Miele Ironing Handbook
Introduction
General notes on ironing
Fabrics suitable for ironing
Correctly ironed laundry will be smooth,
crease-free and not misshapen. However, in
order to achieve this, the correct
combination of mechanical energy, heat and
steam is required.
Different types of fabric react differently to
being ironed. Cottons and linens expand
when wet, and ironing at a high temperature
and pressure will make these fabrics
smooth, shiny and dry.
Mechanical energy is achieved by
producing the right amount of pressure and
contact between the iron and the item
passing through it.
Synthetic fabrics are sensitive to heat and
melt at high temperatures. Manufacturers
state the fibers used in the textiles on the
care label, e.g. 65% cotton and 35%
polyester.
Heat is needed to create steam, which helps
make the fabric more pliable and easier to
iron. To avoid damage to fabrics, the
temperature must be right for the type of
fabric being ironed.
Steam occurs when damp items are ironed
at temperatures in excess of 212°F (100°C).
When water changes to steam, it expands
rapidly to heat and penetrate the fabric. As
the moisture evaporates, a film of steam is
created which helps the fabric glide through
the rotary iron.
Most care labels also carry washing
instructions, in the form on international
laundry care symbols. These symbols tell
you whether or not the items can be ironed,
and at which temperature setting.

How fabrics should be ironed
^ Buttons, zippers and ties should face the
roller covering as they are fed into the iron
to prevent them from damaging the heater
plate.
Do not iron items with fringe, thin ties or
straps. These could get tangled in the
roller and cause a fault. Heat-sensitive
items may be ironed at a higher
temperature if a damp linen or cotton
cloth is placed between the item and the
heater plate.
16
Introduction
Washing items prior to ironing
Cleaning and caring for heater plate
The washing process is very important.
Follow the manufacturers guidelines on
detergent. It too much detergent is used and
is not fully rinsed, residues can be left on the
laundry.
Regular cleaning and maintenance of the
heater plate is essential for the protection of
the motor and the roller cover, and helps to
prolong the life of the machine.
Depending on the hardness level of the
water, limescale deposits can also occur in
areas with a water hardness level greater
than 4 (~21° dH or 3.8 mmol/l).
Drying laundry prior to ironing
For items to be completely dry after passing
through the iron once, the laundry needs to
be dried before ironing.
Good ironing results depend on the residual
moisture level. A minimum residual moisture
level of 25% is necessary to obtain a good
finish. Starched items need a residual
moisture level of at least 40%.
A Nomex cleaning cloth with a Scotch
cleaning mat can be used at maximum
speed and temperatures up to 284°F
(140°C). A Scotch cleaning strip can be
used at temperatures up to 212°F (100°C).
Wax must be applied to reduce friction.
Do not use abrasive cleaning materials,
e.g. sand paper, to clean aluminum heater
plates. A cleaning cloth should be used to
remove heavy soiling, e.g. starch or
limescale deposits.
17
Caring for your rotary iron
Accessories for cleaning
Waxing and cleaning
Nomex cleaning cloth
max. 284°F (140°C)
For daily removal of residue and starch from
the roller.
At the end of the workday or as needed
(to clean light deposits): apply a small
quantity of Cleanpaste with a clean wax
cloth. This will loosen any minor soiling
overnight, and help prevent the build-up of
deposits on the rotary iron. For best results,
use the whole width of the iron.
Cleaning mat, round-grained
max. 284°F (140°C)
For daily removal of residue and starch from
the roller.
Accessories for waxing
Wax cloth with pouch
max. 392°F (200°C)
For smooth ironing it may be necessary to
wax the heater plate. Mostly used in
commercial settings where the iron is used
40 hrs per week.
Wax
1.1 lb (0.5 kg)
Cleanpaste
6.6 lb (3 kg)
Use as needed. If items being pressed are
heavily starched or if pressing starched
items 8 hrs per day the iron may need to be
cleaned using Cleanpaste once per week. If
heavy starch is not used Cleanpaste may
not be needed. Use a different wax cloth
to apply Cleanpaste, do not use the same
cloth that has been used for wax.
^ Using a spatula, spread the Cleanpaste
about 1 ¼ to 2 inches (3-5 cm) wide inside
the cloth pouch.
^ Close the pouch, and pass the cloth
through the machine.
At the beginning of each working day:
pass a cleaning cloth through the machine.
This will remove any loosened deposits from
the day before. For best results, use the
whole width of the iron.
If needed, use a wax cloth with ironing wax.
Only use a small quantity of wax in the
morning. The iron can be used as required
without adding any more wax.
^ Place some granular wax in the pouch of
the wax cloth.
^ Close the pouch and feed the cloth
through the iron with the non-rubber side
facing the heater plate.
^ Run the machine on the ßßß setting.
Use the wax sparingly to avoid the ironing
cloth from becoming too smooth.

Caring for your rotary iron
How to use the cloth with pouch
General notes
– Use separate cloths for ironing wax and
Cleanpaste.
The amount and frequency of application
can vary according to use, as a general
rule "Less is more".
– When using the cleaning cloth make sure
that the maximum recommended
temperature is not exceeded.
Passing a cleaning cloth or wax
cloth through the rotary iron
Do not use abrasive cleaning materials,
e.g. sand paper, to clean aluminum heater
plates. A cleaning cloth should be used to
remove heavy soiling, e.g. starch or
limescale deposits.
Removing and replacing the cover
Washing the iron cover
In cases of severe soiling, the iron cover
should be washed using a very hot wash
program.
Removing the iron cover from the roller
On irons with leaf-type padding the iron
cover must be removed very carefully to
prevent it from snagging and damaging the
padding. The bottom layer of the cover must
be carefully eased away from the padding.
Fitting the iron cover on the roller
If a new ironing cover is being fitted it should
first be washed in a Cotton or Normal
program. See "Cleaning and Care" for more
information.
