To wash your dirty iron, plug it in and let it warmth up. Whereas it heats, don a pair of oven mitts or different sturdy heat-protecting gloves to guard your palms from the recent floor. As soon as accomplished, seize a cotton ball (or a Q-tip) and dip it in acetone nail polish remover. Now, unplug the iron and rub the dipped cotton ball over the recent soleplate to eliminate the grime. The nail polish remover will evaporate rapidly, cleansing the amassed filth of the soleplate in its wake.
Rub the floor gently to keep away from ruining the non-stick coating on the soleplate. Do not forget to throw open the home windows within the room to keep away from inhaling the chemical fumes. Alternatively, you possibly can clear the iron outdoors if your loved ones members and pets are notably delicate to those fumes. As soon as the floor is clear, scrub it with a humid material to take away residual polish remover, and say hiya to a glowing iron.
