There are few things more satisfying in life than slipping into a set of crisp, white, freshly-pressed sheets. But wait – is that a rust spot from the iron?!

An experience this therapeutic shouldn't be disturbed by a silly spot. Treat your iron and bedding with a few simple steps.

Avid use of your iron can lead to rusting and unsightly spots on bedding and clothing.

  • Pour a mixture of water and ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar into the iron and let it sit overnight.

  • If your iron has a steam option, run the water and white vinegar solution through its vents to ensure a thorough clean.

  • Rinse the dispenser well once finished.

*It is best to clean your iron once every two months. You can get by cleaning once every three to four months if you iron less frequently, however!



  • Pretreat: Apply Stain Solution directly to the “rusted” area and gently work it into the fabric. Sprinkle All-Purpose Bleach Alternative onto the solution and mix with a Stain Brush to create a powerful cleaning paste.

  • Presoak: Create a bath hot (or boiling) water and 1 capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative and leave your items to soak for at least 30 minutes. The bleach alternative will work to remove stains and dinginess while whitening and brightening.

  • Wash: Machine wash as normal with the Signature Detergent selecting hot water.

  • Dry: Machine dry only once satisfied with stain removal.

*The All-Purpose Bleach Alternative should not be used on woolens, silks, or leathers.
