Still-Clean is a crystal used for dissolving
mineral deposits. When used properly this crystal can help
remove unsightly mineral deposits in water distillers, humidifiers,
steam irons, coffee makers and much more. Still-Clean helps
maintain energy efficiency of water using appliances and will
ultimately increase the life of these appliances.
The following directions can be used for removing mineral
deposits from distillers, humidifiers, coffee pots, or any
metal, glass, ceramic, porcelain, or most plastic water using
- Turn off or unplug distiller.
- Fill distiller with water to a level slightly higher than
the mineral deposit.
- Add 4 tablespoons of Still-Clean per gallon of water
- Allow solution to stand 12 hours.
- Drain solution and rinse thoroughly.
Coffee Makers: Mineral deposits will form an insulating
barrier around the heating element causing it to burn out
prematurely and preventing the water from reaching it's desired
temperature. To clean, dissolve 2 tablespoons of Still-Clean
to 1 quart of water and add to coffee maker and set for brewing.
Repeat this procedure using plan tap water to rinse.
Humidifiers: Mineral deposits will form around the
walls of a humidifier caused by water evaporation. To remove
deposits, dissolve 4 tablespoons of Still-Clean per 1 gallon
of water. Fill humidifier with this solution to just above
the mineral deposits and let sit for 12 hours. Empty the humidifier
and rinse with tap water.
Steam Irons: Mineral deposits will clog the steam
holes of an iron preventing proper ironing. To clean, dissolve
2 teaspoons of Still-Clean to 1 cup of water and pour into
steam iron while in an upright position. Place steam iron
into a heat resisitant dishpan, plug in and let steam for
2-3 minutes. DO NOT EXCEED 3 MINUTES. Unplug! Place iron in
a horizontal position supported above the dishpan and allow
solution to drip out of steam holes for 30 minutes. Wipe away
any traces of liquid from the bottom of the iron.
