Rowenta provides a wide variety of steam irons to keep your garments looking fresh and wrinkle-free. Some models of Rowenta irons include a self-cleaning option, which allows you to clean impurities from the steam chamber and vents with minimal effort. Minerals from tap water can clog them, resulting in poor steam performance and mineral deposits on your clothing. Use the self-cleaning feature on your Rowenta iron once a month to maintain its optimal performance.
