Although ironing may not be your favourite task to do, keeping a clean iron will make this chore a whole lot easier. Mineral deposit build ups from water and the starch you spray on your clothes, often leave a gunky residue on the plate of the iron. If done so regularly, irons are easy to clean.

Choosing the perfect iron for you largely depends on what you use your iron for. For some people (such as seamstresses), an iron can cost up to $800, and for others, ironing isn’t a common thing, meaning a cheaper $10 alternative is more appropriate. So, whether you have a $15 or $600 iron, it’s still important to clean your iron, to prevent damage to your clothing. So what are you waiting for? Follow our tips below, to get your iron looking and working like new again:

  1. Mix Water and Baking Soda: Make a paste combining 2 tablespoons of baking soda with 1 tablespoon of water.
  2. Apply Water & Baking Soda Paste to Iron: Use either a spatula or any other utensil that has a flat surface, spreading the paste onto any areas that have mineral deposits.
  3. Wipe the iron clean: with a damp cloth or sponge, wipe the paste off.
  4. Steam Holes:Dip a q-tip into distilled water and insert into iron’s steam holes.
  5. Re-fill the water reservoir and pour distilled water into the reservoir until it’s ⅓ full. (If a stronger solution is required, mix ¼ cup of white vinegar with ¾ cup of distilled water).
  6. Turn off steam.
  7. Then, turn iron onto its highest setting and steam-iron a clean cloth for a few minutes (this lets the clean water flush out any remaining mineral deposits from the vents).
  8. After this has been completed, pour out the distilled water solution.
  9. Allow the iron to sit (preferably on kitchen sink/bench as any residual sediment may fall out).

So there you have it! You will have a clean iron in no time!

    Thanks for your publication. I would also love to comment that the first thing you will need to carry out is determine if you really need credit score improvement. To do that you need to get your hands on a duplicate of your credit history. That should really not be difficult, because government makes it necessary that you are allowed to acquire one totally free copy of your real credit report yearly. You just have to ask the right persons. You can either look into the website for your Federal Trade Commission or perhaps contact one of the leading credit agencies specifically.
