One of the best features of the Rowenta iron is the self-cleaning feature that lets you clean the iron by itself up to 95 percent accuracy. It is the easiest process where you just need water, damp cloth, and power supply. Here are the steps to be followed
At first, set the thermostat of the iron at the dry mode and fill the storage tank up to the max position. Oh, don’t forget to be ensured that there is no small particle on the water, better to use distilled water or filtered water.
Anyway, after filling the water tank close the safety inlet of the storage tank and set the thermostat knob at the max position. After setting up all of these, plug in the power cable and wait for un till the temperature indicator lit up.
At this stage, first, unplug the power cable carefully hold the iron over a sink or a tub horizontally. Ensure that the diameter of the sink covers the full iron plate. Then press the self-clean button of the iron for one minute which is situated just behind the thermostat knob.
As long as you press the self-cleaning button, it will spread steam through the small holes of the plate. At the same time shake the iron gently back and forth. Thus, steam will come through all the holes and it will clean them if they were stuck for any small particles.
After that, again plug in the iron and wait for 2 minutes so that the iron will again heat up and the remaining water of the tank will be evaporated. Thus, the tank will be empty and unplug the power cable.
After around 1 hour, when the iron plate cooled down, wipe out the plate with a damp cloth and ensured that it is totally clean. After all of these processes, you are done and the iron is cleaned.
How to Clean Rowenta Iron Plate
If you found that some dirt is stuck with your iron plate, then the self-cleaning option might not be that helpful. In this case, you can follow the following steps that will get rid of this kind of problem.
In this case, you will need an unused clean piece of cloth and Rowenta hot iron cleaner gel that you may found on the local store or Rowenta online store. Anyway, at first, take some gel on the cloth and pour the water storage tank with clean water.
Now, plug in the power cable and wait un-till the iron becomes hot enough and the indicator light lit up. You must set the thermostat at the dry mode and thermostat knob at the proper position according to the fabric of the cloth.
Now, if the iron is heated enough unplug the cable and move the iron over the cloth back and forth. You can also press the steam button so that some hot steam will come up and make the process faster.
It’s just like you are ironing the cloth as you do in other cases. But ensure that the dirty portion of the plate covers the gel that you put on the cloth earlier.
After a moment, check the plate carefully whether there is more dirt or not. If there are still some, then you might need some more gel on the cloth and repeat the processes.
But if there is nothing, then keep the Rowenta iron in a safe place to be cooled down. When the iron is cooled enough, wipe out the plate with a damp cloth and you are ready to use it.
