Iron - Care and Cleaning

Iron - Care and Cleaning


Empty iron while hot so heat will dry out cavity.
Always dry and cool before putting away.

To remove melted plastic and fabrics, heat at low
setting just until material softens, and scrape off with
a smooth piece of wood, a wooden spatula or half a
clothespin. If some remains, make a paste with baking
soda and water and rub or try silver polish. Wipe off
with damp cloth. For a non-stick soleplate, rub gently
with nylon mesh pad and suds. Acetone or nail polish
remover may remove melted polyester.

If steam iron clogs from minerals in water, follow
use-guide directions for cleaning, or use a commercial
iron cleaner. A fine needle in the nozzle hole may open
it again. Sometimes "steaming" will remove lint clogging
the iron; fill with at least 1/4 cup water, set it to
"steam", and hold in the air or set flat on wire rack
over heat and moisture resistant surface like counter
protective mat. Let steam until empty. Using only
distilled water in steam irons helps avoid mineral
