Troubleshooting

Fabric has melted onto my Philips iron

Discover just how to remove stains from your Philips iron's soleplate with these simple steps.

Damp sponge

You can use a damp, soft sponge to clean your iron's soleplate. If the stain cannot be removed by the sponge, you can use the Philips cleaning stick.

Philips Soleplate Cleaner

You need:

  • Some cloth made from cotton
  • Ensure room is well ventilated
  • Cotton bud

Instructions:
1) Set the temperature dial on the soleplate to between “1 dot” and “2 dot” setting
2) Unplug the iron and let it rest on its heel with a piece of cotton cloth underneath
3) Apply the cleaning stick over the stained area once or twice
4) Wipe off the stain and liquid from the soleplate with the piece of cloth
5) Clean off the remaining wax in the steam vents with a cotton bud and by steam ironing over the cloth

Cleaning soleplate

How the Philips Soleplate Cleaner works

The Philips cleaning stick melts wax-like material to get rid of the stains. The waxy material loosens the stains so that they can be wiped away with a cloth.

Caution: During the cleaning action, some fumes will be emitted from the melted cleaning stick material. The soleplate is hot; do not touch with bare hands. Do not ingest cleaning stick; keep it away from children.

Picture 1 and 2 show the stained soleplate before and after applying the cleaning stick (green area).
