You can't heat wax it just melts and gose deeper in to the pyle and backing
Try dry scrapeing with a regular dinner knife nothing to sharp and vac and scrape vac .
You won't get all of it out of the backing but the rug should look the same as before the spill

SOURCE: why does my Tefal Pro express stain my ironing

Its a real pain, but use only distilled water.

Fill your iron with white vinegar and let it steam until empty.. face down on a towel on lowest steam setting.

SOURCE: It leaks water when I iron

Hello :

1:Clean your steam iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Your iron is more likely to leak when it has not been cleaned properly. Plus, the water that leaks from a steam iron that hasn't been cleaned will likely be dirty and stain your fabric. Every steam iron brand is different, so be sure to check the manual that came with your iron or browse the manufacturer's website for instructions on keeping your steam iron in good working order.

2:Use your steam iron on a rigid surface like an ironing board. In a rush, you might be tempted to quickly iron a blouse or pants on the nearest available surface like a bed, carpet or even on a table with a towel draped over it. However, these surfaces may not provide the proper amount of level padding for successful steam ironing, and leaks are more likely to occur. Take the time to set up your ironing board for smooth steam ironing to reduce water leaks on a bumpy surface.

3:Allow your steam iron to heat fully in the upright position before ironing. Because your steam iron is designed to convert water into steam that will easily smooth out wrinkles on bulky fabrics, you can avoid leaks by ensuring your iron has time to get the water to the correct temperature. If you lay your steam iron in the horizontal position too quickly, water that is not hot enough to convert to steam will leak. Give the iron a chance to heat up, and then test your steam function on your ironing board cover or spare fabric swatch before tacking your favorite blouse.

4:Turn off the steam function on your iron when ironing at lower temperatures. Since your iron's steam function is designed to convert the water in your iron to steam at the right temperature, lower iron temperatures can cause water to leak if your steam setting is still activated. For ironing more delicate fabrics, turn off the steam to avoid water leaks.

The base of our Sunbeam Pro Steam iron has become very stained and we want to clean it. What do we use?


To clean the base (soleplate) first, make sure your iron is completely cool before cleaning.
There are a number of things to remove various stains. For general stains rub the bottom of the iron with table salt and a soft damp cloth. For marks left by limescale (a powderey white) use undiluted white vinegar on a soft cloth. Some stubborn stains can be removed with a paste made from baking soda and water. What ever you use make sure you rinse and wipe the soleplate dry before using again. Never under any circumstances use a metal scouring pad or wire wool type cleaner, this will scratch, mark, and probably damage the soleplate beyond repair.

Cannot get black stains off with the cleaner kit from Rowenta that I bough at Bed Bath and Beyond. Used almost all of the cream and still not clean. adjina39@aol.com


Are you heating up the soleplate first to get it really hot, then put on an oven mitt to protect your hand, squirt cream onto a folded pad of clean cotton fabric, then apply to iron sole plate, rub over stained area gently, wait, then rub off. you may want to rub the whole iron sole onto a piece of waste fabric to remove the burnt bits. Itcan take a couple of goes to clean. The ironing press cleaning sticks work well too.

I get lots of brown stained clothes when i use my tefal steam generator iron have tried to de-scale it using the hose and then using 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water and it still keeps happening anyone...


Ok. sounds like you have lots of iron( Fe) in your water. You must always use only distilled water in the unit or you will get stains and eventual failure of the unit. The other possibility is contamination of the ironing surface or ironing spray product. 250 Pounds is the most expensive iron I have ever heard of outside of a commercial model,so it would certainly be worth taking to a shop for checking if nothing else works. I wish you good fortune, farmerbear at FixYa.com

Try a "magic eraser". They're minimally abrasive. Then run the iron over a piece of waxed paper and then on a cotton cloth or rag.

Cleaning Ironing Steam Press


If it is not teflon coated sand it of with 400 grit sand paper. sand from front to back and it will create a nice grain and
this paper is so fine it will not scratch the surface. Sand it gently until the substance is completely gone. Do not do
this if it is teflon coated. Hope this helps you.
