clean iron This was AMAZING!!! I am an iron-er, yes, I iron our clothes every single day and I've probably gone through 4 since I've been married. My newest one, a Rowenta, has a steel plate and it was constantly getting gunk burned into it. I tried a baking soda paste (it bombed) and the dryer sheet pin (bomb) so I finally tried this AND IT WAS AMAZING!!!! Do it!! ~JennPennell
HOW TO CLEAN YOUR IRON: 1. Sprinkle a generous amount of salt onto your ironing board 2. Turn your iron to the highest setting, ensuring that the steam option is set to OFF 3. When heated, iron over the salt--what happens is that the dirt sticks to the salt, leaving nothing but a wonderfully, shiny iron! It is good to do this every so often to prevent debris or dirt from your iron melting or sticking to your articles of clothing!
You basically make a water and baking soda paste, rub it all over the iron, wipe off with a damp cloth, clean the holes with a q-tip, fill the iron with a vinegar solution, and steam out the vinegar and water until your iron is clean.
How to Clean an Iron: First, put a little white vinegar on a cloth and gently scrub the surface of the iron. If it isn't too dirty then this may be all you need to do. If that doesn't get enough of the gunk off, mix a tablespoon of baking soda with a drop of white vinegar and stir it to create a paste. Put the paste on your cloth and use this to scrub the iron thoroughly. If that doesn't do the job soak a clean cloth in white vinegar and place it over the sole plate. Leave for about an hour…
