Who has not burnt a cloth before using an iron? Not only is your clothe ruined, the stain or burn mark on your iron may be equally frustrating. Do you now have to purchase another new iron just because of one careless mistake to complete your daily chores? Surely you do not want that unnecessary expense, but if you continue using the iron, your other clothes may also get brown marks on them.

Whether your iron is stained due to overheating or a burnt cloth, it is possible to remove it effectively using a natural way without the need to resort to chemicals. Be very careful when dealing with a burn stain on the iron. Some people resort to using another sharp object or a scourer to scrub the marks or stains off an iron, but be reminded that this will definitely scratch the iron surface, thus damaging it. Also remember not to use any abrasive on the iron to remove the stains as this too can lead to further damage.

To remove the burnt remnants off the iron naturally, all you need is:
One fresh banana leaf; and a dry cloth.

1) Heat up your iron for 30-45 seconds.
2) With the banana leaf facing upwards, iron the banana leaf for 5-10 seconds. (You will notice that the black stains are beginning to stick on the banana leaf)
3) Immediately wipe the iron plate with dry cloth to completely remove the remaining black stain.

And there you have it. A natural and chemical-free method to remove stubborn stains off an iron. You can now keep the extra money that you have just saved from buying a new iron so that it can be better spent elsewhere.

    I have one iron that I've stored away for 2 years coz of the stains. I shall try it in the next few days to see if it works.

    But where can I get fresh banana leaves in England?

  3. Anonymous says:

    Really??? It's just so simple as that??? Has anyone tried it before?

  4. Devi Ramdas says:

    I believe you can get your leaves from any Indian grocery store in the UK. I know Heathrow has many little stores that would sell you some. Whereabouts in the UK are you living Linda?

    Swell!! This is one of the coolest tip I've ever read online. Lol

  6. Earl H. says:

    This is a really cool magazine. It is so amazing. I went through all the rest of the other articles. They're just so informative and helpful in our daily lives. There should be more of such websites out there. Thanks for the tips!

    Miss, how you got an idea of choosing banana leaves over other leaves. What's your scientific explanation for it?

  8. Wong Eileen says:

    Anonymous, not everything requires a scientific explanation. So long it works, I don't think anyone really cares. This is a natural solution passed down from the older generations. Almost everyone from anywhere has their own "grandmother tips" for soothing an ache, polishing silver or even how to stop a bleed.

  9. Irene Hartmann says:

    Oh yes.. Another banana leaf remedy. My grandmother once showed me that banana leaves can be used as a dressing for mild bleeding when we wrap it around the wound. Sis burnt her iron last week. Will tell her to try this!
