SOURCE: 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.

Cleaning a Steam Iron Soleplate

During the day to day use of a steam iron there can be normal buildup accumulate on the soleplate of the iron. Other things such as melted synthetic fibers, iron-on trims, and fusibles can also buildup on the sole plate of the iron. These can be removed with the use of a quality hot soleplate cleaner. Soleplate Cleaning Kits can be purchased from many service centers or can be found online by doing a search for “soleplate cleaning kit”.

If you have had the misfortune of getting melted plastic on the soleplate of your iron, you can remove that by taking a piece of Aluminum foil and sprinkling it with salt. Then take the hot iron and work it back and forth over the salt to break up the plastic and remove it from the bottom of the iron.

Avoid starches and be careful of synthetic materials. Also avoid zippers and buttons that can scratch the bottom of your iron.

Do not use the soleplate cleaners on your iron if it has a non-stick surface. With the non-stick surface you should not need the cleaning anyway. These surfaces can be damaged easily by anything abrasive. Do not use abrasive cleaners on any soleplate. Use the soleplate cleaning kit.

The holes in the bottom of our iron can be cleaned by using a pipe cleaner of a Q-tip.
Simply make sure the bottom is cool and then insert the pipe cleaner or Q-tip into the holes one by one and circle them around inside to clean out the hole.

If your iron has a “self clean” feature, do not over use it. It is recommended that you use it at least once per year, but not more then once per month.

My non stick sole plate on my Sunbeam iron is discolored with a rusty looking color that's coming off on my clothes. I keep it clean as can be, never leaving water in it,but this rusty looking dried on...

The discoloration is from a reaction of your water and the shield. The best way to avoid this is to use distilled water rather than tap water or use a water filter. I have had this problem at home as well (i have well water) and using a filter "fixed" the problem for me. Hopefully this will resolve the problem for you as well.

Please let us know if you still have the problem and we'll look for other alternatives.

How to repair aan electrical iron


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.

Cleaning a steam iron - it has a black mark, which will not come off. i need to know how the mark can be cleared.

The soleplate can be cleaned using warm water and washing-up liquid on a plastic scouring pad suitable for non-stick coatings. For stubborn stains, use Hi Speed found in your local supermarket in the laundry isle.

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.

Residue on iron plate

They sell cleaner for this. Or just use very fine steel wool #000 or #0000. Only use on a stainless steel iron, not one that has non-stick coating.
