When I get gunk on my iron, I just run the hot iron over a fabric softener sheet and all that glue comes off and my iron is ready to glide across my fabric! In fact, I just keep a fabric softener sheet on my ironing board all ready to go.

This is a wonderful idea! I have always wondered what could be done with the spent dryer sheets.

I tried this on a French dryer sheet product and the durned thing melted!! Do you turn the iron off or are the sheets not all alike? TIA

Oh Boy, I can't wait to try this tip. I have been using the glueyest interfacing lately! Even with a pressing cloth I get a little on my iron. Many thanks.

This is one of my favorite tips [I posted it in March 2004, 'Gunk on Iron']. It doesn't have to be a new sheet, a used one works great too. I was tempted to update it for new members to see, thanks for posting it again.
