solution is completely safe and non-toxic. It is formulated with high-tech and eco-friendly ingredients. Also, it contains no heavy metals, phosphates, or dyes.

3. Can you use any cleaning solution in Tineco?

While you can use any cleaning solution in your Tineco wet dry vacuum cleaner, it is recommended to use the Tineco Floor Cleaning Solution to achieve the best results and to ensure the device’s long-term functionality. The Tineco Floor Cleaning Solution is designed to optimize the amount of bubbles produced.

It is not recommended to use other third-party solutions, including Pine Sol, Mr. Clean, Bissell cleaning solution, Fabuloso, and Bona in the Tineco vacuum cleaner because it can cause an overabundance of bubbles when cleaning, filling up the dirty water tank within minutes of use. 

4. Can you use Pine Sol in Tineco?

It’s not recommended to use Pine Sol in your Tineco vacuum cleaner due to the very foamy consistency. Using Pine Sol may cause an overabundance of bubbles when cleaning, filling up the Tineco’s dirty water tank within minutes of use. If you want the Pine Sol smell, apply on the floor, not inside the machine.

5. Can you put Tineco parts in the dishwasher?

It is not recommended to use a dishwasher to clean the Tineco parts, like the brush cover and the HEPA filter, because the parts can become damaged easily. Please use tap water to gently clean Tineco parts. You can simply rinse the Tineco parts two or three times with tap water.

6. Can you use Tineco without water?

All Tineco wet dry vacuum cleaners can be used without water for dry vacuuming.

Ideally, you would want to use it with solution and water to automatically adjust solution and clean water flow to ensure an ideal cleaning result.

7. Can you use bleach in Tineco?

Tineco does not recommend adding bleach inside your Tineco machine. Bleach can degrade the plastic and rubber components in the machine. Additionally, using bleach to clean hard floors can damage the surface of several floors, including wood floors and natural stone floors.

8. Can you use vinegar in Tineco?

Tineco does not recommend adding apple cider vinegar or white vinegar inside your Tineco machine because it is considered a descaling agent. Not only does adding vinegar void the Tineco machine’s warranty, but it can also cause damage to the machine or make it unsafe to use.

If you wish to use vinegar to deodorize hard floors, create a solution by mixing ½ cup of white vinegar to a gallon of water. Apply the vinegar solution directly on the floor, not inside the Tineco machine.

9. Can you use Tineco on carpet and rugs?

You can use a Tineco vacuum cleaner on carpet and rugs, but the results will not be as good as using it on hard floors. Tineco vacuum cleaners are designed for hard floors, not carpets and rugs.

10. Who owns Tineco?

Tineco is owned by the Ecovacs Robotics Group. More specifically, Tineco is a sub-brand of premium smart appliances under the Ecovacs Robotics Group. On March 13, 2019, Tineco launched the first smart vacuum cleaner, and became the pioneer of the category.
