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...

We have Rowenta DM 890 steam iron. It dumps water. Also Why not use distilled water?


The following web blog about Rowenta steam irons has some tips on maintaining the iron:
http://www.nasa1.org/iron%20rowenta.htm
The following web blog explains the issue of not using distilled water:
http://ths.gardenweb.com/forums/load/laundry/msg011421358265.html
I guess the bottom line is that it takes a higher temperature for distilled water to boil. It also explains that will cause the unit to spit, drip, and leak.
Try affordable spring water, and you should get better results.

Iron spits out rusty water. The iron is a Rowenta


Fill it with a mix of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Let it set for 30 minutes and steam it out for about 2 minutes. Unplug it and dump it. After it cools colpletely, fill it with water and steam it out. The rust is coming from your water supply, not the iron.

My iron is spitting water when i put steam on???


It is overfilled with water. There's right measure for
your iron. It is specified in your manual. If no manual,
just fill it halfway and set your thermoswitch at a little
over half also.

A pint of white vinigar in the reservoir and steam it thro will clean it up a treat. Steam some clean water through afterwards before using it on your clothes. Best Wishes Rick
