    I'm sorry I'm not familiar with Angelina. If it's something sticky by chance? Something that might leave a film when heated? I have used a hot dampened thick terry cloth and very hot iron. Ironed and pressed and pressed when ironing and steaming. Rubbing the spot with several small strokes more ironing and rubbing. If this hasn't cleaned the iron then finally a little toothpaste to polish. I also used Rowenta cleaner which is excellent. Will take just about anything off the bottom of the iron. After I've said all this I hope it will help! I can't wait to find out what angelina is!!

    the magic eraser has saved my butt several times!! I was making an applique wall hanging and I appliqued a very large piece to my iron face. I let it cool completely and then used the Magic Eraser on it. You do have to dampen the eraser or it will just crumble.

    Oh I have been where you are.. and finally resorted to using a brillo pad. It worked and the mini iron is just fine.

    the easiest way is to get the iron HOT again...the rub it on an old terry wash cloth....remember to ALWAYS use a teflon pressing sheet over you Angelina fibers!

    On the recommendation of someone else on the QB, I bought a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser last week and used it on my yucky iron. I could not believe how clean it got the bottom of the iron. And it worked so quickly too and without severe scrubbing!!! Thanks to whoever originally posted about that and to all who are still passing that info. along.

    I did, the teacher thought it was foil not angelina film so she didn't use the sheet

    I have successfully used plain table salt to clean the iron plate. Get the iron hot, spread a line of salt on a cotton towel and rub the plate over the salt. May need to repeat but it really works.
