4. Fill reservoir with ordinary tap water to max fill
line. DO NOT OVERFILL.

there may be too much water in the unit. For the
best performance, we strongly recommend filling
the reservoir with less water.
7. Attach brush accessory to steamer if desired.
(Please refer to brush attachment section.)

position. Plug into electrical outlet.
9. Within a few minutes, the unit will begin to emit a
continuous flow of steam from the steam vents. The
garment steamer is now ready to use.
10. Hold steamer by its handle when using. Do not
grasp body of unit while steaming garments or while
unit is hot.
11. Direct the flow of steam toward garment to remove
wrinkles. Do not touch fabric with steam head. However,
do not tilt steamer upward as hot water may leak.
If the appliance begins to produce steam more slowly
than usual, if the steamer stops producing steam
and then starts again, you may need to decalcify
your steamer. Decalcification refers to removing the
calcium deposits which form over time on the metal
parts of the Steamer. For best performance from
Conair Garment Steamer, decalcify the unit from time
to time. The frequency depends upon the hardness of
your tap water and how often you use the Steamer.
Note: To reduce or eliminate the occurrence of
mineral build - up, we recommend the use of
de-mineralized or distilled water in the unit.
To decalcify, use a solution of
/3 white vinegar and
/3 water in the water container. Plug the unit into
electrical outlet. Turn to the ON position and run
until half the amount has steamed. Turn the unit to
the OFF position, unplug from electrical outlet, and
allow to sit for 30 minutes.
Remove excess water from the reservoir by lifting the
unit, inverting and pouring the water over sink, and
allowing water to drain from internal reservoir.
Repeat the above procedure as many times as
necessary until a normal steam rate returns, usually 2-3
times. With each repeated cycle, use a fresh solution of
vinegar and water. Run one cycle of fresh, cold water
through the unit at the completion of decalcification,
before using the unit again to steam garments.
Your garment steamer includes a brush attachment
for extra grooming and care of all your clothes.
The brush helps the steam penetrate the fabric by
separating the fibers. You can use the steamer to
effectively remove wrinkles with or without using
the brush attachment. Do not attempt to attach or
remove the brush attachment while unit is steaming
or hot. Wait until unit is completely cool. Place the
brush onto the steamer head by simply pushing the
brush onto the front of the steamer head. The wider
portion of the brush attachment should be toward the
bottom of the unit.

steamer with the other hand. Hold steamer near
the garment/drapery so that steam is directed

to side. To remove stubborn wrinkles, move the
garment steamer very slowly.
