It will not steam. We put in a solution of vinegar and 2 parts water from a pitcher that filters water. Will this be considered distilled water or is distilled water critical?


Distilled water and filtered water are not the same. Distilled water is water that has been boiled then condensed so that most of the impurities that cause water hardness (Sodium, Calcium, etc.) have been removed. Filtering does not remove these which is why your iron will clog up much quicker. Same applies to your car battery, distilled water only! To clean it mix "Lime Away" with water about 1/4 cup with water every 6 months or so, then rinse with clean water a few times to get rid of the green color, steam until it comes out clear again..

All of a sudden the amounts of water coming through when brewing have shrunk to about half the amount per cup. We only use bottled water.


Bottled water is rather ambiguous. "Natural spring water" is often rather high in minerals, and often, so is "purified drinking water". I use a CPAP (breathing) machine and I've gotten to learn about water...the hard way. I got some "Great Value" distilled water from Walmart. Of course this may vary by where you live, but the "distilled" water says that the source is the Plymouth, MI municipal water supply (I.e. city water), and it is treated by "micro filtration and reverse osmosis". Ok, the water is exceptionally clean, but it is NOT distilled! The ONLY way you can make distilled water - or distilled spirits or distilled anything - is to boil it until it vaporizes (in the case of water it becomes steam) then to cool, or condense it back into a liquid. In the case of water this is called "steam distilled".

Unless you have used only steam distilled water you may have mineral deposits. I haven't tried it personally, but I understand that a mixture of white vinegar and water will do wonders to clean out nineral deposits, and it may be worth a try. Otherwise you may need to disassemble and clean it.

How to clean siemen extreme power iron


A solution of white vinegar and water is a good cleaner for irons. Steam irons get clogged with mineral deposits, and vinegar works well to dissolve those deposits. Make a 50/50 solution of the vinegar and water and pour it in the iron, and place the iron on steam, allowing the solution to work thru the iron. You may have to do the cleaning a few times, depending on how clogged the iron is.

For future reference, use distilled water in the iron, because distilled water does not contain any significant amount of minerals. Distilled water can be found in the supermarket in one gallon jugs.

What is a water distiller?


A water distiller is a device that removes most impurities from water, through distillation. Distillation means boiling the water and then collecting the condensed steam into a clean container.

Must I use distilled water?


Yes, it is ALWAYS best to use distilled water in any iron, no matter what a specific manufacturer may, or may not, say. The reason is simple: There's nothing in distilled water to contaminate your iron, and as a result, you will not have stained clothes.

If your iron is already dirty from using tap water... clean with mixture of vinegar and water by pouring mixture into iron, bring to full temp for a few mins, flush through steam vents, and rinse with distilled water. You may need to invert your iron to purge the water from tank as well. Repeat as many times as needed until perfectly clean.

Once clean, NEVER use any other type of water in you iron. Period. Always use distilled water. Hope this helps...

Can I use distilled water to brew beer? I dont like drinking the water where I live so I usually use distilled water but was not sure if it would work with beer.


I wouldn't brew beer with distilled water. It doesn't contain all the minerals you need for a good taste in beer. You could always use bottled water.

Euro steam evolution iron model 6399


I just got my iron and got into an immediate argument with my husband when I read the manuel, which said "made to use tap water"....."NEVER USE 100% DISTILLED WATER". I was about to return it when I decided to call the customer service number and lo and behold, my husband is right! I\'ll never live that one down. The person on the phone said they\'d been trying to get the manufacturer to change that in the manuals for a long time. I\'m really annoyed - but you do need to use distilled water in this iron. I\'m still thinking about returning it just because of the argument.

How do I clean my humidifier Holmes hm 500? I don't have the manual anymore. Thank you! Jaimee Murphy


If you are trying to descale it of all the mineral build up. The easiest way is to mix a 50/50 1 gallon solution of Distilled White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water and pour it in the empty tank. Allow it to sit for a couple of hours (Longer if it's really scaled) . Then turn it ON and run it, until the tank is half empty. Then empty the remaining solution and fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run until it's empty. In the future, it's better to use Bottled Distilled Water, rather than tap water.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

My iron smells bad and transfers the smell to clothing. I have had my iron for 10 years and love it, but my housekeeper left water in it.


Hey, You have a "Mildew" issue. Just like leaving clothes in the washer too long before putting them into the dryer. If you read your iron's manual, it is recommended to use "Distilled" water...not tap water. Tap water has impurities...Distilled water does not. Here's the fix...MAKE SURE YOU ARE HOME WHEN YOU DO THIS! Get distilled water (From Grocery Store) Mix 1/2 cup distilled water with 1/2 cup vinegar. Put this into your iron and leave it on. To help it along, push the "Steam" button frequently. You can do this several times...the acid in the vinegar will clean out the residue. Once this is done, fill the iron with water, add a couple of drops of lemon juice and you'll be good to go. I know this to be fact...just did it myself : )

Brown bits are seeping out the steam buttons. how do I clean it....and where can I find the manual?


Try filling the iron with white vinegar and letting it soak overnight, drain, fill again with vinegar for another night, drain and rinse. The brown bits are iron oxide, calcium carbonate, manganese, magnesium, and other trace minerals which are good for you but bad for your iron, and that are found in tap water. You are better off using only distilled water in your iron, which is available in gallon jugs at the grocery store. Distilling removes all of the minerals, which is why it is nearly tasteless. Your post didn't specify what make and model iron, so I can't help you on locating a manual. Depending on how expensive it was, you might want to just toss the old iron and start from scratch with a new one using distilled water only.
