    There's something on my iron and it doesn't always come off but, when I really don't want it to sure enough it gets on my fabric. What do you use to clean your iron?

    I fuse for applique and get glue on my iron. It comes off easy by ironing a used dryer sheet!

    Is the bottom teflon? I use glass cleaner believe it or not and it keeps it nice and clean.

    I used some iron cleaner that we found at WM. You empty the water out of the iron, put it on its hottest setting, apply the stuff on a clean washcloth, and rub the iron all over the paste. Then you wipe it on a clean spot on the washcloth and the iron is clean. I had scrubbed the iron with several different products and could never get everything off, but this stuff worked great.

    I really like - Iron- OFF , its sold at JoAnns. I tend to be a bit careless with my iron and fusibles. No matter what I always manage to get some on the iron. This stuff always gets off what ever I manage to get it into.

    Faultless Hot Iron Cleaner is the best I have ever used.
