Mineral build-up from the water that runs through your Conair Steamer can not only clog the unit, but it can cause uneven bursts of water and steam that can be dangerous. It is important to clean these deposits away regularly, especially if you are using regular tap water in your steamer. How often you will need to clean your Conair Steamer depends on how often you use it, the hardness of the water and whether or not you empty the water out after each use. Fortunately, no matter how quickly the deposits build up, cleaning the steamer is a simple process.
Fill the water tank about 2/3 of the way with distilled water.
Add white vinegar to the water tank until it is full.
Turn on the steamer and allow it to warm up.
Run the steamer until the tank is nearly half empty.
Wait 30 to 60 minutes for the water in the tank to cool down.
Drain the water and vinegar solution out of the tank.
Repeat Steps 1 through 6 two to three times or until the deposits are no longer visible and steam is flowing freely from the steamer.
Fill the water tank completely with distilled water.
Turn on the unit and wait for it to warm up.
Run the steamer until almost all of the water is gone.
Drain any remaining water from the steamer before putting it away.
