Hi Libby is it the iron itself or an ironing board that is stained? If its the iron itself I would try a magic eraser.
Here ya go.
You can also try white toothpaste and a damp toothbrush. A dab of toothpaste on the brush. Let it foam as you brush
Libby: I've used a product like this with good success
Make sure the iron is off and the heat plate is cool.
Hi Libby, hope this video helps you out
That depends on whether the iron is stainless steel or teflon.
Some cleaners are too harsh for non-stick coatings.
Hi! I take an old washcloth or towel, wring out excess water after wetting it. Heat the iron. On a safe surface iron the heck out that cloth! Let the iron cool and then scrub it with a green scrubby. Repeat if needed.
We had an ironing lady years ago who would use the bars of sunlight soap. She would wet a tea towel and rub lots of the sunlight soap onto the cloth and then rub the hot iron over the soap then rub it onto a second rag for cleaning. She would swear by it.
There are some good tips here!
