Spray Starch sticking bottom of iron leaving black residue

I use Magic Spray Starch and it collects on the bottom of my new Rowenta iron each time I use it . Then I get black marks all over my newly ironed clothes! Should I never use starch with a Rowenta steam iron?

The bottom of my rowenta focus has a burnt grainy film on it. How do I clean it and prevent it from happening again. I've only used it approx 4 times but it is over a year old.


Rowenta FOCUS STEAM IRON DZ5164 DZ5164U1 user manuals
will give their specific instructions.

Rowenta has a kit, including a paste cleaner for iron soleplates, available from Amazon.

Home made cleaners include a paste of baking soda and vinegar. Rub on, let sit, and wipe with a wet cloth. (Some add a drop or two of dawn dishwashing liquid)

Another home made cleaner is the Mr. Clean Magic eraser, thoroughly wet, and rubbed over the soleplate.

Make sure to wipe the soleplate with a clean wet cloth at the end to remove cleaning residue.

Clean your iron's soleplate while the iron is cold, and don't use something scratchy like a steel wool pad, to avoid scratching the surface.

Is there any cleaning solution to use on the iron plate to clean it?


Yes there is a paste you use on a hot/warm iron and it cleans the sole plate well. Wal Mart has some in the laundry section where they have the spray starch. It's a little 3" tube on a card.

The rocker button to enable steam to flow seems stuck. It will not rock.


The stem rod for the steam control is choke or faulty. These prevent the water going onto the sole plate that why no steam.It is possible that there is dirt that has accumulated into the stem of the steam button and is sticking the button. It is better to remove the lid and make a good cleaning to free the movement. use good spray of jet air, use WD40 to remove dirt and free.---------------- Pull the button up. You may have to coax it up; You can pry it back to the up position with a needle. Grasp it firmly and pull it straight off (it is fitted in place by friction only). Below the button is a stem that operates the valve, gently full it back up with a pair of needle nose pliers (careful - the stem is plastic). Replace the button (align the stem into the hole on the bottom of the button. Cycle the button a few times with water in the reservoir.It seems like it sticks when the iron is left unused for a period of time; or the dirt get collected under the button.As if the valve sticks when dry. You can leave some water in it when not in use. --------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

How to cean bottom plate with spray starch on it


Rowenta has a cleaning kit found where the irons are displayed.

Faultless Hot Iron Cleaner can be found in the laundry area.

Dritz Iron-Off is with sewing notions.

You can also use a damp cloth dipped in baking soda, but the above listed cleaners will work faster and better.

I want an iron that really gets hot tthe one i have you have to


Have you tried ironing whilst the item is damp?

I do that with 100% cotton shirts and it works much better (hottest setting). Damp down with spray or just take it off the line before fully dry.

I can't use spray starch/ironing aid as husband is allergic.

BRown water and stuff coming out of iron


Hi, two problems:

DIA' s problem - the brown water is due to poor water quality and debris in the boiler and iron sytem. Rowenta is clear that they do not want anyone to cleaning solutions - only clear filtered drinking water to rinse out the boiler (via the water inlet screw hole) and I have found running the system dry, letting it cool, rinsing and draining the boiler several times before putting unit away works fine.

Guest' problem with brown/black tar substance is likely caused by too hot and iron setting (steam setting may also be too high) for ironing man-made synthetics (like Nylon, Rayon, Polyester or blends are basically petroleum based fabrics) that breakdown or melt, leaving deposits on the iron's stainless steel soleplate. A secondary cause could be bad water or debris in the boiler/iron in which the solution for DIA's problem might provide relief. Cleaning the soleplate is tricky, I use nothing stronger than an old fashioned wooden orange stick to gently scrap of all traces of the "stuff" and dry "Dutch" cleanser w/ a terry cloth or old cotton sock to polish without scratching the soft stainless soleplate...

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.
