How to clean fabric that melted into the iron
To remove fabric or any dirt from your iron’s soleplate, you should use the Philips Cleaning Stick following these steps:
If your iron has a dial, set the temperature dial setting on the soleplate to between “1 dot” and “2 dot” (If your iron does not have a dial, skip this step)
Unplug the iron and let it rest on its heel with a piece of rag cotton cloth underneath
Apply the cleaning stick over the stained area once or twice
Wipe off the stain and liquid from the soleplate with the piece of rag cloth
Clean off the remaining wax in the steam vents with a cotton bud and by steam ironing over the rag cloth
