BEFORE USE
Before using the Power Perfection for the first time,
remove all stickers, protective plastic or cardboard
packaging from the soleplate of the iron.
Make sure that all adhesive parts have been removed
from the soleplate using a damp soft cloth and remove
any residues or particles from the manufacturing
process by repeatedly filling and emptying the water
reservoir.
When you switch on the Power Perfection
for the first time, you may notice an
unpleasant smell, a little smoke and some
impurities. They will disappear in a few minutes.
When using the steam function for the first time,
do not direct the steam jet on the garments
because manufacturing residues may be present
in the steam dispenser.
FILLING THE WATER
RESERVOIR
Water plays an essential role both in the ironing
en
process and in the good operation of the appliance
over a long lifespan. In particular, a high concentration
of limescale may damage some parts of the iron and
cause its early deterioration.
USING YOUR IRON
Power Perfection water tank has a capacity of 1000ml
with extra 200ml boiler.
If your Power Perfection is equipped with the Optimal
Soleplate Temperature technology, you need not
adjust the temperature.
Suitable water
Although the Power Perfection steam generator can
be used with tap water, if the water is very hard (as
measured in French degrees), we recommend mixing
tap water and demineralised water according to the
following table.
Hardness

Sort the garments out according to the fabric
types. This will reduce the need to adjust the
temperature according to the different fabrics.
Start with the garments that require a low ironing
temperature and continue with the garments
requiring higher ironing temperatures.
If you are not sure about the composition of
the fabric, try ironing a hidden part such as a
seam, hem or internal section. Start with low
temperature and gradually increase it until you
find the ideal ironing setting.
When you reduce the steam generator’s
temperature to iron delicate garments, wait
approximately 2 minutes to let the steam
generator reach the new settings.
Pure wool (100% wool) garments can be steamironed as long as the temperature is set to wool.
We recommend using a cotton cloth to prevent
any shiny marks on the garment.
Never iron areas with obvious perspiration
marks because the heat will make the stains fast
and permanent.
