Iron Doesn't Produce Steam

We have a steam iron that we haven't used for about a year. Before putting it away, we emptied the water from the reservoir. Now we are trying to get it to steam, but it won't. Any tips for cleaning it? We have only used this iron a couple of times.

You might try vinegar to unclog the sprayer. Leave the hot iron on a while, then empty and rinse a couple of times. Good luck.

To remove stains, I use wax paper with salt rubbing the hot iron over it several times.

Sometimes the sprayer gets a calcified buildup; you might try either a needle or a thin, bent-straight paper clip to see if it clears it.

Vinegar water. Fill it up and let it sit steaming, fill again.
