The foolproof method
Here’s the clever trick she suggests to facilitate the ironing process and, more importantly, to prevent any residue from your iron from transferring onto your clothes.
Unfortunately, our iron is a delicate appliance that tends to get dirty often. Before learning the trick to clean this appliance, using distilled water while ironing is advisable. This helps safeguard the soleplate from the damaging effects of limescale. However, if that ship has sailed, the solution lies in warm water, white vinegar, and some fine salt. Prepare a mixture of these ingredients in a basin.
You can start by filling a basin with warm water. Then, add white vinegar and salt to the water, stirring until the salt dissolves completely. Now, take a soft microfiber cloth, wet it in the mixture (not too wet), squeeze it slightly, and then pass it over the surface of the iron plate to eliminate all the limescale and excess dirt. Another method is to use a lemon and baking soda. Wait for the iron to cool down, then sprinkle baking soda on a rough sponge and scrub the iron’s plate. Rub a lemon on the plate, squeezing a bit of juice. Both ways will help keep your iron clean.
