About this deal

We take the utmost care to ensure that all information about the products displayed on our site is accurate.

Many people use regular tap water in their irons even in hard water areas without any apparent problems. If you’ve decided you’d like to try using ironing water in your iron, it can be purchased from many supermarkets in the UK or online. Smells nice, doesnt over perfume the ironing, keeps the steam iron lime scale free, we live in an extremely hard water area. In some cases, manufacturers argue that adding a perfumed and extra treated liquid to an iron can be bad for it. If there’s a buildup of limescale on that element it takes more energy to heat the water to the same degree.You can use the water that comes from your tap in your steam iron here in the UK but you need to be aware of the minerals in that water. Pair it up with Comfort’s amazing range of fabric conditioners and open the door to a world of delightfully soft clothes and wonderful fragrance.

It’s supposed to protect the iron from limescale build-up, help give laundry a nicer scent, make ironing easier and, in some cases, prevent a build-up of static form occurring (although this doesn’t always apply to every type of ironing water). If you are looking for a new steam iron, make sure it has a good "calc-clean" or "anti-calc" system (a method of de-scaling the iron). If your iron is getting a little clogged up with limescale and you’ve noticed that your laundry isn’t smelling quite as fresh as you’d like, perhaps it’s time you added some ironing water to your iron.

There have been instances where this has led to the iron malfunctioning or breaking down completely. I don't know about putting essential oils in - I wonder about the safety of even a few drops of oil (presumably inflamable) in an iron, and since it wouldn't mix with the water I'd guess there's also a danger of oil spots on clothes.

Nonetheless, you should always read your user handbook to make sure that this type of water won’t cause severe damage to your machine.

There are some ironing water manufacturers that claim their product can prevent or at least, cut down any chances of static buildup.

However, you need to check in your user manual that the product you intend using to descale your iron is approved by the manufacturer. If you live in a hard water area, just put a couple of drops of lemon juice or any acidic substance in the water, to counteract the calcium in the hard water. Finally, while the iron is switched off you can add a measure of ironing water into the water tank (see label for exact measurement). Used in your iron instead of normal water, Comfort Intense Vaporesse helps you effortlessly glide over creases for easy ironing and smooth clothes that hang better. To use ironing water in your iron you should check the user handbook that came with your iron to see if you’re allowed to use such a product in your machine.

I've used it in both my irons, read the warning about using it in steam irons but was curious, there was little spit back but other than that it worked great.
