In all the years you’ve been running your iron over your freshly laundered clothes, sheets and tablecloths, have you ever thought about cleaning the iron? Don't worry: Here's a super-easy way to get your iron looking fresh, new and, most importantly, clean again.
What You Need:
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon toothpaste
- 2 teaspoons white vinegar
Step 1: In a small bowl mix the baking soda, toothpaste and vinegar together until well combined.
Step 2: Turn your iron on a low heat. Dip the washcloth into the cleaning mixture and gently scrub along the bottom surface of the iron. (You can add a bit more vinegar if needed.)
Keep scrubbing until the bottom plate looks as shiny and clean as the day you bought it...what was that? Ten years ago?
