  1. After years of fighting the “what water is best issue”, finally, I just gave up and every new iron I have purchased in the last 10 years has never had water in it. Period. Just use a spritzer bottle. Spray it directly on the fabric or for steam, on the press cloth. Viola! No more water issues 🙂
