Ironing 101 Tips. Distilled Water. No Longer The ‘It’ Water For Your Iron.
Why Is This So? Facts. Facts. Facts.
Maybe it’s my age. But I remember. Not so long ago. When tap water was strictly taboo in your iron. And distilled water was the darling of the iron manufacturers.
And for today’s modern iron, this is the drill.
If you’re still using pure distilled water in your iron. And your iron spits. And leaks. Most of the time. Rather than just occasionally. You’re going to have to change to tap water.
If your water is hard water, try a 50/50 solution of tap water + distilled water.
You should see a difference.
Why is this so?
Technology has changed.
In modern irons, it can now be difficult to create steam with distilled water. Some iron makers also caution that distilled water can adversely affect the internal components of your iron.
Therefore, that old adage of . . . when in doubt, read the instructions . . . is true of the modern iron.
