1- Fill the water tank according to the product’s instructions. The iron should be unplugged and cold. Don’t fill the tank any higher than its “max” line.
2- Check the label on the garment to determine the right fabric setting. Set the iron’s temperature level accordingly, and wait for the soleplate to heat up. Some models have a light that turns on as the iron heats and turns off when it reaches the desired temperature. Turn on the steam feature when the iron is hot.
3 – Spread the garment on an ironing board and iron as you usually would, moving the iron with the grain of the fabric. The iron will release steam automatically as you work. Point the iron away from yourself to avoid burning yourself with the steam.
4- Iron a section of fabric only long enough to smooth it, not long enough to dry it. The fabric should be slightly damp when you finish ironing. If you’re ironing a piled fabric, such as velvet, hold the iron slightly above the garment instead of pressing down on the material.
5- Spray particularly deep wrinkles with the iron’s spray function if water won’t damage the fabric. Iron over the damp section to relax the wrinkles. Some materials spot when sprayed, so check the garment’s label before using this function.
6- Set the iron on its heel whenever you want to put it down. When you’re finished, unplug the iron. Empty the water carefully while the iron is hot. Rest the iron on its heel until it’s fully cool, then wrap the cord loosely around it and put it away.
