Top Tefal Tips for a Great Ironing Experience

How to Avoid Leaking

To avoid any water dripping, set the steam control to « dry » mode while filling the iron water tank and while iron is not being used.

To avoid any water dripping, do not push the “Turbo Boost” steam trigger more than 3 times in a row. Wait a few seconds before starting again.


Maintaining your Iron

If your iron has an anti-calc system, you should clean the anti-calc valve once a month. To do this, unplug the iron and leave it to cool for 30-45 minutes. Empty the water and remove the valve, holding it by the top. Let the anti-calc valve soak for 4 hours in a glass of commercially available white vinegar or natural lemon juice, then thoroughly rinse the anti-calc valve under tap water. Reposition the anti-calc valve into your iron.
*Warning! Never touch the end of the anti-calc valve. the iron does not work without the anti-calc valve.


Use the Correct Type of Water

Your appliance has been designed to work with tap water. If your water is hard, mix 50% tap water with 50% distilled water (available in stores). Do not use rainwater or water containing additives (starch, perfume, aromatic substances, softeners, etc.) or water obtained through condensation (e.g. dryer, refrigerators, air conditioners or rainwater). These contain organic waste as well as minerals that condense under the influence of heat and cause sputtering, brown stains or the premature wear of your appliance.
