Frequently Asked Questions

What type of water can I use in my Philips steam iron?

Using the right type of water helps prolong your Philips steam iron's lifespan. Please read along to find some tips and tricks.

Water type to use

Your Philips steam iron has been designed to be used with tap water. However, if you live in an area with hard water, fast scale build-up may occur.

Therefore, to prolong the lifespan of your iron it is recommended to use distilled or demineralized water (50% demineralized water mixed with tap water could be used too).

Please do not use perfumed water, water from the tumble dryer, vinegar, starch, descaling agents, ironing aids, chemically descaled water or other chemicals as they may cause water spitting, brown staining or damage to your steam iron.
