The Iron Shine Cleaning Pen is innovative across the board. The pen style applicator, scrubby tip, and water-soluble cleaning fluid are a approach to easily maintaining a clean iron with no mess or harsh fumes. The Iron Shine allows you to control the clean – see what you are doing, clean the whole iron or spot clean, and safely work with the iron off. It is safe for metal or coated soleplates and is good for multiple cleanings. It will remove adhesives, starches, and build up from the soleplate.
