Sticky substance on iron plate


get some of the Rowenta remover, YOu put it on your sole plate when Iron is warm. I use an old facecloth, put some on the cloth, then drag the iron side ways or back and forth. Then a clean towel to clean, when it does nto remove, i put some directly on the iron, does a pretty great job.. keep up with the stuff. If you are using fusible things when you Iron, you set yourself up with sggrivation, but a teflon cloth from a quilt store or on line,.It is used for applique and works great.

I have a rowenta iron, and began to iron a tablecloth with gold embossing. Now it is stuck on the plate. How do I clean it?


Turn the iron back on, get a sheet of wax paper, iron back and forth on the wax paper it cleans all of the gold and grime off. Then take a Magic Eraser and clean the plate after it has cooled. Won't scratch your plate. Hope this works for you. I have done it often.

Need to know how to clean a rowenta iron plate


As long as it's not a coated surface - plain steel - get 0000 steelwool to rub it with. It will take some elbow grease but it will work to clean and (almost) polish the surface.

Iron leaks water from the back end of the base


This problem is the way that rowenta seals the water tank. If the iron is disassembled and the seal is properly put on it will not leak,, however this seal is a silicone based product and not just an off the shelf gasket. I have sealed and repaired some using a high temp silicone

BRown water and stuff coming out of iron


Hi, two problems:

DIA' s problem - the brown water is due to poor water quality and debris in the boiler and iron sytem. Rowenta is clear that they do not want anyone to cleaning solutions - only clear filtered drinking water to rinse out the boiler (via the water inlet screw hole) and I have found running the system dry, letting it cool, rinsing and draining the boiler several times before putting unit away works fine.

Guest' problem with brown/black tar substance is likely caused by too hot and iron setting (steam setting may also be too high) for ironing man-made synthetics (like Nylon, Rayon, Polyester or blends are basically petroleum based fabrics) that breakdown or melt, leaving deposits on the iron's stainless steel soleplate. A secondary cause could be bad water or debris in the boiler/iron in which the solution for DIA's problem might provide relief. Cleaning the soleplate is tricky, I use nothing stronger than an old fashioned wooden orange stick to gently scrap of all traces of the "stuff" and dry "Dutch" cleanser w/ a terry cloth or old cotton sock to polish without scratching the soft stainless soleplate...
