How can I clean the soleplate of my Philips steam iron?

When the soleplate of your Philips Iron or Steam Generator is stained or has fabric stuck to it, find out how to simply clean it below.

Instructions to clean the soleplate of your Philips Iron

If you want to clean the soleplate of your Philips Iron, please use the cleaning stick GC012 and follow the cleaning instructions below:

  1. Set the iron’s temperature to between “1 dot” and “2 dots” (if your iron belongs to the PerfectCare range, you can skip this step)
  2. Unplug the iron and place it on its heel with a piece of cotton cloth underneath
  3. Apply the cleaning stick to the dirty area once or twice
  4. Wipe the dirty area and liquid from the soleplate with the piece of cotton cloth
  5. Clean off the remaining wax in the steam vents with a cotton bud and by steam ironing over the rag cloth

Note:

The soleplate is hot. Please do not touch it with your bare hands. During cleaning, some fumes will be emitted from the melted cleaning stick material. Do not ingest the cleaning stick. Keep the cleaning stick away from children.
