I have always used distilled water in my iron and never had any plugging or rust problems.
At about $1.00 per gallon at most supermarkets, it's worth the investment.

My steam glide russell hobs iron pours out water when used I have burnt my self a few time. It also leave the garment very wet.


Many persons put too much water in a steam iron.
Make sure that you do not fill it all the way to the brim.
Try using less water in the tank.
This may also solve your wetness problem.

Build up of deposits when steam iron is used, how do you get iron apart ?


You might be able to clean out your steam iron by putting vinegar in instead of water. It has worked on my steam iron as well as my coffee pot.

Forgot what kind of water to use - distilled or other wise can not find manual, can I get one - Model GS7RW Thanks, Susan


hi.

i am assuming it is the GS7RW garment steamer and not actually a vacuum cleaner.

any electrical item with a heating element should be used with distilled or de-ionised water.
if you live in a "hard water" area where the water contains dissolved calcuim salts, these will cause scaling and furring up of the heater element. easiest way to tell is to look inside your kettle. if there are white deposits on the base or heating element, your steamer will get the same deposits and work less effectively.

another option is to use the scented ironing waters available from many supermarkets for use in steam irons. these will not harm your steamer, and will also make your clothes smell nice as they come in a range of scents.

this link does have some instructions that may help.

How do I get the white stuff out of my iron? It appears to be some kind of mineral deposit and I can't find my owners manual to help me.


hi.

the white stuff is a mineral deposit from using hard water.
any proprietary descaling solution should remove this.
if you then use any of the scented ironing waters available from the supermarket, the scale will not return.

How do i descale a SWAN iron model no S15030N. CAN I PUT DESCALER INTO WATER STORAGE TANK


The best and cheapest way to descale irons,steamers, etc. is to use white vinegar, mixed 1 cup to a quart of water. Pour in the iron and allow to steam. The vinegar will dissolve the calcium, which is the blocking scale. Do this a few times toensure that the holes are clear and operating correctly. For the last rinse, put a little lemon into plain water and allow to steam. This gets rid of any vinegar smell.

Somewhat new_ leaking dark water on white shirt- washed then repeated


I stopped vacuuming my shirts ages ago, and mostly everyone else did, so I assume you're talking about an iron?

The dark water is just tap water that was sitting inside the iron and caused it to rust.

After you rinse the iron several times with distilled water, keep using distilled water from now on.
It's about $1.00 per gallon and you can buy it in any supermarket.
When you use distilled water in your iron, there is no need to empty it every time you're done with the weekly ironing.

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?


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.

My Black & Decker F1050 steanm iron started spitting ugly brown water out today...HELP?


Hi Barb,
It sounds like you have rust buildup in your iron.

I would try cleaning it inside with a mixture of hot water, vinegar, and baking soda. Put the hot water and vinegar mix in first then add the baking soda. The bubbles do the work (scrubbing bubbles...). Then, rinse thoroughly.

Then, never put your iron away until completely dry inside. Let it heat until you're pretty sure it is dry. If you don't, the rust will come back real quickly.

Hope this helps. If you appreciate my response, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

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...
