FAQ



Leave the iron to cool down before putting it away and follow these 4 tips:
Empty out the water remaining in the tank, set the thermostat to minimum, switch off the steam control and stand it upright or put it back in its base (depending on the model).

• The Durillium soleplate:
Regularly clean the soleplate with a damp, non metallic washing up pad. For easier, non-corrosive cleaning of your iron's soleplate, use a damp sponge on the soleplate while it is still warm.
If cleaning dirt off is an issue, use the stick which is made specifically for cleaning the Durillium soleplates.
• The stainless soleplate:
Clean the soleplate of your iron when it is cool with a damp cloth or a non-abrasive sponge.
• The autoclean soleplate:
It is recommended that you use a soft damp cloth on the warm soleplate, in order not to damage the surface.
Warning: The use of iron cleaner will cause damage to your soleplate's autoclean coating.


If your iron has an anti-calc system, you should clean the anti-calc valve once a month.
To do this, unplug the iron and leave it to cool for 30-45 minutes.
Empty the water and remove the valve, holding it by the top.
Put the valve into a glass of lemon juice (or white vinegar) for 4 hours.
Then rinse it with plenty of water and put it back inside the iron.
Be careful! Do not hold the valve at the edges.


Gently shake your iron to reactivate it, the lights should start to flash and then the iron should start to heat up.


The electronic system cuts off the power supply and the auto-stop light flashes if the iron is not moved for more than 8 minutes (on its rest or base) or is left flat for more than 30 seconds.
To turn the iron back on, shake it gently until the light goes out.
