Tips for Tuesday

Tips for cleaning an iron:

Cleaning the vent holes - Many times the vent holes in the bottom of the iron will become clogged. Take a pipe cleaner and clean out each hole individually. Always empty steam irons after each use to prevent clogging.

I put aluminum foil under the ironing board cover. It reflects heat onto the garment as you iron and cuts ironing time.

To help covers last longer and stay clean longer, spray them with spray starch once the cover is on the board and iron the starch in well.
