Anybody have any tips on how to clean the hairspray or styling product build-up off of the blades of a flat iron?

I don't know much about this kind of stuff, but I would just take a wet washcloth and scrub at it.

Avoid using abrasive solvents when cleaning your ceramic flat iron. However, there are some household items that you can turn to if you run out of your regular professional thermal tool cleanser. Nail-polish remover, ammonia, spray-on oven cleaner and rubbing alcohol can each break down hardened styling product on your flat iron. Saturate a cotton ball with your solvent of choice and use this to wipe away product buildup. When you are finished, use a damp paper towel to wipe down your ceramic tool; this will clean off any remaining solvent, as you don't want to get it on your hair the next time you use your flat iron.

If you use nail polish remover make sure it's the non acetone kind as this will eat away plastic if there is any on your iron.

Before I retired as a hairdresser, we always used 4- 0 (4oooo) steel wool pads to clean our curling irons. Be sure to get the four oh as the other numbers can scratch.
