What are the benefits of using steam iron?
Steam irons produce hot steam mist to loosen the fabric fibers, just like a spray but without dampening the clothes. The soleplate then straightens the fibers
and dries the clothes instantaneously. As a result, the clothes can be ironed faster and the end results are better.
What to look out for when buying a steam iron?
Some key points to look out for include the soleplate for glideability and steam diffusion, steam power (wattage and steam output), durability, ergonomy (all
controls should be near the handle), ease of use, easily filling of water tank, stability of iron, cord storage and the iron weight.
Why do I need a good soleplate?
A good soleplate offers glideability, scratch resistance, steam dispersion and easy cleaning.
How do I steam iron?
First, sort the clothes according to the type of fabric. Then set the steam iron to 'no steam' mode. Fill the water tank with tap water, taking note of the max. marking.
Adjust the temperature, starting with the most delicate material. Next, select the steam level, and turn on the power. Wait for the pilot light to go off, then start ironing.
How is scale formed?
Scale from water is changed into mineral deposits under the action of heat. The scale can block the steam vents on the soleplate affecting the steam output.
How to solve the scale build-up?
All Tefal steam irons provide double protection against limescale with steam valve and self-cleaning features. Selected models provide triple protection with
an integrated permanent anti-scale system which is made from chemical components to prevent scale building up in the steam iron.
