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.

How to clean SI 588


To clean the base (soleplate) first, make sure your iron is completely cool before cleaning.
There are a number of things to remove various stains. For general stains rub the bottom of the iron with table salt and a soft damp cloth. For marks left by limescale (a powderey white) use undiluted white vinegar on a soft cloth. Some stubborn stains can be removed with a paste made from baking soda and water. What ever you use make sure you rinse and wipe the soleplate dry before using again. Never under any circumstances use a metal scouring pad or wire wool type cleaner, this will scratch, mark, and probably damage the soleplate beyond repair.

Swan steam iron 2200w


To descale make a solution of 3 parts distilled water to one part white vinegar, about a teacup full and pour into the irons water reservoir. Switch the iron on and set it on to the highest steam setting. Place a clean tea towel or similar on the ironing board and steam-clean it with the iron for a few minutes. The vinegar/distilled water solution will break down and expel the lime scale. Turn off the iron (unplug). Pour out the water and vinegar solution. Pour clean distilled water into the iron reservoir and steam-clean a new clean cloth for a few minutes. this will remove any residual vinegar etc. Turn off and unplug the iron and pour out the remaining water. Descale completed.

Shoots out through the steam vents and sains clothing


The symptoms you describe are indicative of mineral buildup in your iron. The instructions probably say to use distilled water in the iron and may include a procedure for removing mineral deposits
