Hey, You have a "Mildew" issue. Just like leaving clothes in the washer too long before putting them into the dryer. If you read your iron's manual, it is recommended to use "Distilled" water...not tap water. Tap water has impurities...Distilled water does not. Here's the fix...MAKE SURE YOU ARE HOME WHEN YOU DO THIS! Get distilled water (From Grocery Store) Mix 1/2 cup distilled water with 1/2 cup vinegar. Put this into your iron and leave it on. To help it along, push the "Steam" button frequently. You can do this several times...the acid in the vinegar will clean out the residue. Once this is done, fill the iron with water, add a couple of drops of lemon juice and you'll be good to go. I know this to be fact...just did it myself : )
