1. Rubbing alcohol-Make sure your curling iron is turned off and unplugged. Get a rag slightly damp with warm water and start to wipe the build up off. Use a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol and start wiping the iron as well. If the build up is too stubborn, you can use a toothbrush to help get it clean. Then use your wet rag again and wipe the alcohol off.
2. Acetone-nail polish remover. A little elbow grease and acetone will get your iron looking brand new.
3. Lemon juice- Soak a rag in lemon juice. Make sure your iron is unplugged and turned off. Place the rag around the iron and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The hairspray build up should come right off.
4. Baking soda- Make a little paste out of baking soda and water. Apply it with a cotton ball or a rag. Again, make sure your iron is turned off and unplugged.
Clean them regularly to keep from getting too much build up.
These tips sure do the trick and keep our irons looking and working like new.
