  • I use a hand held steamer, but I remember my mom a steal wool pad to remove burnt on clothing. Now this was fine for irons at the time, I don't know about those used today and the material they are made of. Another thing I remember her doing was wetting a towel and ironing over again and again until the burnt clothing was removed.

  • Fabric stores will sell iron cleaner.

  • I purchased this steamer rather than an iron, and i know I made the right determination. It is compact (could fit into a shoebox), simple to operate, and really steams! It really works very well to be so small and simply designed. I think for that money, you can not do much better. It would even do well for traveling - I think it says this from the product information, but I did my worries. This task probably would not take up any further room in a very suitcase than the usual blowdryer. I'm over joyed with my purchase and i would certainly suggest it
