My ds used spray starch to iron his dress uniform and now there is
that lovely black gunk on the bottom of my iron.
I know the commercial paste stuff works pretty well as I've used it
before. However, I'm looking for an alternative method.
I'd thought of steel wool, but I'm worried about scratching the sole
I was in the cooking chat group discussing rabbit when I realised that
Barbecue Bob hasn't posted here for a long time with news of his bunny
establishment. So many posters have disappeared of late I am beginning to
suspect a spaceship has beamed them away.
Anyway I am still here though I am sadly lacking in time of late.
I have used wet steel wool and washing up liquid on a warm metal sole with
success and also a red hot iron on clean white cotton gets yukky stuff off
sometimes. I think it may depend on what type of iron plate. Perhaps a paste
of bicarb rubbed over would work too.
Hope you're well dear.

We have to ask, if she's not well it may affect her cleaning ability, then
it becomes very much on topic. It is also polite. If you wish to hang around

Hello, Mrs. Bonk,
I'm quite well, thank you :-)
I've tried a number of things with a little success. Unfortunately
the worst of it is burnt on. The bright side is that it's an
inexpensive iron and I can replace it. I'll keep this one handy for
ds to use on his uniforms, that way I won't care how it's treated.
I did get it cleaned up enough to accomplish my task at hand, which is
to get some sewing projects finished :-)
Thanks for your advice. And I hope Bob is okay!
Get your head out of the sand. Throw the iron away and phone your
county mental health services. We need to find out why he sprayed
starch on a woolen uniform.
To modern psychiatry, his problem may not be as hopeless as you fear.

Nan's email address suggests that the lights are on but nobody is @
home. That could be why Bob expressed his concern in such a forthright
manner. I'm sure he would not have offered advice without first
consulting a mental-health professional or talk-show host about her ds.
He did not accuse Nan of being rude or ugly. To follow his fine
example, I will not accuse you of those things.
Starching a woolen suit with a hot iron would make a terrible smell, but
I don't think we should joke at Nan's expense. Maybe she couldn't smell
it because she was suffering from seasonal allergies, and allergies are
no laughing matter.
