One of our valued customers Mike replied “We use your 'Demin. H20' in a fairly expensive BOSCH Steam Iron” and complemented us with “Your past service has been impeccable!” - Let’s take a look at why it is recommended that you use purified water in your steam irons:
Why You Shouldn’t Use Tap Water In Steam Irons
Why can’t you just use tap water in your steam iron? Well, steam irons and steam generators can be damaged by hard water or tap water due to the minerals and salt ions that are found in it. Minerals like calcium cause limescale build up on irons which negatively effects the products performance efficiency over time.
Tap water generally contains numerous impurities, minerals and other organic compounds that can damage items that come into regular contact with water.
What Makes Demineralised Water So Special?
Demineralised water is a special type of purified water that has gone through a process that removes all of its minerals and salt ions. This type of water also goes under the name deionized water.
