I've been considering a new iron. My old iron was still getting hot, but the steam holes were clogged and it was dirty.
When I saw this product (at Bed, Bath and Beyond), I decided to give it a try. Why add to the landfill if I don't have to, right?

Can this iron be saved?
Will Barb ever trust it again?
Is the iron doomed to the landfill?
For the answers to these and other burning questions;
