Does steamer NEED to be used with distilled water?
I have just bought this steamer (waiting for it to arrive), and am wondering if anyone has used it with tap water, and if that is ok. I know it recommends distilled, but if I used tap water and regularly cleaned it with vinegar solution, would this be ok?

Going through some previousQ & A's on this same issue of can it be used with distiller water, I saw this answer:
"We do not recommend using distilled water with this device. The specific instructions for this device state that it should not be used with distilled water."
In the instructions that came with my Dr Dennis Gross steamer it specifically states to use with tap water and not distilled water. I've attached a pic of the instructions. See #3 under Operating instructions. I don't know if this means you cannot use distilled water. I am going to ask for clarification on this.

it doesn't NEED to be but there are minerals and other substances in purified or tap water that can clog the steamer

Whatever you put in is going back on your face, so to me I want the best water available. Tap water has a lot of chemicals which can clog the nozzle too.
