They sell an iron cleaning chemical (faultless) you pour in with the water. It's in a little tube and you can probably find it at Wal-Mart.

Why is my rowenta iron having something white coming out of it?


Do not use water softened by salt. It\'s all the salt coming out of your iron from the water you are using. Use bottled "Spring Water" do not use "Distilled Water". Your iron will spit and pop.

Cleaning a Steam Iron White Scale and Brown Water


If you are having problems with your steam iron spitting out brown water or white scale all over your clothing, then you need to read this tip.

Both of these problems are caused by poor quality water being used in your steam iron.
The problems are different in that they are caused by two different types of poor water quality. The brown coloring of the water is usually caused by organic matter or iron mineral in your tap water.

If you are getting white scale on your clothing from your iron then it is usually because of calcium or other minerals in your tap water.

Either of these problems can also contribute to spitting or leaking of the iron when in use.

To clean the inside of the iron you must first empty all the water from the iron. Then fill the iron half full with bottled spring water and then fill to full with vinegar. Run the iron at its hottest setting for 15 minutes and then drain the solution. Fill again with just the bottled spring water. Reheat and then empty. After removing all of the water, turn on the iron and let it sit in the horizontal position for a few seconds to evaporate the last of the water. This will not hurt your iron, but will remove all the moisture before storage.

To keep your iron working well, use bottled spring water, and remember to remove all water before storing your iron. Always allow the iron to cool and store it on its heel.
Using the right water will prolong the life of your iron. Commercial de-scaling cleaners are hard on the inside of the iron and can cause leaks. Do not use distilled water, as it is too pure and will not produce much if any steam.

Brown water spitting out of bosch steam iron


Hi,


Brown water and white scale are often the result of the water you use in the iron...

If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that...

For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water,

and then use the bottled water instead...

I have a Rowenta DG-980 steam generator. It spits little grains of something when I use my iron. It doesn't hurt my clothing, but I have to brush the stuff off my clothes when I am finished ironing them. I...


Hi, Rowenta recommends that you use clear filtered drinking or bottled water only. I believe them because the system uses brass & aluminum throughout, so salts or acids would cause corrosion. To clean the system totally, after each ironing session before I put it away, I remove the blue reservoir completely, and run the burst of steam several times until the boiler is empty, and red light indicates it is out of water. I shut the power off and unplug. Wait at least an hour or so, access the boiler tank plug on side & if it is cool to the touch, remove it using a coin (quarter), drain and flush the tank several times with the cleaning tube that came with unit or filtered/drinking bottled water several times over the kitchen sink. Finally, drain all the water completely out of the boiler (I leave the plug & cover off to making sure it is completely dry before putting everything back together, ready for the next time). After several use cycles of the above should clear out the debris. My 1st experience with a used DG980 had exactly the same problem. P.S. before ironing the first article, use several bursts of steam away from the ironing board surface to clear out any standing water that was is in the system. Hope this helps :O)
