It is common for scale to build up inside the iron especially when hard water is used in the tank. There are many solutions when it comes to cleaning the sole plate available online. I have seen examples of people using white vinegar as this is effective in removing scale that may have built up inside the iron for example:
On a medium heat setting, evaporate a mixture of white vinegar and water in equal parts in to the iron’s water tank when it’s approximately a third full. It should evaporate in less than 10 minutes. Rid the tank off the vinegar and unremoved scale by filling the tank again with clean water and allow to evaporate. Once this has been done, wipe the sole plate with a paper towel and don’t forget the steam vents taking care as it may still be hot.

You can use tap water in this iron. The manufacturer recommends that if your water is very hard, you should mix 50% tap water with 50% distilled water.
