Things you need.
2- Mr. Clean magic erasers.
3- If you are sensitive to smells, use a mask.
4- The iron has to be very hot and unplugged for the cleaner to work. You have to be very fast when cleaning an iron, if not the cleaner will get dry instantly. You can also use a protective glove so you don't get burned.

I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial, feel free to share!
