and here is the clean iron!
Yikes.. we are on the run up to christmas already so that means its time for me to do a special project! If you were following my blog last year you would know I did a project 'Santa of the Day' project photographing one of my tree ornaments each day for 24 days. (I collect Santas to put you in the picture). Well this years project will be a little bit more crafty. I hope to give you 24 hint and tips about some aspect of sewing. Could be quilt related, might not be ..not sure yet .. I haven't planned out the whole 24 days! Could end after a few days even but anyway let us begin today with a tip about 'mucky irons'. Watch the video of me (without laughing please)to see my sterling tip about using HOBBRITE!
After doing the vid I read the back and it looks like Hobbrite is a UK brand only. More info here at their website. However I am sure similiar products exist in the US and overseas. It is a very gentle cleanser that removes burnt on residue. (Not burnt-off as I said in the video - der!) I use it on my glass hob and on the glass door and base of the oven and it works beautifully to remove burnt on crap without scratching the surface. So I thought it would work for the iron ... and yes it does - without too much effort either! Sometimes I cant believe how smart I am!
So to clean your mucky iron use Hob Brite for sparkling clean hobs AND IRONS!
btw ... my family and friends are sure to disown me when they see this attempt at a home-grown video! Sorry peeps! Its just a bit of fun of though ... filmed using photobooth on my mac!
