Discover just how to remove stains from your Philips iron's soleplate with these simple steps.
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
Some cloth made from cotton
Ensure room is well ventilated
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
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.
