  • What you need: Cotton balls, rubbing alcohol and a warm, damp cloth

    What you do: When your flat iron is completely cool (and unplugged), dip a couple of cotton balls in the rubbing alcohol and gently swab them to clean the plates. When you’re done, wipe down the entire flat iron with the cloth.

    When you should do it: You should actually be cleaning your flat iron at least once a week.
