Results of the home remedy iron cleaning tests
I wrote a couple of days ago that I had gummed up the soleplate of my iron, so I looked at YouTube (all the answers in the world) and tried a couple that seemed like they would work. Both had you set the iron to it's hottest level. Then I used a wet Mr. Clean pad, which mostly worked but still had a little gummy stuff left on the edges. Then, with trepidation, I tried what seemed the most harsh. I used a brown paper bag sprinkled with salt. To my surprise it worked like a charm and did not scratch the surface of my iron. So now I have to get back to work.
