In an earlier post to the boys, I advised them to use only distilled water in the clothes iron. Back in the day that was the commonly accepted practice, but evidently different manufacturers recommend mostly tap water and spring water now. Who knew? Not I. That is, until I started researching irons recently. An Internet search brings up a lot of the old distilled water advice, but that contradicts most of the manufacturer's instructions I've been reading. So there ya go.
