Why does my iron keep spitting crap!?

Brace yourself, here come an angry rant.

A) brown water stains. B) brown spit

A) brown water stains. B) brown spit

My iron is doing me head in! The reason why my ironing board looks like **** is because my iron continues to puke brown-ish crap. Just look at the photo, there are small pieces of I-don’t-even-know-what-that-is all over the place. And what’s worse it that one of these days I swear, that thing is gonna spit all over my wedding dress and I will end up crying in a corner.

I’m having a hard time believing that I’m mistreating it in some way. I mean, it’s an iron, not a space rocket. So if you’ve got any ideas, I’m all ears!

  1. Sometimes it helps to clean out the filter. If I don’t do that with my iron for a long time it spits brown too :-)

    • Filter? Where? I don’t think mine’s got a filter? I think it’s supposed to clean itself :S

      • Ohh… okay well mine has a water reservoir (so that it also produces steam) and that water reservoir needs to be cleaned from time to time. If it isn’t, it will produce ‘rust’ or water with a high ‘chalk’ level. (don’t know how you should call it, haha)

        • Finally, I found a hidden magic stick! Upon removal, the water floods out of the water reservoir :) Until now, I’ve just been pushing the steam-button like a mad man. I’m so happy that it took care of the cleaning problem but the root cause remains. A friend told me that her iron never spits like mine does. I think I’m gonna head over to the petrol station on my way home tomorrow to get some distilled water.

  2. http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Distilled-Water sinds you are pretty handy this will do right :)

  3. went on that web site you recommended btw loved it soo much steampunk stuff was awesome :)

    • Hehe, yeah I thought you’d like it. I’ve thought about making my own water but it just seems like such a hazzle. I’m gonna have to buy it instead. The only problem then is to carry it home but I guess i could always send Martin out on a quest to get me some :D

  4. aye let him feel the pain of collecting stuff for the quest giver :)

  5. you not take my candle ;)
