Hope this is in the right place, this is my first post in EL!

My Comfort ironing water is about to run out, so could anyone recommend a more natural alternative or even making my own? I'm in the process of replacing all my household products with less chemically stuff.

I live in a hard water area, so not sure I can put tap water in the iron?

I use fabric softener so once theres only a teensy bit left in the bottle, I fill with tap water and shake and use.

However I iron one item a decade week.

Do you use a dehumidifier? The water out of that is distiller water.

I use water from the dehumidifier too, and I never ever have to descale my iron

If you use a condenser tumble dryer, the collected water is distilled, and can be used as ironing water.

I use kettle water and add this? it makes my ironing smell so fresh. It's only a couple of pounds from pound stretcher or home barging and lasts ages! No oil so no stain marks ��

I second water from condensing tumble dryer. Works brilliantly
