Question about Rowenta Perfect Iron
Hi! I have a Rowenta Perfect iron, model number DX9800. I have had it for 1 1/2 years now. I have mold growing in the water reservoir and would like to know how to clean it or take it apart and remove the mold. I have only used tap water and have been using the same water in a number of different irons for 14 years now. Thank you for the help! My email is Brendanmhn@yahoo.com. Thanks a lot!
Run a couple of cycles of white vinegar through the iron allowing it to steam out. The odor may not be the most pleasant but it will clean out the mold as well as any build up that accumulates on the elements. Make sure you run two more cycles of just plain water through the iron on some scrap fablic or an old towel as any of the loose debris will come through the steam holes. After doing this you will find that it runs smoother than ever!

First with the iron cold fill the reservoir with white vinegar. I would let this sit for a few hours and then pour the vinegar out of the iron. I would do this a couple of times until you see the mold is removed from reservoir. Next fill again with vinegar and run the iron on the steam setting, steaming a clean rag or towel until all of the vinegar is steamed out of the reservoir. The vinegar will also remove any mineral deposits built up in the iron.
Next rinse the reservoir by filling it with water and emptying it completely a few times. Follow this by filling it completely with water again and setting the iron to steam setting. Use another clean rag or towel and steam it until all of the water has been steamed out of the reservoir.
In the future make sure to completely empty your iron after every use to prevent mineral build up and mold growth
