jakimo Thankx! but how do you de-scale them.?

See click here dont know if this is any help.

Our iron TEFAL has an indicator to tell when to clean and this is done by flushing out with water through a special access port. Another tip is to allow the iron to heat up to linen temperature and the turn temp control down to synthetic then press steam button and some of the blockage is loosened. Our Tefal does not have filters which I suspect MR do

Thankyou for that! ive emailed MR's! & the link you provided has shown me its a large scale issue with Morphy Richards Irons so i WILL be avoiding them in the future! thankx again!!

The descaler usualy has full descaling instructions on box

with the one I use you stand the electric iron base in the descaling solution overnight

Probably a scale issue with most irons depending on your local water supply.
Doesn't anyone use Distilled or De-Ionised water any more?

I use previously boiled water from the kettle, (after it has cooled down) or the saved water from condenser dryer. Not had a problem with iron scaling up for last 15 years, (same iron).
