I finally got around to hemming my curtains from IKEA, simply done the no-sew method! In the middle of my project, I received a phone call. Usually loosing track of time while talking with a sweet friend is totally harmless. Harmless, unless you finish the call and realize you left the iron face down on the ironing board the entire time you were chatting, making a brown stain on the cover and leaving the iron totally full of GUNK! Even worse when it is 10pm and you need the iron for your hubby’s work shirt in the morning. OOPS! What do you do!?!? Start putting all your pinterest tips to the test!
How to clean an iron!
- Attempt One: Remove gunk from iron, by rubbing the faceplate of iron on low heat. -Result: left the iron a little cleaner.
- Attempt Two: Remove gunk from iron, by rubbing faceplate of iron on low heat on plain paper sprinkled with salt. – Result: left the iron a little cleaner, but salt went everywhere.
Both of these tips helped remove some of the gunk, but the iron still had a layer that wasn’t budging. I ran out of patience hunting on pinterest so I started searching through my cabinets. My hunt was productive. I found something that works GREAT with ZERO effort!
- Attempt Three: It worked! Remove burnt-on gunk from an iron by rubbing faceplate of warm or cold iron with a damp magic eraser. Total Success!
