How do I maintain the condition of the cord on my Solano appliance?

When your appliance has cooled, fold the cord in the same way it was in the original packaging. Try to avoid winding it around your hand or the body of the appliance. Please refer to the Care & Maintenance guide on the product’s detail page for more information.

How do I clean my Solano dryer filter?

Air flow can get reduced by a clogged, dirty filter and will create undue strain on your dryer motor, reducing performance and the life of the product. Keeping your dryer filter clean will ensure it is working at optimal performance and will extend the overall life of your motor.
Cleaning Instructions:
Your dryer will have either a stationary or removable filter system. The filter ring and screen allows you to keep your appliance free from entrapped hairs and dust. A quarter turn to the left disconnects the removable filter ring and screen from the dryer. Remove the filter screen and gently clean it with a brush. Replace the filter ring and screen by turning to the right. Remember to clean your filter regularly.

How do I clean the plates on my Solano flat iron?
