You are advised to spend 20 minutes on Questions 1-14. First, read the text below and answer Questions 1-8.
Your Moulex Iron
A Filling the reservoir
Your iron is designed to function using tap water. However, it will last longer if you use distilled water.
-- Always unplug the iron before filling the reservoir.
-- Always empty the reservoir after use.
B Temperature and steam control
Your Moulex iron has two buttons which control the intensity of heat produced by the iron. You can, therefore , adjust the temperature of the iron and the amount of steam being given off depending upon the type of fabric being ironed.
-- Turn the steam control to the desired intensity.
-- Turn the thermostat control to the desired temperature.
Important: If your iron produces droplets of water instead of giving off steam, your temperature control is set too low.
C Spray button
This button activates a jet of cold water which allows you to iron out any unintentional creases. Press the button for one second.
D Pressing button
This button activates a super shot of steam which momentarily gives you an additional 40g of steam when needed.
Important: Do not use this more than five successive times.
E Suits etc.
It is possible to use this iron in a vertical position so that you can remove creases from clothes on coathangers or from curtains. Turning the thermostat control and the steam button to maximum, hold the iron in a vertical position close to the fabric but without touching it. Hold down the pressing button for a maximum of one second. The steam produced is not always visible but is still able to remove creases.
Important: Hold the iron at a sufficient distance from silk and wool to avoid all risk of scorching Do not attempt to remove creases from an item of clothing that is being worn, always use a coathanger.
In order that your iron does not become furred up, Moulex have integrated an auto-clean system and we advise you to use it very regularly (1-2 times per month).
-- Turn the steam control to the off position.
-- Fill the reservoir and turn the thermostat control to maximum.
-- As soon as the indicator light goes out, unplug the iron and, holding it over the sink, turn the steam control to auto-clean. Any calcium deposits will be washed out by the steam. Continue the procedure until the reservoir is empty.
