I had been making doll clothes for Christmas and using some old nylon pieces -- thought I had tested them with my iron, but apparently it was just heating up -- instant melt away!!! Couldn't budge the gunk with anything and read on this site that ironing over salt on a plain white paper would work -- and it did -- thanks so much to whoever posted that tip. Saved my almost new Rowenta!!!

    Thanks for the idea, I too, have had problems w/gunk build up....from when I attach fusible and some gets on my iron. I've always just rubbed the iron like crazy on the board itself to remove the gunk....that's too much work! Will try the salt next time. Thx!
