How to Clean a Filthy Iron

How to Clean a Filthy Iron!!

This is what my iron looked like after many interfacing needed projects. When it was time to iron garments, there was no way I was putting this on the fabric!

I decided to go to the store and see what I could find to clean the iron instead of buying a new one. I found this in the household section of Walmart for less than 2 bucks.  I know there are a lot of people out there that try to find alternatives to cleaning in homes without using chemicals. But they way I see it, if my grandma did these things and she living past 91 it won't kill me either! LOL

I grabbed an old white washcloth that no one uses. One capsule is all you need to clean the iron one time. Make sure you dump all the water out of your iron so the steam is not in use.

Rub the iron over and over the spot. Even getting the sides of the iron that you have no idea how cakes on guck gets on the edges. You can wipe the excess off on other corners of the washcloth and go back to cleaning in the middle until you are satisfied!

Looks brand new again after all was said and done. Now it runs smoothly against the garment fabric that I am using next! I did see recently that someone used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to clean the iron. When it Clara up again I may try that method and revue it as well!

I have so many things that have happened in the last month that I want and need to share! I have just been solo busy with the opportunities that I haven't been able to post! It looks like I have the chance again to get back to posting! 
Stay tuned......

Until Next Time!!
