How I cleaned my steam iron.

This morning I was ironing when a brown synthetic fabric sticked to the plate and left a big amount of residues on it.
I did not have the proper cleaner, so what to do?
The iron cleaner I usually buy, is a white stick of some waxy material that when you pass it on the hot plate, it melts, then you pass the iron on a cloth, so the product and the dirt transfer on it.
Hmmm.....what if I use a candle instead?
I had a white candle, I passed it on the hot plate, it melted, I quickly passed the iron on an old cloth, result? the iron plate was perfectly cleaned!
And there was nor wax, nor dirt on it.
I know, it was somehow an hazard, however I had to iron, and I have something new to post ;-)
