Cleaning Your Iron...How to Clean Your Iron


Cleaning your iron - Pour an equal amount of vinegar and distilled water in your iron's reservoir.  Turn the iron on and make it stream and spray until it is empty.  This helps clear out the steam vents in your iron. If the vents are still clogged try using straight vinegar.  Flush with water when done.

To clean the sole of your iron, wipe it down with a good cleaner like top job.

If it is an oily base dirt on the sole try using a soft rag with ammonia, and then rinse well.

Once the sole of your iron is clean you could iron pieces of wax paper to coat the bottom which helps make the iron go over fabric better. (this step is optional and a personal preference.)


Caring for your iron - ONLY use distilled water in your iron.  I was taught this 25 years ago in home-economics in school and it is still true today.  Regular water from your sink has minerals that can clog and damage your iron.

Clean your iron often.  Wipe it down with a soft rag and keep it clean, especially if you use starch or things like "wonder under", or interfacing.

Always unplug your iron when not in use.

Do NOT immerse your iron in water.

If the cord is damaged, throw away your iron and get a new one.

Keep iron away from children.
