I bought this to clean my 3 year old steam iron which had lot of burn-stuff. I wish I had before picture but it really cleaned the iron quite easily. I was almost giving it 5 stars but refrained for 1 con. Why follows:
Good because: - Really cleans and removes all the burned-on stuff on iron plate making it clean and good to use. - Easy to use - I used my old kitchen rag, heated the iron (on cotton) and cleaned it in circular motion. (Just be careful about 'hot iron') - Cheap! For 6 bucks I saved almost $100 worth I would have spent on steam iron.
Bad because: - It really needs to be throughly cleaned after use. It almost left some sticky substance on my pant I was about to iron (Warranting it 1 start). Luckily the label mentioned that just wash the clothes to remove any substance. And yes it came off - just had to scrub my pants a little in warm water and all is well. So lesson learnt really really clean the iron plate with a cloth and before you iron your new pants/shirt just iron on old towel to make sure all is well.
This tube is also going to last me 5- 7 cleans. SO worth it and works well.
