I have owned a Pro Glide Plus for years and use a product called Iron-off by Dritz to clean the sole. It is a tube of cleaner that you heat your iron and use a soft cloth to apply the cleaner. Make sure you have the cloth well padded so you do not get burned by steam. It can smell a little so be in a well vented area. This product has worked for me for years and I highly recommend it.

How can I clean the plate of my Oliso pro. It has wonder under on it


get the iron hot. Take a piece of fabric and a dryer sheet. Put the dryer sheet between two layers of fabric. Place this at the edge of your ironing board. With the iron hot, run the sole place over the "fabric/dryer sheet set" several times. This will remove wonder under and many other adhesives from your iron.

How to clean a non-stick sole plate iron


I had this iron, and have since gotten rid of it. I cleaned the iron by running it with a solution of vinegar and water, about 1/2 and 1/2. Ran the steam until the solution was empty, and cleaned the nozzles with a q-tip at the same time. It worked temporarily.

I had to empty water out of iron and clean surface to get the marks to stop. After putting new water I let the iron heat up and ran it over and over on a white sheet until marks were gone. Maybe that will help you.

How to repair aan electrical iron


Hi,

If the iron doesn't heat, make sure power is on to the outlet, check the electrical chord, and check the thermostat and replace if necessary.

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical chord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat.
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the sole plate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the sole plate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.

The tools you will need are

  • Screwdrivers
  • Toothpicks or pipe cleaners
  • Sewing needle
  • Commercial electric iron cleaning solution or vinegar and water
  • Commercial sole plate cleaner or baking soda and water
  • Steel wool
  • Emery cloth
Please rate my solution.

Iron leaking and plate dirty


If you have hard water, there will be a buildup of minerals where the rubber gasket on the water tank meets the steam chamber that is built into the sole plate. This will make the rubber gasket surface become hard and no longer seak to the team chamber, resulting in water leaking from the tank onto the outside of the iron.

If you are reasonably skilled with tools and have a Torx T20 driver, you can disassemble the iron and remove the rubber gasket between the tank and the steam chamber and soak it in vinegar to remove the mineral scale. First remove the three Torx screws visible at the rear of the iron and gently pry off the gray rear cover plate. This will expose two screws holding the rear end of the sole plate. Remove those two screws. Then gently pry off the stainless steel nose piece on the front of the iron; this is the curved piece that says "high precision" on it. This will then expose the screw that holds the front of the sole plate on the handle. Remove thqt screw. Pull the black connector at the rear of the iron off the two rods to which it is attached, and you can move the sole plate away from the handle. The rubber piece in the handle that is sort of oval shaped and about 2 inches long is the gasket that is probably causing the leak. Gently remove it and soak it in vinegar to remove the scale, and remove the scle from the round hole where it meets the steam chamber in the sole plate. .When they are clean, reassemble the gasket onto the handle and the sole plate onto the handle, connecting the electrical connections, and replace the screws, It is not simple, but it is doable.

How do you clean glide plate


IF its a ceramic non stick plate then the best way is to just to apply washing up liquid on a soft sponge to get dirt off. If the dirt is heavier try bicarbonate of soda and some lemon juice.
This works both with ceramic/non stick plates and stainless steel plates.
