Question

How can I prevent stains on the soleplate?

Answer

Ironing synthetic materials at high temperatures causes stains when the material is scorched. Synthetics and synthetic-mixed fabrics can only be ironed at the 'two dot' 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' and iron the soleplate over a piece of moist cotton rag.
