Iron Challenges

Remember a couple of months ago when my Oliso started blurping black gunk? Well, fortunately, that didn’t happen again, but the switch to turn the steam on and off did break. That meant almost no steam. There was some residual steam from the water in the tank being hot, but no real steam . 🙁

I contacted them again and this time they wanted me to send a video of the problem. I guess this is the era we live in now. I know I sound like an old fogey, but really. My description was good. NO STEAM.

Fortunately, the issue was verified very quickly and I got another new Oliso.

I think I have said that I love that the Olisos don’t stand up, that they sit flat on the ironing board. It isn’t enough to get me to buy another Oliso. I think I have sent four of them back. I didn’t have to pay for the postage, mostly, but it is inconvenient.

Now I have been using the new Oliso and it smells like a new iron. I hope I am not breathing something toxic. 🙁

  1. My Oliso coughs up gunk from time to time as well! It’s probably 3-4 years old so I cannot return it, but I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one. Still, I love it.

    1. I am sorry to hear that. My friend cleaned my iron with gallons of vinegar and it took forever to get the water to run clear. Have you contacted Oliso? You never know. Thanks for reading!
