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
Pour salt on your ironing board (Perhaps cover with a pillow case or something to make clean up easier), and then iron the salt with the steam option off. The dirt on your iron will stick to the salt, making for an easy clean.
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!
