Keep that soulllllplate clean

Ironing crappy nylon socks on the hottest temperature is good for neither the socks nor the iron. Hated those old socks from high school anyway.

Rowenta sells a soulplate cleaner ($9.99 at Target) which did an amazing job of bringing my soulplate back to like-new condition! It is so slick now, the iron slides over the board by itself (off, of course)
