Vinegar and Baking Soda Will Quickly Make Your Iron Spotless Again!

If you do a lot of fusible applique, and even if you don’t, you may find a lot of gunk on the bottom of your iron. Have you ever had that stuff transfer to what you’re ironing? Not good. It’s not easy to get that stuff off of fabric once it’s on there.

Fortunately, there’s an easy and inexpensive way to return your iron to like-new condition. Vinegar and baking soda will remove that ironed on gunk in a jiffy.

It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
