Getting Stuck on Muck Off Your Iron

It's been a long time since I've added to this blog.  Everybody needs a break, including me!

It's a great, albeit chilly day in Arizona today.  I had to laugh, a friend of mine photoshopped a picture of her nephew ice fishing in MN on top of her backyard swimming pool here in AZ.

Today I ironed a bunch.  First I must add, I have been doing the old fashioned spring cleaning, the kind where you empty every drawer, closet and cupboard and scrutinize each item to besure it still has a purpose in your life.  If not it is tossed or donated.  I must admit, I even put some items on eBay.
But I digress....

Today I cleaned my sewing cabinet.  I have all kinds of pellon and fusible web.  If you don't know what that is, look it up, I won't be going into it on this post. It was all bunched up on a gob.  I thought I'd iron it and store it in nice, neat little piles.  Bad idea.  It stuck glued to the bottom of my iron. What to do, I love this iron.  Look up the answer on the internet.  Low and behold, it worked like a charm.  If you think you know the answer, you are probably wrong.

What they suggested and I followed through and did, was to plug in the iron and get it very hot. Then iron over a piece of dryer sheet.  The gob of glue adheres to the dryer sheet.  Voila!  Magic! Tell me the truth, did you guess the solution correctly?
