Question about Irons
How do you stop brown spots from being deposited on clothing when using a steam iron? This iron uses only tap water. It is a Rowenta Steam Iron model DM560
You can mix 50% water with 50% vinager let it set in the iron overnight then turn it on and let the steam run out.What happens is the inside of the iron where the water is had corroded or rusted or has lime deposits.the vinager will break this loose overnight.also after you let the iron steam out all the mixture,flush the iron 4 to 5 times and start using fresh water from a store bought gallon.your tap water is probably full of iron.

Fill with 50/50 water vinegar solution. Get it good and hot and let it sit for two hours. Rinse and repeat if necessary. Buy a gallon of water from the market and use that from now on. This will fix your problem. The Iron is concentrating the iron in you water and this is what is causing the brown spots. Hope you find this helpful. If you do please take the time to rate it fixya and maybe I will keep helping people for free.
