    Guess when I made that project before I used a pressing cloth and a lower setting. I did get lucky, used scrub daddy, magic eraser, razor blade & thumb nail............lucky me......Taa daa......calla

    I know the feeling. I have done it noend of times hen doing applique.I hate using sheets to press on as I always move the. Piece I'm appliqueing on. I use the tip of the iron on the applique piece. To hold before pressing. I can't do this with a sheet so sticky iron again.

    I've seen those scrub daddy's. Do they really work as they advertise? Glad your iron is cleaned now :-)

    sewnsewer2 well, I used the scrub daddy in my shower tile......had improvement but not like on TV. We have a well with a multitude of issues; iron, calcium etc. But I have only used it once. As for the iron I felt I had nothing to lose . I purchased the scrub daddy at an area grocery store in the plumbing aisle. calla

    I use an unscented dryer sheet and let the iron warm up slightly and rub sticky stuff off. I read this tip somewhere.

    what we did for our well to help remove the iron and some of the other stuff, installed a sand filter . A pool or spa supply place can tell you how to install. They are used on some pools.

    I will have to try that. I have a scorch mark on my Rowenta when the iron scorch some P&B muslin.
