What's going on with my iron?

Recommended Posts

I iron nearly every day, but something is wrong with my iron. It's not gliding over the fabric like it's supposed to all of a sudden. It's "sticking," almost as if I have it on the wrong fabric setting when I don't.


It does look like there may be some sort of film on the metal plate, so I'm thinking that could be it. I have no idea what it is, where it could have come from, or the best way to get rid of it. Water didn't, and I'm afraid to use chemicals because I don't want any residue.


Would a white vinegar solution maybe take care of it? Something else? I really don't want to buy a new iron for something that's probably very simple to take care of if I only knew how.

Well now that you've attached a photo I realize I've seen this a zillion times over the years but never paid any attention to it. I'll go that route.
