My iron shits itself on clean clothes. It’s a good few years old now and I’ve decided to replace it. Does anyone have an iron that doesn’t have this problem and is able to control its bowels? Can you recommend a brand?
My iron constantly shits itself and it is only two months old. It also appears to have dandruff as it covers my clothes in white powdery stuff. Not helpful but even new ones seems to do it. So I'm placemarking
I've not found one yet. I live in a hard water area and always assumed it's to do with that. I have an old pillow case that I let it shit itself on, then start the proper ironing once it seems done. It never is though and ds's school shorts are always covered in little bits of iron shit. Doesn't seem to come out in the wash either.
I had a very intelligent iron. It knew to spew out the brown stuff if I was ironing something white and the dandruff stuff if I was ironing something dark. Genius. Even with my new iron which I always empty & regularly de-scale, it still can’t be trusted, so I always test it on a piece of kitchen towel at the beginning of the ironing. It’s a bloody expensive Philips steam generator fwiw.
Never had this problem as we are in Scotland so are l lucky to have soft water. Sounds like you need am iron to deal with your water quality or buy water for ironing. Would water from a filter water jug work?
