Use Salt to Clean an Iron

Clean Your Iron With This Surprising Kitchen Staple

Your iron is supposed to be a helpful tool, but sometimes things happen. You run your hot iron over a button too long resulting in a melty mess or you smooth over a stain, which creates build-up on your iron. All this gunk might transfer onto another article of clothing the next time you smooth out wrinkles. Keep it clean with the help of a basic ingredient you have in your pantry — salt!

To fix things fast, sprinkle a sheet of paper with salt, and then run the warm iron over the salt, which helps remove stains and any lingering residue from ironing your clothes. After a couple of runs, unplug the iron, and once it's cooled, wipe clean once with a soft cloth.
