Tips to help you
save energy
Steam production consumes the most energy.
To help minimise the energy used, follow the
advice below:
•	 Start by ironing the fabrics that require the
lowest ironing temperature.
Check the recommended ironing temperature
in the label on the garment.
•	 Regulate the steam according to the selected
ironing temperature, following the instructions
in this manual.
•	 Try to Iron the fabrics while they are still damp
and reduce the steam setting. Steam will be
generated from the fabrics rather than the iron.
If you tumble dry your fabrics before ironing
them, set the tumble drier on the ‘iron dry’
•	 If the fabrics are damp enough, turn off the
steam regulator completely.
F Storing the appliance
1.	Always allow the appliance to cool down
before storing it.
Set the main power button to the “0” position
(the red light will go off) and disconnect the
mains cable.
