    Rowenta iron

    I would contact rowenta especially with sparks for a replacement. Consumer products do not like hearing about sparks. If you think it was really bad contact consumer products safety which might create a recall so that someone doesn't get hurt

    Christine,
    When you clean the ion with vinigar do you fill it with just vinegar? If you mix what ratio?
    Thanks

    FYI: Another soleplate iron cleaner
    I bought a product from Joanns Notion wall a tube of iron cleaner. You put an amount on a clean cloth then run hot iron over it. Smelly but works great.

    Just a little correction on the vinegar....it is an acid. That's why it removes all the very basic "gunk". It's 5% full strength, but I would dilute it by half with water to clean your iron. (PS- taught chemistry!) If you don't believe me, just add some to bicarbonate of soda (Arm and Hammer) and watch the neat reaction!

    My Rowenta just fell apart not long after I got it. I didn't drop it, but the front end just came apart and I couldn't get it to stay together. I bought a Black & Decker and haven't had a minutes trouble with it! Years ago I had a B & D that had a manual shut-off on the side of the iron. I haven't been able to find another iron with that feature, but I just plug it into an extension that has a lighted shut-off and that works OK for me.

    Oh please Have you thought of replacing the cord? So much cheaper. Take it to a small appliance guy and he can replace the cord for next to nothing compared to buying a new iron.

    Use straight vinegar, no water. If you've never cleaned out your iron before, you'll want to do this process 3 times, making sure you use water to rinse out the chunks that come loose, before starting the next process. This will not hurt your iron, coffee maker, humidifier, etc. It will give your iron a new life! I have a blog post with photos if you can't find the instructions I posted earlier.... http://quiltdasher.blogspot.com/
