This is how to clean your iron!
Even though a lot of people despise ironing, it’s a task that’s simply part of life. You can hardly turn up for work in a wrinkled blouse! Unfortunately, your iron will become scorched on the bottom after using it for some time. But we’ve got a trick for that!
It’s very annoying: after a while the bottom of your iron (also called the ‘soleplate’) changes colour, and can become scorched. You might not want to use it anymore when it’s this dirty; what if you stain your beautiful white blouse?! Luckily, there’s a very simple trick you can use to clean the soleplate of your iron within no time at all. It’ll be back to the colour it should be. Fun fact: we’re sure you already own the magic ingredient!
How to do it:
The cheap and common ingredient we’re talking about is salt. It’ll make your iron look as good as new! Take an old tea towel (or old (white) T-shirt) and put it on the ironing board. Next, sprinkle a generous amount of salt onto the tea towel. Iron the salt-covered tea towel (without steam!). You’ll see that the soleplate of your iron will be squeaky clean again! Handy trick, right?
