A dirty iron can cause bigger problems than wrinkles. Dirt and grime from your iron's soleplate can transfer to your clothes, and the heat from the iron can instantly set those stains, making them nearly impossible to remove. Regular cleaning of your iron's soleplate will keep it working its best. An iron with a stainless steel soleplate can be cleaned using items you probably already have around the house.
