My mom also used the wax paper method to remove residue from an iron, with one difference, she sprinkled salt on the wax paper before running iron over it. This works as an abrasive. (03/09/2007)

Removing Starch from an Iron

There's an excellent product in a medium small blue tube from a better hardware store especially for this purpose that works better than anything I can think of. It seems to be liquefied paraffin? which takes only 1/4 inch squeeze to a hot iron and a paper towel to wipe off the scorch as it instantly melts. Hope you can find it. Wax paper doesn't seem to work as well for me. God bless and help you in this. : ) (03/11/2007)

I just cleaned mine with a "Mr. Clean Magic Eraser" pad. Worked like magic! (05/13/2007)
