If your iron could use a little bit of love and care, then we’ve got a really easy yet effective trick for you to try. When things like dirt and debris start to stick to your iron, then you run the risk of having those things melt onto your clothing. Prevent this from happening by trying this trick from A Mum in the Oven when gunk builds up on your iron.

Here’s what you do:

  1. Generously sprinkle salt onto your ironing board.
  2. Put your iron on its highest setting and make sure that you’re set the steam option to “OFF.”
  3. Once your iron is heated, iron over the salt. The dirt on the iron will stick to the salt and you’ll be left with a shiny iron once again!
