I am assuming that you have scale or lime build up on your iron. Make a solution of half white vinegar and half distilled water. Pour it in the water container on your iron. Turn your iron on its highest setting and set for steam. Wait about 15 minutes and turn off the iron. When water cools pour off the remaining water/vinegar solution. Fill the iron with distilled water and turn on. Let it heat and then cool then pour off that solution. Do this till the poured off water runs clear. If you have scale on the bottom of the iron you can clean that with an old toothbrush dipped into warm white vinegar. There may be easier ways to do this but this is eco friendly and it works the best of anything I have tried.

I have a SIMAC steam iron that isn't performing well at the moment. I think it needs descaling as it is making a large whistling sound when I turn it on and it has heated up. Can someone tell me what...


To clean the reservoir of your iron, pour a solution that is one part vinegar to one part water in. Turn the iron on. Allow it to steam for about four minutes. Drain the iron for an hour, and be sure to repeat the process with clean water before you iron any clothing items.

I need instructions on how to clean Digital Advantage Iron. I have lost my manual.


any iron can be cleaned by running a little water and vinegar through it several times, it loosens the scale build up that gets in all irons over time, be sure and try to clean out the venting steam holes in the face of the iron, Once you do this, run clean clear water through it and you should be fine, if possible, always use bottled water (purified) water in irons

I have burned my nylon trousers with the iron, its left a terrible black burn fabric mark on my iron, how can i clean the iron?


Get some XXXX steel wool. That's the finest grade. Rub from TIP TO HEEL until the junk is off. DON'T rub sideways, the iron will snag when you use it. After you clean the soleplate, wipe it well and run a steam cycle to remove the dust from the ports.

Often when ironing, the iron{tefal aquaspeed 160] will spit dirty water on whatever I'm ironing.are you supposed to use botled water in iron?Aren't tefal irons made for tap water?Also how do you stop iron...


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.

How do i clean my iron so brown dirt won't come out of it when i iron


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...

How to clean sunbeam ultra 60 platinum iron. Can't find instruction booklet!!!!!


Do you mean the Sunbeam Ultura 60 Platinum iron? Wipe the exterior of the iron with a damp soft cloth and then dry the iron. To clean the steam valve, turn the Steam/Dry dial to Clean so that the tip pops up. Gently scrub the tip of the valve with a steel wool pad moistened with warm water. Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. Replace the valve and turn clockwise to lock into place (reset the dial to Dry when storing the iron). Clean the steam holes of any build up, use a cotton wool tip moistened with methylated spirits. The teflon plate should be cleaned with the damp soft cloth, just like the rest of the exterior of the iron. If you have ironed a polyester that melted onto the iron, then iron a damp cotton cloth when the iron is hot.

The manual for several Ultura irons, including the 60, is available here: http://www.sunbeam.com.au/Pages/Browse/ProductDetail.aspx?pid=1485 . The link for the manual is in the center of the page above the Image Gallery.

I hope this helps.

I was getting ready to iron a pair of pants that were polyesterrayon and 4% spandex. I thought I had my Rowenta iron turned down low enough but when I placed the iron on the pants they melted. Well...


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.

Theres water pouring out of my t fal iron's little holes when I begin to iron my shirt...why!


The iron needs to be cleaned as I have just discovered myself. I have a hinari and the instructions are as follows. Fill the water tank and turn the iron on to medium. When heated press the steam button and hold it over the sink or a container so that the water can run out of it. It will take sediments with it. The cleaning of the iron should be carried out once a month.

I experienced the same trouble and carried out the instructions and all is well again.
