howdy folks...

my steam generator iron is very battered...i cant get all the black stuff off it using the cleaning wipes etc. tried loads and they do diddly squit. iron needs a good clean but i jus dunno how... also spitting out yucky water when u initially use it.... i assume because its mucky... am thinkin of buying a new one but this was £230 when i got it and is still one of the better ones...so would prefer to know how to clean it....

A way to get the black off is to iron on brown paper, or if youi have an old tea towel use that. The high heat should melt if and it SHOULD stick to the paper/towel. It worked for me.
Maybe try bicarb of soda in the water.

Good luck!

agree need a lot of elbow grease.... its really burnt on! we got guests coming and when they wanna use iron dont want it to be too embarrasing!

yeah i got the cheap iron in bedroom as a quick spare .... but i bugged hubby for the tefal pro express a couple years back..at that time ws best on market...still spec wise is pretty fab!

I don't think that is a good idea.
Irons tend to have a Teflon like coating on them to make ironing easier and the scouring pad will take that coating off.
I wouldn't use one. :thumbsup:
