How to Clean an Iron With Vinegar

5 Minutes
After trying different methods to clean the stubborn gunk off my iron, I finally found a great way that worked! Of course it was vinegar. This stuff is amazing! and to loosen up the toughest little parts, baking soda helped too!
Before and after
By using vinegar to rub off the easy stuff and 'ironing' the baking soda, the iron went from gross to new!
Rubbing with vinegar will take off most of the gunk.
'ironing' the baking soda soaked with vinegar took off all the hard gunk.
