Default Gunky iron

Maybe try some "Goo-Gone" if you have some handy.... You'll probably get
some residue (soapy water will take the slippery stuff off - then iron on
old muslin till you KNOW that it's gone.
I think maybe picking up a tube of Iron-Off by Dritz might be a smart
investment for the future, tho.

I was pressing on some Daisy Scout patches today, and grabbed a bit of
handy fabric to use as a press cloth. Ooops! The iron had some gunk on it
and it transfered to this lovely yellow sun fabric I have!

So, 2 questions. How do I clean the gunk off my iron, using only things I
have in the house -

I had some Iron Off, but can't find it, and didn't want to make a special
trip to the store. It's definately on the list for next time I'm at Joann's!

Ok, I am wondering how you lose a tube of iron off? I know they steal
a lot of my sewing stuff here but that beats all Wendy.
Maybe if you tie a towel on the table leg you will find it (or remember
where you had it).
Isn't it nice to have such piddly problems? : )

Huh. Now the Goo-Gone is missing. I'm beginning to suspect a conspiracy.

It better not be! It's only a few months old. The real culprit here is
someone who ironed on Cub Scout badges without spousal assistance.
