Question about Euro-Pro Shark GI490 Iron
The brown residue is probably caused by iron in the water. I would suggest you put a solution of half vinegar and half water into the water chamber and leave in the iron overnight.
Then switch it on to steam and holding the iron over the sink or over an old towel, the dirt (residue) comes out of the holes on the soleplate. Sometimes if the iron is badly scaled you might need to repeat the descaling.
Once complete fill with water and steam away, to flush any of the remaining vinegar out of the iron.
Depending on how often you use your iron and how much iron is in your water, you might consider performing this flush process every 2 or 3 months. It will help extend the life of your iron.
