do you just put the demineralizer in the plastic jug part. I bought mine from cleaners supply and it came in a plastic sealed bag.

Yes. Just pour it from the plastic bag into the bottle. It may take a moment to settle.

Yes, and you need to take a good look at the color so that you know what it looks like new. It needs to be replaced when it gets brown.
Wawak, which used to be Atlanta Thread has a good price on it.

i tried to make sure it was over the filter part but once i added the water it settled below (the consew gravity feed iron seems to have a raised filter) does this mean i should have 2 pkgs for it?

If I understand you correctly, the mineralizer has seeped under the filter. If that's true, then some mineralizer will be fed down the tube into your iron. Be sure that the filter is seated firmly at the bottom of the bottle, and that all of the mineralizer stays above the filter. The water then passes through the mineralizer and through the filter, and only clear water should be feeding into the tube toward your iron. You should only need 1 package of mineralizer at a time, and then change it as needed.
