We got three surefire ways to keep your iron operating in tip-top shape.

Once it gets warm just crumple up the dryer sheets and slowly scrub the gunk right off your soleplate.
If it gets too dirty or if your fingers just start to get hot, just switch to a new dryer sheet, that’s why we have a pile.
And there you go, the gunk just slides right off.
