    Mom used to put salt on a brown paper sack and swirl the hot iron around on it. It worked for her. Non-teflon iron though.

    There is also stuff for cleaning your iron sole plate. Can buy it at Walmart, etc. Works good. Some items are more pricey than others. :)

    I buy a tube of cleaner made especially for irons. It has always worked well for me.

    I used some cleaner in a tube too. Got it on sale at Joanns and just keep it on hand now. Ever iron the wrong side of a fusible?

    I use a fine smooth round honing stone. Iron glides like new every time I use it.
