To prevent lime build-up, use distilled water instead of tap water. I buy bottles of distilled water for use in my irons and steamers and have never gotten calcium or lime build-ups.
You can buy a product by the name of CLR (stands for Calcium, Lime & Rust) which can be found at stores such as Target, Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, etc.) to wipe the build-up from your iron. You can also run this solution through your iron to clean the build-up from the inside.

Brown steam


Brown steam is normally associated with internal rust in the iron. descaling may help clean it up. To descale make a solution of 3 parts distilled water to one part white vinegar, about a teacup full and pour into the irons water reservoir. Switch the iron on and set it on to the highest steam setting. Place a clean tea towel or similar on the ironing board and steam-clean it with the iron for a few minutes. The vinegar/distilled water solution will break down and expel the limescale. Turn off the iron (unplug). Pour out the water and vinegar solution. Pour clean distilled water into the iron reservoir and steam-clean a new clean cloth for a few minutes. this will remove any risidual vinegar etc. Turn off and unplug the iron and pour out the remaining water.

How to clean lime scale out of iron tank


All you need for this is a cotton cloth and white vinegar, a small amount. And you have to rub with cotton cloth for the limescale. Vinegar will act and the limescale will disappear from here.

If it doesn't help you can mix the vinegar with baking soda and it will be a good start point.

When you have finished to polish and to clean the outside, you can clean your iron from inside. For this you have to put a small amount of vinegar and you have to mix it with water.

You have to switch it on to wait. And press the steam. All the limescale will come out of there.

You see? And your iron is shiny and clean, from inside and from outside as well. .

When using the steam it spits out sediment on the clothes. I have tried cleaning by holding the steam button.


This happens due to limescale and / or build ups of mineral deposits such as iron in the water. You will need to use a kettle descaling solution or an iron descaling solution available from most supermarkets or home appliiance stores and clean out the debris in the iron. It happens to most if not all irons and cleaning on a regular basis is the only answer or use very expensive 'iron water'
