Cleaning a Tefal Protect Steam Generator (iron) sole plate

Man, I accidentally had the iron on a the hottest setting and ironed an item of clothing (ok ok.. It was a sock.. Yes, I iron socks ) and burnt the sole plate.
The Australian website refers to a cleaning product only found in Australia and the US (Hispeed) and the German website has no recommendations on what to use.

Does anyone know what I can use to clean it?

Re: Cleaning a Tefal Protect Steam Generator (iron) sole plate

Ingredients
  • Sticky Iron
  • Bowl of water, lightly soaped
  • Supply of plastic kitchen scourers
  • Light elbow grease

Method
  1. Set iron to low heat.
  2. Soak plastic scourer in water.
  3. Get scrubbing (using light elbow grease), making sure that scourer remains wet at all times.
  4. Replace scourer as required.
  5. Repeat until iron is useable again.
  6. Learn that socks were never meant to be ironed.

Re: Cleaning a Tefal Protect Steam Generator (iron) sole plate

Leezen very carefully, I vil say zis only once.

1) Never ever iron zocks

2) Only ever buy cotton zocks.

3) Take said iron and press against forehead of luvved one and repeat after me -

"iron ze own fekking zox schweinhund"

4) Light das big joint und chill, das life is too short"

5) Throw das iron in das bin und demand a new iron "

We all have our "things" that we do and ironing socks is mine mmmkay.. I'm sure you also do odd things mister (no one is innocent of that ).
So I can really use a (wet) plastic scourer on it? I'm nervous.. What if I scratch the darn thing..

Girlfriend, you're too funny . At least you didn't say you iron underwear!

Sorry I can't help on this one but I don't iron a go-darn thing! Yup! Not a single thing! Crumpled is good. Hehe!

Re: Cleaning a Tefal Protect Steam Generator (iron) sole plate

Two dayz ago I wanted go check sumfin under the bonnet. Lifted da latch, propped up a bonnet and put keys on the side of the engine compartment. After inspection shut da bonnet and it doesn't latch properly, so I slam it again and again and the bugger doesn't let go... Then I find my keys were preventing darn thing from closing. Few cuts on the keys and small scratches on bugger. Learnt to HTFU...


Warm water and soap or some salt solution should do the trick

It's an aluminium alloy, much loved by flying types (including passengers, if only they knew )

You won't, that's why you're using plastic scourers :-)

You don't iron anything? Really? I guess that gives you more time to watch weird movies Haha!

Ok, so wet soapy plastic scourer and a cream cleaner (I guess like the one used for ceramic stove tops). Good. I'll leave the thing to cool down and give it a try.

Thanks y'all!

Yes, really I don't

Okay, I'm weird (wired too ) but hey, you still love me just the same and wouldn't have me any other way (hopefully). Hehe!
