A CLEAN iron!

Do you remember my "Blocking" Fiasco? No? Here's the link

Here's the resulting iron. And then I was able to get the corn fibers off. I'm not sure if I'm ready to touch this iron on fabric again, but it's definitely good enough to "hover" it over items for steam blocking. I let the iron cool completely, unplugged it, and scraped the corn fibers off the iron with a nylon Pampered chef square, you know the little scrape-y thing they give you when you buy a baking stone? Anyway, that's what I used, then I wiped it off with vinegar/water on a soft washcloth.
To answer Haley's question from yesterday's post... The yarn is either Red Heart SuperSaver or TLC Essentials (or both, I don't think the light gray comes in the Essentials) So, more than likely, the Gray is Red Heart Super Saver and the White and Black are TLC Essentials. I have an e-mail in to the buyer of this project requesting that I learn the fate of it and if it is still going to be used, or if it is off in forgotten storage land. Maybe they just forgot about it and needed a reminder? Or maybe they did place it somewhere and I never saw it? Inquiring minds want to know!

Looks like you got most of it off. Good job! Experience is the best teacher and now when this happens to someone else, you can tell them what to do. :-)
