    Any Kim and Aggies out there?

    I have some black stuff on the soleplate of me iron and want to remove it.

    Granted,I don't use it much,well as little as is humanely possible:giggle: but I'm sure you used to be able to get something that cleaned this sort of thing from yer iron!

    It looked like a pritt stick,I think,and you heated the iron and put this stuff on.Am I making sense?:?

    Anyways....does anyone know where I could get some of this stuff from,or failing that have any handy tips to get the black stuff off me iron!

    Thanks guys:)

    That's the stuff!!:thumbsup:

    I wasn't going mad then:whistling:

    It's a rowenta iron with a stainless steel soleplate,brushed not polished.The black stuff is from a t shirt with nylon content being ironed on too hot a setting.

    Had one of those and dropped it(well it got dropped more than once!),took a chunk off the soleplate.

    Didn't really care too much for it,spent £40 on this puppy and it's a great iron....it's just that I'm not very domesticated:oops:

    dont know how quickly you need it, but have you tried ebay?

    my little one decided to plug in my iron upsatirs in my bedroom, and after about half hour i thought what on earth is that smell, went upsatirs and he had plugged it in and soleplate down on my carpet, i lifted the iron off and there was a lovely iron print left it was right down to the hessian backing on the carpet, but the carpet was easily removed from the iron, iron cost me £40 carpet cost me £800, kids eh, and guess what, i still havent replaced either:giggle:

    Haven't replaced the kids????:w00t:

    Don't do ebay,but it's not urgent,the stuff has been there for weeks so will probably order from that link you provided or google it now I know it's available.

    no, i gave them away, didnt want to replace them, the link i posted only charge £1 delivery so not too bad, maybe buy a few:whistling:

    use a ceramic hob scraper when switched on. Its won't scratch or just rub and scrub.:)

    Rub Soap On Hot Iron Let It Dry Then Wipe Off

    Its Worked For Me And I Ended Up With A Very Clean Iron!!
