Tips for cleaning curling irons. Post your ideas.
For burnt on hair spray on your curling irons I used some easy off oven cleaner. I just sprayed the irons and let the solution sit for about 30 minutes (longer if they are really really dirty.) Then I used a copper pot scraper and presto! Clean just like new.

When I usd a curling iron, I used rubbing alcohol to clean them. With the iron off and cold to the touch of course!
Try Steel Wool....I use this to clean mine, and the curling iron looks brand new.
try some lemon juice!:)
How do I get hairspray off a curling iron?
By Beverly from Oswego, NY
Have you tried swabbing it with alcohol (make sure it's unplugged first!), I think the alcohol may dissolve the hairspray.
I also use alcohol too. I take an old sock and put the alcohol on it and it dissolves the hairspray.
As a retired hairstylist of thirty years I can honestly tell you the easiest way is to plug in the curling iron and have on the highest heat setting. Take a rag and make sure it's triple folded (to keep you from getting burned), wet it, squeeze most but not all of the water out. 'Unplug' the curling iron and immediately start wiping the iron with the damp rag. You may need to do it two or three times the first time out but after that it will only take once if you maintain on a regular basis :-) The same thing works for a clothes iron too ;-)
I use shampoo on a slightly wet cloth to clean hairspray off of things. A little goes a long way.

Does anyone have any ideas on cleaning curling irons? Mine work fine, but have dried hairspray and setting lotion on them. They look terrible.
