This week we address one of those pesky, mid-project problems. Imagine this… You’re in the middle of a project and you’re working with one of Pellon®’s fusible interfacings. Everything is going well until the dog barks, distracting you just enough so that you end up with a bit of adhesive on your iron. Have no fear! There is an easy solution.

Q: “I got adhesive on my iron. What do I do?”
A: To remove any fusible residue from your iron, we recommend that you use a Hot Iron Cleaner, a product that can be found on the notions wall of your local fabric or quilt store. It is a thick cream that is applied to your iron. Be sure to follow the directions carefully as this product is applied to a HOT iron and we don’t want you to get burned! If you do a lot of fusing, we would recommend that you purchase a silicone sole plate like Iron-Safe® that fits over the bottom of your iron. Iron-Safe® can be found in many local fabric shops or you can order one online right here.
