4 Continue ironing until all of the cleaning solution has steamed out. Repeat the cleaning process if necessary until the iron no longer oozes discolored liquid and the ironing surface is clean.
5 Fill the iron steamer receptacle with distilled water and set the appliance to steam.
6 Continue steaming until the smell of vinegar or CLR is gone.

There could be some dried fluid inside the tubes or medication chamber. Try cleaning the tubes really well even if they look clean and try cleaning the medication chamber with distilled water (better then tap water because it has been cleaned of all impurities), raise it out with warm distilled water (warm is better then cold to try to dislodge any dried medication), microwave the water to warm it up.
If that does not clean the medication chamber try boiling the medication chamber in a pot for 3 to 5 minutes in distilled water.
PS for the tubes use the warm distilled water.
