So recently whenever I've been ironing my shirts for work I have found that when I do the collar of cuffs, the iron will sometimes leave a brown stain, almost as if it is burning the shirts. I don't believe that is would be burning them as it is only the cuffs and collars that suffer this fate but the rest of the shirt is fine.
Just before / when it leaves the mark the iron seems to become 'sticky', ie. not gliding over the shirt surface as easily as it normally does. (I don't know if that is key but thought it might be worth mentioning).
Now I don't know whether this is because the iron is dirty or a different reason but I am looking for handy / easy ways to:
- Clean the iron
- Remove the marks from the shirts
- Prevent this from happening in the future
If anyone else has experienced this I would very much like to here how you sorted it (preferably not by getting a new iron).
