How do I clean my iron? Sometimes my clothes get stained and water drips from the bottom. Please help.


Get some CLR descaler and mix it to the directions. Turn the iron on and set it to steam. Turn the iron off and put the CLR into it. When it has cooled a little, sit it faceplate down in an oven proof dish. Leave it over night. The CLR will drip through and sit in the dish cleaning the inside, and the topside of the soleplate. The next day, fill with water and shake upside down to empty any remaining CLR and scale through the fill hole. Keep filling and shaking to empty until the water comes clean.

If you don't want to use CLR, you can use white vinegar undiluted.

Steam stays on all the time


the valve is jammed

you live in england

so... take a calgon tab
and make up some boiling water

add the boiling water to fill the iron half way
now make up a paste with the calgon tab {a bit of like 1/8th}

add this paste to the water chanel of the iron
and then using a fresh boiling water
water it in
to fill the iron
let it sit for two mins
then exercise the valves for steam and water
and tip the iron front and back
let it sit a further 2 mins
NOW
plug in the iron and set it cotton number 1 {40deg usually}
let it sit and hiss
and steam it thru again exercise the valves
youll also need to make sure the holes on the base of it are clear

you can also leave the botton of the iron in a small tray of a calgon tab

this disolves all the lime scale and will bring perhaps
a sad iron or etc back to life again

after a good rinse thru reuse this treatment every few months

hey i live in glasgow so unlike the limes our water is pure gold

no lime ...

I have lost my instructions on how to "self clean"


Straight from the manual:
http://www.applianceinsider.com/storage/user-manuals/rowenta/user-manual/DX8000.pdf

Fill the iron with tap water to the max mark on the water tank.
Be sure that variable steam lever is set to minimum.
Stand iron on heel and plug in. • Set thermostat to ••• setting.
Once heated, unplug iron.
Hold iron horizontally over the sink with the soleplate pointing away from body.
Move the variable steam lever completely to the right and hold in the self clean position for one minute.



Warning: Doing this will cause steam and hot water to be ejected from the soleplate. Take all proper precautions and hold iron away from body.
• Move the iron gently back and forth and side to side until all water has run through plate.
• Carefully wipe all water and material from the soleplate with an old towel, as the water and minerals can stain the soleplate (although this has no effect on glide or performance.)
Warning: Iron and soleplate may still be very hot. Exercise care while wiping.
• Place iron on heel and leave to cool. Before using iron after self cleaning, test steam and burst
of steam on an old towel or cloth than can be discarded.

How do i descale it


Fill the tank with regular malt vinegar and leave it overnight, Was out in the morning and should have removed most of the scale. Then mix two parts vinegar and one part water and fill the tank again. Heat the iron up to max setting and steam through to remove any small deposits in the steam holes. Repeat if needed.

4268 iron leaving residue


This will probably just need de-scaling. Buy some descaler and there should be instructions on the packet of how to de-scale an iron. Usually by warming the iron slightly, switching off, emptying out the water and then adding the diluted de-scaler to the iron and leaving it in an almost horizontal but raised position in a bowl or something so that some of the de-scaler will drain through. Then emptying out, re-filling with water and then iron something that you don't mind getting marked while any residue get's flushed out.

How to put water in the Tefal pro 2500


This type of iron is called a steam station iron.
The box is the water tank and it is this that you need to fill with water. You should be able to find a small spout on the water tank in order to fill it. These irons produce a huge amount of steam and should make the ironing a breeze once you get used to it.

Rowenta Effective


The rust spot are probably caused by iron in your tap 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 again with clean 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.

Another option is to use distilled water in your iron. Distilled water has all the minerals removed.

Good Luck!

Philips Azure self-cleaning steam iron


philips do not have a manual for this iron online, sorry contact them if you want; http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?sct=IR_STEAMIRONS_SU&cat=HOP_IRONS_CA&grp=HOUSEHOLD_PRODUCTS_GR&session=20070313063306_83.37.63.254&ctn=HI296/54&slg=ENG&scy=GB The best way to clean these irons is with neat vinegar - try to get white vinegar and you have less smell to get rid of - fill the iron, give it a good shake and leave it overnight, then use the iron as normal (use it on a kitchen drying up towel or similar) then leave it for another few hours/overnight and then empty out any remaining vinegar and rinse through with water a couple of times. this normally solves any problems caused by limescale - if not then just leave the iron a little longer with the vinegar, also try to pour a little vinegar into the steam vent holes with the iron upturned and leave for a while. Hope this helps :)
