Limescale has always been your worst enemy during ironing: your iron becomes less efficient and wears out faster and you can no longer get a perfectly smooth shirt without creases. But worry not, help is at hand. Tefal has invented an exclusive system, the Calc Collector, which collects limescale in your iron and steam generator and guarantees long-lasting steam performance.

Tefal innovates to effectively fight limescale

Did you know? An iron clogged up by the limescale that occurs naturally in water produces less steam: the benefits of ironing are lost, and you can wave goodbye to perfect results! To ensure that your ironing goes smoothly, the Calc Collector system collects limescale directly within your iron or steam generator. The collector can be removed, making it easy to clean. This system guarantees long-lasting performance of your appliance.

Your steam generator will never let you down! Remove the collector in no time at all and wave goodbye to limescale. Even the smallest particles are collected: you will find no trace of limescale in your iron. Gone are the troubles of reduced steam power: ironing is easier, saving you time and giving you peace of mind.

Fruit and vegetable juices, true magic potions

Carrot: you already know that the colour orange forms an essential part of your cooking. This is down to using oranges full of vitamin C, as well as carrots. Carrot juice is an excellent source of vitamin A, and above all, it is easy to digest. It provides vitamins B, C, D, E, G, and K while simplifying digestion, and is also consumed for the potassium and sodium it contains.

Beetroot: adds its radiant colour to all your juices, but does much more than that. It is recommended that you drink it regularly, particularly for its beneficial effects on red blood cells.

Celeriac juice: in addition to a delicious taste which blends perfectly with carrots, it is recommended for its sodium content and its alcalising function.

Cucumber juice: an excellent diuretic, it is also perfect in all types of juices thanks to its water content. It can be combined with numerous fruits. Try cucumber-kiwi juice, for example!

Spinach juice: one of the stars of health juices. You can combine it with carrot, but also apple and/or kiwi. It is recommended when you want to cleanse your body and help it to restart, or as a springtime cure, for example.

Thanks to your juices, you can combine healthy cooking with creativity, while benefiting every day from the nutritional benefits of fresh, seasonal foods full of goodness. Say yes to Color Therapy!
