How to use Philips steam iron
Before the first use: it is important to look for any sticker or protective foil from the soleplate and remove them.
Filling the water tank: Make sure the iron is not plugged in. Tilt the iron back and fill the water tank, never go beyond the MAX indication. If your area supplies hard water, it is advised to mix some distilled water with it.
Setting the temperature: Set the temperature dial of the iron box by turning the temperature dial to the appropriate position. Iron the reverse side of Silk, woollen and synthetic materials they tend to make shiny patches while steam ironed. Usually, there is a temperature light which tells that the iron is adjusting the temperature to the one you have set it to. Wait a while before ironing once the light goes off or turns into a different colour.
● Use minimum ironing temperature for Synthetic fabrics (e.g. acrylic, viscose, polyamide, polyester)
● The next setting for silk fabrics.
● The next setting can be used for woollen materials.
● You can use maximum temperature for cotton and linen clothes
Steam Ironing: Only after the temperature light has gone out, set the steam control to the appropriate steam position. It is important to make sure that the steam setting you select is suitable for the ironing temperature selected.
● To prevent hot water from leaking through the iron, it is advised not to use steam or steam boost at low temperature.
