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:
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)
Unplug the iron and place it on its heel with a piece of cotton cloth underneath
Apply the cleaning stick to the dirty area once or twice
Wipe the dirty area and liquid from the soleplate with the piece of cotton cloth
Clean off the remaining wax in the steam vents with a cotton bud and by steam ironing over the rag cloth
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.
