Read the previous posts -- make sure you get the Mr. Clean formula that does NOT contain febreze. It's the febreze that clogs up the scooba.

Here's a link to a post I submitted that has two different Mr. Clean products that don't contain Febreze (yet). These should be safe for your Scooba. I am using the "Home Pro" version of the cleaner successfully. However, the one you mentioned above now contains Febreze and is NOT safe for your Scooba....

If they discontinued it then what am I supposed to use in my Scooba 230 now?

Isn't this the same stuff anyway? http://www.amazon.com/Naturally-Its-Cle ... 672&sr=1-1

You are supposed to just use "hard floor cleaner concentrate" in white bottle.

EDIT: I want the Natural Enzyme Formula back!!

If you read the thread, you would have gotten your answer in the first posting: "The brand Don Limpio is known as mister proper, meister proper , Mr Propre in other countries ".

This brand is known as Mr. Clean in the US and Canada. Just make sure they haven't added "Febreze" to the solution as it clogs up Scooba's internal parts. About 2 tablespoons (not sure how many ml that is, but you can look up the conversion) should be enough per tank to work.

Good Luck,

Philip

Thanks a lot Philip!
That brand in Italy is Mastro Lindo, with my previous Scooba 5900 i used it, but not all the times it worked (a lot of error messages), so it is sure now that Mastro Lindo without Feebreze works with Scooba 390 ?

Hello, this cleaner Mastro Lindo aqua active is it correct and without Febreze ? https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27750790/Mastro%20lindo%201.jpg

The ingredients are this : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/27750790/Mastro%20lindo%202.jpg

I used that with my previous Scooba but i think it might damaged the inside parts, i don't wanna do it if not sure with the new one.

Where i can buy online the Sure equivalent for Scooba 390 in Europe with shipping to Italy ?

Regards,
Riccardo

Of possible interest might be Hoover "citrus & sage" Multi-Surface "sealed floors and area rugs" cleaner for their powered floor scrubber appliances, in 32oz bottles around $8, to be diluted 2oz per quart of cleaning fluid. Apparently not for stone floors (not sealed). Whether other scents sold unknown, this was in Walmart. I sense only a mild fragrance. Makers of these new generation of powered brush and water extracting corded stick floor cleaners supply cleaning solutions for them, such as Bissell besides Hoover. The Hoover actually specifies the dilution amount while Bissell just refers to marks on the machine tank, which looked more dilute to me in a very rough estimate. As made for their cleaning machines such material might be compatible with the similar washing robots.
