1. When turned on for the first time, your new iron may give off a slight odor for up to ten minutes. This is due to the initial heating of the materials used. It is safe, not detrimental to the performance of the product, and will not recur.
  2. Prior to first use, clean steam vents using the Shot of Steam® feature. After cleaning vents, run iron over an all-cotton cloth to remove any residue.
  3. When not ironing, always have steam dial turned to DRY.
  4. Test the Iron + Steamer on a rag or scrap piece of fabric to make sure there is no staining from initial use.
