Question about Rowenta DX6700 Iron
THIS IS MY SECOND ROWENTA IRON IN FOUR YEARS, I LOVE IT BUT IT DOESN'T LAST. THE CALCIUM BUILDUP IS HORRIBLE. TRIED CLEANING IT WITH THE BLAST OF STEAM BUT IT'S STILL COMING OFF ON MY CLOTHES...WHAT SHOULD I DO
Hi, the other two responders were correct, use clear or filtered drinking water only. Also, use your iron until it runs dry and use burst of steam or self cleaning function to clear out the last bits of water, being sure it is empty before putting it away. Several cycles of this using and purging process will clean the iron without chemicals. Standing water that evaporates is just like a tea kettle with water left in it, all the white mineral deposits settle to the bottom, and the water dissolves the mineral salts, and when dissimilar metals are wet (think of a an old flashlight battery and the corrosion that occurs if left in storage.

If you are using tap water to fill your iron may I suggest buying a gallon of distilled water just for use in your iron. Here in Miami, Florida the water is very hard. My wife has owned 2 Rowenta irons in the last 10 years and hard water buildup has not been a problem. The only problem I see is the poor durability of the power cord. I am confident you will extend the life of any iron if you use distilled water.
