I’m updating the irons content for CHOICE and am interested to know from the CHOICE Community how you maintain your iron, both inside (the water) and out (the soleplate), for possible inclusion in a “maintenance tips” article.
- Do you use a commercial descaler specific to the task, or inexpensive remedies such as vinegar and water?
- How do you clean any burnt material or residue off the soleplate? Paper bag, etc?
- Does your iron or steam generator have a built-in decalcifying function and do you use it? Do you find it effective?
- How often do you clean it - this of course depends on the type of ironing you do and the water hardness.
Thanks in advance and hopefully we can all share some tips!
