How To Descale Your Iron
Pour equal parts white vinegar and water into the water reservoir until it’s a third full. Turn it on to medium heat and let it steam for about 5-10 minutes so all the vinegar evaporates.
Then, fill the chamber with fresh water and turn the iron on again to flush through traces of mineral deposits and vinegar. Wipe the base of the iron and steam vents with a paper towel.
To clean clogged steam vents, use a cotton bud dipped in water and vinegar solution.
To help prevent the build-up of limescale deposits in the iron, always remove excess water from the chamber when you’ve finished ironing.
