How to prevent stains on a Philips Steam iron soleplate
Stains on your Philips Steam iron can have different causes. With these instructions you can easily prevent them.
Ironing synthetic fabrics at high temperature causes stain when synthetic material is scorched. Synthetics or synthetic-mixed fabrics can only be ironed at ‘oo’ or ‘wool’ temperature setting or lower.
Step 1. Always set the temperature according to the type of clothing being ironed; if unsure, always start with a lower temperature
Step 2. If the soleplate is stained, heat up the iron to ‘max’ temperature and iron the soleplate over a piece of moist cotton rag
