There are number of commercial cleaners available. CLR is one of them. You can also use 50% vinegar and 50% water.
Pour the mixture into the water chamber and let the iron sit overnight. Switch on the iron the next day and put it on steam. Hold the iron over the sink. The dirt will come out of the holes on the sole plate. If the iron is badly scaled you may need to repeat the process or use CLR following the instructions on the bottle.
Using distilled water in the iron will eliminate or reduce the need to de-scale the iron.

How do I clean my Black N Decker Advantage Iron


I work for Black & Decker customer service. Our number is 800-231-9786.

You can obtain a new manual for free by visiting www.useandcaremanuals.com. Below is the section from the manual on care and cleaning of your iron.

Care and Cleaning

This product contains no user serviceable parts. Refer
service to qualified service personnel.
It is not necessary to empty the water reservoir after each
use of the iron, if you iron frequently.
To empty the iron, hold the iron over the sink with the tip
pointing down. Water will stream out of the water fill
opening.

TO CLEAN THE OUTSIDE SURFACES

• Unplug and allow iron to cool completely. Wipe the
soleplate and outer surfaces with a soft cloth
dampened in water and a mild household detergent.
Never use abrasives, heavy duty cleansers, vinegar, or
scouring pads that may scratch or discolor the iron.

• After cleaning, iron with steam over an old cloth to
remove any residue from the steam vents.
ABOUT THE SELF-CLEANING SYSTEM

• Use the self-cleaning system to flush out minerals and
lint. If lint is allowed to accumulate in the vents, it can
scorch and cause brown spotting.
For Models D2000 and D2020: Clean about once a
month.
For Models D2010, D2030 and D2035: A "CLEAN"
indicator will appear in the digital display to notify you
when your iron needs cleaning (A).

• Fill the iron as described in "How to Use" but keep the
water level below the MAX line. Plug in the iron, set
the temperature to 6, and stand the iron on its heel
rest. Allow to heat about 3 minutes.

• Unplug the iron and take it to a sink. Holding it
horizontally over a sink, move and HOLD the variable
steam dial in the CLEAN position ( ). There may be
some hissing and spitting while self-cleaning. This is
normal.

• Stay clear of HOT steam and boiling water as it comes
out of the vents while lint, scale, and minerals flush
through! Continue to hold the variable steam dial in
the CLEAN position until all the water has emptied.
If necessary, rock the iron side to side and front to back
to empty it.

• When finished, release the variable steam dial, stand
the iron on its heel rest, and plug it in. Heat for about
2 minutes to dry out any remaining water then unplug.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
