My iron is steaming out rust coloured water how can I clean it please


Having been asked this many times, I wrote it as a Tip to save me writing each time.

Tip & How-To about Irons
Cleaning a Laundry Iron

Get some CLR descaler and mix it to the directions. Turn the iron on and set it to steam. Turn the iron off and put the CLR into it. When it has cooled a little, sit it faceplate down in an oven proof dish. Leave it over night. The CLR will drip through and sit in the dish cleaning the inside, and the topside of the soleplate. The next day, fill with water and shake upside down to empty any remaining CLR and scale through the fill hole. Keep filling and shaking to empty until the water comes clean.

If you don't want to use CLR, you can use white vinegar undiluted.

Clean distilled


Use CLR or any other lime scale remover you can find. Pour out any water in the bottom chamber and put some CLR into it. leave it for 10 minutes to an hour. Run it to have some CLR so though any passages, then pour out any remaining CLR and replace with water again to wash out the CLR. When you are satisfied that the CLR is all rinsed and replaced with clean water, then it is safe to iron again. CLR can alway be put on a cloth and wipe the iron surface or any deposits.

Clean iron?


Hello tcant....
  • 1 Fill the iron's steam receptacle with white vinegar or CLR, a product used to clean coffee pots. CLR is available in department stores.

  • 2 Plug in and set the iron to its steam setting.
  • 3 Operate as usual. When the vinegar or CLR begins to steam, operate the iron as you would normally. Press it over an old, clean towel as the vinegar or CLR loosens sediment and dirt from the appliance.
  • 4 Continue ironing until all of the cleaning solution has steamed out. Repeat the cleaning process if necessary until the iron no longer oozes discolored liquid and the ironing surface is clean.
  • 5 Fill the iron steamer receptacle with distilled water and set the appliance to steam.
  • 6 Continue steaming until the smell of vinegar or CLR is gone.
  • 7 Prevent future mineral buildup by using distilled water for steam in your iron, rather than tap water. Joe. Thanks for choosing Fixya!

    What happens if I use CLR in my steam iron? I have an expensive European style iron which is no longer producing steam. I have bought an iron descaler/cleaner and have repeated its use. I tried the...


    The steam tank may not be heating because of mineral deposits in the tank. But also do this check first. Open up the tank reservoir cold, and drain all water out, (is it clean inside there when you shine flashlight in there? Rinse with clear filtered water only (low minerals).

    Do not use CLR or anything agressive in there. You should have the main unit in full steam mode and the iron control also in full steam mode. Leave one tablespoon of water in the tank, put back together and let the pressure build. Put a clean towel on your ironing board and when iron is at full pressure and heat, hit the burst of steam and look at what comes out of the sole plate. If you see lots of white deposits look at the sole plate and see if the white chunks are coming out steam holes.

    When using iron, run it till steam/water tanks are dry, the burst of steam is used in this case to clean the iron of all standing water. Pull the reservoir and allow to cool...once tank is cool drain it as well. Doing this several times should help purge unit of the heavy mineral deposits.

    LIMESCALE BUILD UP


    To prevent lime build-up, use distilled water instead of tap water. I buy bottles of distilled water for use in my irons and steamers and have never gotten calcium or lime build-ups.
    You can buy a product by the name of CLR (stands for Calcium, Lime & Rust) which can be found at stores such as Target, Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, etc.) to wipe the build-up from your iron. You can also run this solution through your iron to clean the build-up from the inside.

    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
