SOURCE: irons will not heat properly

This may sound weird, but try them at someone else's house, it could be possible that your wiring is not allowing them the amperage they need to heat properly.

SOURCE: Iron puts out water which stains clothes. Steam is not dependable

Replace your iron. You can try cleaning the old one with either white or the stronger pickling vinegar, but for all the trouble that will be it is easier to just replace your iron. If future use ONLY distilled water, bought at any supermarket or water store, in your new iron.

I just melted my husbands shirt to my iron!!!!!!!!!! how do i clean this mess off of my iron???


Hi hahn rhonda...
Put your iron in the freezer and then use a scraper to scrap off the shirt when it is frozen.
If that does not work, the reheat your iron to the highest setting, after your iron is hot you can use an old cotton towel to iron backwards on to remove the shirt debris

Rust colored steam that stains clothing ironed


Hi, Brown water and whitescale are often the result of the water you use in the iron... If you have scale, white vinegar will clean that... For brown water, empty the iron, rinse out the insides with bottled water, and then use the bottled water instead...

I use distilled water in my Roweta. When ironing a white shirt this morning, brown water came out and stained the shirt. What could have caused this and what can I do in the future to avoid this?

Rowenta Effective


The rust spot are probably caused by iron in your tap water. I would suggest you put a solution of half vinegar and half water into the water chamber and leave in the iron overnight.

Then switch it on to steam and holding the iron over the sink or over an old towel, the dirt (residue) comes out of the holes on the soleplate. Sometimes if the iron is badly scaled you might need to repeat the descaling.

Once complete, fill again with clean water and steam away, to flush any of the remaining vinegar out of the iron.

Depending on how often you use your iron and how much iron is in your water, you might consider performing this flush process every 2 or 3 months. It will help extend the life of your iron.

Another option is to use distilled water in your iron. Distilled water has all the minerals removed.

Good Luck!

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.
