I don't what I must have done in a past life, but I need yet ANOTHER new iron. Ugh. I had a Rowenta Advancer ( hated the automatic shut off ) but dropped it one time too many. Now I have a Rowenta Focus. Its been fine for about 8 months and now the tank is leaking up towards the front ( whether I use steam or not ). That makes 3 irons in 3 years. I'm afraid to use it on whites now. I swear I haven't dropped it once. Really. LOL. So I begin the search for a new one. GAH. I think I may have to graduate to a new system.
