    I used to just turn it on really soak an old towel and run the iron over it. If it was really bad then I would use a degreaser if the wet towel didn't work.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    50/50 distilled water and white viniger. Pour it into the resivior, let steam, then use steamer until its empty.
    If you want my opinion on your relationship or life issues, just ask Villanelle!

    Also if you NEED to you can use baking soda (abrasive, but will not scratch) and a damp rag to scour the exterior but make sure to steam afterwards to get all the bits of baking soda out.

    heat the iron, then sprinkle salt on a brown paper bag & iron over it.

    my 4-h sewing leader taught me that waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in the day. if you burn something onto the iron, this usually works to take it off.
