Wouldn't that leave oil marks on you clothes though...?

nope, wouldn't suggest it - try lavender water that is made specifically for adding to an iron - will try to find a link for you.

seem to remember a thread about somebody doing this and going through about five irons in two years and wondering if it was what she was adding to the water.

I add lavender oil to a water spray thing,no oil marks that way.Does mean you have to spray seperately though.

Btw YG ,how did the tuna go down?

i used deionised water

it doesnt smell but 8 I hate all artificial smells anyway.... yuk

it cost about 50p for 2 litres so isnt expensive and it doesnt scale up my iron
