The steam button of my steam iron is rather sticky and does not come up when I press it unless I pull it up myself.
How do I clean it?

Maybe a little alcohol on a Q-tip?
Editor's Note Q-Tip is a brand name for a cotton swab. A cardboard stick with cotton on the ends.
I dropped my iron on the carpet which consisted of man made materials and the iron immediately melted the carpeting to the bottom of my iron. I took a paper towel with a generous amount of everyday rubbing alcohol and wiped the bottom and it peeled right off. The rest of the cleaning needed a bit of elbow grease but it cleaned beautifully. My iron was still warm to the touch so do not know if that was a plus factor or not. Don't be skimpy with the alcohol.
