What you will need to clean an iron

An aspirin

A stainless steel scouring pad

Paper towel or a cotton cloth



Steps to follow to clean an iron

Plug in the iron.

When the iron is hot place an aspirin on the scoring pad trying not to drop it.

Gently rub the pad over the area of the iron you wish to clean. The hot iron will give off a strong smell, so you should do this in a well ventilated place.

The aspirin will melt quickly, so rub it on the base of the iron and clean the waste produced using a paper towel.

Repeat this procedure several times until the iron is completely clean.

Don't forget to switch off the iron.
