Notions: Anti-Calcium Iron

Threads magazine - 186 - Aug./Sept. 2016 Issue
Article Image

This was originally featured in the Notions department of Threads #186 (August/September 2016).

The T-fal Powerglide steam iron features an easy-to-use, removable calcium collector to extract calcium deposits left by tap water. In addition, the iron has an enameled ceramic soleplate with a durable two-layer coating for ease in gliding over fabrics, as well as even heat and steam diffusion. The Powerglide iron is designed with many active steam holes to deliver 50 percent more steam throughout its soleplate, including at the tip and along the center. Its steam burst button is positioned ergonomically under the handle, and the steam function performs vertically for use on hanging garments. The iron has a pointed precision tip, an extralarge water inlet for easier reservoir filling, and an auto-off warning light.

Available from for $44.99.
