Good afternoon. I iron and starch my clothes every day. Recently, I got burnt starch on my iron, and I cannot use it. Does anyone know how to get that burnt starch of the iron? Please Help. Thank you.

I found this website that might help you!

Their soultion is: Try heating equal parts of vinegar and salt in a small pan. Rub the solution on a cool iron, and wipe dry.

While my iron was cold I used an sos pad to clean it then I buffed it up, looks brand new.

Dip a wet cloth in baking soda and clean your iron then rinse it off with clean water.

Heat the iron to a nonsteam, medium heat before cleaning. Sprinkle a generous layer of table salt over a brown grocery bag (use one that has no writing on the top surface).

The salt is abrasive and will remove residue. Iron over the salt to remove starch and debris from the surface of the iron.

DON'T use sodium hypochlorite, undiluted, and ammomium hydrochloride.

Does anyone know how to remove a stain from clothing from iron residue? It is a white collar.

A Mr Clean Magic Eraser did the job for me!

To get spray starch or sizing off of an iron, set the iron for dry ironing (no steam) and maximum temperature. When good and hot, rub it firmly on a wet terry cloth towel.

The gunk will steam off the iron and transfer to the towel. This is better than steel wool pads, which can get rust and soap gunk down into the steam vents which will release on clothing later.
