    Fabric softener sheet works wonders! Use while iron is still warm

    the best way believe it or not is to heat iron on full,get a hard tablet etc paracetamol,cocodamol and rub it in the burn mark,it just desolves the stain then rub off with a cloth. be carefull not to burn fingers as the tablet melts so you might need a few.
