Question about Homedics PS-200 Iron with Auto Shut-off
There are a few products that will remove mineral buildup.
Vinegar - slow but it works. Let it sit overnight if filling a reservoir.
If it's on a surface saturate layers of paper toweling with vinegar and place on the surface and let it sit overnight. You may need multiple applications depending on the buildup.
Any 'De-Liming' product (containing Hydrochloric Acid) - Faster, but can discolor metal surfaces if left on too long. Wear plastic gloves when working with these products. If filling a reservoir you may want to dilute it with water (50/50) and leave for an hour. You can make a stronger dilution and/or use it full strength, but be careful... De-Liming Acids foam when they hit lime buildup, so be sure to keep the surrounding area protected or do it in a sink.
Keep in mind it will discolor metal so be careful if putting it in a stainless steel sink. Always rinse and flush with clear, cold water immediately after cleaning. Vinegar is the safe way, but takes time and multiple applications :)

If the iron heats but steams improperly, inspect the soleplate and clean the vents (see below) and flush sediment out of the steam chamber .
If the iron produces too much or too little heat, test the electrical cord . Also test and, if needed, adjust calibration of the thermostat .
If the iron does not spray properly, inspect and clean the nozzle.
If the iron leaks or spits, clean the steam vents, nozzle, and tank.
If the iron sticks to fabric, clean or repair the soleplate. If the iron stains fabric, clean the soleplate, clean the tank with a commercial cleaner, and use distilled or filtered water.
