The iron can easily be broken when limescale and dirt appears on its sole. And not only the iron will suffer, but you might risk in burning your clothes or staining them. That’s why you have to clean it periodically to avoid this from happening.

And I have the perfect solution for this! Prevent burning your clothes with the iron and prolong the iron’s life using the perfect homemade hack! I saw my grandma cleaning the iron, and I was like…wow! I won’t ruin my clothes anymore.

You just need:

– vinegar
– salt

Just mix 3 parts vinegar with 1 part salt, stir well until the salt melts, and warm a bit the composition in the microwave. Take a clean cloth and soak it in this solution, and then rub the iron’s soleplate. As you continue rubbing, the burnt and limescale residues will disappear.
