Before first use
Remove any stickers, protective foil or storage cover from the soleplate.
Heat up the iron to maximum temperature and iron over a piece of damp cloth for several
minutes for the purpose of removing any residue on the soleplate.
Note: It is normal for a strange odour to come from the unit during the first use. This is due
to light oils used to preserve components during manufacture. The odour will disappear after
first use.
Open the water tank cover, then add clean water into the water tank (use beaker not tap). For
best results and longer product life, use bottled or purified water – especially if you live in
a hard water area. Make sure not to exceed Max level on the tank. NOTE: IF YOU OVER FILL
Press down cover of water tank and you will hear a click if it is in the correct position.
Connect plug to outlet and turn temperature dial to your desired setting, which is determined
by the type of fabric you intend to iron. The indicator light will illuminate.
Make sure steam control is on dry (0) position then place the iron vertically
Once soleplate temperature has reached the preset temperature, indicator light will turn off,
then set steam dial to your desired steam output or dry position and begin ironing. WARNING:
Not touch hot soleplate at any time during ironing. It will be very hot.
Press spray button a couple of times to moisten the laundry if necessary, before spraying make
sure that there is enough water in water tank. A few presses might be required to pump the
water through on first use
Steam shot function is best used at max temperature, as it helps remove stubborn creases.
The iron has an anti-drip function: if you are ironing dense garments for a long time, the
soleplate temperature can drop. To prevent water coming from the soleplate, the iron will
automatically reduce the steam output.
“Steam shot” can also be applied when holding the iron in a vertical position, so this is useful for
removing creases from hung clothes, curtains, etc.

Always check first whether a label with ironing instructions is attached to the article.
The iron heats up quicker than it cools down, therefore, you should start ironing the articles
requiring the lowest temperature such as those made of synthetic fibres.
If the fabric consists of various kinds of fibres, you must always select the lowest ironing
temperature to iron the composition of those fibres.
Silk and other fabrics that are likely to become shiny should be ironed on the inner side.
To prevent staining do not spray water straight on silk or other delicate fabrics.
Velvet and other textures that rapidly become shiny should be ironed in one direction with light
pressure applied. Always keep the iron moving at any given moment.
Pure woollen fabrics (100% wool) may be ironed with the iron set a steam position. Preferably
set steam button to the maximum position and use a dry cloth as a mat.
Note: when ironing woolen fabrics, shining of the fabric may occur. So it is suggested that you
should turn the article inside out and iron the reverse side.
Disconnect power supply and empty the water left in water tank. Reconnect the power supply
and disconnect after indicator light goes off, this dries the soleplate.
Let the iron completely cool down, then wipe flakes and any other deposits on the soleplate
with a damp cloth or a non-abrasive (liquid) cleaner. Clean the upper part of iron with a damp
cloth. Always store the emptied iron horizontally on a stable surface with a cloth protecting the
If you live in a hard water area it will be necessary to descale the iron regularly (every few
weeks). This is easy to do using a lemon juice solution. One part lemon juice to ten parts water.
Fill the iron with the solution, switch on and allow to come to temperature. Press and hold
the self clean button until most of the solution has worked through the iron. Empty remaining
solution from tank then repeat the above procedure with clean water.

Did you know...
In 1933 most homes were heating their
irons over t he gas r ing or s till putting
hot coal i n them. This Swan i ron was
basically a n element w ith a handle,
which plugged straight into a light bulb
socket. And a t a mere 1 4 s hillings
(70p), it meant many households could
own a prestigious Swan Product.
