Cleaning fan reveals hack for removing burn stains from your iron using paracetamol

WE can't deny that we leave it days (sometimes even weeks) before finally making a start on the pile of ironing gathering dust in the corner.

So with that in mind, it's hardly surprising that cleaning our actual iron isn't exactly high up on our list of priorities.

However, one savvy woman has revealed how she makes this chore an absolute breeze thanks to her clever life hack.

Posting on the Facebook group Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It, the cleaning fan explained how she used a paracetamol to get rid of any burn marks on her iron.

Sharing a video of the life hack, she wrote: "For those wondering about the trick to remove burn marks on your iron using paracetamol. Here it is for you, it really does work!

"Put your iron on Med/High setting. Use a paracetamol tablet (not a capsule). Hold the tablet on the iron until it starts to melt, then rub over burn mark and wipe away. Voila!"

However, the cleaning fan stressed that you shouldn't use coated tablet if you're planning on trying this at home as it'll leave a sticky residue.

So how does it work? Well some paracetamol tablets contain silicon dioxide which is slightly abrasive and works to remove the burn marks without scratching the surface.

Needless to say, other members of the group were amazed by how well it worked.

One replied: "I need to remember to do this!"

Another added: "Wow!!"

Meanwhile, a third suggested: "I’ve always used toothpaste but will give this a go next time."
