First, UNPLUG THE IRON. DO THIS PART COLD. Clean the soleplate with scotch brite and WD-40. Next, you will have to remove the WD-40 residue from the soleplate with something like windex. Make sure you get around the steam holes.
Next-Plug it in and fill it with 50-50 mix of water and white vinegar. Set it for steam and let it run through. Refill it with plain water and steam it out again, until there is NO VINEGAR SMELL. This will clean the deposits out of the tank and steam vents.

SOURCE: I cannot find anywhere to
If you can't find it ever, you can use bottled drinking water. Don't use purified water it is so pure that it can be a little aggressive on some metals. Just use RO or drinking water from your local store.

SOURCE: shark iron; when you turn
If your having problem with your shark iron and it leaks drops of water while ironing, it might be the water holding tank has a crack. Here are some steps that you may apply to check what's causing the leak issue.
1. Check the water. If you put wrong water it will cause the iron to spit the water out. So try to use good spring water or bottled water. Also make sure that the iron is empty before storage.
2. Check the two front screws ( they are hidden ). The two screws are holding the tank to the base. Sometimes iron developed a crack caused by tightening the screws.
--> if the unit has crack, I will recommend to call the manufacturer if warranty is up to have it be repaired for free.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Try using CLR cleaner, if not just buy a new one, and keep the receipt for a return down the road, these iron's are reasonable nowadays.
