the inside
To extend the life of your steam
station and to avoid a build up of
scale, it is essential that you rinse
out the boiler after every 10 refills or
once a month. If you live in a hard
water area increase the frequency of
cleaning. Do not use chemical
descaling agents or vinegar as they
may damage your appliance.
Clean the boiler making sure it has
been allowed to cool overnight first.
Turn the steam station upside down
and pull back the flap covering the
boiler cap
cap using a coin and empty out any
water. Add one cup of tap or filtered
water and shake the appliance then
empty out all the water. Repeat this
operation until the water from the
boiler comes out clear and clean.
When cleaning is finished pour
500ml fresh tap or filtered water into
the boiler and screw the boiler cap
back on again without using
excessive force. Replace the cover.
The unit is now ready to use.
