Question about Rowenta Perfect Iron
I thought that I had the right temperature for my syntheic tank. Well, when I touched the iron to the fabric the tank melted. How do I get the brown stuff off the bottom?
Wad up a large piece of wax paper, turn off your steam and "iron" the ball of wax paper. The gunk comes right off the iron and sticks to the wax paper.

Rowenta does sell a soleplate cleaner kit. But if you must do it yourself, I use nothing but Q-tips, a wooden orange/popsicle stick to genly scrape the tough brown stuff...and finish it off with "Dutch" cleanser, and old cotton sock, either dry or with a tiny bit of filtered drinking water. Do not use anything stronger, as the soleplate can be easily scratched.

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.
