2. Clean your iron with salt.
The majority of us have burned ourselves on a hot iron at least once in our lives, but here is a good trick on how to clean it in case you don’t have special chemicals or time to shop for them. Take several tablespoons of salt and spread it on a soft cloth. Rub the iron with this cloth until all the marks and spots vanish. After that, wait till the iron is cool and rub it with a wet cloth.
