Regular cleaning of your iron will help prevent the frustration this can cause and make your iron more efficient. If the soleplate of your iron is sticking you can clean it with DYC white vinegar. Some burnt on marks may still remain but it will glide over your fabric more easily. TIP: Check your iron instruction booklet in case the manufacturer recommends against the use of vinegar to clean the use of which could void the warranty.
