Water to use -- Rowenta steam iron
Just received Rowenta DX8800 steam iron as gift. Works wonderfully. Like it. However, what's the deal with prohibition of distilled water? RO water?
Throughout my life I've always thought distilled water was best for steam-generating appliances. Rowenta manual is quite specific about avoiding distilled water but does not say reason why. Their web-site is no help other than to repeat the prohibition. Does anyone here know why?
