Oh wow! I think I never realized how dirty my curling iron was until I started smelling that disgusting burnt smell on my hair. I was wondering what that smell was.

The built-up gunk on my curling iron to be specific! That brown, yucky stuff that you see on my Hot Tools Curling iron is all there from hairspray and hair styling products from my hair!  I almost convinced myself to get a new curling iron, but I love both of my irons so much that thought it would worth to give it a shot and try to clean it first.

  1. Dip the toothbrush into rubbing alcohol
  2. then dip the toothbrush into the baking soda and brush your iron with it.
