Extending the Life of Your Iron

Every once in a while it is a good thing to run some diluted vinegar (diluted with water) through your steam iron this will remove rust and mineral build-up.

My iron came with the instructions to only use distilled water in it. Will I have any buildup of minerals in mine then? That is all I have ever used in it.

If you only use distilled water you should be fine.
