When your iron accidentally gets the glue from fusibles, wonder under, or even melted plastic stuck on the bottom, just run your hot iron over an old dryer fabric softener sheet you've saved. The gunk will stick to the dryer sheet and your iron will be good as new. Then throw the sheet away.

And, this also makes your sewing area smell sooooo good! I even keep my dryer sheets after use and keep them in a drawer in my sewing area to use as you describe. I've also used them (after using in dryer 1 or 2 times) for stabilizer on embroidery areas - then cut away the excess.
