All Iron soleplates are made out of high quality materials. All Rowenta soleplates are durable and ensure an efforless glide that makes ironing quicker and easier. Simple, regular cleaning will keep the soleplate in its original condition and protect your investment. The specially formulated cream in this kit can be used on all types of soleplates to remove the draggy coating caused by excess starch and detergent build-up as well as burned-on synthetics. It is also idea at removing melted webs, fusibles, iron-on inter-facings and trims. One of the best iron on cleaners I have used!!
