Euro-Pro Steam Iron Instructions

Steam irons work to eliminate wrinkles in garments and home fabric decorations, such as heat-safe draperies and curtains, in two basic ways. They work vertically for steam-only ironing while the garment is still on the hanger, and horizontally for iron and steam pressing on a flat surface such as an ironing board. Euro-Pro steam irons have a water reservoir with a self-cleaning function to remove built-up calcium deposits that can plug up the steam vents, and an automatic shut-off feature if the iron is not used.

    Using the Steam Feature with Ironing

  1. 1

    Turn the temperature dial to a setting compatible with the garment being ironed. Set the iron on its heel upright, and allow the iron to fully heat for two minutes prior to ironing.

  2. 2

    Hold the iron in a horizontal position and begin to iron the garment. When the iron is turned to a horizontal position, it will automatically produce steam. Turn the steam dial to a setting to produce the desired amount of steam for the garment being ironed.

  3. 3

    Press the water spray button to shoot a jet of water on the garment to help remove stubborn wrinkles. To produce extra steam when using the steam iron, press the burst-of-steam button to release an extra shot of steam during ironing.

  4. 4

    Hold the iron in a vertical position to stop producing steam. For vertical steaming from the iron, use the burst-of-steam function.

    Using the Burst-of-Steam Feature

  1. 1

    Place the iron upright on its heel. Preheat the iron for two minutes at the maximum heat setting.

  2. 2

    Place the garment on a hanger away from other garments, and away from people.

  3. 3

    Hold the iron about 2 inches from the fabric being steamed, and press the burst-of-steam button, pointing directly to the wrinkles. Steam will exit from the soleplate. Wave or move the steam iron over the garment in areas needing ironing while pressing the burst-of-steam button.

  4. 4

    Stop the steaming by resting the iron in a vertical position on its heel.

Tips and warnings

  • Allow the steam iron to fully heat up for the best production of steam.
  • Let the iron cool down completely before storing.
  • Always point the vertical steam feature away from people and other garments.
