When your Iron plate gets all Icky/Grimy. You can use a Dry magic eraser to clean the plate of a cool iron. Just wipe gently, and it Works Great! I use heat/bond alot and med. weight fusable interfacing, and it gets all the grimy/sticky stuff off. Leaving my Iron nice and shiny!

They are made by Mr Clean. I'm not for sure what it is...But, if you've got crayon on walls, it will take it off, skid marks on floors, it will take it off. They usually come in 2 packs, they look kinda like a sponge, but without the pores. I hope you can find them in the UK, they really do work "magic"!!

I have these "Magic Erasers" in my house and love them for all sorts of cleaning. Now my iron too! TFS!

Thanks for this tip. We keep Magic Eraser in our home for other tasks, so wouldn't need to make a special trip for iron cleaner.

Thank you - great tip. I do the same cruel things to my iron. This will be very useful.

I can't seem to find a match for this in a search. Is it Mr Clean magic eraser?
