Most heating plates on steam presses are teflon coated. I have used 409 to rub rust and other stains off the telfon coated heating plates before. Try that.
Also WD-40 works well with other stains. Don't ask me why, but WD-40 cleans some stuff really well.

If it is not teflon coated sand it of with 400 grit sand paper. sand from front to back and it will create a nice grain and
this paper is so fine it will not scratch the surface. Sand it gently until the substance is completely gone. Do not do
this if it is teflon coated. Hope this helps you.

I have found that vinegar and baking soda mixed does a great cleaning job on the base of my ironing press

I wonder if the hot iron cleaner would work. it's sold in a tube and you have the iron heated and then have some scrap material ready so it doesn't stain anything else.

I have an bosch sensixx b5 iron and the calc clean sign keeps flashing what can i do .i have lost theinstuctions


Here you have how to solve this issue. It has been obtained from the device's manual.
2. calc'n clean The "calc'n clean" function helps to remove scale particles from the steam dispenser. The iron includes a system to warn when the dispenser needs periodically cleaning. When the "calc 'n clean" symbol lights up on the navigation display the dispenser needs cleaning. Fill the water tank. Plug in the iron and select the temperature setting . After the necessary warm-up period, unplug the iron and hold it over a sink. Position the steam regulator to the "calc'n clean" position and keep it in this position. Gently shake the iron. Boiling water and steam will come out, removing any scale or deposits that might be there. When the iron stops dripping, position the regulator to the position. For improved descaling, heat up the iron again fully and press the steam button several times in quick succession. Then wait until the remaining water has evaporated from the soleplate of the iron. Once it has been cleaned, the cleaning warning must be cancelled on the navigation display. To do this, simply press and hold the on/set navigation key for more than 5 seconds, with the iron plugged in. If you do not do this, the cleaning icon will remain lit. 3. anti-calc The "anti-calc" cartridge has been designed to reduce the build-up of scale produced during steam ironing, helping to extend the useful life of your iron. Nevertheless the "anti-calc" cartridge cannot remove all of the scale that is produced naturally over time.

I use distilled water in my Roweta. When ironing a white shirt this morning, brown water came out and stained the shirt. What could have caused this and what can I do in the future to avoid this?


Hi,


Brown water and white scale 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...

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!

    It is sticky and looks like glue.It looks gooey


    Hello :

    Here I'm going to tell you the basics of cleaning your Rowenta iron :

    Things You'll Need:1:Rowenta Soleplate Cleaning Kit
    2: Ironing board
    3:Clean, dry cloth
    4:Two cotton terry cloths, such as washcloths

    Now to the cleaning :

    1:Pour out any water from the iron. Turn the steam iron on to the "Cotton" setting, which is the one with three dots on the settings dial.

    2:Cover an area of the ironing board with a clean, dry cloth. Fold one washcloth or other piece of cotton terry cloth in half and place it onto the cloth on the ironing board.

    3:Dispense a 2-inch long daub of cleaning solution onto the terry cloth. Run the heated iron over the cloth directly on the cleaning solution. Move the steam iron in a circular motion over the cleaner on the cloth for a minute or two.

    4:Remove the steam iron from the cloth. Carefully wipe any remaining cleaning solution from the soleplate using the second terry cloth.

    5:Add water to the steam iron. Turn on the "Steam" or "Burst of Steam" feature. Run the iron over the clean, dry cloth on the ironing board to ensure the cleaning product is entirely gone from the soleplate.

    Water drips out of steam holes


    I suspect that by placing it on its heel rest the water from the tank is not allowed to enter into the steam chamber and when you go into ironing mode there is a rush of water that is cooling down the sole plate to below steaming temperature. Try keeping it in the horizontal position on a heat proof pad and press the steam button just before going into ironing mode.
