My old tube of Clean & Glide Iron Cleaner is all dried up. My Rowenta iron is not teflon (it's a silver soleplate) and I don't think I should be using an SOS pad to clean it.
How do you clean your irons?
I don't know what's on it, but my first choice is a fabric softener sheet.. I prefer the unscented as the scented ones really get strong when heated
Get another tube of Hot Iron Cleaner. Mine is from Faultless and I got it at Wally World.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
Make sure that Dryer Sheet has been used otherwise it does not work as well....love the dryer sheets for iron issues,sure makes it go fast after you use it.
Just googled my question and a lot of people said that Magic Eraser did the trick for them. Has anyone here tried that? They didn't say whether the iron should be hot or cold.
CA Lori, I would think it would have to be cold, I do like the magic eraser and will have to try it on my iron, the soleplate is a mess and I can't figure out how it got so bad. Pat
I've used magic eraser- worked well but my favorite is a dryer sheet.
I did the Magic Eraser trick. It worked. Tried it first with the iron cold, it removed quite a bit. Then I turned on the iron for a couple of minutes and then turned it off--it got off all the remaining gunk. I do have one "dimple" that still has a dark spot on it but that's not going to be a problem since it's concave and won't be touching the fabric.
Next time, I'm going to try a dryer sheet. Thanks guys!
this is rather agressive but I warm the iron and take it outside and spray the bottom with ez-off oven cleaner, being careful not to get it on the plastic sides...just wipe off gunk with a paper towel. Then rinse with a damp paper towel,clean in just a few minutes!
