My Philips steam iron leaks brown water or white flakes

When your Philips steam iron is leaking brown water or causes brown/white stains on your garment, it is time to descale it. Please find out here how this works.

Perfumed water was used in the iron

Perfumed water causes lime scale and organic residues to remain in your iron and this will cause brown water leakage and white flakes/particles on your garment.

Please, descale your steam iron to remove limescale. Find all descaling information for your Philips iron here.

Scale can cause brown water or white flakes

Your Philips Steam Iron needs to be descaled.

The Calc-Clean process for your Philips Iron removes most limescale and organic residues.

In some cases (such as when hard water is used) you may still experience the problem after descaling once. If descaling once doesn't solve the problem, please perform the descaling process again.
