The iron can also be cleaned without detergents. Believe it or not, look at this trick.
Over time, lime deposits and dirt form on the iron. This certainly makes ironing difficult, so it is important to clean the iron properly.
Before you start cleaning, prepare a heat-resistant container (tray, refractory dish, pot) in which you can place the iron.
You will also need two wooden sticks on which to place the iron, so that there is a distance of about 1 cm between the iron and the bottom of the tray. This is the easiest way to clean the iron.
Then do the following:
Take the refractory pan and put the wooden sticks at the bottom of it. Put the irons on them. Pour citric acid into the pan and add boiling water.
The required amount of water and citric acid depends on the size of the container, should be in the ratio of: 1 teaspoon citric acid per 200 ml of water.
The water should cover the heating plate of the iron 1-1.5 cm. All rubber and electrical parts should be located above the water and the iron should, of course, be switched off.
Allow to stand for 5-10 minutes. Then, place the pan over moderate heat. When the water is boiling in the pan, let it simmer for another 10-15 minutes.
You will see what comes out of your iron. Then, rinse thoroughly and clean it (if there is an option for self-cleaning) both on the outside and on the inside. Wipe with a soft cloth and let stand for several hours.
You can use it again after this procedure.
You already know that the iron can be cleaned without detergents.
