Iron. Did you burn something onto your iron?
Submitted by J.M.
A tip I learned from my mom that really works!! If you've burned anything on your iron, you'll need a brown paper bag (like they put your groceries in at the supermarket) and table salt.
- Turn your iron to it's hottest setting.
- Put the brown paper bag on your ironing board and pour a generous amount of salt on the bag.
- Then rub the iron around on the salt in circular motions.
If it doesn't all come off the first time, toss out the first bit of salt and re-salt the bag.
