Woman shares iron cleaning hack and the results speak for themselves

Who knew one pill could be so versatile?

A mum from Sydney has shared the ultimate hack to making her old iron look brand new!

Using two unlikely household items - Panadol tablets and a pair of tweezers - Joanne completely removed the black marks which appeared to be stained on her appliance.

Taking to a popular Facebook page, Mums Who Cook, Clean and Organise, Joanne wrote: “It worked, amazing. How did someone come up with this?” 

She simply heated up the iron and then held the tablet with tweezers before rubbed it over the black marks.

And no, she wasn't scrubbing for hours. Once the marks disappeared, Joanne mentioned she wiped the iron down with vinegar to show off the stunning results.

Joanne only tried the hack after members advised it was the perfect way to clean a stained iron.

Shortly after her post was shared, fellow cleaning enthusiasts were quick to commend her on her efforts.

“It works – kicking myself I didn’t take a before and after shot,” one said.

 “Wow I’m blown away at the amazing results, and just from using a Panadol tablet,” another added.

As are we!
