What type of water can I use in my Philips steam iron or steamer?
Water type to use
Therefore, to prolong the lifespan of your iron or steamer it is recommended that you use distilled or demineralised water (50% demineralised water mixed with tap water can also be used).
Please do not use perfumed water, water from the tumble dryer, vinegar, starch, descaling agents, ironing aids, chemically descaled water or other chemicals as they may cause water spitting, brown staining or damage to your steam iron or garment steamer.
To perfume your clothes, we recommend that you choose one of the following options:
• Using perfumed washing softener
• Using essential oils (aromas) during washing
• Spraying perfumed water after ironing or steaming
