Lakeland Steam Generator Iron 3 "Surprise fault" Dolleen 17 April 2012 First use fine but second use left brown stains deposited on laundry. Looked at reviews on other generators i.e. tefal ,bosch, philips etc in wide price range, to discover this is a common problem A client uses equal parts water/vinegar to clear out sediment deposits which solves problem on her expensive model. Contacting Lakeland I agreed to 3 month trial of appliance with no recurrence of spasmodic staining. Lakeland's co-operation and courtesy has as always been exemplary I find. A note from the team Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry for the problems and are pleased that, working with you, we seem to have resolved the problem of sporadic staining.
