Follow up the ironing instructions on the garment label. If there is not any instruction label, but you know what kind of the fabric is, please refer to the fabric setting chart described in this instruction manual. 2. The fabric setting chart is only valid for plain fabrics and not for materials to which finishes, glosses etc, have been applied. Textile to which some kind of finish has been applied (gloss, crinkle, relief etc.) is best ironed at lower temperature. 3. First sort laundry according to ironing temperature setting guide: wool with wool, cotton with cotton, etc. 4. The iron heats up more quickly than it cools down. Therefore, start ironing articles that need to be ironed at the lowest temperature, such as those made of synthetic fibres. 5. If the fabric consists of various kinds of fibres, always select the temperature required by the most delicate fibres, i.e. the lowest temperature. If, for example, an article consists of 60% polyester and 40% cotton, according to the fabric setting chart it should be ironed for polyester and without steam. 6. If you do not know what kind of fabric the article is made of, iron a piece of the material which is not visible when you wear to find out the appropriate temperature for your articles. 7. Pure woollen fabrics (100% wool) should be ironed with the iron setting to steam ironing position. It is advisable to set the temperature control button to “Max” position and use a dry pressing cloth. 8. When steam ironing woollen fabrics, shiny patches may occur. You may prevent this by turning the article inside out and ironing the reverse side. 9. After using of steam ironing for cotton fabrics, do not iron articles required by lower temperature (such as nylon etc.) Immediately. It is advisable to adjust the temperature button to the lower setting, waiting for about 2-4 minutes till the power indicator light turn off, and then you can start ironing.
